We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It also provides us with the ability to lock down a wide variety of USB devices, which is pretty important because we don't want certain data accessed. It does a really good job when it comes to the versatility of the exit points it supports, making sure that important data does not leave our organization.""The software is easy to use and the dashboard is intuitive.""The core of its value lies in obtaining logs remotely and exercising control over what employees can or cannot use.""The most valuable features are Device Control, Content-Aware Protection, Enforced Encryption, and eDiscovery.""The product is forward-looking, in my opinion, which is a requirement nowadays.""The search for keywords is very important in our security operations because one of the key use cases we had was for the ability to search keyword-based on an internal database of keywords that have been submitted by other project managers within the company that's around intellectual property. The ability to search on keywords was part of that.""The versatility regarding the exit point Endpoint Protector supports in making sure that important data doesn't leave our organization is vital for us. In the industry that we're in, data breaches are a significant concern. While our staff is contractually required to maintain confidentiality and they're all very aware that they shouldn't try and transfer company data of different classifications elsewhere to non-company devices, there's a risk.""The most valuable features are the ability to prevent access to external devices, and also site blocking."

"The ability to block all USBs from the McAfee portal has been great.""McAfee Total Protection for Data Loss Prevention is a very stable product.""It can scale.""Offers some good protection features.""You can manage your compliance in line with legislation such as GDPR and POPIA.""The solution is very user-friendly and valuable.""Enables customization of file types and for different scenarios.""What I like about McAfee Total Protection is that it's working. I also like that it doesn't require any specific knowledge to set up."

More McAfee Total Protection for Data Loss Prevention Pros →

"The reports and analysis could be improved. There could be a little more data, and the logs could be a little more granular, but it's nothing major. It does what it needs to do, and it's fine.""We are currently facing an issue where it is blocking the Winman software, which is something that we don't want to happen because we use it in our accounts department to pay taxes.""The only aspect that prevents it from being a perfect solution is the occasional slower response time.""CoSoSys Endpoint Protector's network-level DLP and integration with mail servers need improvement.""This product provides zero-day protection for macOS, although I'm currently dealing with an issue on the most recent rollout of the Endpoint client that doesn't seem to be fully functioning.""I have faced issues which shouldn't be related to this product. This product is purely a DLP, so it should only protect my data. I don't know what is happening with their agent or what is happening with the software, but it messes up my endpoint. For example, people are facing bandwidth issues. Before I deployed this on an endpoint, people were getting internet speeds of 40 or 50 Mbps. After deploying it, that would come down to 10 Mbps. And if I uninstalled the agent, it would go back to 50 Mbps.""One of the areas where there is room for improvement is support. It takes time for them to respond. They need to respond on time. Instead of sending an email, I think it would be very helpful to say, 'Let's set up a WebEx to see what's really going on,' instead of the back and forth of email.""Because it is only an Endpoint Protector at this point in time, it does not have a network DLP component. There's only an endpoint DLP component. In the future, it would be good if a network DLP component could be embedded and extended to have network DLP capabilities."

More CoSoSys Endpoint Protector Cons →

"The product uses a lot of resources and because of this it is not always a good solution for every situation.""The initial setup is very complex.""The solution needs to be a one-stop protection shop. And yet, the DLP isn't strong. Anyone can break it quite easily.""The UI needs to be simplified.""It could improve how it deals with solar data.""Integration with other vendors could be improved. For example, with Chrome or Firefox.""The solution needs an easier integration in heterogeneous and dynamic environments.""McAfee Total Protection for Data Loss Prevention needs to improve the resources it uses for CPU and RAM."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "This is a budget-friendly solution that covers all the aspects of host-level DLP."
  • "The price of Endpoint Protector by CoSoSys is more or less the same as other competing solutions."
  • "It has a fair price. They just changed recently from perpetual licensing. When I bought it, I bought it on perpetual license, then they changed the whole company policy to go to subscription. It was a bit of a shock to us because we haven't upgraded it that many times. However, after speaking to CoSoSys directly, they gave us a very good renewal price."
  • "I don't have any issue with the licensing and pricing. I would love for it to be cheaper, but at the same time I'm getting a lot from it."
  • "[The pricing] is reasonable compared to what's out there."
  • "Pricing is quite reasonable. For smaller organizations, it lets them get into the product domain, whereas a lot of vendors won't even talk to them. CoSoSys is just about at that sweet spot of being serious enough that you have to budget for it, but at the same time, affordable enough that the value is well worth it."
  • "The minimum number of licenses they sell is 50 or 150 users."
  • "For what it's doing, the cost is somewhat high for us, but it's the cost of doing business with the clients that we have."
