McAfee Web Protection Room for Improvement

Jean-Luc Des Groseilliers - PeerSpot reviewer

The True Key version for mobile phones should be improved. The password manager is not as seamless as on the desktop. Once implemented, on the desktop, when you go to the site, it automatically fills and connects you, whereas, on the mobile phone, it doesn't do that quite seamlessly. You need to open the True Key application and then select the password you want to use. It then opens in the browser. There are fewer steps in the desktop version as compared to the mobile version.

McAfee Web Protection can improve the information provided for hybrid installations in the console. Additionally, having cloud protection would be good.

I believe it is functioning satisfactorily. It is always possible to improve, but it is currently working satisfactorily.

When there is a fault and our customers or users have a problem, we must step in. Those configuration and fine-tuning tasks should be completed prior to release. Particularly in the case of a DLP solution. Because DLP is a customized solution, this is more relevant. There is a lot of customization, but even during the learning period, there is a learning curve.

The initial setup could be simplified, there is a learning curve during the implementation.

I'm not sure if the solution itself is cloud-based or not. If it isn't they really need to begin to develop that out a bit.

There aren't any missing features. It does what I need it to do.

Our issue is that the endpoints are lightweight agents, eating too much of the host resources.

I'm not an IT person, and therefore can't speak to if there are any missing features. For me, it works quite well and I have no complaints.

The solution could always use more security features. If it was more secure, it would be an even stronger product.

In McAfee Web Protection there are gaps in the security design, in the overall architecture, the gaps need to be fixed.

McAfee Web Protection doesn't give you a unified tool, which I will install the Web Inspector on my laptop and everything is taken care of. There are other components you need to purchase, without additional features your protection circle is not closed up.

It will start working better if you are integrating it with your endpoint security on McAfee. When using McAfee Web Protection at full scale, you must have what McAfee calls a CASB solution, a client access security broker. If this is in place your entire system security is good, otherwise, there are loopholes for vulnerabilities.
