Cisco

Any business seeking to secure access to their corporate resources by adding that additional authentication layer. It's essential now - phishing scams are rampant and are generally unstoppable. Remote work is the norm and, whether it's hybrid or fully remote, it needs to be controlled. Cisco Secure Access by Duo is a simple, lightweight, and highly effective method of achieving what is quickly becoming "table-stakes" in the cyber security realm.

Trend Micro

Hypervisor based agentless security this product excels at. It provides thorough protection for your VM's. The web filtering product that comes with it also does a great job filtering out malicious websites from being accessed by users with a very user friendly prompt that they are going to a website which has been found to be malicious. This is particularly useful when it comes to VDI.

Pros

Cisco

  • It integrates very well with multiple products such as M365 and VMware
  • It allows for multiple security options including hardware tokens and a phone app
  • If users are locked out for whatever reason, it's easy to get them up and running again with the Duo admin dashboard

Trend Micro

  • It's easy to use the console.
  • It has a very similar look and feels to Deep Security Console.
  • It plugs into the Apex Central for easy management.

Cons

Cisco

  • If you need to integrate some legacy applications to Cisco Secure Access by Duo, it's not easy.
  • If you want to have more detailed information and reports, you need to pay more for the licensing. The basic option is not enough.
  • A constraint could be that each employee has to install it on their personal smartphone, which some don't like. But, there is an alternative using SMS, although sometimes it takes too long to receive the message.

Trend Micro

  • Trend Micro has very little room for improvement. I am using version 9.6 at this time and it is extremely reliable. Some of the upgrades were not completely intuitive, but in those cases Deep Security support came through with documentation that covered all the bases.

    There are a lot of competing solutions on the market; however, Duo "just works", and there is little to no learning curve for the new members to be acclimated to it. As long as that continues I see it as the preferred option moving forward

    Usability

    Cisco

    I believe this is one of the most popular methods of authentication and it works for us. I haven’t had any issues since I set up my account and I have been able to use it even abroad during business trips. Overall a great experience and I would recommend it to someone looking to protect clients' sensitive data

    Reliability and Availability

    Cisco

    In the last 5+ years we've been using Duo, there may have been 1 outage that impacted us. We do receive periodic notifications of issues but, for the most part, they impact carriers or functionality that we either don't use, or do not care about.

    Support Rating

    Cisco

    Most of my support has come from the pre-sales side, as I haven't done much with post-sales support. The engineer was helpful, though it would have been even better if he had more production experience. Hopefully the backing by Cisco will give Duo support the deep bench that one would expect out of Cisco.

    Trend Micro

    Trend Micro's support is pretty decent, we have had issues in the past and they have been fairly responsive to us and our complaints. Depending on how severe the issue was. Any ticket that had a high priority was handled very shortly especially when we contacted our account rep even if it was after hours, we were still able to get support within a short time period.

    Implementation Rating

    Cisco

    Implementation of Cisco Secure Access by Duo was easy and intuitive. Integration of third party applications via API interface was painless. ON the few occasions that I needed to work with support to troubleshoot an issue, I have been satisfied with the level of support that was provided. All in all, the implementation process was better than many other products.

    Alternatives Considered

    Cisco

    I think that Duo is better than SecureAuth because the interface is better. I like the usability better and I like the design and functionality better. I wasn't involved in the selection process and initially didn't want to make the switch because I had heard some complaints about Duo but now that I have used it for a couple of years I would definitely say it is better than what I was using.

    Trend Micro

    We selected trend micro to take the AV scans and filtering out of the hands of the Windows and Linux vm's we have deployed and move it to the hypervisor level. This has led us to be able to deploy only a single DSVA per host and can protect all VM"s that are on that hosts. This has allowed for more time being spent on other priority security tasks.

    Return on Investment

    Cisco

    • Duo Security has been a positive ROI in that it has prevented unwarranted access to confidential information.
    • Duo Security has been a positive ROI in that it keeps me informed of what's going on with my devices.
    • Duo Security has been a negative ROI in that it costs money that I'm not sure is well spent all of the time.

    Trend Micro

    • 100% positive ROI. Without Deep Security we would have to leverage and endpoint protection management solution like Sophos or SEPM (Symantec). Although both are good products, from a cost perspective it would have hit us much harder. Trend Micro Deep Security scales very nicely.
    • Since Deep Security actually has zero (or at least unnoticeable) resource footprint on monitored VMs, it is a huge cost benefit for us. As previously mentioned, actual antivirus clients installed on each virtual machine (VM) would have significantly affected performance. This would have cost us much more additionally in paying for additional resources to allocate over VMs in the VMware environment. Deep Security is almost completely unintrusive from a resource perspective.
    • Also, from a layered security perspective, it helps us meet our goals; and since the price of Trend Micro Deep Security quite reasonable, it is that much easier to get approval for this specific internal layer of security.
