My primary use case is for endpoint security, to protect my personal information. This solution is pre-installed on the laptop given to me by my company.

To be honest, the product has just sat there. I have no idea what it does.

We started using MOVE Antivirus because our security staff required it. And I personally haven't seen the difference because I haven't had any issues so far that McAfee addresses. MOVE Antivirus is to reduce and avoid risks.

It's an antivirus solution to protect the system. We access many websites on a daily basis and are not really sure whether it's a good or a bad site.

The primary use of the solution was for malware and antivirus capabilities.

This is not something that I actively use. It is automatically installed on my PC. It's an automatic antivirus. There is nothing needed from me to get it to work. It is used for protection and it protects the computer itself.

We use it to protect our PCs and our servers. We have DLP endpoints, and we have drive encryption and endpoint security. We also use it for endpoint security on our laptops, and they do have these running on the servers.

We usually use this solution for protecting the endpoints. It is deployed centrally on all corporate workstations and laptops in my organization.

We run it across the organization for protecting the individual work locations and workstations. It could be a laptop, desktop, or server. A client version of McAfee End Point Security is installed on each and every desktop or laptop. It completely monitors all the traffic and downloads. It also scans the files that are configured to be scanned. For example, any audio files, MOV files, or large files that we download. All such files will go through the McAfee MOVE AntiVirus to ensure that the virus is not getting into our network and systems.

We use McAfee MOVE AntiVirus for a number of things - the normal endpoint firewall, DLP, solidcore, and more. We have a solution that is at the server. Then we have super agents at the branches, because we are a bank. We use McAfee Data Exchange Layer. We use also use McAfee Endpoint Security. We have all the models that come under McAfee Endpoint Security.

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

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.
