Good for protection but renewal is a process.

Pros

It was easy to purchase and access right from my home office. I use it for my personal PC and my phones.

Cons

The renewal process is automatic and they charge you the highest price. Every year I have had to call to negotiate the lower rate.

Pros

McAfee endpoint provides features the users have come to know and trust. With regular updates, you should be confident you're protected!

Cons

McAfee protection can be overwhelming with the updates. McAfee is a trusted name, which means it doesn't have to try as hard, and that can sometimes leave a little to be desired.

McAfee's virus library updates regularly as new threats are released, which offers peace of mind compared to programs that update less frequently.

The interface is confusing and deploying on licensed computers isn't as easy as it is on other programs. When contacting McAfee support, they were very unhelpful and were not able to resolve the issues I was having.

Value for Money

Pros

MacAfee Endpoint, for the most part, follows through on their claims, of detection, I did not, easy install easy to use.

Cons

1.
Microsoft defender is free with Windows 10, of course, and picked up every virus/spyware that McAfee did minus one email trojan, which I simply did not and would not have opened, McAfee Endpoint protection 31.34-92.17 depending on the version.
2.
The McAfee software slowed every facet of my computer, internet speed, boot time, launching programs.
3. the biggest con was trying to uninstall the software after deciding not to keep it. Standard windows uninstall"program" was unable to remove all traces still processing in the task manager., I then reinstalled Endpoint McAfee and used the "McAfee specific" uninstall App.

Traces remained process in the task manager.
I ultimately used a third party program and dove into the registry to completely remove.

- It's inexpensive for small businesses to deploy across their network.
- Includes protection options for mobile devices as well as computers and fileservers.

We renewed McAfee on a few new computers where it was installed as a trial (60-90 days). McAfee did a decent job in protecting our systems and it was easy to renew the subscriptions when the time came.

Cons

It consumed a lot of resources, even when it wasn't performing a system scan. Users ended up disabling McAfee to use their computers which defeated the purpose of having it.

McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection is a great program which scans your computer for bad viruses, trojans, tracking cookies, etc. It has protected me from a lot of malware in the past.

The program can be a little pricey when you compare it to other freeware such as Malware Bytes. The subscription basis is inconvenient too.

For personal use, my laptop came with the McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection for one year and it works like a charm, keeping my data protected from threats out there. In the company, McAfee has been used to protect the whole enterprise from threats, any possible incoming threats are immediately detected giving time for I.T and Infosec to take the necessary action to prevent possible infiltration and damages.

Cons

I cannot say that there is anything to complain about McAfee, in the years that I have used it, it has never failed me.

Good - except situations had to install or upgrade packages of open source tools

Pros

Helps secure the system that is often compromised inspite our best intentions. McAfee is reliable and does its job in the background once on and set up.

Cons

Restricts full access and installation of online open source tools and resources, creating hurdles in moving things fast in fast paced development projects, although balance between security and vulnerability is needed.

Overall, it had helped us in providing splendid security to our machines.

Pros

McAfee is the name of trust and high-end security. It's very easy to set up and doesn't require any IT Skills to configure. Lots of our staff can easily configure it themselves. It gives instant reports of the threats and scanned files. The feature i like the most is its updates, McAfee is always keeping the software up to date, which helps in blocking all the new malware.

Cons

Its strict security sometimes blocks our daily use apps, and we have to manually allow them to run. Which is quite tricky for users and increase our IThelpdesk tickets.

It saves me from the online transaction threats.

Pros

I usually perform many online transactions daily . i recently purchased McAfee endpoint security. This software in the the best package I think. It provides the most secure firewall protection. When ever I perform any online transaction it always gets activated because it has the best machine learning algorithms. It always ask me to apply my passwords and never save any of them.

Cons

Security features are the best. But the updates should be more frequent, for more tight security.

My experience with McAfee Endpoint Security was not friendly. This product is not reliable, and cannot even be compared to other security tools. I cannot recommend its use.

Pros

McAfee Endpoint Security is the simplest software to use. That is, even a person who have ever been in a computer class can comfortably use this product. Again, the process of acquiring and implementing McAfee Endpoint Security is also very simple. Lastly, McAfee Endpoint Security is a light application, which does not consume more RAM of a computer system.

Cons

However, McAfee Endpoint Security is not and has never been a reliable security software. Personally, I see the vendor as a big joke, who ignore the dynamics of computer fraud. McAfee Endpoint Security hardly identifies a computer fraud or malware. It will issue a fake comfort, which will make you believe that you are safe, which is not the case. Furthermore, it does not block malicious sites and application, which may keep your computer at a risk of attack.

Excellent Experian was with customer service. Software is easy and performs well when called upon.

Pros

Very well layed out interface. Runs quietly in the background. Some security software is constantly popping up and disrupting but I have found McAfee to be the opposite in comparison.

I had a problem with the software not appearing when booing up my computer but this was politely and expertly solved by a member of their customer service team.

Cons

I did have a problem with the software not booting when starting the computer. However this was quickly resolved.
