We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The most valuable feature is that it works in the background so that the end-users are not aware of what is happening on the laptop.This product is a solid, all-in-one solution for enterprise data management.The most valuable features are the messaging features and shared folders.We can extend it to all of the critical endpoints and the servers, and we can ensure the confidentiality of the data.Their cloud features such as Cloud Endpoint security, ransomware modules, malware, and other modules are very effective.The encryption feature is very good.We use it for protecting accounts, which is its most valuable feature.It has reduced the number of incidents related to the loss of information.

Overall, I think that it's very interesting.The most valuable feature is the support for email.Endpoint can give you the full details about how the attacker moved into and through your system. That description shows you each and every step up to the cabinet-level.

Cons
I do not find the environment to be very user-friendly.The instability of the company and lack of presence in the Middle East is affecting product use.The program's disk encryption is not very friendly with Microsoft OS updates. We have a problem with updates failing unless we use a time-consuming work-around.If for example, a user forgets the endpoint key, they cannot access their data. We need a support team that is a single point of contact for the IT entity to be trained and to have documentation for troubleshooting and managing the solution.I think that they should improve the on-premises version to include the manageability and simplicity that is available on the cloud.The agent can be improved on the solution. Right now, we have an Endpoint Protection agent as well as an encryption agent and another for the DLVs and other services. We would prefer a single agent for the entire product.We would like some advanced security protection features.It's a bit difficult to get good support. Their response times are really bad.

In terms of what must be improved, I would say the support, the next feature, and the road map. I think all these must be improved, but the important thing to improve is the support.It would be great if this solution had support for file integrity monitoring.To improve Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption, the user interface could be somewhat more friendly. It is already friendly, but it can not be approached through to the exact issue and just to give you the full detail of each and every port graphically.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The cost of this solution is a little on the higher side.The pricing is fair but there is variability in our area that needs to be addressed.Depending on how many modules you will use (up to five) the licensing will be more expensive.They have two solutions for encryption including Symantec Endpoint Encryption and PGP Endpoint Encryption. With one PGP license, you can deploy the two solutions. The PGP license gives you two options.The licensing costs yearly are $5000.It can be expensive. However, if you plan to scale or are at a large enterprise company, this product could be what you need.
