“In a world with a lot of security options, it's hard to pick just one”

OverallWe used McAfee for two years when we decided to cancel our license. This decision was 100% because another company offered us a deal we couldn't refuse. I don't want to name the other company because I know the deal is no longer offered. Long story short, this new tools seems to make my computer run a little faster, and they claim to be just as secure. I have never suffered a major security breach at any company I have worked with, and I am glad I haven't. Who is to say whether that is coincidence or whether these tools are doing their job. At the end of the day, buying any security tool is a bit like buying a body guard. There's always going to be someone that could take that guard down with the right amount of force. You have to find the guard that makes you feel safe and helps you sleep at night. I never lost a single night's sleep with McAfee, and I have maybe lost one or two with this new company. You have to find the guard that is right for you.
ProsGreat interface. Everything about McAfee's brand and tools feels and looks professional. I can tell that they take security very seriously. I have had minimal interaction with their Support Team, and my issues were quickly resolved. Set up is extremely quick and self explanatory. Getting my team set up was done in less than a week after purchase, and McAfee has been doing it's job quietly in the background ever since. Because it's such a widely used tool, most problems can be solved with a quick Google search. Which is a huge plus for a guy like me.
ConsI am not tech savvy enough to understand why, but I feel that McAfee slows my system down more than some of the alternatives I have used. And I am fairly tech savvy. It's really frustrating to adopt tools that are supposed to improve your safety, but it's hard to love them when they are reducing your productivity. That being said, if you are vetting these tools for a large company, I would imagine this slowdown is well worth the peace of mind McAfee can otherwise bring. I feel like scans can take longer than expected sometimes, making it difficult to find the right time of day to perform them (in the morning it can halt a teammate's productivity, but at the end of the day it could extend past closing time). I always hate to mention price as a con, especially for things that can save your millions of dollars, but McAfee is not cheap. I'll let you work out whether or not that matters for you and your business.

“10 Stars!”

OverallI truly have had an awesome experience with McAfee and I would come back to this service, time and time because it truly is worth it. It eliminates problems and provides top of the line protection, so that I don't then have to problem solve. So, if I had to name this software, I would consider it to be the Ultimate problem solver.
ProsI've been using this security protect for the past 4 years on my MacBook. It hands down is the best in comparison to its competitors. I love that I don't need to actively do anything, to ensure that I am protected, it simply works in the background. It was truly a great investment, as, I kid you not, I have never had one single scare or worry. I know that I am safe because, the program runs malware checks and updates every day and once for the week, every two days. I also like that the interface is easy to navigate, if I decide to do a manual scan of everything on my computer, I simply have to click scan. Not a lot of different steps and the reports are always clear and easy to understand.
ConsIts so good at times, I almost forget about it. It would be good, if I were to get periodic notifications. Also, the scans do take a really long time to complete, so you have to be prepared to not use your computer for a good hour and a half.

“To save you from Malware Threats!”

OverallWhen talking about my experience both I and my brother and also a lot of my friends are using McAfee as the anti malware protection product for our machines. I think this helped me to keep my machine safe for the past 2 years. Our previous office lap tops also secured using this.
ProsFor the sake of the beginners, this is a system that protect devices in the cloud or in a network from security threats. In other words it is an anti malware protection product which is designed to secure windows systems. It is easy to use and the latest version is faster than the others. It is suitable for the users even who are unaware of technical processes. It is updating with the time and the newest version is always well improved than the others. It is very efficient. It can block viruses even just in few seconds. It can detect every virus and malware ad provide real time protection. Unlike the others, most of the times, the latest version of McAfee does not slow down your PC while it is booting. According to my opinion, McAfee is lesser expensive than the other related products in the market.
ConsIt is using kind of large amount of memory while scanning. Old versions occur a noticeable slow down. It is great if the efficiency can be improved.

“Decent anti-malware software”

OverallI am quite satisfied with the performance of this software in screening out malicious websites and malware. Endpoint Security is certainly a step up from the previous version of the software the company provided. It is more efficient and provides comprehensive security.
ProsThe affordable prices of this software is the most enticing feature. It provides comprehensive protection from risky websites and sophisticated malware. I have particularly noticed after purchasing this software that it effectively screens all suspicious and malicious threats in my email and filters them out. This is the most worthy feature of its software. It has provided me great relief as my computer has been safeguarded from malicious programs since its purchase. I would certainly recommend McAfee Endpoint Security to my colleagues and friends who are looking for a trustworthy program in this age of mass marketing that is often short of promises.
ConsThe fact that I cannot turn of pop-ups every now and then I the most irritable feature of this software. I do not need to be reminded of the ample benefits of this program every now and then. I would savor the options of having to use this software in the background with all of its supreme efficiency.

