- A unified dashboard view provides security intelligence across different endpoints.
- Allowed us to access our third party IT infrastructure from a single security management console.
- Where workflows were cumbersome and messy this allowed them to be more streamlined.
- Setup was more time consuming than expected.
- Consolidated with McAfee products better than other vendor products.
- Support for lesser-known vendors was not available.
McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator Review: "MCAfee EPO- solution to your organisation end point protection"
- We can deploy easily to wide range of machines across the organization using ePolicy Orchestrator.
- Easily manageable and better UI which helps users understand what is the machine, what kind of OS it has, what are the detections it found in that machine, and what are the things that are blocked.
- McAfee helps us in detecting threats across the machines with rogue sensors which will be used in detection of unmanaged systems in the organization.
- It has a slow mechanism when adding custom threat feeds. For example, if McAfee didn't have a signature or detection about a new virus and we try to add it to our console it is like a really big process in adding that to our available signatures.
- Whenever a scan is performed, the system CPU utilization goes up 100 percent.
- Installation fails due to difference in timestamp when we try to shuffle between packages.
- Static malware scans for known bad processes and files works well and can be schedules on endpoints easily
- Preventing users from accessing USB drives and other peripherals is easily configured. We can also allow users to access to USB drives with user codes for the times they need it for business reasons.
- ePO provides access into our MSME software so that we're not managing many different products from different locations.
- In recent years the console has gotten much easier to navigate even though there is a ton of information to be accessed.
- Within DLP the email alerting you cannot stipulate specific vendor id's or types of devices to alert on. It will just alert on everything no if it gets hit by any policy.
- Because the scans are for static/known processes and files you will not be protected by unknown/0-day malware.
- There have been many times that a DAT update will find and alert very old .js files and it never caught before and are many times flagged as Artemis generic. The FP rate could be improved upon.
- Price, it's fairly expensive.
- Systems Manager. We are able to view all the systems in our environment in one dashboard. This gives us the chance to see when PCs last communicated with our McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) server and if they are up to date on their virus definitions.
- Ease of pushing out anti-virus to our endpoints.
- Agentless Virtual Machine anti-virus. No need to have anti-virus on the VM it goes on the ESXi host which scans the datastores.
- Clunky interface.
- Lots of information but not presented neatly.
- More configuration needed to stop some of the bigger exploits.
It's great for managing a large company with a lot of endpoints. It's a great way to feel confident that your environment is secure. It gives a great perspective of what is happening in your environment and helps to pinpoint any suspicious activity that is going on.
It's not very appropriate for smaller organizations. Unless there is a dedicated person working through it all day it could become overwhelming for a small team.
