Email, web browser, and data storage areas will fulfill the security of mobile devices very well. It provides multiple methods of data filtering and classification to ensure important data can be well protected. Unfortunately, it does not support you to make regex-based definitions. for this reason, you need to work on the rules a lot. Another disadvantage is that it cannot monitor Linux systems.

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.

Trend Micro
  • 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

  • Policy tweaking and customizations can be very complex and take a lot of effort and time.
  • API integration is difficult and requires specialized support. Finding an experienced professional can be difficult.

  • Only thing I would have to say that's negative is the reporting aspect. Basic reporting is good but still lacks some details. This is a problem with many of the software vendors I have encountered in the past as well. Reporting is still much better than most.

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.

Symantec DLP works good for our very simple and low complexity use cases and I would highly recommend it for them. However, I can't speak to highly complex or advanced use cases that might arise in certain industries like finance. I would recommend that if you are seeking an Enterprise DLP solution that you absolutely must explore this product as one of the leaders in the space - not doing so would be negligent in my opinion.

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.

Symantec DLP is the best. Put it in a head to head competition and it will win. However it can be a bit more expensive than other products so don't compare on price, compare on quality of product.

For me, Trend Micro Apex One with its low performance is the best option at the time to buy a solution like this, with its flexibility through on-premises or saas deployment options you can choose the option that best fix to you, has an advanced automated threat detection and response against an ever-growing variety of threats.

  • Found data that should have been protected or moved to a different location
  • Helped us understand what type of data is leaving the environment

  • Since the product is a full suite of protection rolled into a single product, we've seen ROI through cost reduction and simplified management. And while we haven't measured performance, one would logically assume that systems will perform better with a single product installed vs several.
