What is McAfee Complete Data Protection?

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.

    An excellent solution for protecting from data exposure, device protection, and shadow IT
    Pros and Cons
    • "With proper policies and configuration, it prevents sending corporate data to both cloud storage or to flash drives and data extraction."
    • "The beauty of McAfee is that they are not looking at encryption from one single standpoint. It is a broader solution."
    • "The drive side encryption can be confusing to use and needs better documentation."

    What is our primary use case?

    I am actually very familiar with the on-premises solution. I am just starting to try out the cloud version. I have not really had the opportunity to exercise the capabilities fully because I need to buy the license to do that. I work with Cyber Security Africa Distribution, but even being that type of organization we still have to purchase our license to try the full solution. I have seen it work with the MVISION Cloud, but I have not tried out the data protection path. But I have reviewed all the features.  

    What is most valuable?

    I am not really an end-user so my answer is addressed talking more from the integration side. I do a lot of integration, and from this point of view, using McAfee as a data protection solution and for data classification is most valuable. I think McAfee actually fits very well with providing literally all the use cases for you. If end-users cannot classify data and solve the problem of data classification, then they can not successfully move forward and get on to data discovery using something like the McAfee Discover running it from the endpoint or running it from the network and doing network DLP (Data Loss Prevention/Data Loss Protection). We are sometimes having to look at it more from a perspective of the cost rather than actually solving the problem. It will work out so long as it helps end-users to classify their data. Some clients have some budget restrictions.  

    So, for some use cases, I think it will be good for a certain type of user. It would be best for those who need data enforcement from both endpoints and from the network. I think it is perfect for shadow IT as well. With the proper policies in place, it could prevent you from sending corporate data to both cloud storage or to flash drives. If you look at it as a device control feature, it limits what you can send to removable storage devices. Configured a different way, you can send your other unclassified data to cloud storage and the like.  

    Looking at it from a general use case as a security consultant, what most organizations try to prevent is data extrication. If you can prevent people from moving corporate data to their private clouds or to their own personal storage devices, you would have saved yourself a lot of stress. If the employee exits their security system carelessly, someone can actually extricate data during that process breach.  

    Another use case is preventing loss of confidentiality. If you are trying to ensure the confidentiality of your data, using McAfee DLP you can prevent certain classification levels of data from being sent to printers or sent through emails.  

    There is file and folder encryption and there is also complete McAfee Drive Encryption. The beauty of McAfee is that they are not looking at encryption from one single standpoint. It is a broader solution.  

    If I have FileVault on my Mac Pro, I can protect my Mac. McAfee has encryption that helps you manage encryption natively. If you have BitLocker and you prefer to use it on your products, you can and you can still have a central management console for both your endpoint and your other encryption with McAfee. I think that is actually a perfect example of how you can use MNE (Management of Native Encryption) to manage your native encryption along with other products.  

    What needs improvement?

    I think in looking at this as to how it can be improved, the drive encryption side is not as straightforward as it could be. It is a little bit heavy on the configuration part. There are a lot of options to look at. Maybe it is just that the training needs to fine-tuned a little bit or maybe the UI needs to be a little more interactive. There are so many options that you have in the product that you may not know exactly what something does if you enable an option. There is a gray area, for example, as to whether or not it is best practice is to have a pre-boot authentication or not. The usual argument is that if you do not turn on pre-boot authentication, your encryption can actually be bypassed.  

    There is a question and it is not an argument that you can easily answer because the product is not doing enough to help you out. They need a publication that actually sets that record straight, or probably they could have something like a best practice configuration guide so users can take advantage of that for determining exactly what options are best for them.  

    People do not always know what are the best practices for their environment. They try out a lot of stuff, and then if it does not work with their system, they just come to the conclusion that the solution does not work. They blame the product rather than the configuration which they do not have set correctly. So with a best practice configuration guide or something similar, it would help people take proper advantage of the solution and help them to better see the total benefits of what the solution has to offer.  

    So their configuration is complex, but this can have advantages as well if they provided the user with the information they need.  

