McAfee Endpoint Security Review

Viruses and hackers can damage your computers and erase your data. However, with the aid of McAfee Endpoint Security, everything is secure from all sorts of threats. It is a tool that I have a good experience with.

Pros

McAfee Endpoint Security is a great tool that we like using in our firm because it keeps our systems and computers secure from all the emerging viruses and other online threats that can damage our data. This software is easy to use. Any hacker with an intention to damage our systems is always blocked by this amazing software. Moreover, it is an inexpensive tool to use. It blocks all types of threats.

Cons

I like everything about this tool but I would ask the vendor to keep improving it consistently to ensure that it is able to fight and block new threats that are emerging everyday. Otherwise, it is a reliable tool.

I like this product, it came with my windows 10 machine

Pros

The software has protected my computer for over 3 years, and i have had no viruses nor have I been hijacked.... so the software is doing the job it was designed/built to do.

Cons

I have noticed that when scanning my system the computer slows down a bit and i have noticed the RAM resources that is uses gets pretty high... so i have scheduled system scans later in the night time.

Your Best Security Assistant

I have more than 2 years experience with this tool. The PC takes lots of memory while running a malware scan. The customer needs high-performance PC to get good experience.

Pros

The interface is great. The customer support service is very fast and reliable. McAfee uses different technologies and achieve their final target very fast.

Cons

The tool is not very efficient with malware removal option. The tool remove infected files without showing any warning message.

mcafee secruity review

Pros

What I liked most about this software was that it does its job of firewall security. I didn't need to constantly supervise if this software was actually working, since it gave regular updates about the security of my computer.

Cons

What I liked least about this software was the downloading/installing process. This process took longer than normal, because the software required specifics as to where to install each folder/sub-program of the software.

McAfee Deadend Security

One of the first things that I ask people when they contact me about their poor system performance is "Are you running McAffee?" If so, I run for the Windows Control Panel and begin the painful process of removing this program that supposedly protects your system. I'm not sure what's worse, an actual virus or having McAfee installed.

Pros

In my years as an I.T. Consultant, I've never found a use for this product. It's slow, clunky, a resouce hog and unstalling this product is like removing a virus !!!

Cons

HUGE PC footprint
Umpteen "Services" running in the background that slow your systems to a crawl
Constantly nagging (pop ups) about renewing or upgrading

A secure protection solution that provides great piece-of-mind.

Overall, McAfee is a useful security tool that I would encourage businesses to use.

Pros

The solution is extremely well hosted and keeps my files and documents secure from threats.

Cons

There are similar tools on the market that offer the same service for a fraction of the price, sometimes even free.

As all antivirus collapse your PC

Pros

When I need to clean my PC to prevent viruses, I was able to find and remove several.

Cons

It is very annoying to have him running. It takes a lot of time when it performs the scan and uses a lot of memory resources. It is difficult for me to work with the program started. Usually happens with all antivirus software but in this is very notorious

Security Guaranteed

Overall it works great for me, I've never had a virus, detection is very efficient and timely, I've never had reason to switch, so I would definitely recommend.

Pros

Top of the line security for my computer. I didn't think that software that came with my computer would work so well, but this for sure is one impressive software. I'm always impressed by how fast threat is detected. Before you even click on a link you are made aware about the danger of entering, which I found was an amazing feature.

Cons

Sometimes the notifications that remind you to clean your pc or about new features you can implement can be a bit annoying and overwhelming, but I've gotten used to it.

McAfee Endpoint slows down my computer

Pros

- Managing my subscription through the desktop program is easy.
- Virus definitions update regularly
- Outlook add-on provides additional security for incoming and outgoing mail

Cons

- When I run a system scan, my computer becomes completely unusable. I reached out to McAfee support as something seems wrong with this, and they did not provide any useful explanation or resolution to help speed up the scanning process or reduce the amount of system resource required during scanning.

Price of peace of mind

Pros

When it comes to the sensitive information contained on my computer, there is no such thing as too safe. I originally purchased this program because I needed to get rid of spam- ware but have realized you can’t put a price on being too safe.

Cons

Sometimes I wish the scans would be a bit faster, I get impatient waiting.

A Great Security Tool For Businesses.

McAfee Endpoint Security has made it possible for us to maintain system security in our firm, limiting/eliminating the overall security threats. The support of McAfee Endpoint Security always offer us the required assistance, which makes us feel proud of the services.

Pros

McAfee Endpoint Security understands the risks that firms posses when any unauthorized person gain access to their systems. More so in the banking sector, McAfee Endpoint Security has been of great assistance, where no single intruder with a malicious intent can gain access to the system. The product is very easy to use, and its acquisition is also simplified. I like the fact that McAfee Endpoint Security is an inexpensive product, and this makes it affordable to all individuals and firms.

Cons

However, I would recommend the vendor to bring about continuous improvement, may be monthly, to curb the ever emerging security threats. Again, in terms of website/Internet protection, McAfee Endpoint Security needs some enhancements or updates to ensure that the user is safe from the internet threats.
