Pros: Easy to install and set up. Has provided the protection that it is supposed to. I have only had one issue with the software in the 2 years of using it and that was when I was setting it up initially. Their team at the support number was there for me and walked me through making sure that the software was working properly. Been using it ever since almost 2 1/2 years. Glad to have found this product and been able to make it a part of the protection I use on a regular basis. I would recommend to colleagues to use as part of their Anti-Spam/Virus protection.

Cons: Hard to find any thing that I didn't like about this software. It has provided all the protection that I have needed along with the other products that I use. Over all its a great product

Overall: It has helped cut down on the spam that I would normally get in my email. I dont have as much issues as I did with other products that slowed down my computer in the past. I look forward to more products that TrendMicro will be developing in the futuer and trying them out.

The configuration ,control and management is almost bulletproof and easy to manage.
Great value for money.

Overall: easy implementation and great filter for the spam we had received.
As a pre-exchange mail server process to block the massive spam messages it does a great job.

Pros: What I like the most of this anti virus is that it runs automatically at startup and periodically to find any threats, if something is found it will automatically get rid of the malicious file and deliver you a report. It performs great for smaller companies, easy to manage from one management console. Overall, Trend micro gives you a lot of opportunity like folder shield, password manager, vault.

Cons: I guess that the downside of this antivirus, is that it does not come with too many features, malware, anti spam and antivirus. I usually have problem with Trend Micro whenever installing a new program, it lags and slows down my PC, then it makes you authorize the installation with several pop ups.

Overall: This antivirus is great for small companies, it does the job.

Pros: Nothing questionable gets through, ever! Hands down, Trend is easily the best at keeping our system safe. I never have to worry about people clicking malicious links, because the messages that contain them are nonexistent.

Cons: Everything has been smooth sailing. What's not to like about software that minimizes risk so well?

Pros: What I like most about this product is it's real-time alerting of issues on people's pcs. It allows me as an administrator to get live alerts if an outbreak is occurring and allows me to keep a handle on new forms of spyware that might be spreading.

Cons: What I like the least is its lack of identifying the machine with an issue. This creates additional work that shouldn't be necessary in requiring you to log onto their web-based console and run a report in order to identify the specific machine. Far too many hoops to jump through for basic information.

Overall: Get some peace of mind with regards to safe-guarding our environment.

Pros: I like that I can add what mail is unwanted to the list so it knows what to filter and can be continuously updated.

Cons: The user interface is not user friendly in the least. It is hard to learn where things are and even when you do some of the things I use the most often are multiple steps to get to instead of just a click away to make it more expedient.

Pros: Smart Protection provides multiple layers of protection. Installation is simple and almost automatic. Allows administrators and users to add unwanted emails to the "block list" Alert system is nice.

Cons: Our major drawback would be the amount of resources the program uses, really slows pc down. It doesn't have the most friendly user interface.

Pros: -Permit security in the management and storage of data, facilitating the mobility of information, between terminals, mobiles, usb and emails.
-Bylink to the system by filtering the incoming mail.
-It is easy to install and its execution is automatic.
-I see it ideal as a corporate application, for its multiple levels of protection in the handling of information.

Cons: -I see it as a corporate program.
- Tends to require the use of more resources making the PC slow
- False positives are presented, meriting manual use.

Overall: In my case I did not like it, put my pc slow

Pros: I've managed a Smart Protection install at a client site for several years. In general, it does a decent job of filtering out the junk and passing legitimate messages.

Cons: The user interface is not well designed in my opinion. Often requiring additional steps to access info that should be at ones fingertips.

Just because it's technical/ professional software should not preclude a degree of user friendliness.

Overall: Does the job, but not the best user interface.

uses a ton of resorces on your PC. Not worth it.
