We performed a comparison between McAfee Complete Data Protection and Sophos SafeGuard based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Endpoint Encryption solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The most important feature of McAfee Complete Data Protection to my customers is the ePO or the management console. It's easy to use and it's scalable. You can also generate the reports you want on the console. It's a mature management console. The features that McAfee Complete Data Protection has, for example, anti-spam features and other features can also be found on other solutions, but the most unique feature you can find in the solution is the ePO itself, the management console."
"McAfee Complete Data Protection provides stability and is a good product."
"It is part of the DLP and works well for that use case."
"I have found the USB part most valuable."
"All of the Complete Data products are valuable."
"Complete Data Protection lets us define roles in our data products. It helps us identify something suspicious on the client's device."
"The console of the EDR is totally in the cloud."
"The solution has a good interface."
"I like that Sophos SafeGuard provides excellent technical support."
"The solution has a great VPN."
"It is seamless and easy to install. We haven't encountered any recent issues."
"The advantage of Sophos SafeGuard stems from the fact that it is more secure than other products in the market."
"What I love most about Sophos SafeGuard is its user-friendly interface. My company has another software with a complex user interface versus Sophos SafeGuard, which is extremely easy to use."
"The solution can block a virus attack and prevent it from moving across the system."
"The solution can be easily connected and it is very secure."
"I like the support most of all."
"They could be better in terms of Complete Data Protection."
"Initial setup was complex."
"The UI could be improved a bit."
"Some clients still receive spam and malware in their attachments, so the data protection isn't working correctly. We have configured it and enabled the features in the client's system, but some policies have failed to work once or twice."
"They need to segregate McAfee Complete Data Protection for endpoints and servers."
"As a new technology, it does need to grow."
"Though there may be some ransomware detection modules now in McAfee Complete Data Protection, it's a field that McAfee should focus on, particularly having integration with some EDR or other add-ons. This is so McAfee Complete Data Protection would have more accuracy in detecting new ransomware in the market. What I'd like to see in the next release of the solution is for its pricing to be more cost-effective because some competitors have cheaper pricing, so McAfee Complete Data Protection can't compete. Sometimes, some new vendors offer other solutions rather than McAfee Complete Data Protection, to win customers over, and this is a loss for McAfee."
"The solution needs a next generation or AI firewall that doesn't rely on signatures to detect traits."
"The solution lacks direct connectivity to Azure AD."
"The solution's ability to integrate with other solutions, such as a DLP, should be addressed."
"You have to pay extra for some additional features, like data extraction. It would be nice if everything was available in one bundle."
"SafeGuard's user interface is ugly and doesn't provide reports, so we have to go into the database and get information from there by creating queries."
"What would make Sophos SafeGuard better than competitors is if its management console also includes firewall management. In the future, I want Sophos SafeGuard to be more scalable."
"The lack of need for the patch for an extra password is a shortcoming. It will be a great improvement if the patch requires an extra password so that they can find out how to synchronize your Windows password with the same password for Sophos SafeGuard."
"The dashboards lack sufficient information."
"Sophos should conduct some seminars to teach people how to use it and also to inform the users about what they should do in case of problems."
Sensitive data is constantly at risk of loss, theft, and exposure. Many times, the data simply walks right out the front door on a laptop or USB device. Companies that suffer such a data loss risk serious consequences, including regulatory penalties, public disclosure, brand damage, customer distrust, and financial losses. According to a Ponemon Institute report, 7% of all corporate laptops will be lost or stolen sometime during their useful life. The rapid proliferation of mobile devices with large storage capacities and often internet access is opening up even more channels for data loss or theft, so protecting sensitive, proprietary, and personally identifiable information must be a top priority. McAfee Complete Data Protection Suites address all of these concerns and many more.
