Most suited if you have a very strong presence in AWS. It is natively available as an add on service. You can also track the costs overtime based on usage. There is still a lot of improvement on the features and the user interface that can be implemented over time

The product works great when I have to quarantine a mass email attack. Seems students are always susceptible to email base attacks, we are no different, but when one occurs on a mass email basis I can very easy and quickly block/quarantine those emails either by sender, domain, or URL or all three if need be. We have played with the data loss component but it is hard to do anything but "monitor" because there are way too many false positives. Such as with SSNs and bank routing numbers, but I figure any solution provider would experience the same problem. However, even with monitor and notification only, it is useful to make our users aware they are potentially sending personal information.
Read full review Pros Protect any application against the most common attacks. Provides better visibility of web traffic. It allows us to control the traffic in different ways in which it is enabled or blocked through the implementation of security rules developed personally according to our needs. It is able to block common attacks such as SQL code injection. It allows defining specific rules for applications, thus increasing web security as they are developed. Read full review Provides a great summarized view of all user end-points via a web-based portal Provides a simple but strong policy format for users and computers Fairly light agent installed on end-points Read full review Cons AWS WAF is a bit costly if used for single applications. they should provide attack-wise protection, like if my certain type of application is vulnerable to DDOS then I should be able to buy WAF, especially for that attack. CLI tool to test in offline mode if possible. Read full review Wish I could customize the notification emails more, like including html code to personalize and highlight messages that my end users see when an item is flagged. Wish there was a word or phrase component to block/flag emails as I can with files, links, senders and domains. Automation of the BEC list would be a plus...such as pulling in an OU or security group so that I do not have to do manually perform this task. We have multiple TrendMicro products. Thus it would be nice to have one dash board to "see" or login at least for ApexOne, CAS, etc. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Only a 9 if the product become completely unaffordable. Covid-19 has adversely affected Higher Ed budgets, if that should happen I would lobby hard to find cuts elsewhere...TrendMicro CAS is a necessary tool for any business to have!

The product is highly scalable. It is easy to configure the rules and thereby helps us to mitigate many vulnerabilities. The interface and programming of the firewall provisions were easy to setup. Amazon clearly spent a lot of time figuring this out and perfecting it. It allows users to do customized configurations based on their needs. It provides protection against a number of security issues like XSS, SQL injection, etc. I would definitely recommend this for protecting your infra as you scale, since this basically protects and filters all requests hitting your application server.

Once Cloud App Security is up and running there is no need to do anything additional. The program will begin protecting all the environment immediately and end results are proven. All notifications come to the administrator email to verify and mitigate a response and check the endpoint if necessary. Very easy to use.

Trend Micro Cloud App Security’s support has been highly competent and thorough when we have needed their assistance. Their support has been quickly dispatched, both through telephone and Email, while answer our questions and providing the “inside baseball” answers we have wanted when discussing the why and how of certain issues. When it came to implementation, their support sat through us as we deployed agents and took us on an adventure few implementations have.

Unlike these other AWS tools, WAF provides real-time traffic control, rules that can be customized according to the needs of the user, and is based on an implementation in the cloud which avoids the use of memory on computers as well as an account with a very affordable cost for any user or company

To date we had only utilized Symantec Small Business Suite for all of our antivirus needs. We had only moved to the cloud environment during the summer of 2020, and after doing so I'm not sure that I would ever change from Trend Micro Cloud App Security. The cost and features all are a great fit for the small to medium-sized business such as ours.
Read full review Return on Investment The overall security of the web application increased effectively after deploying AWS WAF No negative impacts were seen in the business The developers were more confident in the overall security model of the web application being developed and it was easy to integrate WAF into the existing system as the application was also using AWS platform Read full review CAS gives us peace of mind knowing the file systems we rely on in the cloud are protected the same way they would be if they were sitting in our office. This leads to a reduced risk of downtime that could otherwise limit us from being able to properly support our customers. Read full review ScreenShots
