[McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator] seems to be better suited to large enterprise applications... I don't feel it really suits the or self-managed SMB market. The general joe is not going to understand how to wield this product to it's full potential. For those of us managing large networks, this is a very ideal product for managing multiple sites and users.

Well, McAfee is [well suited] and will fit most of the environments. Still, that depends how well the implementation & configuration is done. Studying the environment before proceeding will give a clear idea what to deploy and for which systems. Testing the new added programs by McAfee in the software catalog is important to make sure there will be no problems or incompatibility.

Very good protection.
It comes with the basic protection, called Endpoint Security (which can be another thing to review).
If you want to go more granular, like Firewall, Web-Control, it has to be decided before buying the license.
But all those products [are] worth the investment.
Lacking on some compatibility, ex. WEBControl can be disabled from the Browsers (except IE), still place for improvement.
Hardware resources can use all endpoint resources if not configured properly.

McAffee ePolicy Orchestrator is very well suited in large environments. You can load your updates to the repository and deploy them to every node on your network. It has great reporting and auditing features. You can control your users and groups all from the System Tree. DLP is great for USB devices. You can restrict all the ports on a computer and open them up for a limited time to plug in a device. EPO is to bulky for small networks.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is best suited for the enterprise environment. If you have other McAfee products in the organization, then it is very good to have such tool in place to manage products. Helps in maintaining security posture as per organization policy by installing agents.

I would definitely recommend McAfee ePO to all companies and all IT admins/managers as a must-have to ensure the protection of the company network and data. Nowadays malicious files are evolving every day and a good system security is necessary as one of the protections, especially regarding users, as even the best spam protections can not guarantee it.

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is great for centrally managing a fleet of Windows servers and workstations. It does offer multi-OS support, but Linux clients tend to have more issues than Windows clients. Initially, excluded paths need to be set, and on Windows, it's pretty solid after that part gets dialed in right.

As quite a few of McAfee's products are owned within the organisation it made sense to review ePolicy Orchestrator. Once the decision was made to go with this product it brought together various data streams from otherwise standalone products and gave us a single view of where possible problems existed or where possible problems could exist.

What I like the most is the fact that McAfee tries many different approaches to hit its target, securing the customers. Its feature-rich reporting, dashboarding, and deployment tools are very useful. The engine is just smarter and the processor performance is very much improved. Summary Centralized control of agents to prevent local users from overriding settings is very beneficial.

MCAfee is really great end protection to any sort of organization but there is only one scenario I really feel it is inappropriate. Whenever a scan is performed, the system CPU utilization goes up 100 percent. This is one of the priority cases where McAfee needs to optimize system performance and also add customized threat feeds. If these two things are fixed, then I would definitely give a 10 to McAfee.

If you're looking for a well established product that many other products integrate with, McAfee ePO is a good choice. It provides one pane of glass to your protection infrastructure; DLP, antivirus, email protection, etc. The product, however, will NOT handle unknown/0-day threats which can be an issue in many organizations where they may be hit with ransomware targeted directly at them.

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.
