Trend Micro Endpoint Security Customers Save With 58 Percent Reduction in Infections, According to Independent Research Firm's ROI Calculator

An Endpoint Security ROI calculator shows that Trend Micro customers save with fewer infections, security and server consolidation, and simplified implementation and management.

CUPERTINO, Calif., Nov. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Few companies worldwide have a meaningful way to measure the value of IT and IT projects before making an investment. A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Trend Micro created a Return on Investment (ROI) calculator to give businesses the information they need to make an educated purchasing decision. The calculator shows companies how much they can save using a Trend Micro(TM) Endpoint Security solution.

The calculator begins by providing a decision tree to help the user select the most appropriate Trend Micro Endpoint Security solution for their environment, resulting in an ROI analysis of either OfficeScan(TM) Client-Server Suite or Endpoint Security Platform. The tool displays the applicable costs and benefits, and provides an ROI report based on inputs provided by the user. Here are some example benefits included in the calculator that customers experience using Trend Micro Endpoint Security.

Trend Micro's flagship endpoint security solution, OfficeScan Client-Server Suite, protects desktops, laptops, servers, and smartphones -- on and off the network -- with a blend of world-class anti-malware and in-the-cloud protection through the Trend Micro(TM) Smart Protection Network(TM) infrastructure.

  • Customers realize a 30 percent reduction in initial infections in client devices, and a 40 percent reduction in the spread of infections, yielding an overall 58 percent infection reduction.
  • The reduction in infections results in savings in IT support efficiency, in the level of IT expertise required to clean computers, and in employee productivity.
  • The reduction in infections also helps to block data-stealing malware. When combined with Trend Micro(TM) LeakProof(TM), customers get optimal savings for data loss prevention.

The savings shown in the calculator for OfficeScan Client-Server Suite are demonstrated in real-world customer deployments. Using Web Reputation alone, the University of Windsor stopped a significant number of online infections. "During our one-month campus-wide test, there were more than 15,000 URLs blocked by the Web Reputation technology in Trend Micro OfficeScan," said Kelvin Hwang, computing consultant, IT services, University of Windsor. "This resulted in a 41 percent reduction in the number of infected machines, and an 81 percent reduction in the number of detected malware."

"This in-the-cloud protection is a better solution for controlling what comes onto our network -- we can prevent problems before they happen," said Tommy Van Roye, IT manager, infrastructure, Picanol Group.

"Trend Micro OfficeScan handles it all -- it saves us a significant amount of time and effort," said Ron Potee, IT manager, Huntsville City Schools Huntsville, Alabama.

Trend Micro also offers Endpoint Security Platform for better visibility and control of endpoint security and systems management. A unique single-agent, single-server, single-console approach centrally secures endpoints, reducing complexity and risk while saving costs.

  • Achieves the same overall 58 percent reduction in infections, with endpoint protection powered by the Smart Protection Network.
  • Provides savings for server consolidation and implementation with one management server that scales up to 250,000 endpoints and manages all security and systems management modules in an integrated console.
  • Saves on staff remediation time with a 98 percent first-pass patch installation rate with the Patch Management Module.
  • Saves an estimated $35 per PC per year with the Power Management Module.
  • Prevents data breaches by blocking external threats from data-stealing malware and stopping internal threats with the Data Loss Prevention Module.

The ROI from Trend Micro Endpoint Security Platform is particularly significant for large, geographically dispersed organizations. "For managing remote locations, Endpoint Security Platform is a great solution. It easily scales to several thousand machines, without any increase in the number of support people or any expansion of the infrastructure. We have one master console, and we can manage all sites and reports in one location," said Michael Wilson, director of IT infrastructure, Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine, Inc. "I go to one place for everything -- this cuts down on foot traffic and results in saved time and costs."


The Trend Micro Endpoint Security ROI calculator uses Forrester's Total Economic Impact (TEI) methodology, which includes elements of cost, benefit, risk, and future flexibility options. Forrester analysts who specialize in enterprise security and financial analysis collaborated to create this tool. They applied Forrester research and interviewed Trend Micro customers to define and quantify the financial benefits achieved when implementing Trend Micro Endpoint Security solutions. The tool integrates financial modeling techniques to arrive at a risk-adjusted ROI, evaluating the benefits as well as the costs associated with the deployment while also allowing for the uncertainty of these estimates.

Customized ROI Results for Trend Micro Endpoint Security

The final ROI result will vary based on the data specific to the user's endpoint environment. The tool provides a detailed report showing costs, benefits, and the total ROI, including an up to 3-year risk-adjusted, profit-loss analysis. Customers can schedule a session with a Trend Micro sales representative to step through the tool and determine the best Trend Micro Endpoint Security solution for their business and see the ROI of implementing that solution.

Trend Micro Endpoint Security is part of Trend Micro(TM) Enterprise Security -- a tightly integrated offering of content security products, services and solutions which is powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network infrastructure.
