Integration with other modules allows for expansion, but the Advanced Threat Protection needs improvement

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the integration with different modules like the DLP."
  • "The advanced threat protection is not as good as our competitors."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to distribute endpoints to our clients for their networks.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the integration with different modules like the DLP.

It's a complete endpoint and you can extend the endpoint using additional modules. This is at times useful for customers with a lot of different data that they don't want to lose, so they integrate it with a DLP module to check the USB drivers and USB mass storage as an example.

What needs improvement?

The advanced threat protection is not as good as the competitors.

They are not as fast as the other competitors in detecting new threats. They can be anywhere from half a day to a day behind the other solutions before detecting the threat.

The admin interface is very old. 

In the next release, they could refresh the GUI. It would be appreciated.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable.

It works with no problem at all.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

At present, we have not scaled this solution as our clients are not large enough with only two hundred and fifty clients.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is not the best on the market, but it's not bad.

It can be difficult to speak to them. The last time that we had an issue they responded in a couple of hours and we received the file the next business day. It could have been faster.

At the present time, they are working well.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not evaluate other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Synchronizes security across the security fabric and has the ability to integrate with other vendors

Pros and Cons

  • "McAfee synchronizes security across the security fabric."
  • "They could try to introduce advanced threat detection."

What is our primary use case?

I have been using this solution for six months. We use the private on-prem deployment model. Our primary use case is for clients who have big environments. For VDIs it's a nightmare to install security software to all of the VMs. It's a bottleneck for resource consumption and highers the data consumption costs. For example, let's say we have 1,000 VMs and we want to scan all of them with an agent-based solution, it eats up a lot of resources. A company offers agentless solutions, they prepare a VM and they scan the VMs without installing an agent. That VM will take care of the scan. McAfee MOVE minimizes a lot of the overhead. 

What is most valuable?

Sophos only provides signature-based scanning, a basic antivirus. It is not enough for an advanced attack or advanced threat. It's weak. McAfee can integrate with the existing fabric. I really like this aspect. It enables all of the security parts to talk to each other. McAfee synchronizes security across the security fabric. They cross communicate. This is one aspect that is a huge gap with other security products. McAfee minimizes the threats.

What needs improvement?

They could try to introduce advanced threat detection. This could be a huge improvement because some customers don't want to buy the entire McAfee product. It should product from unknown threats as well. 

I would like to ability to mitigate advanced threats. It should be a bit stronger. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's fairly stable. It's used a lot. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's pretty scalable. It has a module architecture. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is generally responsive and has good resolutions for issues. They respond quickly. 

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I am very familiar with Sophos.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup complexity will depend on your deployment model. There is an agent-based or a non-agent based deployment with integrates with VMware NSX. 

The deployment can take around an hour and configuring it also doesn't take much time. Any agent-based solution can take some time. The non-agent based one will only take a few hours. It really varies on the environment. 

What other advice do I have?

Take a look at the other McAfee products. It integrates with other products and vendors which is unique to other vendors. No vendor is perfect in security and no vendor can provide a solution to all security problems. Having this ability is revolutionary. It enables you to combine the best of each vendor. McAfee is the way to go for threat intelligence. 

I would rate McAfee MOVE an eight out of ten.
