Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The console allows us to manage not only endpoint protection, but DLP, and also integration with MVISION Cloud.""Technical support is very helpful.""It is part of the DLP and works well for that use case.""McAfee Complete Data Protection provides stability and is a good product.""With respect to data loss prevention, I think it is helpful to the customer.""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.""Complete Data Protection lets us define roles in our data products. It helps us identify something suspicious on the client's device.""I have found the USB part most valuable."

More Sophos SafeGuard Pros →

"They could be better in terms of Complete Data Protection.""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.""There are some features that do not work with Mac.""We are looking for more granular control over the policies.""The disk encryption can be improved.""There are compatibility issues with the Chrome browser.""As a new technology, it does need to grow.""The price is a little high and could be better."

More McAfee Complete Data Protection Cons →

"There are times that this solution takes up too much memory that needs to be resolved. If it is not fixed it will definitely create issues in the future.""It would be ideal if the solution had different features within one agent.""You have to pay extra for some additional features, like data extraction. It would be nice if everything was available in one bundle.""The Office 360 integration could be improved.""It's a good product, but some are not happy with the boot BCN, and the point-to-point VPN requires the best protection.""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.""The solution's ability to integrate with other solutions, such as a DLP, should be addressed.""The integration could be a little better."

    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.
