McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense is good for large organizations where there are many users and profiles that all need the same permissions and settings. It provides a fairly seamless experience and is effective at stopping threats with little input from end-users. That being said, if there are many profiles or individuals that all need specific settings, McAfee Advanced Threat Defense does work, just cumbersome.

Trend Micro Deep Security for the Hybrid Cloud

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.

Trend Micro Deep Security for the Hybrid Cloud

  • 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.

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense 7.0
Based on 1 answer
Personally, I have only called our internal IT team about needing changes to permissions, not McAfee itself, but our IT team can make the changes though it seems to take them longer than I would think it needs to take. As someone who administers a different program, with different permissions, I would feel they should be able to make the exceptions faster and easier.

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.

Alternatives Considered

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

Zscaler Internet Access is lighter and easier to customize for smaller groups than McAfee Advanced Threat Defense. Personally, I have never called customer support for either product but I have heard that Zscaler has better, more responsive customer service as well. Both have an automatic launch upon boot-up feature and both block threats well.

Trend Micro Deep Security for the Hybrid Cloud

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

McAfee Advanced Threat Defense

  • Automatically turning on means no time used starting it or forgotten turn ons.
  • Ease of profile setting saves time.

Trend Micro Deep Security for the Hybrid Cloud

  • 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.
