You don't have to worry about a patch not being there in the software
Pros and Cons
  • "Deep Security provides us with a lot of reassurance about security threats. You don't have to worry about a patch not being there in the software. You're confident that all the patches and vulnerabilities are taken care of."
  • "I think more work could be done on Deep Security's ability to handle dynamic threat scenarios."

What is our primary use case?

We are using Deep Security specifically for virtual patching of the virtual disks. The average customer for this is typically a government agency, and they're employing it on critical servers and services. It is usually on a database server, especially a purpose-built aggregation server. Unlike a web server or something like that, these servers aren't generally publicly connected. We have about 20 Deep Security customers, including most of the bigger banks. 

How has it helped my organization?

Deep Security provides us with a lot of reassurance about security threats. You don't have to worry about a patch not being there in the software. You're confident that all the patches and vulnerabilities are taken care of.

What needs improvement?

I think more work could be done on Deep Security's ability to handle dynamic threat scenarios. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using Trend Micro Deep Security for the last three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Deep Security is a highly stable product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Deep Security is scalable. 

How was the initial setup?

Setting up Deep Security isn't that complicated. The entire process takes 90 days, including a proof of concept to demo the product in the customer's environment and show them what it can do. Typically, it takes about 90 days to close a deal. We have 15 members on our team.

What about the implementation team?

We have different people to handle the implementation. Our technical team gets involved at that point then we finalize the scope and document whatever the customer wants for this solution.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Deep Security isn't expensive for what it does. Our customers understand what the product is doing, so they are always willing to pay for that. In India, the price isn't an issue with this product actually because the competing Symantec product is much more expensive than Trend Micro. The pricing isn't that cheap, but every customer will ask for a discount regardless of the price you quote.

What other advice do I have?

I rate Trend Micro Deep Security nine out of 10. I recommend Deep Security to all our customers for server security. We sell quite a few security solutions, and we offer two products for server security: Trend Micro and Symantec. Since Symantec isn't really focusing on this area, we are primarily suggesting Trend Micro Deep Security.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
