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.

Supported Operating System(s):
Windows 7 , Windows Vista , Windows XP , Mac OS , Web browser (OS agnostic) , Windows 2000 , Windows 8

    I need to store my data to the Cloud on a regular basis for security purposes and it looks like this might do the trick, in a very secure manner

    Pros

    As a software developer, I need to know my prokects are protected at all times, this one has a good name plus a 30 day tiral period which I am using now

    Cons

    I am new at using this software and am sure the full package will offer more detail than the free 30 day trial which I am still finding my way around

    Mcafee ENS has been a complete game changer in the world endpoint security. They have made the product so lucid for customers to use in front end and still have one of the best securities in background

    Pros

    Easy-to-Use User Interface: which simplifies the complex technology behind endpoint protection and helps enterprises protect their networks easily without any fuss.

    Cons

    The fact that it’s basically a bare-bones solution using which enterprises can offer only minimal protection. Certainly not suitable for tackling the zero-day malware.

    Every single PC in our organization with McAffee Endpoint Security installed (which was done by policy, so there was no way around it) became very sluggish, unresponsive and generally very frustrating to use. This is a very resource intensive software. And the worst part was how ineffective it was, letting all kinds of malware and spyware come right through, while blocking or alerting against legitimate applications. +

    Pros

    I honestly cannot think of anything positive about this software.

    Cons

    It didn't stopped threats to our systems and it slowed down computers immensely.

    Overall use is pretty simple since it's all automatically done. The dashboard has proven to be useful.

    Pros

    Automatic updates and responses to risk is pretty helpful. The reports provided are great as well.

    Cons

    I haven't come across anything too negative that's worth mentioning.

    Pros

    One of the best ways to prevent your pc or laptop getting slowed down due to Temp or viruses or malware is to install this app. It comes with a range of feature that frees your ram and cleans your registry. ideally recommended to do a full scan once a month if you wish your laptop or desktop to last longer.

    Cons

    Like every security software has its prose and cons mcafee has it too. it is heavy like other apps and you feel it.

    Pros

    If i HAD to pick something to like, I guess it would be that mcafee is easy to use.

    Cons

    McAfee slows your computer down worse than a virus. On top of that it's near impossible to remove from your computer (outside of business operations). It basically embeds itself into your computer, and comes installed by default on many machines now a days. I wouldn't recommend McAfee to anyone, I personally would rather not use any anti-virus, get a virus, and have to reformat.

    McAfee endpoint secueity is being used for detecting malwares and unwanted programs within the enterprise network

    Pros

    McAfee endpoint security comes with a very simple GUI which is easy to use. Product is able to identify most of the threats and it is easy to integate the with other McAfee products like McAfee ESM

    Cons

    McAfee is still using MD5 hashing to detect malwares using signatures and does not support SHA-1 hashes.

    Has regular updates on new security patches against viruses and keeps system protected. Very easy to use and quick scan is helpful.

    Cons

    Might slow the booting time of your system and also runs processes in background for various scans so that is somewhat that could be optimized further.

    Pros

    Similar to other AV vendors, they do some things great, but many, many other things that need a lot of work. McAfee cannot compare to industry leading AV vendor solutions although the free version is great for home use if you want the placebo of being protected.

    Cons

    Just about everything needs work, and the MaCafee product was great when it first came out, there were not any others, but now they are selling against the rest of the market, and ceding marketshare every year

    Both myself and many people I know and have helped with their devices and PC's have had ample difficulty with this software. The persistence of the software to deliver pop ups and various information that one usually does not want to see is absolutely maddening. Even the process of eliminating the software from ones device is a pain in the neck.

    Pros

    - I appreciate that it helps protects ones devices from viruses and scans internet links for safe browsing.
    - VERY easy to download, but comes with a catch...

    Cons

    - Downloads with various other software, when downloading one thing, it sometimes hitches a ride onto ones computer without their knowledge (good business plan I suppose, very annoying though).
    - The software constantly doles out reminders and pop ups on startup, during the daily use of a device and sometimes obstructs ones daily routine on a device.
    - The software is an absolute pain to purge from a device, delivering more pop ups along the way, and sometimes not completely uninstalling.
    - The functionalities can be confusing and arbitrary, there may be too much for people who will never conceivably use all of the functions.
    - The software generally infuriates me whenever I come into contact with it, and not in an irrational way.
