Excellent integration capabilities, good alerts, and very stable

Pros and Cons

  • "In terms of their compatibility with major cloud providers, in terms of their abilities, capabilities, and features, they exceed everyone's capabilities in the CASB market."
  • "One thing that can be improved is their ability to integrate with other web proxies to discover unsanctioned IP apps."

What is our primary use case?

The solution is basically it's a cloud access security broker. It's basically the leading cloud access security broker in the market. If you are talking about getting controlling access to AWS, Azure or Google cloud, or most of the major cloud providers, they can integrate that to help protect an organization from data loss, breaches, or from unauthorized access in general.

How has it helped my organization?

I actually had an encounter with a government entity. They had a lot of their staff leaking government data, and they were using a website, a known website called WeTransfer. It's a Chinese website that's used to transfer big files without you needing to create an account. Users in the company were basically, whenever they wanted to transfer files, doing it through this site and unintentionally leaking data.

This week, the POC installed the McAfee web gateway, integrated the MVISION Cloud, and got insights. A lot of their business was done on WhatsApp within their systems. An yet, until this moment, they had no visibility over this. Now they have it. Now they know, and they can initiate changes.

What is most valuable?

What I really like about the product is something called the ability to view the sanctioned IP apps, which is a major challenge for organizations today. There are sanctioned IP apps or unsanctioned IP apps. In an organization, you will find employees that will use services or applications for the business, which are not authorized by the IT department, and the organization fails to have visibility over this.

What McAfee can provide is full details into what your users are doing on the cloud. For example, lots of employees may be using WhatsApp for conducting critical business workflows, and yet their organization is not permitting them to use WhatsApp. Without a solution such as this, the company will never find out if they actually are using WhatsApp and to what rates. With MVISION Cloud and their web gateway, companies basically get visibility and insights into what their users are using on the cloud.

The product has the ability to provide insights and also to advise on misconfigurations on the cloud. For example, I may be a cloud customer and I'm using IS workloads or infrastructure and service workloads on Azure. I may have object storage configured on Azure, however, this object storage didn't get secured properly. It was publicly open. The system can suggest changes to alert you to this item and advise on how to fix the issue.

With MVISION Cloud, you can actually get detection notices. It will notify you, tell you, hey, be careful. You have object storage that is open to the public. You should lock it down, should have restricted access. You should have some credentials here or there. It will basically act like an advisor for your cloud configuration as well. This is what I really like about it, to be honest. It can tell you if something can go wrong before it happens. It allows you to fix things before situations can get out of hand.

In terms of their compatibility with major cloud providers, in terms of their abilities, capabilities, and features, they exceed everyone's capabilities in the CASB market.

Their integration capabilities are vast. They seem to be able to integrate all major clouds. 

The solution is very stable.

The solution can scale.

Technical support has been very helpful.

What needs improvement?

The solution is the leader in the market right now. It's hard to consider where it falls short, as it is so far ahead of everything else.

One thing that can be improved is their ability to integrate with other web proxies to discover unsanctioned IP apps. That can be room for improvement.

I'd love to see an on-prem version of the product. Instead of McAfee providing the service, it should be also software available for customers in the market to install on their data centers.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution has been very stable. We haven't had issues with it. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's reliable.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's not software that you can install. Scalability is on McAfee's end. It's not on the end-user or the partner or any of them, as it's a cloud service basically. However, it scales to meet your company's needs.

We have about ten customers currently using the solution.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support has been very good. It's amazing, especially for the MVISION Cloud portfolio as it's a different team. In general, it's good. We are quite satisfied with their level of support.

How was the initial setup?

You don't install the solution. The dashboard comes from McAfee Cloud. You just integrate it with your cloud, and you enter your credentials to your cloud providers. If you want, you can integrate it with an on-premise McAfee web gateway to get insights, shadow IP, sanction IT apps, look for unsanctioned apps, and whatnot. However, it's not software that you can take and install wherever you like. It's a service, basically. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Honestly speaking, there is no competitor for MVISION Cloud. There are competitors in the market, of course, in the CASB market, lots of them. However, there's no one that's reached the level of MVISION Cloud just yet.

