Great data exfiltration and very easy to use
Pros and Cons
  • "Provides good exfiltration, and is an all-in-one product."
  • "Lacks remote capabilities not dependent on the internet."

What is our primary use case?

This solution is our go-to for your basic antivirus scans. Most of the stuff that we have is standalone. It's all pooled from McAfee, we buy the license for whatever tool the customer wants use to use, and we install it on the product. I'm a manager at the company. 

What is most valuable?

This solution is very easy to use and requires little to no training. It has good exfiltration, and is an all-in-one product. 

What needs improvement?

Some of our customers have mentioned the lack of a tool that would allow for remote capabilities without being attached to the internet. They've been looking at opportunities to set up their own networks and they'd like to use McAfee and other cyber tools strictly through that and not rely on the internet to run them.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I haven't had any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The solution is scalable although we don't use it to its full potential. 

What other advice do I have?

This is a tool that's well known and a tool that most people know how to use. It's easily installed and procured. I've never had any issues but we're a company that has a limitation on the amount of different tools we can use. There may be something better out there, but I haven't seen that yet. I rate this product an eight out of 10.
