I used it in my previous company, and it was basically used for security levels. My company was into the implementation of projects, and we used to implement security solutions. Along with Trend Micro, we used to implement these devices. We had several customers of this solution.

We use this solution for protection from ransomware. We use artificial intelligence in the Trend Micro engine for deep security inspection. It allows us to analyze the data and threats.

Our primary use case is for endpoint protection and email as well as web protection. We are stacking our servers once a month and vulnerabilities are checked every day. I'm a senior director in the company and we're a customer of Trend.

We are using two products. One is Trend Mirco Deep Security, and the other is Apex One. We use Apex One for endpoint protection and Deep Security for server protection. It scans for intrusion prevention and the forensics of any threats.

It's used as a part of our managed solutions. Security is key for them because we have seen a lot of ransomware in the past. We do very well on security side, whether it is application network or a host-based security. This is one of the offerings that we offer to our customer by default. As it is a core part of our managed services, it integrates with other products which revolve around patch management. We have our own IP which takes care of the actual patch management that we leverage. We also have a lot of monitoring platforms with a single, integrate dashboard taking the data from the APIs.

It's for security: IDS, IPS, intrusion detection, and securing our perimeter in general. E.g., OWASP rules.

Trend Micro Deep Security offers a lot of features. It guarantees security for your data center, cloud, and containers - all with a unified and comprehensive SaaS solution and without compromising performance. This solution also offers powerful protection, an all-in-one workload security option (which may help with eliminating the cost of deploying multiple point solutions), and flexible integration. It also has a good intrusion prevention feature that I like. And the solution is very secure. If patch management is important for your organization, this solution will definitely cater to your needs. The fact that it is based on the cloud is a huge selling point for Deep Security. One unique thing about it is that Deep Security has a “pay-for-what-you-use” pricing model, which is hard to come by. However, one thing I strongly dislike is that it does not support versions prior to Windows 7. I found the most valuable feature of Trend Micro Apex One to be its reporting. I can report back and provide information on an item’s quarantine status. I also like the management console and find it to be very useful. The dashboard is clear and helpful too; It displays what has been logged or still needs to be logged, it shows different malicious links that people have tried to access, reveals if someone was trying to connect something to the computer, and provides many other insights. Trend Micro Apex One has good flexibility, too. It is very easy to use and also easy to deploy. A big disappointment for me, though, is that Trend Micro Apex One consumes a lot of CPU time. To clarify, when scanning, the CPU usage stays too high. Also, the on-premise setup can be daunting. Moreover, the stability is not fantastic. There have been times where it has crippled several users’ machines, requiring the application to be uninstalled and then reinstalled in order to fix the issues. Conclusion: Overall both solutions are solid, but Trend Micro Deep Security takes the win for me. Its features were more aligned with what I needed.

I can't say one way or the other for sure, but, having experienced Trend Micro in the past from an endpoint perspective they have their own way of doing things. They certainly didn't catch everything that even basic a/v like SEP did and they had a very convoluted setup and system configuration. Not sure on how falcon compares but cost wise Trend would probably be the cheap option while Falcon would be more expensive but easier to work in/with.

Having previously run a penetration testing company, I can tell you that the general feedback I have from professional hackers is that CrowdStrike Falcon does make their job a lot more difficult.  The "traditional" players in the endpoint protection market e.g. Trend Micro, Symantec and McAfee they generally view as trivial to bypass.
