Overall Satisfaction with Trend Micro

Trend Micro was our antivirus protection up until the last few months. It was installed on all machines (servers and computers) protecting against viruses, malware, trojans, etc.
  • Light in memory
  • Easy to deploy
  • Easy to configure
  • Virus protection is not very good with trend micro. It's in the bottom of the list in antiviruses comparison tests like: https://www.av-comparatives.org/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/avc_sum_201612_en.pdf
  • Sometime, for no obvious reason the trend micro client stops working and is difficult to uninstall
  • A positive impact is that you don't need to allocate more memory or CPU than already exists on the servers
  • The cost is totally affordable compared to other equivalent antivirus tools
  • The protection is really transparent for users
I chose Trend Micro instead of Kaspersky Work Space Security because of the price.
However, Kaspersky is in a much better place in the AntiVirus comparatives like: https://www.av-comparatives.org
It doesn't load the machines too much so it is good if you don't have very powerful servers or computers. The recent version is maybe better, but the one before is definitely too old and not working as good as you would expect from a professional antivirus.
