The proof is in the results.

Trend Micro OfficeScan recently ranked #1 in anti-malware tests by AV-Test, an independent IT research lab that certifies endpoint security solutions. See below for some of the results and all the details on OfficeScan's performance, usability, and protection as compared to other major vendors.

AV-Test: Widespread malware protection AV-Test: 0-day protection

Indusface proves Trend Micro offers a smaller footprint and higher performance.

The descriptions below highlight test cases and results from testing of physical clients.

Approach: Systems memory, HDD & CPU data are recorded after the installation of the endpoint target.

Tm Performance Chart2

Result: It was observed that Trend Micro OfficeScan 10.6 utilizes the lowest endpoint resource after AV installation on the endpoint system. This observation proves that endpoint resources are available for more end-user activity with OfficeScan 10.6, consuming 4-11% less memory than competitors' products.

Read why Indusface calls Trend Micro “Best”

Light & Lean: Lower infection rates by 62% and management costs by 40%

When compared to other solutions, OfficeScan gets the job done faster – up to 60% faster . Because OfficeScan leverages our cloud-based Smart Protection Network infrastructure, the bulk of signatures aren’t deployed to the endpoints, freeing up memory for your user’s applications.
Scanning is finished earlier, returning the resources to the user sooner and minimizing the impact security scans have on productivity.
Comparison test results consistently prove Trend Micro offers a smaller footprint and higher performance, and leads in overall protection against threats.