“Mcfeee Endpoint Security”

OverallIt was not entirely appropriate, although it is very stable (it does not generate any crash of the service). The protection against malware in real time is efficient but against viruses, they need to extend the database more against them. Uninstalling the agent is not necessary administrative privileges are needed, therefore it is not recommended for any end user.
ProsThe solution can work silently. It allows to protect the mail electronic, web mail, peer-to-peer applications, instant messaging, communications via Skype, type of transfer (HTTP, HTTPS, FTP, Wi-Fi), media (USB, CD, DVD) , the printers, the fax. - Supervision: allow data transfer. - Prevention: block the transfer of data. - Alert: notification to administrators. - Encryption: guaranteed encryption before data transfer. - Quarantine: awaiting authorization.
ConsIt needs to improve the heuristic, it does not detect many low impact viruses that are detected and corrected by freeware versions of other antivirus. It consumes many resources and installs features separately executing several services, in my opinion these can be unified. The number of viruses it has in a database is relatively low. It needs to be more extensive according to the market of new threats in the network.

“Endpoint to Cyber Attackts”

OverallOur Firm is using McAfee End Point Security for 3 Years and It really helps to maintain a problem-free IT environment and allowed every employee to work smoothly.
ProsMcAfee Endpoint Security helps to streamline the IT infrastructure of the firm by limiting the problems from Viruses, Trojans, Spams and everyother cyber related problems. It automatically cleans the infected files. And frequent updates to application is enhancing the protection to latest cyber attacks. The User Interface is also eyecatching and easy to navigate. Cross platform support is really helpful to firms which using linux, windows and mac operating systems. At the end, the application's activities are neatly logged and fedback to user/administrator and to the Mcafee company to improve the Quality.
ConsIt sometimes very problematic application for low-end devices, because it use some considerable amount of processing power to run the application. Sometimes, infected files (previously valuable files) are automatically removing without repairing, which cannot be undo. And the price of the application is also pave the path to think again about buying the software.

“One of the best antivirus software with firewall protection and real-time scanning”

ProsReally effective antivirus software that helped me remove many virus and trojans from my machine. It also helps me protect my data through real time scanning and firewall security measures. There are also frequent updates to this software for improvements or new features. It is one of the best antivirus and antispyware applications. Need to buy subscriptions per PC annually and works really great. Gives decent reporting about the areas scanned, infected or any issues detected. It also provides option to quarantine viruses and malwares. One of the best useful feature is the schedule scan, which helps me schedule a scan on daily or weekly basis for enhanced security, keeping the computer safe and working super fast. Scanning different areas on the hard drive doesn't slow down the performance too.
ConsNot very efficient for malware removal, but serves the purpose of virus and trojans. Removes infected files instantly before warning, at times difficult to recover the files without infection. Seems to be one of the best security softwares in the market as compared to it's competitors QuickHeal and Norton.

“End to End protractor for Corporate Machines!!”

OverallHave been using this software for the past 2 years and it's the best which I have used so far. It also keeps secured all the computers in the network which we use in our company, so if you are looking for a company network level protection then this is the best option available in the current market.
ProsNo matter how careful you are while downloading or installing a software OR while browsing the internet, there is always a risk of getting hacked or attacked by malicious worms or virus or any online threats. To be safe and secure you need an Antivirus Software which safeguards your PC/laptop from such online threats. McAfee Endpoint security is one of the best antiviruses I have used which is very easy to manage and very effective. Always keep updating with latest protection security patches against viruses and keeps system protected.
Cons- Might slow the booting time of your system - but that is only when your system is starting. - Little more expensive than I'd like. - Sometimes it blocks software which we use, which we might have to manually allow to run. - Not too many issues which I can mention as of now.

“Protects operating systems, files, among others. Easy to manage, and agile to detect threats.”

ProsThis software allows the integration of several endpoint protection technologies that help combat and analyze threats that can cause damage to computers, programs, files, emails and systems. McAfee Endpoint Security uses very advanced defenses that allow it to detect malicious actions before they are executed, that is, it deciphers the behaviors of suspicious actions that could cause damages such as viruses, adware, trojans, spyware, among others that attack the computer system. As for the management it is easy to manage, it allows the protection of the information that is kept in the files, and when you open the program with just a clicks you start to execute the protection, or you can program it, and for those who do not have as much knowledge of operating systems, McAfee Endpoint Security is compatible with Windows and Mac, among others.
ConsIt is a very good software, maybe it presents some problems of incompatibility, but it is more of a lack of knowledge of the one that installs on the requirements of the program than of the program itself.

