We performed a comparison between Carbon Black CB Defense and Trend Micro Deep Security based on our users’ reviews in four categories. After reading the collected data, you can find our conclusion below.
Comparison Results: Carbon Black CB Defense comes out on top in this comparison. This solution has ongoing monitoring that will immediately notify users of any anomalous behavior. Many users feel Trend Micro Deep Security can be very draining on resources, which can be problematic.
"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."
"The most valuable features of the solution we have enabled in our organization are its anti-malware capabilities, applications, web reputation, and integrity monitoring."
"We find that their technical support team is always accessible and willing to assist."
"The tool provides information on server activities and hosts."
"It can scale well."
"There's useful monitoring on offer."
"Support and threat prevention are the most valuable features of this solution."
"I switched to Trend Micro because of its good marketing techniques."
"CB Defense is more powerful, and you can take more actions than others. Its security features and signatures are constantly updated, so it is more effective than other security solutions."
"Carbon Black has very good market strategies."
"The solution is very useful and easy to handle. You don't need much intervention with this product."
"The solution has a very nice API on the back end for remoting into a system and executing scripts or utilizing self automation."
"It is a very complete platform."
"The new feature that we're deploying, the new offering from Carbon Black, is MDR, which stands for manage, detect, and response. It's the most valuable feature because Carbon Black will be continuously checking the logs, and they will be advising us on how to improve some of the policies as well as review the logs. If there are any nefarious agents or things happening on the end points, they will know."
"One of the most valuable features is that it will block vulnerable sites. If there was a connection between one of our devices to a known malware site, it will block it."
"I found the offline scanning to be particularly useful."
"Trend Micro Deep Security security and scalability could be improved."
"I would like to see XDR features and endpoint sensor become available."
"The tool needs to improve its subscription."
"I've not worked with CrowdStrike Falcon, but one of our customers also had CrowdStrike Falcon on some of the devices. I was only supporting Trend Micro. They had a ransomware attack, but Trend Micro didn't detect that particular ransomware attack, whereas CrowdStrike did."
"The solution should focus on the EDR part and probably have an integrated data leak prevention module."
"The initial setup was complex."
"A minor issue in Trend Micro Deep Security is that once the tool is upgraded, it shows some machines as offline or not reported while showing a recent update as outdated. The tool has some server connection issues."
"We want to see improved authentication."
"What was rolled out to my company are mixed versions of Carbon Black CB Defense, so what I'd like to see in the next release is more synchronization, where it can detect the endpoint that's running an old version and suggest updates."
"Right now, Carbon Black CB Defense doesn't support cloud computing and Kubernetes."
"The solution has to mature on container security and a lot of cloud environment security."
"The device control feature could also be compatible with the user’s profile as well."
"CB Defense could be more compatible with Linux, and its cloud provision could be improved."
"They will most likely need to create or include a feature that checks the network."
"The support is poor."
"It is difficult to extract reports for ongoing scans"

Trend Micro Deep Security Features
Trend Micro Deep Security has many valuable key features. Some of the most useful ones include:
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.”
Modernize Your Endpoint Protection
Legacy approaches to prevention leave organizations exposed. Get an endpoint platform that helps you strengthen and unify security tools to see more and stop more.
Simplify Your Security Stack
By simplifying endpoint security capabilities with one endpoint agent and console, you can minimize downtime, respond to incidents and return critical CPU cycles back to the business.
Operate with Confidence
Modern environments are increasingly complex. VMware Carbon Black is a single source of truth that provides an intuitive understanding of your environment, enabling confident decisions.
