Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"With respect to data loss prevention, I think it is helpful to the customer.""The server software console is exquisitely designed and organized for handy access and manipulation by the administrator.""Technical support is very helpful.""The interface is user-friendly and it provides a large number of options.""With proper policies and configuration, it prevents sending corporate data to both cloud storage or to flash drives and data extraction.""The most valuable feature is security.""I am satisfied with the customer service/technical support.""The solution is excellent for protecting users from data being exploited. It's also great for preventing data leakage."

"It's a straightforward solution.""Security-wise, it's one of the best.""With Sophos, I only need to generate the password and give that to a user to be able to allow them to login to the admin page of the Endpoint and do whatever they need to do. The user cannot go ahead and uninstall it. It's kept us much more secure because of this. Should any event happen on a particular system, I'm given the username and the system IP address. I get notifications and can deal with issues right away.""It's quite easy to integrate Safeguard with BitLocker""I like the support most of all.""The features that I have found most valuable are encryption tools that encrypt the hard disk and the USB sticks.""The intrusion detection system.""The solution has a great VPN."

More Sophos SafeGuard Pros →

"There are compatibility issues with the Chrome browser.""In terms of where the solution could improve, it could integrate with network solutions for ADTs, email web gateways and discovery.""I would like to have an easier and less-hassle upgrade process in future releases of the software, and extra license renewal price discounts too.""The drive side encryption can be confusing to use and needs better documentation.""There are some features that do not work with Mac.""The solution needs more advanced features.""The price is a little high and could be better.""There was an option for SQL setup in the older versions of this product and it has been removed, but we would like to see it made available as an add-on."

More McAfee Complete Data Protection Cons →

"It's a good product, but some are not happy with the boot BCN, and the point-to-point VPN requires the best protection.""There are times that this solution takes up too much memory that needs to be resolved. If it is not fixed it will definitely create issues in the future.""If it's possible, they should make all the features available because it's got a lot of features on offer, but you have to buy the license in order to add those features to the normal Endpoint. If they could make all those features available and/or offer a bundling option it would be better.""The solution's ability to integrate with other solutions, such as a DLP, should be addressed.""The integration could be a little better.""It would be ideal if the solution had different features within one agent.""The security does not have 100% authentication.""When you have the PPM chipset, you can have the power-on authentication, when you boot up your machine, you can set the six-digit passcode. As of right now, SafeGuard can't manage the six-digit passcode in terms of the expiration, and I need that added as a feature."

    Sensitive data is constantly at risk of loss, theft, and exposure. Many times, the data simply walks right out the front door on a laptop or USB device. Companies that suffer such a data loss risk serious consequences, including regulatory penalties, public disclosure, brand damage, customer distrust, and financial losses. According to a Ponemon Institute report, 7% of all corporate laptops will be lost or stolen sometime during their useful life. The rapid proliferation of mobile devices with large storage capacities and often internet access is opening up even more channels for data loss or theft, so protecting sensitive, proprietary, and personally identifiable information must be a top priority. McAfee Complete Data Protection Suites address all of these concerns and many more.
