Trendmicro IDF

Anyone used Intrusion Detection Firewall from Trendmicro in client workstations
Is this efficient - Can prevent zero day exploits ?
Is it overkilling worstations ( makes it slow)?
What about Buffer overflow  attacks?
Can it prevent know exploits?
What about network backdoors?
can it prevent worms spreading across client machines?

I need independant opinions from experts. Pl comment

Trend Micro consistently has one of the lower records for customer satisfaction, support, and efficacy: http://www.customerservicescoreboard.com/Trend+Micro
And why would you want to pay for IPS when one of the best is public domain (free): http://www.snort.org/

Hi Breadtaan,
 Thanks for your detailed analysis. I was going through NSS Labs report , ENDPOINT PROTECTION PRODUCTS 2010 GROUP TEST SUMMARY.  Trendmicro is slected as no 1 in Endpoint Security. But was behind from Mcafee in these aereas.
1. Memory only Payloads  -  Mcafee-100%, Trendmicro -0%
2. Payload Encording - Mcafee - 60% , Tredmicro -40%

How you feel the result?
Also Mcafee representative told me No buffer overflow attack prevention is avilable for trendmicro and the datasheet of trendmicro also not mentioning anything about it.  what do u think
 
I think trendmicro will be more memory and cpu starving as compared to Mcafee and Kaspersky (some other reports.

I got the Endpoint suite including IDF with same expense of my license this year. I installed it. I can find almost 200-300 Deep inspection rules and almost 12 rules for 2012.  how u rate this? very less ,  as compared to other products?

about application control - i can  black list some applications. but are u thinking, it is effective? what about whitelisting programs like lumension do. pl comment
