It’s an unfortunate fact that evaluating security vendors today can often mean sifting through a sea of marketing hype to understand which products should be added to your short-list. Exclusive claims about what makes one product different from another may be vague, hard to find or even harder to believe.
That’s why when it comes to our endpoint security platform, McAfee believes the proof is in the product, and that your experience with it will clearly demonstrate the real-world benefits you’re looking for. However, we understand that being invited to your security discussion table depends on a few things like accuracy, trust and reputation. So, rather than make claims of my own, I’m writing this to share what others have had to say so that you don’t have to take our word for it.
First up, McAfee Endpoint Security (ENS) recently earned a Top Product Award from AV-TEST Institute and scored high detection rates against the threats thrown against it. But that’s not an isolated incident. In fact, here are three more findings by non-McAfee firms on the abilities of ENS to protect, provide value and reliability.
The NSS Labs Advanced Endpoint Protection (AEP) Test is one of the most exhaustive tests of advanced endpoint defenses in the industry. NSS gave McAfee ENS a Recommended product rating. According to NSS, this “…indicates that a product has performed well and deserves strong consideration. Only the top technical products earn a Recommended rating from NSS.” Coming from a test specifically designed to evaluate how effective a solution is at detecting advanced malware, that should tell you McAfee’s endpoint and machine learning defenses are ready for the best disguised malware you may face.
Return on investment matters, and you undoubtedly strive to get the best bang for your buck. SC Magazine conducted a product group test of endpoint security systems, awarding McAfee ENS a 5 out of 5-star rating, as well as “Best Buy” in the side by side vendor comparison of products. Further, SC Magazine summarized their findings as, “Solid performance, straightforward operation and tight integration” with “no weakness found” during assessment.
Frost & Sullivan
Frost and Sullivan awarded McAfee with the 2017 Global Endpoint Security Growth Excellence Leadership Award, finding that “McAfee has seen high growth in 2016, at 17.7%, outpacing the overall market. All other top competitors either slipped or were essentially flat.” With ~40 total vendors in view, that not only means that McAfee is growing in a crowded market, but that your peers are continuing to choose to invest in McAfee ENS.
At McAfee, we are committed to being your security partner for the long haul. But we don’t want you to just take our word for it. Instead, listen to what others are saying and decide if you can afford to not see how McAfee ENS can help you stop more threats, see more in your environment, manage less and get the return your investment deserves.
