For Microsoft shops that are doing custom development on the Microsoft cloud platform in Office 365 and Azure, the Rencore toolset is an absolute must, especially if you are involved in converting farm solutions to cloud, or just moving into cloud development for the first time.

The product works great when I have to quarantine a mass email attack. Seems students are always susceptible to email base attacks, we are no different, but when one occurs on a mass email basis I can very easy and quickly block/quarantine those emails either by sender, domain, or URL or all three if need be. We have played with the data loss component but it is hard to do anything but "monitor" because there are way too many false positives. Such as with SSNs and bank routing numbers, but I figure any solution provider would experience the same problem. However, even with monitor and notification only, it is useful to make our users aware they are potentially sending personal information.
Read full review Pros Unique expert knowledge of their target platforms. Not many companies have such a unique position in their target market. Their employees have a deep understanding of SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure and also regularly advise Microsoft on these matters. Community involvement and contribution to open source projects. Key employees at Rencore are considered thought leaders in their area of expertise and contribute to high profile Microsoft open source initiatives. Rencore's unique position when it comes to code quality analysis in the SharePoint space sets it apart. There's really no alternative. Platform governance is another Rencore strength. No other product provides the insights into your SharePoint Online environment with full auditing of not only configuration changes but also who changed which code where and when. Again no alternatives exist. Read full review Provides a great summarized view of all user end-points via a web-based portal Provides a simple but strong policy format for users and computers Fairly light agent installed on end-points Read full review Cons Rencore's product line is of course still a bit of a niche: SharePoint code quality is not something every organization on the planet is concerned with - although Rencore does much more than that. We feel Rencore's marketing efforts are mainly targeted at technologists. There's a lot of other potential, especially for their platform governance product. Read full review Wish I could customize the notification emails more, like including html code to personalize and highlight messages that my end users see when an item is flagged. Wish there was a word or phrase component to block/flag emails as I can with files, links, senders and domains. Automation of the BEC list would be a plus...such as pulling in an OU or security group so that I do not have to do manually perform this task. We have multiple TrendMicro products. Thus it would be nice to have one dash board to "see" or login at least for ApexOne, CAS, etc. Read full review Likelihood to Renew
Only a 9 if the product become completely unaffordable. Covid-19 has adversely affected Higher Ed budgets, if that should happen I would lobby hard to find cuts elsewhere...TrendMicro CAS is a necessary tool for any business to have!

Once Cloud App Security is up and running there is no need to do anything additional. The program will begin protecting all the environment immediately and end results are proven. All notifications come to the administrator email to verify and mitigate a response and check the endpoint if necessary. Very easy to use.

Trend Micro Cloud App Security’s support has been highly competent and thorough when we have needed their assistance. Their support has been quickly dispatched, both through telephone and Email, while answer our questions and providing the “inside baseball” answers we have wanted when discussing the why and how of certain issues. When it came to implementation, their support sat through us as we deployed agents and took us on an adventure few implementations have.

I don't know of any products that compete in the space and if there were any, they would not stand a chance against Rencore. Behind any good product is a team of highly skilled individuals, who all have the same goal, who are passionate what they do and lastly, are in it for the betterment of where they started; As Developers themselves. You can't buy that

To date we had only utilized Symantec Small Business Suite for all of our antivirus needs. We had only moved to the cloud environment during the summer of 2020, and after doing so I'm not sure that I would ever change from Trend Micro Cloud App Security. The cost and features all are a great fit for the small to medium-sized business such as ours.
Read full review Return on Investment The clear impact was the amount of time saved code reviewing or going through lines of code marked off by other tools that are not relevant. We cannot put a number on it since the project started off with the tool in place but based on the rules applied it could be as high as 20% of the project time. Read full review CAS gives us peace of mind knowing the file systems we rely on in the cloud are protected the same way they would be if they were sitting in our office. This leads to a reduced risk of downtime that could otherwise limit us from being able to properly support our customers. Read full review ScreenShots Rencore Code (SPCAF) Screenshots
