No performance issues but haven't really noticed a difference in security

What is our primary use case?

We started using MOVE Antivirus because our security staff required it. And I personally haven't seen the difference because I haven't had any issues so far that McAfee addresses. MOVE Antivirus is to reduce and avoid risks.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using MOVE AntiVirus for around a month. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

In the time that I've been using it, it hasn't crashed. It's rock-solid. So, I haven't noticed any performance issues, like using too much CPU or memory.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It has been expanded to our entire organization. So, it's more than 100 people.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It has been expanded to our entire organization. So, it's more than 100 people.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I didn't use any antivirus because my operating system was secure already. I haven't faced any issues so far, so I didn't use it before.

How was the initial setup?

Setting up MOVE Antivirus is straightforward. It only takes a couple of minutes. We have a couple of technical specialists who handle all of this.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

I'm not sure about the pricing because it's something that our security staff installed. It should be licensed like any commercial solution purchased by a company.

What other advice do I have?

I rate MOVE Antivirus seven out of 10. I haven't had any issues, so I can recommend this.

Makes data accessible, but needs better security

What is our primary use case?

We are using the latest version. I use it on my laptop and for my mobile phone for the protection of personal information.

What is most valuable?

When my phone was stolen the solution enabled me to access my data so that I could take a screenshot of the person using my phone and have it sent to my email. This is a great feature.

What needs improvement?

The security feature should be more secure. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using McAfee MOVE AntiVirus for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

While I considered the solution to be stable, the theft of information from my phone demonstrates that this is an area which could stand improvement.

Excellent for endpoint security, providing great protection
Pros and Cons
  • "The solution works well for endpoint security."
  • "Lacks cloud security integrated with the antivirus."

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is to protect all the computers in the company; the websites, files and emails our employees use. I'm responsible for IT and we are customers of McAfee. 

What is most valuable?

In general, the solution provides good protection, it works well for endpoint security. 

What needs improvement?

We're currently looking to switch to a solution that offers cloud security because we want that integrated with the antivirus. We're looking for something that's more sophisticated and integrated.

For how long have I used the solution?

I've been using this solution for over six years. 

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We haven't had any issues with stability. 

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have 10 employees in the company and no problems with scaling. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is easy, you just download the software program and install. It can be done very quickly. 

What other advice do I have?

This is a great tool but now that people are working from home we're looking for something better because what we have now just protects the endpoint and we'd like to have better email and cloud security. 

The solution no longer meets our needs but it's a very good product and I rate it a nine out of 10.

It is stable and easy to set up
Pros and Cons
  • "It can be set up easily and then connected with the server to get the latest updates."

We usually use this solution for protecting the endpoints. It is deployed centrally on all corporate workstations and laptops in my organization.

I would rate McAfee MOVE AntiVirus an eight out of ten. Its performance needs to be improved.

It helps us deal with hacking and other threats in our environment

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use MOVE AntiVirus for data security and preventing hacking.
