Trend Micro Deep Security Review

The file integrity and log inspection are game-changing features for us

What is our primary use case?

We use Trend Micro Deep Security as a Service on AWS through Marketplace and Trend Micro Deep Security on-prem to meet our virtualization security & compliance requirements.

How has it helped my organization?

Besides increasing more visibility into data insight, I strongly believe we have not only reduced potential risks while gaining significant performance but also our investment costs was rightly justified.

What is most valuable?

The file integrity and log inspection are game-changing features for us. Provides deep data insights while meeting compliance requirements.

What needs improvement?

I'm currently evaluating TippingPoint. Trend Micro is still working on building tight integration with TippingPoint being a recent acquisition from a few years ago. So, a Tipping Point integration with Deep Security, having one single pane of glass dashboard, would provide us a simple use case.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

well, we have had no hiccups. It's an awesome product.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It's as scaled as it can get.

How is customer service and technical support?

The technical support is very helpful and geographically dispersed.

What was our ROI?

We have saved a 50% ROI for the on-premise product. It gave us significant improvement overall in productivity, costs, and efficiency.

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

With AWS, we get single, consolidated billing. This is the beauty of it; its ease of use.

Purchasing on AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime.

We do pay-as-you-go pricing, which is good for us. We are working with Trend Micro to see if we can have something similar for on-premise.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

After our move to virtualization was complete and its security woes were becoming evident, we began our search for a new security solution that could protect both its physical and virtual environments. After a three-month proof of concept with solutions from Gartner and Forrester’s top five security vendors, we selected Trend Micro Deep Security. “We wanted a solution that provided seamless integration with VMware vCenter management software and true agentless deployment. Deep Security for VMware was the only solution that really worked.

What other advice do I have?

We started with it on-premise, and now we also have it on the cloud to protect our cloud workloads. The cloud has all the features and functionality turned on by default, which makes it very easy and simple to use. This hosted solution means there's no set up or configuration and they handle all the product and kernel updates for us.

Which version of this solution are you currently using?
