Overall Satisfaction with Trellix Endpoint Security

McAfee Endpoint Security was used in a combination for a central managed of our clients. McAfee did enable and check Bitdefender and Virus for the client was made by McAfee. An EPO server was in place for upgrading the clients with pattern and software. The solution is in place at our managed service clients for customers and was in place for our own clients, till we moved to Cisco AMP.
  • Good central management.
  • Very stable with the clients.
  • Slows down the client a little bit.
  • Additional software needed, while Cisco AMP is already installed and licensed.
  • Dependence on the whole installation at the client with all software.
  • Cisco customer not needed in parallel.
  • Good bandwidth needed for updates globally.
  • Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints
If you have Cisco tools and equipment globally in place and just for the clients additionally McAfee you should have a deeper look. We wanted to install end-2-end security over all networks and hardware. This was a big point for Cisco. For a managed client team, Cisco is a step which they do not want in the first round.
Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP) for Endpoints, Cisco Umbrella
If you deliver managed clients globally to your customer, the EPO-Server is a good tool for managing them.
The reports are very transparent and easy to present to clients. Harddisk encryption can be managed by the software, too. This is a step forward in security, too. The special thing is when using Cisco tools, e.g. AMP or Umbrella. In this scenario, McAfee additionally makes no sense.
