"It's great that the solution is integrated with FortiAnalyzer."
"The reputation of the brand is very good."
"The initial setup is straightforward."
"Technical support is very helpful."
"The valuable feature of the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is the management of the policies."
"The feature that I have found most valuable is its general purpose of protecting our endpoints from infections, malicious files, and all those kinds of things. The fact that there are organized policies and policy inheritance. The general management."
"The general endpoint protection is valuable, and it is easy to manage."
"The most valuable features of McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator are the easy-to-use console, and lots of reports, such as customized reports and inventory reports. Additionally, overall the centralized management is very good where you can see the compliance levels and inventory."
"The most valuable feature of the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is agent communication."
"McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator has a built-in advanced pattern, which is very useful because it can detect any pattern."
"The policy auditing, policy management, and device auditing are all valuable features. Our customers appreciated the ability to get alerts to system-wide events from a single view."
"I have found that Fortinet FortiSOAR needs a lot of improvement. The Orchestration needs to be improved."
"The solution doesn't connect well with the network devices."
"Technical support could be improved."
"Sometimes agents hang. We have to reinstall the agents."
"The impact of the agent on the endpoint's performance - the resources it takes. Additionally, the difficulties we experience with inheriting and breaking inheritance on the organization's structure breakdown for policy inheritance and then for rules inheritance. We are actually struggling with this."
"I would like to see McAfee reduce the amount of manual work required."
"There should be more insights and completeness into the cyber kill chain, similar to CrowdStrike and SentinelOne. It just seems a little outdated in being 100% signature-based without all of the insights and protections that come with CrowdStrike and SentinelOne. Overall, they've got some catching up to do if they plan to compete in the comprehensive EDR space."
"McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator could improve by supporting container microservices, such as Docker and Kubernetes."
"As for improvements, I think that putting everything on a cloud and one console would be a great idea and would be useful for customers."
"The solution is difficult to tune to avoid false positives."
"McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator support has been helpful. However, sometimes when I raise the case they take a while to answer. For example, the last time I used them it took them two weeks to reply back by email. No one has contacted me back since. They should improve their service."
