The performance is good and it's very stable

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution—we've got what they call McAfee ePO—is for a centralized system that we use to manage all the other endpoints from the central point. It's for endpoint protection, but there are some other options that you can use, such as Web Control, Firewall, etc. This solution is deployed on-premise. 

What is most valuable?

One of the most valuable features is the performance. It's very stable. 

What needs improvement?

The installation process could be improved. It's a bit difficult, but once you get it right, it's fine. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using McAfee for the past 10 years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?
