Sean Owens - Forrester Senior TEI Consultant; Chris Sherman - Forrester Security Analyst
Organizations are seeing large increases in targeted attacks and advanced persistent threats (APTs). Often these advanced attacks involve multiple stages, spanning email, web, traditional endpoints, and corporate servers. Security professionals invest in security controls at each layer of the network stack to protect against these multi-faceted attacks. While multiple security point-products may be used, some prefer to purchase their solutions from a single vendor for better overall management and fewer gaps in security. Forrester, in a recent Total Economic Impact™ Study commissioned by Trend Micro, interviewed current Trend Micro customers, who identified reduced security-related issues and remediation time, faster security reporting tasks, consolidated vendor costs, improved end-user productivity, and overall a positive ROI since investing in and deploying a solution based on Trend Micro enterprise security products.
