"Remarkable security increase"

What do you like best?

When you handle a large amount of data and relevant information it is important to have some security. Trend Micro makes sure you have secure data, informs you of possible failures, computer attacks or problems derived from the use of the software, all well stored and documented.

What do you dislike?

It is a software that has a lot of data, for that reason it is somewhat complex to learn to understand where each of the sections of the program is, but once you know how to handle it, everything is quite simple.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The security in a company is key and if you have a tool that can help you do not lose any kind of information and you can address any problem instantly, everything is better.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Trend Micro we have solved certain security problems related to data storage which has allowed us not to lose information and at the same time save resources.

"Trend Micro Protects computers from virus and gets rid of the bad"

What do you like best?

Trend Micro is a great virus protection software. It runs automatically at startup and periodically to find any threats. If something is found it will automatically get rid of the malicious file and deliver you a report. You have the option to keep the file if you know what it is and actually want to keep it. I also like that you have the ability to protect multiple devices with the one license.

What do you dislike?

They are extremely spammy and pushy for their other products. They are constantly reminding me that I'm not using their pass word protector, or their ransom ware backup protection etc. It is very annoying having to close, what are basically ads on software that I purchase.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to protect the computers in our office from viruses. We had a virus on on e of the computers but Trend Micro found it and was able to eliminate any threat posed by it.

What Data Security solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Trend Micro Officescan works well for a traditional AV and Endpoint Encryption package"

What do you like best?

Trend OfficeScan web portal and dashboard is great for managing the AV component, providing a way to monitor and deploy agent installations, view logging, manage exclusions and updates. The Endpoint Encryption management snap-in is simple and straight forward to use. For larger institutions interested in using multiple Trend products to manage many sites, the control manager dashboard is also useful.

What do you dislike?

Support is difficult and often takes a few days to get an answer to your issue. Wading through the sheer amount of documents on Trend's sites is very time consuming. Often times documents have not been updated and do not provide a clear solution. Many of the new features such as Web Reputation are still not developed enough to use effectively in a large complex enterprise environment. Often, Trend recommends upgrading their product versions or even moving to a more expensive product as the answer to a problem you are experiencing.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure you have a good reseller that can provide experienced engineer support as Trend directly can be slow and cumbersome. It is also good to have a knowledgeable support team for the implementation and rollout process.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Replace current traditional AntiVirus product. Provide endpoint encryption of PCs on our network. Provide management with good reporting for meeting updates and security audits.

"Trend Micro Review"

What do you like best?

I like Real-time scan, because don't need wait to schedule manual scan for block any malware/spyware on any workstation, aditionally Trend Micro offer a lot of tools for reforce protection. Vulnerability protection is one, help to find any vulnerability on SO, updates, etc. Admistration of this antivirus is so easy, because you have a Master Console to any operation that you want to do.

What do you dislike?

I don't like the consuption of resources on a machine when any scan is running, if a computer has low resources, it's hard work while any scan is running.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trend Micro it's so useful and effective against virus attack, i recommend it. If you don't have any domain or lan network, Trend Micro offer Worryfree versión, this version is for any personal computer, it's work directly to internet, receive updates automatically and work ever if you have a internet connection.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's very useful against ransomware and miners. It's very important have last update of antivirus running onn any agent, this reforce the protection.

"Best Virus protection I've ever had"

What do you like best?

It is so easy to install and use. It will automatically run scans so you don't have to worry, or you can do an on demand scan. I've been using this for the past 6 years and never had any problems. Other family members were using different software and I have converted them too. The interface boxes are easy to read and follow. It has colors that are also easil

What do you dislike?

Sometimes Windows security center (that came with my computer) does not recognize Trend Micro and shows the red shield and tells me my computer may be at risk because I don't have any protection. But then I wait about 5 minutes and it recognizes Trend Micro and all is fine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Not having a zillion pop ups all the time. Trend Micro manages those and will only ask you if you want to allow if it is something credible and related to the site you are on. I've saved so much time not having to "x" out or all the pop ups.

"I am an IT administrator of an insurance company and I have implemented the Trend Micro antivirus."

What do you like best?

The best thing about Trend Micro is that it maintains its database updated with the new malware and spyware. This model of antivirus keeps the endpoints updated and protected for new infections that may cause damage to the network.

What do you dislike?