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I think I have been using McAfee Endpoint Solution or McAfee Data Protection solutions for about five to six years now. I have been following the company's journey with product development since version 9.2 or 9.3.  

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    McAfee Complete Data Protection is quite stable. I think the only module that a lot of people seem to have had some issues with is the file and folder encryption. I am not talking about this from my point of view as I never experienced the issue personally. At one point, I used to manage a team of seven people and all my engineers always had issues with file and folder encryption.  

    In reality, I think file and folder encryption is actually more complicated than server encryption. Well, for me I think it is. Looking at encryption from two points, drive encryption does disk encryption. It does not encrypt to the file level. File and folder encryption actually encrypts to the individual file and folder level. I think the real option is — and I am not sure if McAfee is trying to achieve this drive management with file encryption or not — but I think for me if FRP (File and Removable Media Protection) worked more like a drive management system, then it would be perfect. The idea would be for it to store files and folders more like drive management than just using encryption. Right now, the way it works is more like just locking the file or the folder. If it worked more like drive management, I think there would be more value to it than there is to it today.  

    How are customer service and technical support?

    To be honest, I have actually never really needed to call support overall. The product has been working all these years and I do not have any major problems with the functionality.  

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    Data protection solutions are quite expensive, which is expected. I have had customers complain about the licensing costs of various solutions.  

    Where I actually have issues with cost would be in the cloud. If you look at the MVISION portfolio, you see that the device control is not the same as on-premises. I am not sure which parts of the MVISION products actually have device controls with the encryption.  

    The problem is that after seeing that single product within MVISION, in order to access it from the cloud, you still have to buy the full version of it. As we are on-prem and just beginning testing on the cloud, I am not exactly sure of the capabilities.  

    I think that part of the pricing is confusing to a lot of end-users. When they purchase the license from us they see that they have device control. But when I get to the cloud, there is no device control. As resellers, that puts us in a bad place, because we have to explain it to the customer. They have to purchase something additional for device protection that they thought they already had.  

    I think there was no communication about that change in the licensing when it was changed over to the cloud. So we had to take the initiative in doing other things when coaching our customers.  

    There is always back and forth when doing consultations with the customers before we finally come to a configuration that is the right one for the client. I look at information online and then see they have device control on the cloud but then there is a question as to why the client is using device control in certain circumstances. There is a question as to why they are putting certain data on the cloud even. Some do not understand best practices and that putting data on the cloud is not the solution they want anyway.   

    What other advice do I have?

    On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate this McAfee Complete Data Protection product as an eight or even a nine-out-of-ten. Just for the encryption part, I think I will say nine. The solution is actually quite stable and otherwise, it is quite good. I would definitely recommend this product to other users. The core of McAfee has been my end solution for all types of situations for me for a long time. If I have not switched yet to work with any other solution, obviously, I think it is a good one and I definitely recommend McAfee.  

    On the DLP side, I am not sure if there is much they can change in that system, because I think one part compliments the other. But on the DLP you do not have the same type of endpoints control you have in the cloud. So I think on the DLP side, they must provide better controls so the solutions are more similar in that way from both ends. If there is a way to balance from what you have on-premises and what you have in cloud, then it becomes a better product from the user perspective.  

    For data encryption, I think they need to work on the interface and the configuration and make it easier. If it could work more like a comprehensive management system, it will make more sense. It will make more sense and it will actually create more market value for end-users than just doing file and folder encryption.  

    The possibilities for integration with McAfee CDP are important. You can integrate with that solution. Not all people in all environments want to run McAfee for Endpoints. Some people also want to have that kind of synergy McAfee has in DLP and encryption. So if you are trying to encrypt the network for a sensitive environment and you have a checkpoint policy to use McAfee on your endpoint and on your DLP, configure it to mask or to encrypt a file. There has to be that type of relationship between DLP and encryption for it to work properly and accomplish these ultimate goals.  

    Some organizations use other solutions for the DLP and they also have that in the architecture. I have not yet seen that scenario, but I can imagine that there can be environments that start with McAfee endpoints and they have access to encryption and they want to extend that integration. It might be possible to do but it seems to me that it is not actually a very common way of doing things.

