Primary use case: malware blockage. If you remember WannaCry, this system stopped it dead in its tracks with zero system failures. If you recall WannaCry hit on the weekend. I updated the rules from home on my ePO server and more than 200 machines were on during the weekend. When I checked the logs on Monday morning, at least 50,000 hits were registered in the logs with zero system failures. Its greatest strength is the DXL client which can rapidly disseminate attack information to all clients via the McAfee Agent instead of going through the ePO server.

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.
