I have McAfee at work and decided to purchase it for use at home as well. At work, between all the different emails you receive with links, or websites you visit, its easy for people to fall for a phishing attempt or potentially download a harmful file, especially those who are less tech savvy. McAfee helps block potential harmful websites and files, and ensures the safety of data and information across the organization. The automatic updates and constant monitoring are a reassurance that its always working in the background and up-to-date.
  • Notifies you instantly when it finds a threat or potential threat
  • Stays up-to-date
  • Useful for mobile devices and laptops
  • User friendly
  • Random McAfee popups can be annoying
  • Sometimes it blocks websites I need to use for work as being potentially harmful
  • Scans can sometimes take a while
I think McAfee is great to have whether it's for work or for personal use. While it has some drawbacks, I like the peace of mind of feeling safe when I'm browsing the web/email, especially when my computer has sensitive/confidential information, knowing that McAfee will immediately detect any threats. The UI is extremely easy to navigate, which makes it easy for users regardless of how tech-savvy they are.
  • Blocks unsafe websites
  • Virus detection and removal
  • Protects sensitive data
I haven't used Norton for a while, but when I did use it I felt that it slowed down my computer and had constant pop-ups, which were both equally frustrating and annoying. It was also very difficult to remove from my computer.

Malwarebytes is a great, straightforward program I've used for virus scanning. It's pretty bare bones but I think if you just want something to scan for viruses it gets the job done quickly and reliably.

In my opinion McAfee offers similar benefits as Norton but its more intuitive and doesn't impact system performance.

McAfee products have a wide variety of uses from endpoint security to network security and event management solutions. Ideal McAfee solutions are used throughout organizations to ensure complete coverage. These solutions address and mitigate threat in regards to cyber security.
  • Integration - McAfee builds their products to ensure integration with pre-existing products is seamless.
  • Customizability - Granular management of policies and security controls, able to tune and mold solutions to individual organizations.
  • Reliability - When configured properly, McAfee solutions rarely have issues. In the case they do, support is phenomenal.
  • Price - Extremely high price tag for many of the solutions.
[McAfee is well suited for] Any size organization needing endpoint security or network security mitigations.

McAfee was used by my team and I to secure our data and networks against external cyber threats. McAfee was and is utilized by my entire consulting staff to provide our needed security solutions for our needs and those of our clients.
  • Excellent protection of all internet connected assets on our VPN.
  • Constant updates of needed security patches that ensure our network and systems are protected from current and emerging/potential threats.
  • Prompt and reliable customer service that provides needed answers and expertise in a crisis.
  • Strategic whitepapers on emerging cyber threats and McAfee solutions to resolve them before they become a problem for my team or our clients.
  • Updates while always current and valuable occur very often and need to be administered constantly if your systems administrators do not schedule them on a regular basis.
  • Depending on your system it can be a resource burden when running in the background.
  • Interface can be difficult to navigate at times for non-experienced users.
The McAfee suite of internet security products has been my go-to source for internet security for over 7 years. Featuring a snappy interface, frequent updates, and an amazing customer service and support system, McAfee delivers a high quality enterprise level security product at a significant cost saving value to the user. It has been frequently recommended to my staff and my clients to provide their cyber security needs.
  • McAfee briefings have alerted us to threats BEFORE they happen allowing us to shore up networks and security.
  • Frequent updates keep our system protected and provide valuable usage and system data that lets us determine the overall efficiency of our network and systems in one suite of products.
  • McAfee's constant 24/7 protection has saved money by assuring our systems are protected and therefore have saved us time by avoiding costly reconstiution of compromised systems.
  • Symantec Norton (SMB),AVG
McAfee ultimately gives you the most bang for your buck so to speak, enabling you to have essential protection at a reasonable cost.
McAfee has consistently delivered on its stated goals of providing comprehensive protection for our networks and systems. Due to their excellent work and follow through I have been, and will continue to be a loyal customer.
