Trend Micro Mobile Security

Overall Satisfaction with Trend Micro Mobile Security for Enterprises

Mobile Security was used in the defence of the mobile endpoint across the company. The core features like traditional MDM is a must have today. Trend add to this Application Reputation services and app management. These components are essential in securing the end point and further enabling the concept of "Zero Trust" networks. Given today's remote workforce the emphasis on having this level of control over the mobile endpoint cannot be downplayed. The only issue, or rather complexity, is setting up the IOS interfaces, and this complexity is largely due to the way in which Apple has structured its API's
  • Management Interfaces
  • Reporting
  • Compliance management
  • Exception Management
  • Apple integration
  • Ease of deployment
  • Compliance Management
  • Loss control
  • Application blacklisting
  • ROI was near instantaneous - Long story but I will share one on one
  • Allowed for easy adoption of remote working
Its not on the individual points where Trend stands out but the holistic security you get. In general other vendors buy solutions, sell then integrate into their product portfolio. This approach which leads to installation and interoperability issues as well as adding more screens to watch for the real life view on the endpoint. Trend, in my experience, do not launch immature applications to market and when it comes out it works well with the other Trend applications in the estate, it plays nice with others also.

Mobile Security can be applied to any business and is relevant to all business today. The importance of controlling the endpoint cannot be emphasised enough especially with the rapid growth of PII laws across the globe. Looking at the applications, Mobile Security not the only reason for the rating but rather the total ecosystem you get with Trend. It must be noted that I was a fiercely opposed to Trend but once I seen this Ecosystem in place and working, with the people backing it, I am happy to say that I was wrong. Buzzwords / bragging rights aside I would rather have Trend defending my infrastructure than any other brand.
