Overall Satisfaction with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

McAfee EPO is used across our entire organization, it centrally manages the AV and protects every server and workstation we have. It's a single pane of glass to manage updating and provisioning of our corporate AV solution. It's used to protect both servers and workstations against malware and can detect more targeted attacks.
  • Centrally manages AV - the management tools are excellent.
  • Allows policy creation and deployment.
  • Non-Windows client support is patchy. Linux versions do work - sometimes.
  • GUI is not that intuitive.
  • It's met our compliance objectives.
  • It keeps our servers and workstations free of malware.
We selected McAfee EPO partly because we were already using McAfee VSE, but mostly because there are very few other AV management packages out there that offer the same level of enterprise management tools. That's where it really shines - deployment and management of AV in a large organization of Windows servers and workstations.
McAfee enterprise support is pretty responsive when you need to get hold of them. It can take a few emails back-and-forth before you get to the right person/team, but once you do, they're very knowledgeable and helpful. They've certainly resolved every issue I've raised with them in a reasonably fast time.

No

Would you buy McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator again?

Yes

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.
