Cons

Using this solution can be a big challenge from the performance perspective if you need a productive system that locally runs multiple VMs.""I found that the interface is a little bit confusing. It's over-stuffed. If a new IT person comes in, it is difficult to understand how the McAfee console works.""Lacks cloud security integrated with the antivirus."
