Trend Micro Deep Security Room for Improvement

Technical Director at a security firm with 1-10 employees

The main drawback is that it's complicated. With Trend Micro solutions, everything is complicated. Deep Security has its own management console, and every product in Trend Micro has its own management console. Everything is siloed. Now, they are trying now to connect everything inside the main control management or reporting console, however, it's still not a central management console. It makes for a lot of work when applying policies and security solutions.

The product isn't very user-friendly.

It's a bit old-fashioned in its design and approach.

While, for example, McAfee might have a new version every two months, Trend Micro might not release a new version for two years. While it's very stable, it could be a bit too long in-between versions.

It would be ideal if the solution communicated better with other security solutions from other brands. This is an issue. They need to open up their API or give access, or exchange information with other security products so that everything can communicate together, learn from each other, and block malicious threats better.

The risk is very complex. We need our tools to be more intelligent, more automated, more detectable. They could improve all of those aspects. I'd specifically like to see automation in terms of detection and auto mitigation.

The integration could be better. When we need to integrate a full console to manage endpoints and servers in the same place, we need to understand better how to deploy it so we don't need an agent or something else to deploy the solution to monitor everything.

The initial setup can be difficult.

It should have XDR and EDR integration. It would be nice if they can tie it up with an XDR or EDR.

Its price is also quite high. It is more expensive than other products for patching. So, it would be nice if they lower its price.

Pricing is on the expensive side and could be more affordable. The technical support for Trend Micro Deep Security also needs improvement.

One problem with this kind of  products is scaling. If you go on large sites you have to have an external database, which would increase the overall solution cost.

The solution offers many features aside from antimalware, lile Host FE and IDS/IPS, File integrity monitoring and so on, but if you use it to protect deliering agents on hosts you'd better verify the amount of host resources (ram)  utilized by DS agent itself.

There should be more tools to trace back. Some sort of module needs to be included to attach all the things. 

It should be more stable, and the traceback feature should be improved. There were cases when we got virtual analyzer or CMC errors. We got false-positive malware notifications, but we couldn't trace them. I raised a case with Trend Micro two or three times, but they couldn't resolve it. Their support should be improved in terms of technical abilities to troubleshoot complex issues. They should be more knowledgeable.

I am not sure about what could be improved. I don't look at the solution from this angle. Some other person from our team is managing that at the moment.

The solution could use more integration. I've heard that if we are going to deploy the XDR of some other solution, it'll not be integrated. It would be helpful if everything could come together.

Deep Security's biggest shortcoming is its reporting.

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.

We have had some issues when it drains some of the resources of the server. When that happens it slows down some of the processes and causes the CPU to run a little harder.

The biggest drawback with Trend Micro is even when it is connected to the server, it will show as offline.

Another issue is, if I want to suggest this solution to a customer, we won't get the pricing immediately, which is a major problem.

I would like to see cloud-based integration.

The cost is very high. it would be ideal if they would work on the pricing.

Technical support could be much better.

The product should be able to host a vulnerability scanner. Right now, we need to pay extra. It would be ideal if they could do a vulnerability scan of my endpoints.

I would like to see an EDR function for the servers, as that would be useful for us.

Detection and Response directly to the servers.

I would like to see a retroactive alert. If it had the capability of generating retroactive alerts it would be helpful.

While it is stable, it has room to improve.
