Trend Micro is well suited solution for SMBs, for companies with less than 100 endpoints or devices to protect. Where there is no internal infrastructure to host endpoint protection platforms and there are not internal IT teams or security focused personnel. Not suitable for businesses with more than 200 devices as you can lose effectiveness on the protection intended to be provided.
Read full review Pros FortiMail earned a AAA rating from SE Labs and a 99.78%. Spam Capture Rate from Virus Bulletin. The solution has an effective Antivirus module that protects from malicious URLs and attachments. It also has an integrated cloud sandbox or can be integrated with a physical or virtual appliance (with an additional license). Read full review Very granular control settings like URL filter/block and separate policies for servers vs workstations. Password restrictions on exiting and uninstalling the software on the end points. You can force updates and scans at any time from admin console. Read full review Cons I would like to see a recommended config come base on the box. I would like to see a secure score type area. Read full review Apple Mac client is troublesome. Policies are clunky and difficult to understand. Security Agent dashboard lacks tools needed to remediate problems. Technical support was less than satisfactory. Read full review Usability
Installation and administration tools are fantastic. I found the endpoint policies to be not intuitive and clunky. The endpoint client was difficult to disable when trying to troubleshoot Apple issues and I often had to uninstall and then reinstall which was very time-consuming. Reporting is very useful and I was impressed with the reports I received.

I have used Barracuda Email Security in the past and FortiMail is just as effective. The interface is easy to use, and the configuration is straightforward in setting it up to work with
. Spam detection is effective, as well as malware/viruses and phishing attempts. Overall it is a great service.

Avast was clunky, difficult to roll out, missed loads of malware on machines, and required that we purchase a separate license to install AV on our servers. Trend Micro could not have been any different. You just contact their sales department and get a demo, or even ask for a trial of sorts to test policy creations and client installation. You'll be obsessed with the whole process and the admin dashboard you have access to.
