Machine learning that looks at your activity and provides your devices protection from viruses

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is machine learning, which automatically monitors the activity on the machine."
  • "The system should generate reports when an attack has been stopped, contained, or removed."

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case of this solution is to prevent our end-users from getting hacked, or getting viruses, ransomware, or any type of malware. The firewall protects information from coming in and the antivirus protects the machine.

How has it helped my organization?

We haven't been hit by any ransomware.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is machine learning, which automatically monitors the activity on the machine.

What needs improvement?

The system should generate reports when an attack has been stopped, contained, or removed. As it is now, if an attack is halted then we don't know about it unless we search through the logs.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Trend Micro VirusWall for six or seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This solution is stable. It's left a good impression with our company.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I would assume that It's a scalable solution. We have been using it for many years and have not needed to change.

All of our machines and servers have this antivirus on them.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is fine.

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

Previously, we have not used another solution. We have been using this one for many years.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was pretty straightforward and it took a day or two to deploy.

We only require a couple of hours, by a couple of people, to maintain this solution.

What about the implementation team?

We didn't use an integrator, consultant, or vendor. We did it ourselves.

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

I don't remember the exact pricing, but I think that it is approximately $10.00 per user.

There are no costs in addition to the licensing fees.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is that you monitor your logs and your reports to see what the system has been doing. Otherwise, you may not know that an attack even happened.

It has just about everything we need at a good value.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises

Secure, reliable, is easy to install and has good technical support

Pros and Cons

  • "The security of Trend Micro Web Security is good."
  • "I would like to see better scalability and better performance."

What is our primary use case?

Trend Micro Web Security is used for web filtering. It protects the environment from web threats and malicious sites.

What is most valuable?

The security of Trend Micro Web Security is good.

What needs improvement?

The ease of use depends on the blacklisting of the sites. Some of the authorized sites have been blacklisted, which requires a request to unblock the site. The process of authorizing sited needs to improve.

The performance could be better. Sometimes the browser hangs. it is possible that the integration in coordination with the browser causes that issue.

I would like to see better scalability and better performance. 

For how long have I used the solution?

We implemented Trend Micro Web Security for a client approximately six months ago. I have been acquainted with it for a couple of months.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

Trend Micro Web Security is a stable product, but the web browsers will hang at times.

We have two large company customers.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Trend Micro Web Security is a scalable product but it could be better. I would rate the scalability a seven out of ten.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is okay, we don't have any issues with the technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The installation is straightforward. It doesn't require a lot.

We have one engineer to implement and upgrade this solution in the client's environment. With the support of their local engineer that they have on-premises, we implement the solution.

What about the implementation team?

We implement products for our clients.

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend this solution to others. If, however, they are using a different niche and using the other security levels then they don't need to use this product.

I would rate Trend Micro Web Security and eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

On-premises