“Essential protection for your personal and commercial information”

OverallIf you want to make your files, pictures, projects and future plans protected then McAfee Endpoint Security must be your first choice.
ProsMcAfee Endpoint Security saved me from serious attacks several times. It happened while opening scam mails, installing unknown softwares and visiting less secured websites. With endpoint defense technologies McAfee Endpoint Security foresees and prevents threats in real time before they infect your computer. Nowadays with the improvement of the internet technologies cyber attacks also increased. As I am working in a big company business plans of our company and their security are very important for us. To keep our information safe and secure McAfee Endpoint Security is our choice among corporate endpoint protection products. The best feature of McAfee Endpoint Security is absolutely machine learning algorithms to help identify malicious behavior. It continuously develops itself while protecting you and prevents you from new attacks.
ConsAfter using McAfee Endpoint Security there was a little delay in my computer's boot time. Actually my computer started a little late compared before. But it is not big problem for me considering it protects me from big data loss.

“Absurdly powerfull! Easy management”

OverallMcAfee ENS is a good product and superior compared with legacy McAfee VSE. Sometimes the protection against zero day malware is not so good (Just in case when using McAfee GTI thah analyze .exe, .pdf and .apk files); for email or office threats I feel like I'm not protected so I deeply recomment to use the module McAfee Adaptative Threat Protection with machine learning activated. In this last case the ENS is boosted and becomes perfect and light running in the system.
ProsManaged by ePO the ENS is amazing product for large organizations and easy to manage. Modern and easy to see and get compliance for all environment. The engine and detection method are absurdly powerfull
ConsInterface is fluent and user friendly although a bit slow navigating in the product settings.

“Mcafee Endpoint Security- One software for all protection”

OverallI have relied upon various Security software in recent time but I didn't find any match for it. I still use this software for web and server security, system & network security. New user require some time to learn about the features but after everything lokks fine.
ProsMcafee Endpoint Security software has assisted us in protecting our code and confidential data from all kind of threats. This is the best Security software I ever came across. The best part here is that Mcafee Endpoint Security includes virus scan, web security, firewall protection. It seemed like that everything was served in one place. Software supports both operating systems Linux and Mac, moreover, it also works well on Windows and other OS. Its web security features really helped us a lot as we need to protect web users from all kind of security threats. Firewall protection never let any hacker to attack computer and server which make sure data is secured. In this software, I have found various improvements like design, speed etc.
ConsI have spent a reasonable time with software and still use it every day to prevent various threats. The thing I did not like the most about this software is that its complex user Interface. when I first time started operating it, I couldn't understand all the features well. But with time everything started getting good.

“McAfee Endpoint Security protects our business from outside attacks.”

OverallTop notch security that protects every device on the network!
ProsIt only takes one security breach at your business to realize that security software isn't an option. We upgraded to McAfee's Endpoint Security system, because the free programs weren't cutting it. They offer a variety of products that span from iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and Linux. All of your devices on your network can be protected. The difference in Endpoint is the enhanced detection and correction capabilities that can make alterations to security controls in Windows 10. McAfee notifies us of threats immediately when they are found, and we setup default actions for when that happens.
ConsAs you might expect, McAfee's Endpoint Security can be pricey. It depends fully on the needs of your business and would recommend you reach out to a member of their sales team to determine which features you need. They customize the software so you can rest-assured that all of the vulnerabilities will be taken care of. I did have a few interactions with customer support that were difficult. If you are new to the cyber security scene, you will need to ask them to put it in layman's terms.

“McAfee provides ultimate high security from malwares by all means. ”

ProsMcAfee is more authentically designed for protection against viruses or malwares or bugs online. It keeps the servers secure and ensures high security in all of the internet activities. High Risk malwares and viruses are automatically detected and depleted automatically by this tool. Ensuring fire wall security and essential protections against viruses from all kind of plugin devices and fax or mails. It also let us schedule virus scan to keep the system safely updated against all kind of viruses. It's a reliable tool with lots of working efficiency.
ConsMcAfee is very efficient in scanning or detecting the viruses but often the viruses of small impacts get easily transferred into system without even any notification. Some viruses that are being deleted by this tool , still infects the files. McAfee is also quite heavy in working as it greatly slows down the other activities in the desktop. I've noticed a great decline in speed of windows or running of files after installing this tool. But more or less , this tool has provided us with much more protection and saved lots of time and money.

