It was really simple and easy to deploy and it looks like I am ditching my current protection since I am not with them 100% satisfy. This gives me more power and control over network and make admin life way easier and of course it cost less what I would pay for my old solution. Also I should probably mention if you are using web-hosted Trend Micro Worry Free solution, GFI agent will have trouble uninstall this client. I had both on premises and hosted by Dell. GFI agent was able to uninstall Trend Micro in the process but had issue to uninstall the hosted Trend Micro agents. I have found the best way to remove the hosted Trend Micro agents by using this freeware – – once the Trend Micro Worry Free hosted agent is uninstall you will be able to add GFI agent without problem. Other antivirus solutions were uninstalled without issues during the process – tested with McAfee, MS Security Essentials and Symantec. I was surprised how much items the Trend Micro Worry Free solution missed on my network. Whatever was found during the initial scan on network was easy to remove from the GFI Cloud console which saved me a lot of time :-). You can register for FREE 30 days Trials of GFI Cloud here.
