Overall Satisfaction with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator server is used to set and enforce policy for McAfee Host Protection (VirusScan, etc.), Site Advisor, and McAfee Disk Encryption enterprise-wide. The agent also gives us information on host hardware and software, location, etc. We also use it to generate reports regarding disk space and other info.
  • Applies the policy settings for the selected group
  • Keeps the hosts updated well, in general
  • Allows update of available software from within the management console
  • Assigns and runs ongoing tasks with little need for intervention
  • Provides quick high-level view of systems
  • In general, the upgrades are not easy and often fraught with errors and difficulties.
  • When there is an issue, it usually requires McAfee support to get involved.
  • Keeping track of what software updates need to be installed is often confusing.
  • Eases our management of desktops and laptops
  • Eases the management of disk encryption
  • Keeps our endpoints updated without much ongoing management

Compared to these, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator provides a much more robust and extensible all-around deployment and ongoing management solution.
Overall, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator server is a great product that we have been using for years. Support for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator can sometimes be confusing. We first have to determine whether the issue is actually the server, or if it is an issue with the product being managed.