What other advice do I have?

I don't have much experience with McAfee MVISION Cloud, however, I do have a good understanding of it. I also managed to pitch it and demo it to one customer and sold it a couple of times. 

It's originally not a McAfee product. It belonged to a company called Skyhigh before, which was acquired by McAfee. 

I'd rate the solution at a nine out of ten. I don't believe in perfect solutions, however, this is quite good. I haven't ever seen anything quite like it. 

I'd recommend it to other users. If a company is having workloads on the cloud, whether it be on Office 365 or AWS or Azure or Google cloud or IBM cloud, whatever cloud, it's highly recommended for them to at least consider MVISION Cloud as it can really help them secure their access to their cloud workloads. Especially those customers who have a hybrid cloud. They will most likely want a CASB that will be able to manage both clouds from the same dashboard.

Scalable, flexible, and easy to use

Pros and Cons

  • "Overall, the performance is good."
  • "McAfee needs to add more products that could be managed from the cloud."

What is our primary use case?

If you don't need an on-premises console for central management, this solution works very well. That's its main benefit. It's useful for companies that have a workforce that is dispersed as opposed to in a central location.

What is most valuable?

The solution is very easy to use. It's easy to navigate.

The product has proven itself to be very stable.

The solution is scalable.

We find it to be quite flexible.

Overall, the performance is good.

Due to the fact that it's in the cloud, you don't have to maintain it. It's maintained by McAfee. You don't need to worry about updates and upgrades.

What needs improvement?

McAfee needs to add more products that could be managed from the cloud. At the moment, not all of their endpoint products can be managed from this console. I'd like McAfee endpoint products to be managed from the cloud console. It's my understanding that they do plan to do this. It's just a matter of time. 

There are still a lot of customers who are demanding on-premise solutions. That's the situation on the ground here. People do not easily switch to cloud products. They're sticking to on-premise solutions so that they can fully control their IT. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We've been using the solution for a few years at this point. We've used it pretty much since it's been in the market.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The solution is quite stable. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's reliable and the performance is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The product scales quite well. If you need to expand the solution you can.

We have several customers on the product currently.

We would like to increase usage, however, in Serbia, many clients still prefer on-premises solutions.

How are customer service and technical support?

We don't have a need to use technical support a lot, as we are doing the support for our customers, mainly. However, when we have a ticket, they solve it in a normal amount of time. I'm satisfied. I haven't had any issues at all.

How was the initial setup?

There is no installation due to the fact that everything is in the cloud. You can do the installation on the end points, however, that's normal.

What about the implementation team?

We're resellers. We can assist our clients in the implementation.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Customers do need to pay a licensing fee in order to use the solution. I cannot speak to the exact price.

What other advice do I have?

We are resellers. We have clients using the product.

I'd recommend the solution to others. I would rate it at a nine out of ten overall.

Pros and Cons

  • "The product has a very high rating from reviewers. It's a well-respected product."

The product has a very high rating from reviewers. It's a well-respected product.

The initial setup is pretty simple.

We've found the scalability potential to be good. Technical support is often helpful.

The solution is stable and the performance is good.

What needs improvement?

We haven't really had any issues with the solution. There isn't really any aspect that is lacking.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using McAfee for about ten or more years at this point. It's been about a decade. it's been a while. However, for this particular solution, it's likely been for about a year. We installed it in 2020.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability has been good so far. There are no bugs or glitches. It doesn't crash or freeze. It's very reliable. The performance is good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The scalability seems to be good. A company that would like to expand it, should be able to do si without issues. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is okay. It's fine, however, it is not consistent.

How was the initial setup?

The implementation is very straightforward and very simple. It's not overly complex or difficult. If a company needs to set it up, they shouldn't have any problems.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at Trend Micro as well. We compared it to McAfee and found that McAfee was rated much higher. Due to the higher rating, we went with McAfee. 

What other advice do I have?

We are just a customer and an end-user. We do not have a business relationship with McAfee.