    Nice interface, feature-rich, and the technical support is helpful, but spinning disk performance needs to improve
    Pros and Cons
    • "The server software console is exquisitely designed and organized for handy access and manipulation by the administrator."
    • "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."

    What is our primary use case?

    We primarily use this solution for folder and disk encryption. One encrypted folder in Drive D: for each PC user and disk encryption for all notebook PCs, especially for sensitive or confidential data.

    How has it helped my organization?

    The McAfee Policy Orchestrator did a fair job in overall control and management of encryption. A centralized repository of various functions is provided in an excellent user interface and menu system.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable features are effective folder and disk encryption, and the practical server console-started agent/encryption module deployment to endpoints are highly commendable.

    The server software console is exquisitely designed and organized for handy access and manipulation by the administrator.

    Encryption user assignment and key generation can be performed fast enough.

    What needs improvement?

    Well expectedly, the upgrade process from Orchestrator v5.32 to 5.91 will be a bit painful for a lengthy and hardly completed client saturation (i.e. ensuing endpoint upgrade, if not done after server & SHA cert update committed, the client(s) will completely fail to work again) for our 1300+ endpoints. These included PCs and offline notebooks, which cannot be easily kept online over an extended period of time waiting for saturation in an undetermined upgrade order. 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.

    Procurement/license renewal options should also be devised by McAfee for continually incremental buying by an organization over its lifetime of usage.

    Additionally, export and re-import of encryption keys in a batch could also be available as an extra orchestrator module for seamless transfer in case of server migration/re-installation.

    Noticeably, the disk encryption process is far swifter on PCs/notebooks equipped with SSD drives but a speed improvement should better be available in future releases for mechanical disk drives for still being existent in the years to come.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been using McAfee Complete Data Protection for three years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    Apart from the disk encryption process that has a couple of times failed to transfer the initial encryption login password to the client PCs, in which token recovery was required, we have come across very few issues.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Good variety of modules and easy incorporation.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    We have raised support cases to McAfee and they responded in a professional and helpful manner and completed with successful resolutions.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    Our previous experience with Symantec encryption has left a lot of room for improvements such as deployment/redeployment ease and Active Directory integration. We, therefore, chose McAfee for its feature-richness and a reasonable price with good market acceptance and knowledge availability.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup can be done in two days or so, highly recommended with the assistance by experienced solution contractors.

    What about the implementation team?

    We hired a contractor I.T. company to have initially installed everything and configured the total solution to work successfully. The organization-wide deployment from scratch at the beginning is simple, fast and problem-free, enough though we preferred using remote execution of DOS scripts to copy and run the installer at client endpoints.

    In a word, it was a good and satisfactory start.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    This solution is reasonably priced.

    What other advice do I have?

    So far, we are satisfied with the overall results and the product welcomed by end-users with few complaints.

    Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

    On-premises

    If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?

    User-friendly, easy to set up, and scalable
    Pros and Cons
    • "Technical support is very helpful."
    • "There are compatibility issues with the Chrome browser."

    What is our primary use case?

    We primarily provide services to our clients.

    Clients usually use the solution mainly to audit GDPR compliance. As for the audit, they need to meet their compliance, the PCI DSS compliance, and GDPR compliance. Based on that they procure the DLP solution.

    What is most valuable?

    The classification front-end and the features for the endpoint are great aspects of the product. 

    It works absolutely fine for the customer requirements.

    It's user-friendly and easy to navigate.

    The initial setup is very easy.

    Technical support is very helpful. 

    The stability is good. 

    The product can scale. 

    What needs improvement?

    There are compatibility issues with the Chrome browser. The DLP works absolutely fine with the internet and the Firefox browser, however, it doesn't support Chrome. That's the only drawback of the DLP. Even if there is a new patch released in Chrome, McAfee DLP doesn't support it.