“Absolutely Perfect ”

OverallIn summary, There is 95% perfection in this construction and functionality of this state-of-the-art Anti-Virus judging by the frequent update and the reliability it gives its users (Like myself). I have used it for 3 months and it is really Excellent! Thanks again to the Admins...you guys are doing great!
ProsHonestly, I have used so many antiviruses like Avast Pro, Kaspersky, Bitdefender, Emsisoft Anti-Malware, etc. But, I fell in love with this antivirus (McAfee Endpoint Security) because of some cogent reasons and benefits which are: It gives me the ease and comfort of getting rid of malicious viruses on a regular based using the programmable real time scanning functionality. Even when I forget to set the scanning schedule due to my busy nature as the Senior IT specialist in my Firm, the Microsoft Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) performs checks at regular intervals to determine the user Idle state: this is the point where the auto scan starts and surprisingly, your next activities will be as swift as possible after the full scan is completed. With this auto scan feature, I am always confident and reliant that all my Company's data are safe and secured. Another great feature of this software is that there is frequent update which makes it equal to the task to combat even the most sophisticated virusthis is indeed a great one and Kudos to the Admins!
ConsOh Yes! this App is great. But, I would like the Admins to update it to be bale to let you know the infected files (which could contain some invaluable date) before eliminating them-to avoid loss of irredeemable documents and information...Very Important.

“An Amazing Software to protect your Network and regular Devices.”

OverallMcAfee doesn't only eliminate viruses and malicious attacks, it also provides you with a summary of the websites that you may have received the viruses from so that in the future you avoid those sites. This is a very distinctive and valuable feature for me and I am very satisfied with McAfee.
ProsI like how simple and straightforward McAfee is. it is supposed to protect your device and it does it in the best possible way. it runs in the background so that it doesn't interrupt your work, whenever a threat occurs it will handle it and when you open McAfee it will give you a list of the threats and the sites where they came from so that you stay away from those sites in the future. Also, if you have a big company and are afraid of possible threats and malware online attacks, McAfee can protect your entire Network and establishment. it is very easy to administrate and control.
ConsWhen you've been using McAfee for a long time, your PC might get slower over time as it keeps updating itself and using more and more CPU. However, if your device is strong enough, that should not be a problem!

“McAfee provides you Security”

OverallSecurity and protection for your device is easier and lighter with McAfee Endpoint Security.
ProsI started using on my current job McAfee Endpoint Security as it's the security software used at my workplace. I've had a good experience with it, many threats detected before they could do any harm. The impact on the performance of the device is negligible, you don't feel that there's a security software running on your machine the whole time. The included firewall also works great. I also like the stats or insights this software provides, which tells you how many threats were identified in the last 30 days, the last time a threat was eliminated, and much more. Also the event log shows you every action with more details.
ConsNot too much to complain about it. I think the only think I don't like too much is that it's not too customizable, but I haven't had the need to customize it either, so not a big issue.

“McAfee is an efficient working tool with utmost security precision. ”

OverallMcAfee is my primary choice for securing the network and the system. By far , it has been quite productive for me by securing my files which saves me tons of time and lots of money.
ProsMcAfee consists of high precision features which ensures max security over the browsing activities and servers. It highly secures the browsers and systems and keeps the systems scanned for any harmful viruses or malwares. It also makes sure to keep the system secured from any harmful content from any plugin devices. We can also ensures safety by scheduling system scans or manually checks malwares from any files or folders.
ConsAlthough McAfee works well but it also consumes lots of system memory and slows down the whole working system. Due to its higher precision security , we have also lost few of our precious working files just because they got infected. Still, for me its overall performance is quite well.

“Great Security Solution”

OverallIt´s been a good experience so far. The product has been deployed and used for sometime with no roadblocks on his core functions.
Pros- Easy to deploy and setup for the First Time - Light resources usage on Client Machines - It gets updated frequently - Robust Virus detection engine - Easy Administration and client monitoring
Cons- McAfee Support is not that good. They need to improve their Technical Support Team. The response time is too high. - Could be somewhat pricey.

“Carefree Internet Security”

ProsMcAfee Endpoint Security is provided to us as part of our internet service package. I have found it to be easy to set up and leave alone to do its job. I will go in every now and again and check the logs but have found McAfee to be always secure.
ConsNo complaints from me on McAfee Endpoint Security.

