McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) is the market-leading tool for centralized, enterprise-class, system security management - delivering a coordinated, proactive defense against malicious threats for the enterprise. Administrators can scan and assess for system vulnerabilities, keep protection up-to-date, configure and enforce protection policies, and generate detailed graphical reports on McAfee Security and select third-party solutions.

ePolicy Orchestrator - license + 1 Year Gold Business Support - 1 node is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Provides centralized virus signature and patch updates. Valuable Features:I like the following features:* Centralized virus signatures and patch updates.* Reports of signature update status.* HIP management and automatic product deployment.* Allows virus signatures and VirusScan Enterprise patch updates via McAfee agents installed on the user's PC.Before this solution, I had to do the following:* Set up daily virus signatures and product updates on each PC in the office. These are the configurable parameters in the McAfee VirusScan Enterprise application.* Perform regular spot checks on some PCs to make sure the virus signatures are being updated. As the number of PCs increases, I needed to find a solution to handle this task.With this solution, all I have to do is install the McAfee Agent on a PC. When the McAfee agent communicates with the ePO server, ePO checks if VirusScan Enterprise is installed on the PC.If it is not installed, it will start the deployment, patch updates, and virus signature updates. The ePO server is configured to send me a report of virus signature versions and VirusScan Enterprise patch levels of all connected PCs by email on a daily basis. This saves me a lot of my time, as I don’t have to check this information on all PCs manually. I end up with a beautiful report to show my auditor about how the anti-virus software is implemented.Improvements to My Organization:This solution reduced a lot of effort to check and confirm that all PCs are running the latest anti-virus signatures and patch levels. It also helps the IT admin to find the mapping between the logged-on user ID and the PC name which Windows AD doesn't provide.Room for Improvement:I would like to see the solution provide a function to roll back patch deployment and alert the administrator about which system is not supported per patch level. It should retain all previous patches in the system to support legacy systems, including the latest patch that was checked in the system.Use of Solution:We have been using this solution for over six years.Stability Issues:The system is quite stable and works as expected.Scalability Issues:There is no built-in or easy upgrade of the system. When I upgraded the system from a 32-bit version to a 64-bit version last year, I basically reinstalled the whole environment.Initial Setup:The initial setup is very straightforward. The IT administrator can install and setup basic functions of the system without a user manual.However, for some complicated functions like drive encryption, it is better to read the user manual before deployment.Cost and Licensing Advice:Make sure you understand the following:* The license terms and how they are applied to the user or device.* What products are covered.* The dates of the license period.* Whether or not the agreement will be automatically renewed with an increase in price.* Whether the price is different when running on a server or on other special devices.* The support SLA and if there are any additional charges if the problem is complicated. If you do this, you won’t be surprised when you call support.Other Advice:I would suggest the following:* Set up a test environment. Test all products you are going to deploy on all platforms you have before actual deployment.* The testing environment should be retained since new patches may impact some legacy systems.* Plan your implementation and application deployment. Write down all parameters you put into the system configuration. Link this with Windows AD for user authentication.* Prepare your SMTP server for an email setup alert.* If you are going to use it to manage McAfee VirusScan, make sure you set it with up-to-date virus signatures from McAfee, at least on a daily basis. This is not enabled by default.* Consult your IT vendor for best practices.Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from With it, I was able to make an MSS (Managed Security Service) solution. Valuable Features:* Centralized management* The scalability* The report engineImprovements to My Organization:I made an MSS (Managed Security Service) solution based on the ePO and McAfee Endpoint products.This was before all the vendors made it themselves, and when I researched the major vendors, this was the best product for the project.Room for Improvement:The fact that it uses MSSQL, and cannot be deployed on anything other than Windows, can be a problem. The system can get slow at times when you do big searches and reports.Use of Solution:I've been using it since 2007.Deployment Issues:We had some issues with deployments as this product was not made to be set up as an MSSP solution but we had a lot of help from McAfee, and fixed them all.Stability Issues:The problems with stability as never in the ePO but in the Operative system (Microsoft Windows) and the database server (Microsoft SQL).Scalability Issues:The scalability is very good.Customer Service:We were a McAfee EMEA Premier Managed Service Provider at the time, so we had no problems getting the support we needed.Technical Support:10/10.Previous Solutions:F-Secure, but their product did not scale, and there are so many more endpoint products, that the ePO can handle than F-Secures Central management system.Initial Setup:It was not the easiest projects I did, but with help from McAfee it was not that difficult.Implementation Team:We implemented it in-house.Cost and Licensing Advice:We were a managed service provider, so the licensing was not what most customers have. We report in what we use, and pay after.Other Solutions Considered:We looked at several options.Other Advice:If you use any McAfee endpoint solutions in the enterprise you need to use the ePO, as there are no other options.Disclaimer: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer:Partner, vendor and consulting.
