We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The technical support is really terrific.""In Digital Guardian, they have the cloud correlation servers that give you visibility work like EBR and the correlation server works very well for security analysis.""The feature we call desktop recording is the most valuable aspect of the solution. Not only can we collect data from the user's usage, but we also capture his screenshots when he is trying to steal the data.""It can scale from 100 to 10,000. There's no problem with the scalability.""I like the solution's adaptive inspection and container inspection.""The most valuable feature of Digital Guardian is its reputation. They have scored high on the Gartner Magic Quadrant.""It has been scalable.""It has the added advantage of offering forensic analysis."

Cons
"Digital Guardian is an excellent solution but our experience with the partner has been the most horrible experience we have ever had with any partner.""Technical support could be better.""Some features on Mac and Linux are not complete currently. For example, some device control features haven't been transferred over to the other systems. If they could have their Windows features also available on Mac and Linux, that would be perfect. Some of our customers have a Mac environment for their RD environment. Having the solution fully capable of handling everything in a Mac environment is crucial.""There are a lot of issues with the current version of the Endpoint agent. It's not stable, it's resource-consuming, and there are some performance issues. If they could improve the stability of the agent it would be great.""I would like to see the workflow, to get all the rules and policies set up, be less complicated.""The initial setup is a bit more complex than other solutions.""When considering potential areas for improvement, it may be beneficial for Digital Guardian to optimize its processes and reduce the computational demands on the system, particularly with regard to high CPU usage. Although Digital Guardian offers numerous benefits, it can consume a substantial amount of RAM and CPU power.""The room for improvement with Digital Guardian is that it will be better with the Linux agent because it is the only DLP solution for Linux workstations. It still needs to upgrade the agents to the latest version for the Linux kernel."

"McAfee Total Protection for Data Loss Prevention could improve by having artificial intelligence.""When this solution is used it requires a lot of administration because the users can have difficulties using it and require assistance. The administrators are continuously modifying the policies for the users. Technical support will be used frequently.""The pricing is high for licensing and support and the GUI interface is good but could use updating.""The solution needs an easier integration in heterogeneous and dynamic environments.""The licensing cost for McAfee Total Protection could be cheaper, but apart from that, I don't need anything else. The software has what I need.""It could improve how it deals with solar data.""Our client is not very happy with the lack of support, the skills, and the effectiveness of the tool.""The interface can be improved, it's too cluttered."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Digital Guardian has both, subscription and perpetual licenses, but I think when everything (all technologies) will go to the cloud they will only offer subscriptions."
  • "If I compare Digital Guardian with Symantec, the license cost is lower, but McAfee can be cheaper than Digital Guardian. It depends on how many licenses you plan to buy and how big the project is. The cost is not so high as Symantec, but not as cheap as McAfee. They can easily sell the solution for price."

  • "The cost was around $300,000."
  • "The price of Digital Guardian is on the higher end compared to other vendors."
  • "I rate the solution's pricing an eight out of ten because Digital Guardian is expensive."