I dislike about the Trend Micro is that to ensure greater protection for the endpoint. Also the waiting time to send a command from the management console to the endpoints is also much to notify about the infection of the endpoint of the administration console.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am an IT administrator of an insurance company and a team of the Trojan virus was infected, spreading on the network and reaching all the computers in the network. Implementing Trend Micro I could eliminate the infection in each of the endpoints and have the equipment healthy and without infection.

" Antivirus that removes malware and spyware that is updated with a cloud server. Endpoint protected"

What do you like best?

What I like most about Trend Micro is the data base that is updated with the server in the cloud, this server in the cloud maintains the updated malware database keeping the endpoints more protected.

Examine the tcp and udp ports that are open that alarm suspicious requests.

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that to implement more security they have to pay a few plugins to guarantee that protection. It takes time to update the infection alarm of the infected endpoins from the administrator console.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

In my company, it has solved the elimination of a Trojan virus that was deployed in my network, thanks to Trend Micro I managed to eliminate the virus in each of the infected computers, until today it has not been able to infect my network.

"Trend Micro - a value for protection"

What do you like best?

Trend allows us a lot of flexibility with manipulating back end features server side so as to get a good balance between what is secure and what is acceptable when it comes to performance degradation which we see with some anti-virus software. And of all the options we looked into, Trend came in with the best price per seat which given all the features and options was quite surprising.

What do you dislike?

On our older machines, there is still a performance hit when running scans on machines. There was one real0time feature we had to turn off completely as it was affecting several of our machines all the time. Granted we still have some machines that are a bit too old, we have seen other programs perform better while still doing a great job of protecting system resources.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trend is not shy when it comes to system resources. But don't let that get you down. Tweak the system till you find what is right for you.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Compared to our last solution, Trend has allowed us the ability to manage the software completely server side. This has freed up so many resources when it comes to updating and upgrading AV software. And as for viruses, we are pretty much on par with infections from previous programs so Trend is doing it's job quite nicely.

"Could be better"

What do you like best?

I like that they have made great strides in improving their console in recent years. The console is now easier to navigate and is more aesthetically appealing. I like the ease of updating the console and agents as well.

What do you dislike?

Doesn't seem to have the best hit detection as we've encountered many issues where trend was unable to detect the threat.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trend Micro is a decent product, but it still has miles to go. We've had many ransomware infections while using trend micro and have since switched to a product with better hit detection rate. Trend Micro is a decent option if you need to consider a more budget friendly option, but I wouldn't recommend it for businesses with sensitive data.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Antivirus Provider. The only reason any of my clients are still using Trend Micro is because it is more cost effective.

"The paid Antivirus and Malware option for home users!"

Includes Data protection for local files and parental control for child's, which lets control applications and web site that child use.

What do you dislike?

Need a good enough RAM memory for work without freeze your PC. The customization level is limited. Some files are detected as viruses and deleted without permission.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trend Micro offers additional protection against latest ramsomwares.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Have protection against latest malware. Since I'm using TrendMicro no infections have affected my PC.

"Trend Micro XG Review"

What do you like best?

Trend Micro has greatly improved their endpoint protection and overall suite with the current XG version.

What do you dislike?

Making some scanning exclusions is still a bit of a laborious process, but once this is setup it works as it should. I would like to see this be easier to review and edit (and transfer better during upgrades).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Trend Micro has greatly improved with the new XG version.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We needed to get better endpoint protection, we had Trend Micro but wanted to get behavior monitoring and other artificial intelligence type features for better protection. XG met this need.

"We have used Trend Micro for end point protection for the past few years. "

What do you like best?

Its a decent product for smaller companies, easy to manage from one management console.

What do you dislike?

Its not playing well with some of our Microsoft products. They are working on it, but their customer service dept is not the greatest at putting priority on some items. We had issues with Surfacebooks not going to sleep correctly and blue screening for months. We finally had to switch to MS Endpoint protection because leaving them in High Power settings was not an option.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We switched from Sophos, and we were keeping our devices more secure and detecting more once we switched to Trend Micro.

What do you like best?

The ease of deployment through our infrastructure and constant protection.

What do you dislike?

When applying certain version updates, there is a disruption in network connectivity.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When implementing, it's best to make note of all programs and directories that may be affected by the in depth scanning features and add those locations as exceptions.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The need for ever changing and adapting threat protection. Many threats have been caught and ended before any damage was realized.
