Advanced all-in-one endpoint security

What is our primary use case?

We use Trend Micro to build our entire, CI/CD pipeline. In short, I check out the code from my VCS (Version Control System), then I run a static code analysis as the first job in the pipeline. From that point onward, I can do multiple scans in multiple environments. For example, I can have the code checkout from my Dev environment, run the static code analysis, then I can do a folder scan. I perform the scan in my Dev environment, in the integration environment, and in the UAP environment. These are the multiple scans that you can run and enter on your application. All the static code analysis… more »

Pros and Cons

  • The initial setup was very straightforward.
  • They should include easy-to-use connectors to make it easier to connect to SIEM.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend Trend Micro to other potential users. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Trend Micro a rating of eight.

Gives us a good view of what's happening on the network and it's now easier for us to correct and to troubleshoot network issues

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case is for authentication, we check for authentication issues. The app allows users to only access the network according to the policy that the organization provides.

Pros and Cons

  • The solution is very scalable. Whenever we grew, it was just a matter of adding new licenses, so it's easy to grow.
  • In terms of improvements, I think the pricing model could be improved. They charge you by port, for every port that you have even if you're not using all of them.

What other advice do I have?

We use the on-premises version of the solution. For what we need, for how we're using the solution, it does what it's supposed to do. If I were to give advice about the product to others, I would say that it's a very simple solution and it does pretty much what it's supposed to do. We haven't had any problems with it for the past six or seven years. I would rate the solution at nine out of ten. It's helped us tremendously over the years in locating all kinds of issues that we had on the network. It also finds any issues very quickly. I would recommend it.

Easy to use with a convenient interface and helps us to quickly identify network issues

What is our primary use case?

We use this solution for network access control in an on-premises deployment. It handles our authentication, allowing users to access a network only according to the policy that the organization provides. The network is not open to everyone. Rather, it's only open to those who actually work for the network.

Pros and Cons

  • The minute people have issues on their network, we can see what is happening right away.
  • The licensing is based on a per-port price, even when you are not using all of the ports, and this is something that could be improved.

Cost and Licensing Advice

  • We pay for port licensing and support on a yearly basis, and it's not cheap.

What other advice do I have?

This is a simple solution and it does pretty much what it's supposed to do. We haven't had any problems with it for the past six years. This product is always running in the background. We get reports and alerts, and we deal with them accordingly. This product has helped us tremendously during the years in locating all kind of issues that we had on the network, very quickly, and I recommend it. Overall, it is a very good product and we are very happy with it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Good support, stability, and interconnection with the ecosystem

Pros and Cons

  • The interconnection with the ecosystem and the ability to force rules all over the network are the most important features.
  • It is a good product, but in order to use all of the functions of the product, you must have a good understanding of the product. You must know how to use and manage it. It is a little bit complicated to configure and manage. It must be simplified to make it easy to manage for end users. In the initial stage, we found ISE complicated for end users. It was not easy to manage it or to write authentication and authorization protocol. They must improve its management and make it easy for end users. The monitoring and reporting capabilities can be improved because end users want to quickly see what is happening in their network. There were some restrictions in working with other vendors. It should also have a better and easy integration with other vendors.

Cost and Licensing Advice

  • The price can be lower, especially for subscriptions. It should be a lot cheaper to have a wide range of customers. The price should be comparable to competitive products like Forescout or Fortinet FortiNAC. Forescout is cheaper for customers looking for a cloud solution.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Cisco ISE an eight out of ten.
