Use on my main PC & Laptop for security

McAfee helped me choose their software easily by providing me with a lot of detailed information and the pros to using their service. Their free trial helped me get a feel for the software & application, and I ended up purchasing their package so I could have security I needed for my computers.

Pros

McAfee has been my main security & virus screening application on my main computer (Windows) and laptop (Apple) since I first purchased both of them. I used McAfee due to the simple user interface and the accuracy. McAfee also does rather quick screenings in the background as well, so I don’t always have to go in and manually warrant a full computer scan. I find this conviennent because it usually slips my mind to do a computer scan, especially while I am busy doing work. Having a reliable virus/security screening software like this has been incredibly important for me since I am an online worker and own an online apparel business as well, meaning I absolutely need that extra layer of security on my computers to prevent me from getting hacked, spied on, losing my information, etc. I spend a lot of time using my computers and process sales online, so I cannot afford the risk of getting a virus or having anything hacked on my computer. McAfee also has regular needed updates, so it is never outdated and never working improperly.

Cons

I don’t have cons; I haven’t had to use their customer service yet, but I have heard mainly good things from others who had to use contact their customer service for any help.

Good protection against viruses and malwares.

We have been using McAfee Endpoint Security for years. The software is so successful for protecting your endpoints. If you use this software with McAfee ePO which is centralized security management software, you can easily configure, use and manage

Pros

McAfee Endpoint Security is one of the most important security software in our company. The software is so good in malware and virus protection. McAfee Endpoint Security not only protects against viruses and/or malwares but also has fabuluous functionality to repair infected files. Also, software has an excellent reporting capabilities.

Cons

The software requires a lot of RAM, because of consumption of McAfee resources is so high. Computers slow down while scanning. Antiphishing capability is little bit poor.

Reasons for Choosing McAfee Endpoint Protection Advanced for SMB

We did some POC on a few products and we chose the McAfee Enpoint Security because of the good overall functionality.

Windows OS Security with less hassle

Running this software daily or sub-daily on each of our Windows machines in the developer bullpen in order to keep things clean. Malware is less common than it used to be, and sometimes is conflated with browser extensions, but McAfee is one of the few security softwares that can tell the difference between the two.

Pros

I love that McAfee allows me to run endpoint protection scans on a regular basis, at times that I can easily reconfigure and with threat allowances that I can customize, all from the menu in the browser tray. No hassle with changing code or system registry editors.

Cons

I dislike that I can't view and publish incident reports easily. Sometimes, a threat detection is boiled down to a notification, and even when "more detail" has been clicked, it's just a time stamp and a threat type. I want to be able to dive into the type of threat being assessed in full detail.

Symatec was purchased by Norton and support for that product was no longer offered specifically.

Virus protection that acts just like a virus!

Having this software installed on your computer is like volunteering to constantly be interrupted. I don't need my anti-virus software to announce to me that its doing it's job every time it scans something. But it announces it anyway! That alone slows down my entire workflow. If I need to download 50 images in a row, I should be able to keep clicking to the next image to pull up the save menu while the previous image is being scanned. Instead, it whites out your whole browser screen to pop up the message "Scanning your download for viruses!" Other programs do that at the bottom of your screen. I can't even go to another tab to read an e-mail or something while it scans, because it whites out EVERY TAB. I also don't need pop-ups advertising other products on my desktop. One of the benefits of having virus protection is you're less likely to get pop-ups. Not so with McAfee! This program also has excessive alerts, and e-mails me at least once a month with headlines that imply they're monthly summaries of the way I've the program over the month, but are actually also just ads for themselves trying to send you to their website.

Pros

I haven't gotten a virus yet, so at least it's doing the bare minimum.

Cons

It whites out my ENTIRE BROWSER SCREEN the whole time it scans a download, to let me know that it's scanning my download. It also has pop-up ads for itself and other related services, and excessive alerts that you can't seem to shut off. It basically feels like you have a virus.

Best for security and safety of endpoints

Since using McAfee endpoint security we've hardly had digital attacks or hacks. There maybe a few back-end detection I may not know about but our IT department constantly maintains a safe work environment for us using McAfee.

Pros

Excellent threat detection capabilities. Regular alerting system and notification. Constant monitoring and protection of our office endpoints from malware and viruses

Cons

Although McAfee has been functional for us, it did take some time to fully implement it on all our network and endpoint. I wish it was faster.
