What is most valuable?

Often the customers have requirements where we need to provide them with endpoint DLP (Data Loss Prevention) solutions. McAfee's DLP is a very good product. It gives you accessibility to either allow or block many preferences on a machine and does a good job of protecting against any data loss. This… more »

What needs improvement?

The improvement that I think most needs to be addressed is a claim from many customers that I receive all the time. They say that the product consumes too much RAM and CPU. It makes clones in the machine and that eats up resources. It makes the clone as long as it is running on the machine. The… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Because we deploy for clients, we work with a variety of solutions in order to meet their needs. While I am working mostly with McAfee solutions, I'm also very familiar with the broader classification of security solutions. I have worked with various PAM (Privileged Access Management) solutions. I… more »

What other advice do I have?

The advice I have for people considering this type of security solution is not to listen to what all the companies advertise. You can see bad reviews, maybe good reviews as well, but you need to use that information from the reviews as a starting point for your own observations and not just believe… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that everything is done on the server. When we send data to our clients, they cannot do anything that we do not allow.

What needs improvement?

Sometimes the server console is very slow, so the performance could be improved. The documentation is in need of improvement. Scalability needs to be improved because we have a lot of computers and it is affecting us. A lot of spam emails… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We were using Symantec Endpoint Protection prior to using ESET.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to have a good knowledge of what it is that you want to do. If all of the policies have been decided with respect to what you want to allow, and what you do not want to allow, then… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated many different solutions before settling on ESET.

What is most valuable?

Over the course of the time I have been using Trend Micro, I would say it is similar to Kaspersky. Overall, I think that it's very interesting, but I wasn't really impressed with the threat protection. For example the threat in the League of Legends for the Cloud.

What needs improvement?

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. I would like to see next-gen anti-virus included in the next release.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale of one to ten I would rate Trend Micro Endpoint Encryption a six. In Indonesia, with our client/our partner, I am hands-on with this solution. Trend Micro, Kaspersky, Symantec, they're all the same. They're really the same technical approach and signature base. It's totally the same for me.