“Fast Powerful Reliable”

ProsAn antivirus solution that provides maximum security with low resource consumption on the client. I would say that it works much more optimized and consistent than many similar products. Fast virus database update keeps users safe.
ConsOccasionally blocking existing applications on the computer. We can overcome these by negotiating with the IT department.

“The original AV for Business”

OverallWe've have had a positive experience with it. With growing pains, we were able to get it installed on our 2012 server, and checking for updates each day. It's very easy from the control panel to see what clients are out of date or which clients haven't checked in. It's very easy to push updates downstream and do it silently from the user. Would recommend for any business environment.
ProsEasy to manage, migrate, and deploy software to network computers Easy to add additional users to subscription Easy to use admin panel to push down updates instead of having 100+ clients download updates individually.
ConsPrice - it can be pretty pricey as gaps in the software is for 1-25 users and then 25-50, so having 26 users causes you to pay for another 24 users you may not use. Setup can be a bit cumbersome if you don't designate a server or set one up, as you have to go in and manually turn off syncs and install it in stand-alone mode.

“A Good enterprise security tool”

OverallA great product, working as intended. Implementation was easy and fast, when our org implemented the tool, they just pushed the installation remotely to all devices connected to our enterprise network and installation was don in minutes. Did not notice any impact on my laptops overall performance.
ProsImplementation was easy. Seamless proactive protection. It is integrated to our enterprise security information and event management. It has least/no impact on the performance of our workstations. With the number of blocked incidents reported, I can say that this solution functions as intended.
ConsIt's firewall feature seems to have an incompatibility issue with our laptops and in our cloud service provider. Though it rooted from our organization's poor planning in acquiring the software, I think its still worth mentioning just a heads up for anyone to consider these incompatibility issues.

“A strong antivirus to protect our devices from powerful threats.”

OverallMcAfee Endpoint Security is a best tool for removing and detecting the virus to stop them from entering in our system from different website. Many effected files try to enter in our system but this suit detect the and remove them instantly. It can also scan portable devices connected with our system. Mobile version is also available and so helpful for user to keep safe my cell from various and harmful viruses.
ProsMcAfee is an Endpoint Security for our devices and provides us complete security against threats. Security Features are quite enough for protecting our several devices form attack our devices. Easy to install on all kind of devices, and provides us great security to our system. Custom and deep scan is very useful for us to scan all drives of systems and remove the virus safely. McAfee worked 24/7 and secure our system from online threats.
ConsMcAfee antivirus is good but license subscription is very tricky and expensive so it need to be more economical for us to purchase the premium version. Full system scan takes so much time to complete and also slow down our system. Automatic updates are good but it should be upgrade manually as per our needs. McAfee require a lot of memory for work and sometime system got stuck while working.

“Serves its purpose”

OverallGood virus scan, it definitely does the job if you don't mind slowing down your computer.
ProsMcAfee serves the purpose of antivirus software. It catches everything within seconds of downloading or clicking on something suspicious. It is constantly running in the background to protect your computer and prevents you from accidentally downloading destructive virus or spyware to your computer.
ConsThe only negative thing I have to say about McAfee is that it slows down your computer significantly. It may be just because it is constantly running in the background, but it is very noticeable. If you choose to not run it in the background, then you schedule virus scans, but even this takes hours and slows things down. When I selected the options to run scheduled scans, my computer frequently became frozen forcing me to restart.

“Effective corporate endpoint protection with a lot of features”

OverallIt keeps secured every computer on the network. We can focus on new ideas while McAfee Endpoint Security takes care of security.
ProsManaging and protecting your personal files, documents and business plans became essential issue in nowadays. To stay ahead of competitors in the market you should apply advanced technologies and protect your new plans. Therefore you will need effective corporate endpoint protection. Among corporate endpoint security products my company's choice is McAfee Endpoint Security. Because it delivers maximum security with complete protection against attacks and infections. Another advantage of McAfee Endpoint Security is compatibility. You can use it almost in any operating system. After observing McAfee Endpoint Security's success in our company I switched to it on my personal computer too. McAfee Endpoint Security is also available in mobile devices. I use an android device and I have entrusted my phone's security to McAfee Endpoint Security too.
ConsAll is great but whenever full scan starts my computer starts working slower than usual.But I can stand for it as long as it keeps my files secured.

