Overall Satisfaction with Trend Micro Apex One Endpoint Security

We use Trend Micro Apex One Endpoint Security across our whole organization, providing malware protection for our desktops, laptops, mobile devices and servers. What's great about this product is it is a multi-layered product that is designed to detect and remedy a range of malware issues, including those in active memory. Because of this, I no longer have to deploy multiple products to protect one system--Apex One is a complete security solution, even providing disk encryption should I need it. Now I don't have to monitor multiple dashboards to review threat activity on my systems nor push multiple products to endpoints, but I can do this all from a single console and dashboard.
  • Centralized management: control all your users and see threat activity throughout your environment
  • Comprehensive security suite: I have been using Trend Micro products for nearly two decades and this is their most feature-packed security product ever
  • Minimal user impact: security solutions shouldn't disrupt work or annoy the user, just do their job in the background and only become apparent when warranted. Apex One accomplishes this beautifully.
  • Easy to use: it's an easy (and free) upgrade from OfficeScan, and even easier to deploy and use.
  • Inexpensive. Pricing is very competitive for what you get.
  • There has really not been anything about this product I haven't liked, believe it or not.
  • 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.

  • Norton Internet Security and McAfee Advanced Threat Defense
I have evaluated several endpoint security products over the years, but Trend Micro consistently lands in the Gartner's magic quadrant of best companies in this space, reviews well, and, most tellingly, I have had great success with their products. Every iteration brings improvements in ease of use and advancements in protection.
It's probably overkill for a really small office and it does take some skill to understand how to deploy and manage the product, so it's probably best implemented and managed by a consultant (if you have no on-premises IT) or an IT professional. Medium to large organizations will love this product and benefit most from the integration of solutions into a single product and the centralized management.