    There are a lot of incidents that are being captured and there is no option for deleting the older incidents from the console. However, if you want to treat that incident, then I think there is some task that has to be done and it doesn't work in the right way. We had to run some more subscriptions this year to reduce the incidents.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've used the solution for around ten years or so. Maybe even longer. It's been a long time. 

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    I would rate the stability at an eight out of ten. It's pretty reliable. There aren't really any bugs or glitches and it doesn't crash or freeze. 

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    The scalability is okay. I would rate it at an eight out of ten. 

    How are customer service and technical support?

    Technical support is absolutely fine. I have very good friends in support. Most of the time, most of my friends are working there, and I get connected with them. There aren't any problems. I'm quite satisfied with their level of knowledge and helpfulness. 

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is straightforward. It's very simple to deploy. It's just in a matter of five to ten minutes of checking out everything. On top of that, policies can be configured within 30 to 40 minutes. In that time, everything can be set up.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The pricing is reasonable. Of course, it could always technically be cheaper, however, as a company that is a systems integrator, we tend to get more margin.

    What other advice do I have?

    We are service providers, not customers. We're a platinum partner.

    I'd recommend the solution to other companies. It's more than just an antivirus. It helps with compliance. 

    However, I would advise a company that is considering buying it to understand what it can do and how it works in order to ensure it meets the needs of the organization.

    I'd rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We're mostly quite satisfied with its capabilities.

    User-friendly, support is always available, and it is the best product for GDPR compliance
    Pros and Cons
    • "The interface is user-friendly and it provides a large number of options."
    • "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."

    What is our primary use case?

    We are system integrators who do the implementation and provide support for a variety of products. One of our main areas of focus is endpoint security, along with data loss prevention, encryption, and web security.

    McAfee Complete Data Protection is one of the security solutions that we implement for our customers. It is the best match for GDPR compliance.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable features are data loss prevention and encryption.

    The interface is user-friendly and it provides a large number of options.

    The support services from McAfee are freely available at any point in time.

    Of of the features that I like the best is document tagging, where the user can specify attributes such as confidential.

    The encryption group feature will ensure that the system is compatible. If everything is fine then encryption will begin. However, if there is an incompatibility then the encryption will be halted.

    What needs improvement?

    There is a feature called manual classification that is not intuitive to use and can be improved.

    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.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have been working with this product for approximately 12 years.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    Scalability-wise, this solution is very good.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    I have experience with a lot of products from different vendors including Symantec and Microsoft. I find the other products are more complicated than McAfee.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is straightforward and easy to do. One or two policies have to be created and then it is ready for deployment. It can all be done within an hour.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    The pricing is better than that of some competing products.

    What other advice do I have?

    McAfee Complete Data Protection is the best product on the market and I recommend it. It is very simple and anyone can easily understand it.

    I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

    Excellent protection that is easy to use with simple access to the DLP
    Pros and Cons
    • "The solution is excellent for protecting users from data being exploited. It's also great for preventing data leakage."
    • "The solution needs more advanced features."

    What is our primary use case?

    Some users were concerned about their employees' information. They needed to protect this data from leakage and from any type of exploitation. Therefore, the DLP was deployed in their environment to protect them and to test the actual requirements. This is why we primarily use the solution.

    What is most valuable?

    The solution is excellent for protecting users from data being exploited. It's also great for preventing data leakage. 

    The solution is simple.

    Accessing the DLP is easy.

    What needs improvement?

    The solution needs more advanced features.

    Customers tend to not like the navigation that is offered.

    While accessing the DLP is easy, navigating inside of it is difficult.

    The policies and propagation need to be improved.

    The solution should integrate more into the Cloud. McAfee is not focusing too much on the Cloud. They need to do so.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I've been working with this solution for about 16 to 18 months.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    We've contacted technical support in the past and in general, they are quite good.

    Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

    We've previously used Symantec and Trend Micro. They all have similar features. All of them use privacy encryption technology, and they are all simple in terms of just deploying the agent. They offer encryption of the endpoint. There's no major difference between any of them.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup is straightforward. It's not complex. They make it very easy to implement the solution.

    For a company with approximately 100 users, deployment takes approximately ten to eleven days.