“Advanced security and realtime protection”

OverallIt saved my computer from infection several times.Thanks to it my files are safe and secure.
ProsFor me the best feature of McAfee Endpoint Security is realtime protection. Whenever I visit any website if the website contains anything dangerous it prevents me opening such websites. Usually such websites seems user friendly and family friendly. Maybe they will not steal your information, but most of them infect your computer and show you disturbing ads. I came across with such cases in my personal experience but after installing McAfee Endpoint Security all kind of malwares detected and deleted. McAfee Endpoint Security is also using machine learning system which is improving itself while detecting new viruses. It updates virus database regularly to maintain more advanced security.
ConsSometimes it reacts while installing a new software which is safe. It is a little annoying but considering that there would be some thread or infection I think I can stand for it.

“A good defense for your business network.”

OverallIf you have to protect a very large business network, this software is perfect for you, has very high security standards and will guarantee the security of your company, protecting against hacker attacks and malicious software.
ProsMcAfee Endpoint Security presents a very complete security proposal for your business networks, it is very useful when you manage a very large network and require complete security, it has several features that allow you to configure who uses your company's network, preventing access to low security sites and downloads that may contain malicious software, also preventing access to personnel without permissions, allowing separate networks for guests, this guarantees the security of your company, also preventing the attack of hackers, as it limits access and protects the network by layers of privileges and security.
ConsAlthough it offers a very complete service, its main advantage is its high consumption of resources, it requires a lot of hardware power for its correct operation, sometimes it is so safe that it costs to configure proxies since it limits or blocks them too much and sometimes this makes the job very difficult.

“Makes system slow and does not make a great difference”

OverallI have sweet and sour experience with McAfee. Initially i really like this but slowly as it starting impact my laptops and PC, i started searching alternatives to it and this made my life easier. I no longer paid for the subscription and simply used windows defender.
ProsMcAfee gives the summary of active threats and the threats it has handled. Also, possible files or software if ran can prove harmful for system. Every time it ran, it provided a summary and that gives me a list of files and figuring out the sites i should not be using.
ConsI did not like the updates. Like every day you switch on laptop there is one new update. I find it quite annoying. I had the premium version and felt it makes my system slow at times. Post installation when i just had widows defender, i found it does equally good job without impacting system's performance.

It is easy to administer, works in the background which will not affect the use of the computer with any other software, you can schedule scans to the computer and external devices.

“ Complete and lightweight antivirus ”

Overallmy experience has been good, several times it has saved me from being a victim of Trojans hosted on mobile disks where other antivirus programs have failed, McAffe has been able to identify and block the threat
ProsMcAfee is a very light antivirus to download, install and scan the pc, it does not affect the processes considerably while reviewing the components of your computer. It is highly recommended, very instinctive in handling. Another point in your favor is that the cost is not high, you can make payments by installments I have been working with McAffe products for over 15 years and have always maintained the quality of their services
ConsMcAfee can present permeability in some moments if you do not update the version on time, that usually happens when you have a demo version and you do not register in a paid version

“Goodbye to Virus Headache”

OverallThe experience with the software has been astonishing, I really like how it protects you more actively from web pages that have hidden Bitcoin Miners and use the ram of your pc without your permission, and how is easy to set up over your pc. Also its really light on the pc processing so I wont have to worry about opening other software that demands a large amount of computer capacities,which I do all the time.
ProsThe whole interface is really intuitive if I want to set up something with the firewall option there is it, really easy to use, and the web protection is always working fine, just a few days ago it gave me a warning about this music website I was checking out, and it was running a BTC miner over my PC without my permission and it blocked it. I used to have other anti-virus software and whenever I visited such sites those antivirus never warned me about those things. I am sticking with Mcafee for a while due to those reasons.
ConsMaybe the price can scare the user of not buying the full version, since there are emore accesible softwares nowadays, but apart from that, it's running just fine(and better) than most protection and antivirus software I used so far.

“full-featured signature-based endpoint client which can be configured to meet own needs”

OverallA stable endpoint client with solid server-based tools to administer it even in large deployments of hundreds or thousands of endpoints. Good overview over the dashboards and good opportunities to drill down to the issues with a few clicks and keep a healthy environment running.
ProsThe EPO server which is used to manage the endpoint client offers an impressive and quite complete set of tools to administer the directory environment through policies, server tasks, client tasks and pretty much all you need. this makes the product very comfortable to administer for IT departments. the client - given the important applications have been whitelisted, which is key to any antivirus deployment and needs discipline and continuous effort - is reasonably stable and does not misuse resources on the endpoint workstations.
ConsI did not encounter any specific downside while implementing and using this piece of software. I did not have much direct contact with support, this happened only a few times since I have been setting up this with a vendor. But I was not impressed with the reaction time and helpfulness of the service, although it was still very acceptable.

