Girded Web Soldier

I am using it for about 5 years with yearly subscription and It has been so overwhelming that my laptop has not been attacked or affected due to this software. The antivirus is highly secured that it blocks or deletes files in an instant and that is the best thing I have experienced with McAfee Endpoint Security. Due to these reason, I had suggested this antivirus software to many of my friends!

Pros

I am a blogger and I like the way McAfee Endpoint Security helps me to visit secure & safe website while I surf for relevant data for my blog. It helps me even to download files or images which are safe and free from malware. It even checks my laptop for unwanted apps or trojan files which may have creeped while I spend my whole day on the Internet. I love the way it protects my laptop, keeping me confident all day long!

Cons

I do not like the way it blocks out the website completely without saying why that page is harmful or what was the route of trojan files which managed to creep into my laptop.

Reasons for Choosing McAfee Endpoint Protection Essential for SMB

McAfee Endpoint Security is cost-effective and worthy of the price I paid. Kaspersky has highest security at considerably higher price. Bonus, it came as a gift on the purchase of my laptop.

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 Essential for SMB

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

McAfee Endpoint Security

Endpoint Security has saved me from having to send private information twice because our computer is safe and protected. Having a software scan when it thinks there is a problem that makes my job easy. One of our remote employees sent work in and before I open it up it was scanned and a threat was detected and fixed.

Pros

I like the real-time anti-malware scanners that monitor my computer system by intercepts my file and delivering them to the scan engine, which returns a decision about whether the file is malicious. I love Endpoint detection and response and firewall reputation. It was used ten minutes after being installed it detected a threat a notified me. It is worth the money. It works on all the computers in the office.

Cons

I have nothing but praise to give this software because it protected the office computer from malware.

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.

Secure

I uninstalled after so much lagging it was causing my computer to process.

Pros

I like the fact of how it protects my computer from viruses and does a little more. I used it everyday when it came as default on my PCs.

Cons

When it says the thing about the trial has ended I think having a fee for protecting a computer shouldn't even be charged. And also I do like how it protects your computer, but it makes the system works slow even if it works in the background.

Reasons for Choosing McAfee Endpoint Protection Essential for SMB

I don't use it anymore thank you anyway nice service.
