Trend Micro is a global cybersecurity company that offers solutions for consumers, businesses, and governments. It protects against various cyber threats, including malware, ransomware, and phishing. Its products are powered by AI and machine learning technologies, making them effective against both known and unknown threats
Trend Micro’s products are easy to use and provide multi-device protection. Depending on the product, they offer security capabilities from basic antivirus protection to advanced threat protection and privacy protection. Trend Micro has a strong reputation for its customer support and continues to be a trusted name in the cybersecurity industry.
McAfee is another major player in the cybersecurity industry. Founded in 1987, the company offers a wide range of products that protect against malware, ransomware, spyware, and other online threats. McAfee’s products focus on protecting devices, personal information, and privacy. Recently, McAfee merged with FireEye to create Trellix, which provides enterprise cybersecurity solutions.
This is part of a series of articles about endpoint security.
Trellix was born out of a merger between two cybersecurity companies, McAfee Enterprise and FireEye. The new company provides an extended detection and response (XDR) solution with advanced threat detection, end-to-end threat intelligence and security orchestration capabilities.
The Trellix platform is a suite of tools that protect organizations against cyber threats. It supports the cyber security lifecycle, from threat intelligence and detection to incident response and recovery.
Trend Micro uses AI and machine learning technologies to detect and neutralize threats. It also protects against ransomware, which is a growing threat.
McAfee offers protection against a wide range of threats. However, some users have reported that it occasionally fails to detect threats.
Trend Micro is known to be resource-intensive, which means it can slow down your system, particularly if you’re running other resource-intensive applications.
McAfee, on the other hand, is not reported to significantly impact system performance.
Trend Micro offers a clean user interface which is easy to use and accessible for non-technical users.
McAfee provides a dashboard that gives users an overview of their system’s security status at a glance, makes it possible to schedule scans, check for updates, and manage quarantined files. However, some users may find McAfee’s interface a bit cluttered compared to Trend Micro.
Trend Micro’s offers a range of cloud-based security services, including advanced threat protection, cloud-based email gateway, and data loss prevention. It provides a central, cloud-based management platform known as Deep Security.
McAfee’s cloud security solution, MVISION Cloud, offers a suite of cloud-native security services, including data protection, threat prevention, and compliance management.
Trend Micro offers several package tiers, each with a different set of features, allowing users to choose the package that best fits their needs.
McAfee, on the other hand, is known for its premium pricing, and in many cases can be more expensive than Trend Micro. However, it covers multiple devices under a single subscription, which can reduce the overall cost.

The Trend Micro Vision One platform is an extended detection and response (XDR) solution that allows organizations to detect and respond to threats more effectively. It collects and correlates data from various sources, including endpoints, email, servers, cloud workloads, and networks, to provide a broad picture of potential threats. This improves threat detection and response and also helps identify security gaps in an IT environment.
Another key feature of the Vision One platform is its use of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning algorithms to automate threat detection. AI technology also enables it to predict future threats based on historical data, allowing organizations to proactively strengthen their security measures.
Trellix XDR, like Trend Micro’s Vision One, is an integrated security solution that collects and analyzes data from various sources, including endpoints, networks, and cloud environments.
A focus of the Trellix solution is its ability to integrate with other security solutions. This means businesses can leverage their existing security investments, and improve the XDR system’s ability to correlate data from various sources across the IT environment.
Trellix XDR also provides threat intelligence capabilities to enhance threat detection and response. This allows it to identify a wide range of known threats, and orchestrate the response to their specific tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs).
In addition to its XDR solution, Trellix also offers the Endpoint Security Suite, which includes a next-generation antivirus, a firewall, and a host intrusion prevention system. The Endpoint Security Suite provides a centralized management console, which allows IT teams to manage all endpoints from a single location.
The Endpoint Security Suite also provides advanced threat detection capabilities, using AI and machine learning to identify and respond to unknown or evasive threats.