“Performance significantly improved than previous version. Not slow anymore”

OverallMcAfee is installed on each one of Company owned Mac's and Windows laptops to ensure that they are compliant with the policies for threat prevention and ensure that Firewall is always turned on. It definitely helps with Malware detection and prevention and the agent runs quietly in background with affecting performance of machine. Very satisfied with version 5 onwards.
Pros- Auto Detection of new pluggable hardware like USB drives and memory cards and scans automatically - McAfee agent monitor runs in the background and collects and send props automatically. - Newer policies can be easily pushed by IT staff and enforced as well - The console for Mac is now super fast and very helpful for threat prevention.
Cons- Agent monitor/Console GUI can be updated. looks like little old school - Eventlogs can be made more user readable

“An essential security tool for your documents”

OverallWe solely depend on this anti-virus in protecting all of our machines in our company. All our files are always secure and safe from hackers and viruses.
ProsI like how it is easy to install and use McAfee Endpoint security in any computer. It has protected my files from being accessed by intruders who may be having an ill motive to interfere with the information. My work involves a lot of research in opening malicious files and spam emails when am looking for various information. This tool protects my computer from viruses that may damage the stored files. The firewall protection protects the collected data from being accessed by the online hackers. It has real time scanning functionality that keeps on running underground protecting the gadget from malicious viruses when am browsing.
ConsWhenever am doing full scan of my computer it keeps on running slow until the full scan is complete. I don't understand the reason why.

“Easy to use for Mac OS ”

ProsThe program is easily accessed on start up or from the menu bar at the top of the Mac OS. The drop down gives access to several features, including running an update immediately or scanning your whole drive or various parts of the drive. Actively stops malicious software, gives a convenient notification and puts in quarantine. Mostly runs on its own, just make sure your updates are current as new files are added often
ConsSystem scan can take a long time if you run the entire computer, including back up drive. If you don't set to constantly check for updates, a brand new threat could get by the system. I don't believe that has ever happened to me, but I have it open on log in and update it before using programs that link with the web.

“An antivirus that fulfills its function, is a guarantee of protection.”

ProsGuarantees greater protection from possible computer threats than other antivirus. Its security levels (perimeter, end point and data security) that include new and advanced scanning functions, identify and eliminate vulnerabilities, increasing user productivity. This software guarantees the availability of information, avoiding its loss, thus contributing to the efficient use of resources for the benefit of the company's objectives and not to maintenance. Another positive point is that the manufacturer offers direct technical advice and is certified by the supplier.
ConsFirewall personnel are incompatible with proxy servers and the Local Area Network. In some cases, it does not recognize the applications it should and should not block.

“Better Than Norton”

OverallMcAfee protects the workstations at our company from being vulnerable to viruses and attackers. It is a solid line of defense that is reliable once it is setup. The easy updates allow for it to continually stay vigilant against the newest threats which takes some burden off of IT.
ProsMcAfee generally is low maintenance for a virus protection software. It provide summaries for anything that it might have noticed on your computer and does its job protecting you from attacks. It is easy to update and has stayed up to date in terms of the latest threats.
ConsMcAfee can be difficult to manage if there is an issue within the software itself. The messages that it provides does not leave a lot of information on how to resolve the issues and sometimes it is difficult to find the solution.

“McAfee Endpoint Security is my favorite security system”

ProsWhat I like about Mcafee is that it is always working in real time on our computer to detect possible threats while we work, on the other hand it is one of the most recognizable antivirus and usually new updates are always made and this makes it even more sure, with McAfee I can set the dates and times for you to perform the scan and help CPU performance, have a free trial available and offer a version according to the operating system that you use either MAC, Linux or Windows
ConsWhat I like the least about the system is that it is usually very heavy and make the computer slower and to make the most of it, it is necessary to have good hardware, another problem is that if the computer's operating system is very old, McAfee does not It will work, if you want to take advantage of all the benefits of the system you have to buy the license and it is very expensive.

“Is Your Antivirus Program Strong?”

ProsMcAfee distinguishes some features from other manufacturers. McAfee develops a new generation anti-malware engine that improves device performance while providing enhanced security. The effectiveness of this anti-malware engine has been proven by AV-Test and AV Comparatives tests on both computer and mobile devices. McAfee has a completely renovated interface that is compatible with both Windows and Mac-based computers. With the enhanced Wi-Fi Security, this feature determines which network is safe and provides users with a secure Wi-Fi connection.
ConsAt first startup of the computer, and occasionally, it uses 100% cpu. Apart from that, it works successfully.

