Expert Insights

Trend Micro’s Endpoint Protection platform is a comprehensive security tool that’s suited to a large number of users. It has advanced threat protection capabilities, able to protect businesses from multiple malware and virus attacks. However, Gartner has reported some customers report ‘poor threat detection’ with this platform. It uses machine learning algorithms to scan and detect threats, with behaviour analysis and ransomware security to protect against spyware and advanced threats. The optional investigation tool Trend Micropoint Sensor is a good additional layer of threat detection and response for this platform, which offers a manged detection response informed by expert analysis. All of these threat detection platforms are fully automated helping to reduce the workload of IT departments.

The management console is fully featured, giving a detailed overview of connected Endpoints and security reporting. This platform allows admins to control policies and controls across all endpoints easily. The platform has great controls for mobile devices especially, allowing admin to control which apps mobile devices can download and stop mobile threats. This platform is not the easiest to use or deploy according to customers. Some have suggested it can be difficult to use. There is also no support for MacOS devices, which could leave companies with many employees on these devices with no protection method. However, there are flexible deployment options for companies looking for a mixture of an on-premise and cloud based Endpoint Protection.
