Overall Satisfaction with McAfee Data Center Security Suite

The suite is fabulous and we have been using it past 3 years for database activity monitoring, virtual patching on a real-time basis, and preventing intrusions. The reporting feature can be used intensively.
  • The virtual patching feature works nicely.
  • The agent works well with different platforms.
  • The reporting feature is good.
  • All database activities can be tracked if configured properly.
  • Support is a major issue. You need Mcafee premium service for the expected expertise.
  • Deployment on Sun Solaris.
  • Vulnerability Manager should accept customizations.
  • We think the current tool is good and has been providing us a good ROI.
The Forecepoint product which we evaluated was better but this was a decision taken by the entire group.

Do you think Trellix Data Center Security Suite delivers good value for the price?

Did Trellix Data Center Security Suite live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Trellix Data Center Security Suite go as expected?


Would you buy Trellix Data Center Security Suite again?


The suite works well to monitor the day to day unattended activities from support personnel, but in case I need to micro-manage, there are no inbuilt rules and I need to customize the same.
