McAfee is a security-based company. All of their products are related to the security of networking. We have approximately 15 to 20 customers working with McAfee Endpoint Security.

I use certain features of the solution, although I am not using the latest version, even though my colleagues do so a lot. They also use MVISION, although I do not. We make use of Endpoint host level data loss prevention.

We are using the latest version at the moment because I'm managed by the MVISION tenants. In the past, many people had issues with the utilization of detections and resources. ENS is actually very good for detection. When properly configured, especially when the prevention feature is activated, it integrates very well with the ATP, in respect of the endpoint. ATP offers very good protection and is a rich solution which helps to remove ransomware. I've been using the product for a while now and been able to secure a lot of environmental ransomware attacks, as well as some others, by integrating the ATP with the ENS.

We are using ePO Center Server to communicate with all the endpoints that are in the network. While I cannot be certain, I believe the relevant version is McAfee 8 or 9. We make use of McAfee Agent version number 5.6.4.151. We utilize McAfee Data Exchange Layer. The McAfee Endpoint Security version to which we refer is 10.7. We use the solution for antivirus purposes.

Overall, we handle the implementation of the solution, taking into account the policy required to secure the network. We primarily use McAfee Endpoint Security for data loss and endpoint protection.

We currently have around 50 servers. We aren't really a big company but we have 50 servers which we manage. We use McAfee for the web filtering portion of it. For example, if a user is doing a search on Google, there's a risk-rating web content filter built into McAfee. This alerts us if there are any threats present. We have licensed McAfee ENS on a per-server basis. As of now, from memory, I think we have 56 endpoints running McAfee — 56 servers in total.

I work for a company that is a McAfee partner. We sell the solution, and we have engineers that implement the solutions. Basically, I am part of the technical staff that implements the solution on-premise. We use endpoint security for our clients. We configure policies to scan the computer every single day in some cases and every week or even every moment. Basically, it protects the endpoint, and we have policies to do advanced threat protection.

McAfee Endpoint Security can be used for threat protection, for malware protection, and for data loss prevention by encrypting the end user devices using full depth encryption. We are using the latest version minus two because we generally update the antivirus to the current version after testing it. So generally it is two versions behind. We have three versions in our network, one is the latest version, then we have a minus one on critical machines and minus two on the endpoints.

The solution has three primary uses for us. Our environment is Windows-based. We don't have Mac and very little space for Linux systems. We use the solution on all of our Windows devices as a basic antivirus protection. That's our first use case. The second use case for the solution is to be able to have USB restrictions on my endpoints. And the third would be the protection of machines when, especially now in this COVID-19 climate, users connect from home. There are a lot of network-based attacks. When users are connecting from other networks, they're protected from dangers with this solution

McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection is mature, tested, and usual: this is our policy. We don't go for the latest releases. We go for the release which is before the last.
