The licensing costs could be lowered a little.

It is not very expensive. It costs 100 Canadian Dollars per year per license. I buy one-year or two-year protection. The license covers my PC, laptops, and telephone. The cost is per user but for multiple devices. It has just the standard licensing fees. There are some options for extended protection. For example, if I wanted to have a VPN, there will be an extra cost. So, there are upgradable features, but I'm very happy with what it is giving me with the basic plan. It gives me the basic privacy protection that I need.

The solution isn't expensive. It's very reasonably priced. I pay a licensing fee in order to use the product.

I believe the license costs something like $150 Canadian per year. It also covers my laptop and my phone. I believe I can cover up to five devices.

When we started to buy the appliance the starting point was a little expensive. It depends on how people see it. In my case, they give a nice price. We are a government agency and they have a contract with us here in Virginia, they gave a nice discount and everything. We bought two appliances that have enough power for managing almost 30,000 users. We are using less than 1% of capacity. And this was a great feature for us because we never come to capacity, but we know that we have enough power to move anything that we want here. I would rate McAfee Web Protection a nine out of ten.

I highly recommend McAfee Web Protection. In my opinion, it is a comprehensive web protection platform with a great firewall. I find that it is a lot less bulky than competing solutions on the market. With McAfee, I know that I am well protected from viruses, spyware, and malware. If I’m on a site with unsafe files, a message will pop up warning me about the possible dangers of the site. It is a powerful and reliable solution. I haven’t experienced any stability issues or bugs while using it - it doesn't crash or freeze while running. Once a month, McAfee sends out an email with a summary of the month’s activities. It also sends out an alert if it detects any anomalies on the device it is installed on. When it comes to cost, McAfee is definitely reasonably priced. The license I have provides me with protection for up to five devices. Below is a list of features and benefits that McAfee provides its users with: Virus, malware, and firewall protection: McAfee is ideal for web protection. It detects malware and viruses and protects against spyware. It also has a very useful and efficient firewall. Identity theft prevention: One of the tools McAfee offers is the True Key password manager, which has a feature that monitors for identity theft. McAfee's identity protection can also detect and report unused email addresses. Reporting: McAfee sends monthly reports with information on activities and the status of the product’s configuration. In addition to the monthly reports, it alerts users when they need to take immediate action to resolve a security threat. Lightweight: McAfee does not utilize a large amount of system resources when running. Scalable: McAfee is designed to scale to support multiple devices under a single license. Easy setup and deployment: The initial setup of McAfee is very straightforward and fast. The solution begins to install automatically as soon as the license key is entered into the website. A typical user will be able to install it without outside assistance from technical experts. It is also very easy to transfer McAfee licenses between devices. Customer support: McAfee’s technical support is always available to assist when necessary. McAfee is a complete, reliable, and mature product. However, there are a few improvements I would like to see in the next release, such as: Better details and insights on why McAfee deemed a site unsafe: For example, are there any components on the site that are problematic, or has the site been blacklisted in the past? Improved spam protection: Occasionally I do receive spam messages. Some users might find it necessary to use a spam filter along with McAfee Web Protection. Overall, I would rate McAfee a nine out of ten. It does what I expect it to do and I know that my various devices are well protected with it running in the background.

We use the on-prem deployment model. Our primary use case is to permit the user to go to the internet with a sufficient level of a category blocking and anti-malware control.

We are using version 8. It is a Hybrid deployment. McAfee uses its own cloud. We monitor everything that is going outside of the United States, and that's why we can see any communication between our users who are outside of Virginia or the United States. We use it to see the communication between our users and outside the United States. We have almost 700 users. We have different departments and all the users. As well, we include servers for this; that we can block any server trying to talk outside to any site.