    What other advice do I have?

    I'm a consultant. Our company is a partner as well as a distributor.

    I would recommend companies who want some solid security products to consider this solution. McAfee is well known in the market, and it has a good reputation specifically surrounding the EPO encryption. I would recommend them.

    I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. I'd rate the solution higher if the navigation to the settings and propagation were more clear inside McAfee.

    Unified management console and scales well, but we need more granular control over the policies
    Pros and Cons
    • "The console allows us to manage not only endpoint protection, but DLP, and also integration with MVISION Cloud."
    • "We are looking for more granular control over the policies."

    What is our primary use case?

    We are a solution provider and this is one of the security products that we implement for our clients. I focus primarily on data protection and data loss prevention solutions, and in this role, I work with McAfee Complete Data Protection a lot. We also use it for encryption.

    A simple use case would be keywords and reject detection.

    Other reasons that we use it are for PII and PCI compliance.

    What is most valuable?

    The most valuable feature is the unified management console, ePO. The console allows us to manage not only endpoint protection, but DLP, and also integration with MVISION Cloud.

    What needs improvement?

    We are looking for more granular control over the policies. McAfee has some challenges in this regard.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    I have been working with McAfee Complete Data Protection

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    There are some challenges with stability when you want to fine-tune the granularity. When it is too generic, you get a lot of false-positive errors.

    What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

    I don't think that McAfee has any scalability-related issues because they deal with a lot of enterprise companies.

    Our clients are typically the public sector, although we have a lot of large, enterprise customers as well.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The most important thing is how they enable our team. They provide us with good support during the pre-sales stages.

    How was the initial setup?

    The initial setup for McAfee is straightforward, and not very complex. The fine-tuning, however, takes time.

    What other advice do I have?

    We can see that a lot of things are moving to the cloud, and I want to see more cloud solutions and more integration where we can make use of them. As time goes on, we can see that there are more customers on the cloud.

    I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

    Scans and protects data-at-rest
    Pros and Cons
    • "With respect to data loss prevention, I think it is helpful to the customer."
    • "There are some features that do not work with Mac."

    What is our primary use case?

    We have huge clients, like Toshiba, Bangalore International Airport, Viacom, and other companies.

    What is most valuable?

    With respect to data loss prevention, I think it is helpful to the customer; except for a few limitations with Mac. 

    What needs improvement?

    The full set of features are enabled only for Windows. There are some features that do not work with Mac. With respect to device control, it can be quite limited for Mac.

    With Mac, we experience problems with post-related issues, with the device controller, and with email-related listings. Network communication is another thing. Certain rules just do not work for our Mac environments.

    The security could also be improved when it comes to Mac. Most of our customers ask for these features. They want these same features for their Mac devices. We're just hosts — it's up to McAfee to provide these features.

    They should also offer encryption and device control for Linux.

    For how long have I used the solution?

    We have been reselling McAfee Complete Data Protection for seven years.

    What do I think about the stability of the solution?

    McAfee Complete Data Protection is both stable and scalable.

    How are customer service and technical support?

    The technical support is good. It's easy for us to reach support whenever we experience any issues. They put us right through to human beings — we don't have to converse with a robot first. 

    How was the initial setup?

    This solution is easy to deploy and maintain.

    What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

    McAfee Complete Data Protection is a little bit expensive. The price could be lower. In regard to data loss prevention, we have different licensing.

    What other advice do I have?

    We need to check a customer's environment and infrastructure before recommending this solution. Based on that, we can then decide on the type of setup they'll require. Later on, when their new environment increases, they're able to scale up easily.

    On a scale from one to ten, I would give McAfee Complete Data Protection a rating of nine.

    A data protection solution with valuable security features
    Pros and Cons
    • "The most valuable feature is security."
    • "The price is a little high and could be better."

    What is our primary use case?

    We use it, for example, for USB devices. When we are using USB devices, we have to put the password to open the USB stick. Without it, we cannot use the USB stick anywhere.

    The most valuable feature is security.

    What needs improvement?
