We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Guardicore Centra offers the best coverage specifically in backward compatibility with legacy operating systems.""The most valuable feature is the visibility of processes and connections.""From day one, you get threat intelligence. It will immediately block active threats, which has been useful.""The real bonus is the fact that we can secure applications, all the way down to the individual services, on each host. It's actually more granular security than we can get out of a traditional firewall.""I found the solution to be stable.""We like the centralized management of the firewalls. Until we installed Guardicore Centra, we managed all our firewalls individually, so making changes was complicated, difficult, and time-consuming."

More Guardicore Centra Pros →

"Signatures are frequently updated.""It's easy to use and the interface is simple.""In addition to providing our clients a view of what's happening in their data centers, it also does virtual patching in the data center. It enhances the security in the data center big time.""We've found stability to be great so far.""One of the most valuable features is that it's a firewall-based solution. We just open the required reports to the server—to server communication—and that's how we use Deep Security.""Support and threat prevention are the most valuable features of this solution.""We find that their technical support team is always accessible and willing to assist.""It serves its purpose and works well."

Cons
"The maps could go a bit faster. They are useful but slightly slow.""Sometimes, the speed needs improvement, especially when it comes to the generation of maps, where it can be a bit slow.""The long-term management of the security policies could be improved with some kind of automation platform, something like Chef or Puppet or Ansible, to help you manage the policies after day-one... to then manage the policies and changes to those policies, going forward, through some type of automation process is not turning out to be really easy.""Customers would want to see the cost improved.""Supports become difficult when it's for a big organization. For a small organization, medium organization, it still makes sense, however, for a big organization, it makes life difficult.""In our version, when using the terminal server, we cannot exclude user tasks for each session."

More Guardicore Centra Cons →

"What this product lacks at this stage is the ability to have automated workbooks to do the response. At this stage, the response is more manual, and it is not automated. If there is a response functionality in Deep Security, similar to what we have in EDR these days, to automatically respond to some of the threats, it would be cool. So, we'd like to have an automated response. There should be a response functionality.""Trend Micro is scalable if you have the budget for it.""The risk is very complex. We need our tools to be more intelligent, more automated, more detectable.""We have had some issues when it drains some of the resources of the server.""Pricing is on the expensive side and could be more affordable. The technical support for Trend Micro Deep Security also needs improvement.""We'd like to see extended capacity in the on-premises versions.""I would like to see better pricing. The pricing could be lower.""The cost is very high."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Trend Micro Deep Security stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its robust data and loss prevention feature and its patch management, which saves users money. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:

    One PeerSpot reviewer, a Senior Security Advisor at a healthcare company, writes, “DLP, Data Loss Prevention, and the complexity of how we manage the console and how this client, or this tool, will notify us when there is something going wrong within the server and endpoint, is good.”

    Nadeem S., CEO at Haniya Technologies, notes of the solution, “Patch management is most valuable. The major selling point of Deep Security is that it is based on the cloud. Deep Security is for the servers and databases of data centers, and generally, for patch management, you have to shut down the machines, and then you have to restart them. So, they need shutdown time, which is a cost.”
