Overall Satisfaction with McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is used throughout the organization. It has been used for years. Because we are a Defense Contractor we rely heavily on all the benefits that EPO provides from real time virus scanning to usb peripheral detection. It is used both on the classified and unclassified sides.
  • It integrates well with Splunk
  • You get email alerts
  • It can easily manage users and groups through System Tree
  • Deployment is easy
  • DLP for USB devices
  • You can update from a single console
  • Not easy to master every component
  • Won't catch 0 Day threats
  • High CPU utilization
  • Console can be very busy looking for a new user
  • Centralized repository to upload updates for deployment (less time)
  • DLP feature locks all usb ports from one location (no need to go to every pc)
  • Email alerts for immediate remediation
  • Only need to install on the host as opposed to every VM
I have used Symantec Endpoint Encryption before. Symantec and EPO are both good in their own ways. EPO allows integration of other McAfee products. I have been using ePolicy Orchestrator for years. I have a lot of experience with the product. That is why I like it.

McAffee ePolicy Orchestrator is very well suited in large environments. You can load your updates to the repository and deploy them to every node on your network. It has great reporting and auditing features. You can control your users and groups all from the System Tree. DLP is great for USB devices. You can restrict all the ports on a computer and open them up for a limited time to plug in a device. EPO is to bulky for small networks.
