Pros
"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 graphical interface of the solution is its most valuable aspect.""McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator has a built-in advanced pattern, which is very useful because it can detect any pattern.""The security is a key feature and the console is very user friendly.""The general endpoint protection is valuable, and it is easy to manage.""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.""Technical support is very helpful.""The valuable feature of the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is the management of the policies."

"I have found all the security automation platform features of Splunk Phantom to be good. The Automation playbook development is highly useful.""The customization continues to be excellent.""The most valuable features of Splunk Phantom are the easy integration with other solutions, including other Splunk solutions. The most important playbooks we need on a market come already on the Frontend. However, nowadays, Splunk changed its name, it's not Frontend anymore, it's Splunk Store. This is a very strong point.""I'm just a beginner on the solution and it's pretty easy for me to use.""So far, the interface is very easy to use.""I like the integration capabilities of Phantom. It has a lot of integrations with other products. Its searching methodologies are also good. It is also easy to understand and easy to create playbooks.""The automation part of the product is great.""The most valuable feature of Splunk Phantom that stands out is it has a great SOAR. The automation and orchestration module is highly mature. A lot of use cases are on user entity and behavioral analytics (UEBA), which is artificial intelligence and machine learning-based (AIML)."

Cons
"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.""The solution sometimes has some false positives on IP addresses, from the web control aspect of the product. This needs to be improved.""Lacks a single plug-in for multiple uses.""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.""Sometimes agents hang. We have to reinstall the agents.""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.""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.""I would like to see McAfee reduce the amount of manual work required."

"The scalability could be better.""It would be ideal if we could automate processes even more.""Splunk Phantom has room to improve its offering for small-sized customers. The price is not fair for smaller-sized customers.""We've had trouble implementing the solution with Microsoft products. There seems to be an integration gap.""Splunk Phantom can improve IoT/OT security-related case studies or your use cases. Their integration with identity and access management (IAM) solutions is a bit shaky. They don't have good integration with a lot of IAM solutions. They do have good capability in terms of user access management internally, but even with privileged user access, they have a good module. However, if they have to integrate with solutions, such as CyberArk or IBM IAM solutions they are lacking, the visibility of user access is not that much.""In the beginning, we couldn't find any specific documents for every function. It wasn't easy to navigate to what we needed.""I haven't used it fully, but based on my usage, I could not find simulation tools and features. It currently lacks simulation features, which are important for me for creating a playbook. It is also very expensive for my region.""The Splunk Phantom platform was not designed specifically for case management which is why this area needs improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It is attractively priced. It is a fraction of what we're going to pay for CrowdStrike or SentinelOne, but it only has a fraction of the capabilities as well."
  • "There is a license required to use this solution. If we use the additional components, such as DLP encryption, there is an additional cost. However, it is similar to a separate product altogether. If you want to use that or not, it is optional, but when you use it, it will cost you additional pricing."
  • "McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator is not an expensive solution."

  • "I don't know the exact price, but for my region, it is very expensive."
  • "The price of Splunk Phantom is reasonable."
  • "Splunk Phantom follows very flat pricing and most of the time it's very high when compared to the other competitors. They can improve their pricing. The licensing model is a subscription and is consumption-based."
  • "The price of Splunk Phantom is based on the number of people using it. Once you increase the users, the prices go goes up. The customer receives a license for the user that is going to operate it in their environment."

    Overview
    McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (McAfee ePO) is the most advanced, extensible, and scalable centralized security management software in the industry. Unifying security management through an open platform, McAfee ePO makes risk and compliance management simpler and more successful for organizations of all sizes.

    Phantom enables teams to work smarter by executing automated actions across their security infrastructure in seconds, versus hours or more if performed manually. Teams can codify workflows into Phantom’s automated playbooks using the visual editor (no coding required) or the integrated Python development environment. By offloading these repetitive tasks, teams can focus their attention on making the most mission-critical decisions.
    Orchestration
    Phantom is the connective tissue that lets existing security tools work better together. By connecting and coordinating complex workflows across the SOC’s team and tools, Phantom ensures that each part of the SOC’s layered defense is actively participating in a unified defense strategy. Powerful abstraction allows teams to focus on what they need to accomplish, while the platform translates that into tool-specific actions.
    Incident Response
    Phantom helps security teams investigate and respond to threats faster. Using Phantom’s automated detection, investigation, and response capabilities, teams can execute response actions at machine speed, reduce malware dwell time and lower their overall mean time to resolve (MTTR). And now with Phantom on Splunk Mobile, analysts can use their mobile device to respond to security incidents while on-the-go. Phantom’s event and case management functionality can further streamline security operations. Case-related data and activity are easily accessible from one central repository. It’s easy to chat with other team members about an event or case, and assign events and tasks to the appropriate team member.
