“Most of the customers choose Trend Micro for three pertinent reasons. The first one being, that customer wants to choose an organization that are keeping up to the pace of change in the threat landscape, and are ahead of providing those solutions to the customer. Apart from all other OEM’s who are there, Trend Micro is much ahead of launching their solutions for protecting the datacentre and the vulnerabilities which get exploited,” said Mr. Nilesh Jain, Country Manager (India and SAARC), Trend Micro. 
The second reason, is that most of the organizations are looking at a vendor who can protect their investments. Whatever investments you have made, the same security permissions should be seamlessly integrated and support you into that platform as well, something that none of the others provide. The Third aspect, particularly when Ransomware and targeted attack are catching up, Trend Micro does have a solution that not only works and integrates end-to-end for its own products, but can co-exists with every other solution that the customer is using, thereby enhancing their ROI made,” he further added. 
Trend Micro protects endpoints with XGen™ security, a blend of cross-generational threat defense techniques that intelligently applies the right technology at the right time, resulting in more effective and efficient protection against a full range of threats. Trend Micro is the first to infuse ‘high-fidelity’ machine learning into its approach – uniquely analyzing files both before execution and at runtime to block those with malicious intent and using ‘noise cancellation’ features, such as census checking and whitelisting, to reduce false positives.  
“Trend Micro’s XGen™ security has advanced our organization’s endpoint security tremendously,” said Ty Smallwood, infrastructure and security manager for Navicent Health. “We now have one vendor that offers the full breadth of protection with visibility across our business. Their 24/7 customer support has always made Trend Micro available and responsive to our questions around the solutions and general threat intelligence.” 
Trend Micro also protects server endpoints across the data center and cloud with XGen™ security, delivering optimized protection for workloads deployed on VMware, AWS and Microsoft Azure. Managed through a single connected dashboard with full visibility across physical, virtual and cloud, Trend Micro’s hybrid cloud security solution simplifies the deployment and management of security; speeds response to sophisticated attacks and accelerates compliance with key regulations such as PCI, HIPAA and others.
