McAfee Endpoint Protection Essential for SMB Software


McAfee Endpoint Protection Essential is a multi-featured security suite, designed for small and midsize businesses (SMBs).

The solution offers businesses with a wide array of functionality. A firewall helps keep hackers out of company networks, while anti-malware protection, device control and Web security all defend against multiple security threats.

McAfee Endpoint Protection Essential also features an access protection tool that, in the event of a cyber attack, restricts access to folders designated as “confidential.”

It comes with a central control panel, available on-premise or in the cloud, which enables a single administrator to manage and monitor the company network, making sure company security is up-to-date.

McAfee, a subsidiary of Intel, has clients ranging from government agencies to at-home users. Support is available via phone.

Safety guaranteed

Pros

I have used it for about 4 months now based on a friends suggestion and I am very happy with it. No virus has made it past the security. It works in the background so no annoying pop ups for updates and such. I will go nowhere else for my security needs.

Cons

The interface looks a little dated, it isn't very attractive but it gets the job done.

Reliable tool for security - McAfee Endpoint Security.

Applied security polices on computers, improved the data protection and secured the devices from viruses.

Pros

This is a light weight application. Its greatly helpful to secure the data in both mode - online and offline. No more worry about latest virus(es) as service provide gives time to time upgrade and patches. Easy to scan the device and for review purposes this application provides the details of scanned object.
Installation of application is fast and easy.

Cons

Seldom this uses more resources of my computer and this results into slowness.

Works well but have conflict with some programs

Pros

Updates and scans in the background. I like that it does file scanning before downloading files to my PC

Cons

I've been having conflict issues running this software with a Cisco VPN. When the VPN is active, the local internet connection drops which should not be happening. May have to use a different tool if this can't be resolved even if it's otherwise a good product

Better than the competition

I have tried different anti-virus solutions in the last years, in different companies, and McAfee is one of the best.

Pros

Silent operation, it only notifies you when there really is a problem.
Good detection of new viruses and malware.
Easy to use interface.
Good support on various operating systems.

Cons

As any anti-virus software, it slows down the system, especially during the periodical full scan.

Excellent security simplified to manage the system

In short, the experience was excellent even if some small problem with the management of false positives but nothing so critical, as opposed to the blocking of some new threats has saved more times the workstation that with his stop would have had the pedite of efficiency not unimportant.

Pros


Excellent software, the thing that amazed me most was the simplicity of workstation and threat management, a few steps to perform the best action for cases where you need a choice.

Cons

One of the most recursive problems I had were false positives with some dated software developed ad hoc, which, however, it is possible to compensate through the exclusion

Not Dependable

Pros

I appreciated the multiple tools available in protecting and cleaning up my computer.

Cons

McAfee requires too much of the computer to run and bogs down applications. The worst security issues I've had, McAfee was unable to detect and remove the threat.

Performance significantly improved than previous version. Not slow anymore

McAfee is installed on each one of Company owned Mac's and Windows laptops to ensure that they are compliant with the policies for threat prevention and ensure that Firewall is always turned on. It definitely helps with Malware detection and prevention and the agent runs quietly in background with affecting performance of machine. Very satisfied with version 5 onwards.

Pros

- Auto Detection of new pluggable hardware like USB drives and memory cards and scans automatically
- McAfee agent monitor runs in the background and collects and send props automatically.
- Newer policies can be easily pushed by IT staff and enforced as well
- The console for Mac is now super fast and very helpful for threat prevention.

Cons

- Agent monitor/Console GUI can be updated. looks like little old school
- Eventlogs can be made more user readable

Antivirus to safeguard your PC!

Overall it's a good software to protect against malicious threats, in a number of ways possible.

Pros

1. It's good to protect against threat against threats like worms, Trojan, viruses.
2. It will check downloads from social media accounts to look and solve for malicious website links well.
3. Also it will also showcase the IP Address connected to the possible threats.

Cons

1. I think it is good, but not the best when compared to its competitors.
2. McAfee should should enhance by ensuring security through webcam, so that it's not being used without permission.
3. Also lessen the price a little if you can. A lot of us still continue to enjoy the free version.
