Over many years, McAfee has proven to be able to deliver and support on multiple levels of technological sophistication and provide superior support resources to enable a greater potential for successful implementation. In any deployment or upgrade endeavour, there will always be an amount of challenges presented both by the software and the environment. McAfee's greatest strength lies in having extremely knowledgeable and effective support personnel who can provide the eagerness and expertise to bring out the best in their capable and efficient software. They are arguably the best enterprise level security suite vendor due in large part to the superior support that they provide. Many vendors can and do compare favourably with McAfee's effectiveness ratings in providing security. In actuality, many polls and reviews have found McAfee to lag behind their competitors. However, their margin of lag is very minimal and can easily be offset by the value found in their support documentation, user community and especially their Platinum support. You lose a lot of the value of "bleeding edge" technology when you end up waiting an inordinate amount of time waiting for or even trying to find help with your problems.

We have had a strong relationship with Intel Security for 10+ years. They continue to adapt their products to effectively handle the changing threat landscape and our manageability through their EPO solution is unmatched by other security vendors. Our biggest challenge has been with disk encryption handling the change of pre-boot environments to UEFI instead of MBR setups. Also previous versions of host DLP were challenging but most of our pain points were removed with versions 9.X and above. While not listed in the drop downs, Web Gateway is an excellent product and in our opinion is the best support department at Intel Security. Also, their security conference (Focus) is extremely educational and it provides in-depth insight to the company's vision and roadmap.

Product was easy to install and rollout to the desktops. Due to the varied desktop OS and other configurations, we have had some issues being successful in managing more than 85% of the environment. Console is very useful in locating any trouble areas. Send weekly reports to management by posting on internal website.

We've had many instances where a computer hard drive was removed and it wasn't able to be used anywhere else. This was exactly what we needed and it worked flawlessly.

Suite offerings give us a complete list of options to tackle most compliance requirements. The future looks bright as McAfee has moved from Signature solutions to zero-day protection. Support of the product is very good as well.

McAfee is very focused on providing a strong product and ensuring it does what it is promissed. They are constantly in contact with us to ensure it is working properly and recommending changes/adjustments that will improve performance.

While we may not have an implementation consistent with other organization our size, they consistently pressure us to buy in at a higher teir.

The product is bloated and fat. It is inefficent. When installed with defaults, it slows the systems to a crawl for hours at a time while doing scans. Creating polices is easy, but trying to add a common exclusion for all policies is cumbersome as you need to open every created prolicy and modify them. Not bad if you have 5-10 policies, but beyond that and you can easily spend hours just updating exlusions. The products puts files and registry leys all over the place. When uninstalling, it has about an 80% success rate. Sometimes the install will also fail and a manual install is required to fix. McAfee also provides a lot of different options, but each one adds to the costs.
