We're systems integrators. We're using the latest version of the solution right now. Overall, I would rate the solution at an eight out of ten. We've been mostly happy with the product and its capabilities. I'd recommend the solution to other users and companies.

Trend Micro Apex One is a good product, with the inclusion of more features. Some projects will involve the implementation of the solution and others will be upgraded versions from OfficeScan to Trend Micro Apex One or Apex Central. Our control manager has switched to Apex Central. Sometimes a small company will be involved and at other times the implementations. The solution is both cloud-based and on-premises. We have around 20 customers using the solution. I rate trend Micro Apex One as an eight out of ten.

The product is very good. It's stable, and if you are not looking for a cloud based proxy then you should go for Trend Micro. The pricing is very good, but Cloud proxy pricing is very high. I would rate Trend Micro Apex One a nine out of ten.

On a scale of one to ten, I would rate Trend Micro Apex One at nine. If you are looking for a data solution along with the end point, this would be an option to consider. Also, Trend Micro Apex One has DLP options.

We are resellers of Trend Micro. We're using the latest version of the solution. I'm not sure of the exact version number. We use various deployment models, including on-premises and cloud. In general, I would rate the solution nine out of ten. Our customers, for the most part, have been quite happy with the solution and its level of security.

This product is easy to use, doesn't consume too much in terms of resources, and has automatic scanning. Because of these features, I recommend it to other users. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

We are just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with the organization. In general, I would rate the solution at a seven out of ten. It's okay. We've mostly been happy with it. This product basically a traditional antivirus system. Similar to McAfee and Symantec, Trend Micro, is based on traditional antiviruses. They have made improvements on some things, however, at the enterprise level, we know that these days we need a second layer of protection, specifically for malware. That is why we are using two solutions - Trend Micro plus Cisco AMP. AMP is specific to malware protection. Trend Micro handles the traditional antivirus side. It's very difficult to trust just one solution these days. We need to make sure we cover all the protection layers. Trend Micro claims that basically, Apex One is an enterprise level solution. We have been using last five years, and, so far, we haven't experienced any problems. Therefore, it's safe to say that we can recommend a product like this to other mid-level or small enterprises.

I would recommend this solution. Apex One has to make some changes to the scanning process. That's a negative point, but on the other hand, we get good support that responds almost immediately to our requests. I would rate Trend Micro Apex One a seven out of ten.

I would definitely recommend Trend Micro, especially if they have a low budget. If they have a larger budget then I could suggest Sophos, which is also a very good product. It is all dependant on the customer's budget. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would recommend Apex One, probably the upgraded version. Maybe the XDR will meet today's needs, i.e. the XDR upgraded version. I would give Trend Micro Apex One 7 out of 10.

We're just a customer. We don't have any professional relationship with the company. We're using the latest version of the solution. Apex One is the best solution for endpoint security due to its many wonderful features, and fast data protection. On a scale from one to ten, I'd rate the solution at a ten.

We're quite familiar and regularly work with Trend Micro products. The solution is endpoint protection bundled with a couple of more features, with basically a lot of DLT application filtering, et cetera. We are a system integrator. We offer tech support and help our customers. We sell Trend Micro licenses to companies. I'd recommend the solution. It's very nice. We've supplied it to many clients with very good results. We haven't received any complaints at all and our agents are satisfied with the solution. Overall, I'd rank it nine out of ten.

We're just a customer. We don't have a business relationship with Trend Micro. We're using the latest version of the solution. OfficeScan offers basic anti-virus security, but if you're looking for more advanced security features, you really need to look at more sophisticated and modern services. I'd rate the solution five out of ten.

As a current user of Trend Micro, I would recommend it, it does the job. It works fine and usually stops different virus attempts. The management is really good, you can see everything on the dashboard. If someone downloads some kind of infected file or some malicious file, we can see it and it usually gets blocked automatically. I would rate Apex One an eight out of ten. In the next release, I would like to have the ability that if something happens, then we have a record of what exactly has occurred on the station, how it started and how it evolved and eventually, in case something bad happened, something malicious gets through and it wasn't recognized in the signatures and the station got infected so that we can later come and analyze and investigate it and see what exactly happened and learn from it actually for the next time.

It seems like there is a disconnect between the Trend Micro Team and Microsoft. Microsoft is constantly pushing updates and builds, and there is a delay from the Trend side when updates are released. As of now when we start reading that Microsoft's finalizing a build we start scrambling and reading Trend Micro blogs trying to figure out if it supports it. Every solution has its problems, but It is a solid product. The question becomes one of whether there is value in it for the dollar. Does it do what it needs you to do? Has it been working and providing defense? The answer is yes on those fronts. They have tried very hard to develop a cohesive product that supports us, that offers the ability to scan for viruses and scan for malware. It doesn't hit everything, but the more that I look at different solutions, no solution is a panacea and a magic bullet, and anyone who tells you there is, is not being truthful. The question becomes, is the manual work outweighing the value that the solution adds? For us, we can handle the updates but when we started to really have a lot of issues where users, especially now in COVID times, working remotely have their machines crippled by the scans and taking a long time, chewing up a lot of CPU, users become frustrated with the solution. We spent the last two months chasing ghosts and trying to troubleshoot. It was frustrating. As the leader of our IT organization, I need to ensure the stability and usability of all systems for all users. I still think that the product has value, but I've just experienced a lot of pain points to realize that it's becoming cyclical for us, and the pain points are becoming too much. We are in POCs with other products but we may find that they are just as bad and may stick with Trend. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would rate Trend Micro a ten out of ten. The only thing that I would be presumptuous enough to tell Trend Micro they need to improve is that they need to have a bold interface for a C level executive so that they can look at a screen and see the holistic picture of what the state is giving them.

I think Apex One is a very good product for end-users. Some of the features you get here are also available in Symantec which is a better package, but Apex One is a better end solution. Symantec and McAfee both have good solutions but Apex One and Symantec are the best for end point security. For singular implementation, Apex One management is great for application control and deactivation. I would rate this solution a 10 out of 10.

As a salesman, I encourage the customer to buy the full suite for the engines. The biggest lesson I learned is about the EPR solution. Some people say it's easier to use this type of product. This is the next generation of antivirus technology. I would rate this solution as seven and a half out of ten. We work with a lot of solutions, like Carbon Black, McAfee, Symantec, etc. There are features and benefits to each of these.

This is a product that I recommend, as it does exactly what it's supposed to do. The biggest lesson that I have learned from using this solution is that it's difficult to always be one step ahead of the guys that are introducing malware, but I think that Trend Micro is doing a good job. They are always updating their product. Overall, I am very happy with this solution, and it does what is advertised. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I think the solution is a classic, really basic software. It's good enough. The footprint on the computer is not very heavy, it's not heavy at all and I think it has a good signature database. From holistic function, it gives a good enough performance. I think they have additional features but not for the new products with new licenses and all the new protections like the EDL or remediation. I think they added new features, but you have to pay, they did not just scale the basic product but I think it's about marketing and income. I would recommend this product for endpoint protection. Not for the hosted email security and other services on the emails. I would rate this solution at seven our of 10.

Focus on the productivity gains that you will have. We don't have a lot of security experts in the company. We are a very small team, so we need to be very productive with the products that we have. I would rate this product at nine out of ten. It has a lot of the capabilities that we need.