“Protect your PCs and others devices”

OverallProtected my computers from malware infection and also from unsafe sites.
ProsIt is simple to move, has several purposes and compatibility. I use in 3 notebooks in my house and 2 more android phones. On android it does not consume so much battery, its great, I never had problems with locking and I use the True Key a lot. On computers I have been using it for over 3 years and will continue to use, mainly because the annuity is not so expensive and can be purchased for unlimited handsets.
Conswhen it is scanning it uses a lot of memory, mainly the computer, and if I am using some developer program or playing it is almost certain that I will have lags, however I can solve this by scheduling the scanning schedule.

OverallOverall we very much enjoy McAfee Endpoint Security. We have been using it for years and it has done a great job of protecting our servers.
ProsWe use McAfee Endpoint Security to protect our IT department as well as a few other departments in our company. It does a great job of detecting and protecting us from malware and viruses. The initial set up was relatively pain free compared to other implementations that we have done.
ConsOne thing we really dislike about McAfee Endpoint Security is that it makes itself very visible. For one, it can slow down computers while handling large tasks. It constantly pops up and requires updates. These aren't huge issues, but they are complaints we have received from others in our company.

“McAfee”

OverallAll endpoints are protected with McAfee signature based files to catch and remove all known viruses. It's centrally managed just like any other business class antivirus and performs as expected.
ProsWe have owned McAfee Complete End Point Protection for Business for a year now and it's performed as expected. We added data loss prevention on top of the end point protection allowing us to monitor and stop email traffic containing PII. All emails containing PII are force encrypted before they can be sent to protect PII. It's easy to set-up, manage, and monitor. Great tool with great features.
ConsA little bit of a learning curve is necessary but what application doesn't have a learning curve. Other than that, we haven't had any big issues. McAfee support is pretty good and will respond to tickets in a timely manner and will work with you until the issue is resolved.

“Protects you from viruses but uses a lot of resources.”

OverallOveral Im satisfied with McAfee but from time to time i hate it for its heavy usage.
ProsMy company uses McAfee Endpoint security and it does it's job pretty well when it comes to protecting your workstation from malicious software and attacks, and its pre-boot data encryption works flawlessly well. McAfee can scan your attachments before sending your email to the recepients.
ConsThe most annoying thing about McAfee is its resource usage. It hits your hardware really hard when it scans for viruses. it is very active in the background and the most reseoursec that it uses is RAM, so even on high end machines with core i7, 8 GBs RAM it knows to slow your PC from time to time especialy at boot times and after boot.

“I have not had any security breaches while using this product.”

ProsI like that this program runs in the background and continuously provides protection against threats such as malware, spyware, ransomware, and viruses. It does not seem to slow down the CPU or bog down computer performance in any way when running in the background and doing its tasks.
ConsI do not like the user interface of this software. Security tasks and options are not as easily user accessible or controlled as with other popular security software. This makes me feel in less control as the end user. While running in the background is my favorite feature, I would like to see greater options for controlling these background tasks and that so with greater specificity than what is already provided by the GUI.

“McAfee Complete Endpoint Protection Review”

OverallThe product is evolving to give a global security solution, engaging all devices and products together under one interface. McAfee GW Security will be a game changer here.
ProsMy experience with McAfee is positive. The product is evolving to give a global security solution, engaging all devices and products together under one interface which is synergistic with the Healthcare industry. McAfee GW Security will be a game changer here at our institution. They give excellent support, they are proactive to solve issues, and willing to integrate their products.
ConsMcAfee GW Security and McAfee Child Safety need some improvement as they are relatively new. I'm assuming that the fine people at McAfee are working to resolve this shortcoming.

“The lightest and most effective antivirus, does not affect the development of the pc while scan”

OverallOnce my PC was attacked by a virus that my previous antivirus did not recognize, the free installation of McAffe solved me in the first scan.
ProsMcAfee offers a range of options for different users, small users such as households and domestic companies that use PC or large users that use more than 25 PCs and with several servers, this antivirus allows to shield the access to the components and the security of the data and access to the web. McAfee presents a high range of options, including the protection of the Smartphone of team members. You can access the product through the web, without having to go to a physical store.
ConsAn element that I dislike is the new interface, in my personal opinion, I like the previous version more.
