Likelihood to Recommend

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

What I like the most is the fact that McAfee tries many different approaches to hit its target, securing the customers. Its feature-rich reporting, dashboarding, and deployment tools are very useful. The engine is just smarter and the processor performance is very much improved. Summary Centralized control of agents to prevent local users from overriding settings is very beneficial.

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.

Pros

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

  • Static malware scans for known bad processes and files works well and can be schedules on endpoints easily
  • Preventing users from accessing USB drives and other peripherals is easily configured. We can also allow users to access to USB drives with user codes for the times they need it for business reasons.
  • ePO provides access into our MSME software so that we're not managing many different products from different locations.
  • In recent years the console has gotten much easier to navigate even though there is a ton of information to be accessed.

Cons

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

  • Due to Microsoft Windows Updates, support and KB articles are a must.
  • Deployment tasks might need a lot of configurations before.
  • ePO upgrade requires a lot of preparation steps.

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.

Overall, McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator server is a great product that we have been using for years. Support for McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator can sometimes be confusing. We first have to determine whether the issue is actually the server, or if it is an issue with the product being managed.

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 ePolicy Orchestrator

We selected McAfee EPO partly because we were already using McAfee VSE, but mostly because there are very few other AV management packages out there that offer the same level of enterprise management tools. That's where it really shines - deployment and management of AV in a large organization of Windows servers and workstations.

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 ePolicy Orchestrator

  • Allows us to control threats which can mean less wide-spread virus issues
  • Allowed the service desk to make sure a computer is safe and up to date before adding it back to the domain. This saves the onsite team time because we can check on this remotely.
  • Using this product allows us to better manage all of the machines on and off the network.

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.