We really like the company, however, and have used them for a long time. We've used them on-premises and recently moved to the cloud.

Next year, we are preparing to use a new feature of McAfee - an EDR feature.

Overall, we have been extremely satisfied with this solution. I'd give it five stars. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate the solution at a ten.

Good support, with many options for deployment model and scalability

Pros and Cons

  • "The other products that I have evaluated do not have the scalability options that McAfee has."
  • "It needs to be more user-friendly, as it is a little bit complicated to use."

What is our primary use case?

My experience with this product is from an evaluation standpoint. Since everybody is adopting cloud technologies such as SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS, they want to ensure that their data is secure. This product can be used to help people access our cloud applications securely, control users, and manage data movement over the cloud with respect to our data classification policies.

We have conducted a PoC but have not used it in our production environment.

What is most valuable?

They provide a variety of options for scalability, where we can use it over the cloud, or we can deploy it on-premises through our proxy. We can also use agent-based installation. Together, from a coverage point of view, the solution is pretty good. The other products that I have evaluated do not have the scalability options that McAfee has.

What needs improvement?

It needs to be more user-friendly, as it is a little bit complicated to use.

They should implement straightforward automation capabilities that include the integration of AI and ML. It should be able to handle solutions quickly whenever a rule has to be created. It should, for example, suggest to the admin that if there is any indication of data corruption then a notification will be sent. In addition, initial steps will be taken to ensure that the data is safe.

For how long have I used the solution?

We evaluated McAfee MVISION Cloud for a couple of weeks. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It is meant for large organizations and it will support more than 10,000 users.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good and they are customer-friendly. We don't use the support for MVISION Cloud but we use McAfee support for other products, and we are satisfied.

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

As part of our evaluation process, we have used several solutions from different vendors.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

This is an expensive product, although it is made for larger enterprises and not for small organizations. This is generally the case with McAfree enterprise solutions.

What other advice do I have?

This is a product that I recommend.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Good support, and the strategy works well to protect our data

Pros and Cons

  • "The support is excellent."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use this product for enterprise cloud security. My role is in strategy and security.

    What is most valuable?

    We were using MVISION for data protection.

    The most valuable feature is the support. It's the best.

    MVISION has a really good strategy and the CASB solution is excellent.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We used McAfee MVISION Cloud for two years, but have recently stopped using it.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    This is a stable product.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    It is definitely scalable.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The support is excellent.

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

    Prior to MVISION, we used dedicated security tools like endpoint protection, virus scan, and so forth.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    This is an expensive product, but you have to compare that with other solutions that are on the market. We have a good relationship with McAfee and have a lot of their products, so we do not pay the same price that an end-user would.

    Which other solutions did I evaluate?

    We are currently evaluating another product and will not be using MVISION in the future. One of the products that we are looking at is MVISION for the cloud.

    We evaluated Netskope, but we were offered a better price for MVISION.

    What other advice do I have?

    Personally, I have always found that McAfee has good products. This is a product that I recommend. My advice is to compare this product against other solutions to ensure that you receive the features that you want.

    I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

    Reliable, good pricing, but complicated installation

    Pros and Cons

    • "I found the solution to be stable."
    • "The solution is hard to configure, our team does not have specific training requirements for McAfee making it difficult."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use the solution for endpoint security. 

    What needs improvement?

    The solution is hard to configure, our team does not have specific training requirements for McAfee making it difficult. Another issue is with decreasing performance with desktop and laptop due to the solution.  

    In a future release, I would like them to add email protection as part of their offerings. 

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have been using the solution for one year.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I found the solution to be stable.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    We have not tried to expand the solution. There are 40 users using it in our organization.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup of the solution is not easy, it is complex. 

    What about the implementation team?

    The solution requires a technical team for deployment because it is challenging. 

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The price of the solution is good and we pay an annual license.

    What other advice do I have?

    I will recommend the solution to other users. However, I would suggest having a deployment team assisting with the installation. 

    I rate McAfee MVISION Cloud a seven out of ten.
