CloudGuard Dome9

Dome9 can be used to have visibility into cloud assets and security policies across all the virtual networks, regions, and accounts on AWS, Azure and GCP. It also provides continuous enforcement of regulatory compliance standards and security best practices, with the ability to auto-remediate misconfigurations. So Dome9 is well suited for companies using cloud providers that want to take control of their resources.

Before Trend Micro OfficeScan we used Symantec Endpoint Protection and although it was very easy to deploy and to update agents it couldn't find a virus if you pointed it out with a neon sign. We were always getting hit with different viruses but since we migrated to Trend we no longer have that problem. Trend has definitely been preventing those kind of outbreaks successfully.

Pros

CloudGuard Dome9

  • Minimal false positives if configured properly.
  • End to end visibility in real-time.
  • Multi platform monitoring.

Trend Micro Apex One

  • The product has two important aspects, centralized console and an agent which is typically installed on every machine. When the product is installed on a dedicated server then all computers can readily get updated while in the same network (provided the agent is installed on every machine). This helps the machine to avoid any kind of virus attacks.
  • Even if the machines are not in the same network where the console is being run it can directly get all updates from the Trend Micro server directly and the machine is still protected. Hence, it is not necessary that users have to visit the office or internal network to get the update, once the agent is installed on the machine then they can get the update from anywhere as long as the machine has access to the Internet.
  • Once the agent is installed on the machine the users can themselves do a full scan and even check the logs themselves.

Cons

CloudGuard Dome9

  • Needs to add features for an on-premise cloud.
  • Cost is a little high.

  • Threat Removal: we've encountered several times when Trend Micro will point out some kind of threat, but lacks the ability to handle the removal itself, and typically still requires some kind of manual intervention.
  • It's small, but I do wish you could rename the endpoint agent names after they're assigned in the system.
  • Greater view and visibility into some of the standard reports offered would be nice.

It is very easy to stick with a vendor year after year, and it is also easy to see the faults in a product and want to change. This is the first time I have renewed with an antiviurs provider as others have been less than ideal and caused issues where there were none before, so while it isn't perfect, it is the best of the bunch currently and I am hopeful that it will continue to improve in future versions.

Checkpoint support is great. They provide great SLAs and they comply with service times accordingly.

It has been difficult at sometimes, the support people at one point told me that they couldn't tell me information about OfficeScan because it was knowledge that was passed down from engineer to engineer. The issue was that if you used the msi for the install any further installs would require the msi to have the same exact name or else the install fails and corrupts the install. This information is not listed anywhere on trends website. Support kept trying to get me to use the exe for installs instead, but we use SCCM and msi's work better. We had to write a script to come up with a solution so that we could uninstall the software and install the new software. Trend did provide the technical expertise to help with the script and had us work with one of the developers in order to resolve that issue. So they did fix their screw up but it took a while and several complaints.

Alternatives Considered

CloudGuard Dome9

Most products have their pros and cons but Dome9 does everything Evident.io and Redlock can do and more. Evident was a good tool but merging the two products into one complicated things.

Trend Micro Apex One

I have evaluated several endpoint security products over the years, but Trend Micro consistently lands in the Gartner's magic quadrant of best companies in this space, reviews well, and, most tellingly, I have had great success with their products. Every iteration brings improvements in ease of use and advancements in protection

Return on Investment

CloudGuard Dome9

  • For production environments it is worth the investment.
  • Getting to know how many assets you have helps with cost savings.

Trend Micro Apex One

  • Increased employee efficiency is definitely one of the main reasons for using this product. A lot of valuable business hours can be saved by having this product as we all know that fixing virus issues involves more than technical expertise and takes a lot of time.
  • If the employee efficiency improves then any employee facing the customer will have a much better impact and will automatically improve customer service. Having a computer in good condition is going to have a better customer service and it will also help to meet deadlines.
  • The only negative impact I would say that it does affect other VPN agents (which is mandatory for certain client applications or accessing the client network) once the Trend Micro agent gets a version upgrade. On the other hand if the agents are not upgraded from time to time it may affect Trend Micro agents' functionality.
