Trend Micro tackles Web threats with enterprise desktop security solution

Latest version of Trend Micro OfficeScan extends protection beyond the corporate network with innovative Web reputation technology

Trend Micro Incorporated, a leader in network antivirus and content security software and services, has launched the latest edition of its corporate desktop security solution, Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.0. The first corporate solution to have the new Web reputation technology blended into its functionality, OfficeScan 8.0 is also the first corporate desktop security solution to be awarded Microsoft Windows Vista certification. The solution provides greater protection against Web threats through the addition of Web Security Rating and enhanced anti-spyware technology.

OfficeScan 8.0 provides businesses a powerful layer of protection against multiple types of attack, including file-based malware, spyware, viruses, rootkits and network attacks such as hacking attempts.  With mobile users often connecting to the Internet from remote connections such as airports, hotels and cafs, OfficeScan 8.0 extends protection beyond the corporate network with innovative Web threat protection technology.  The new technology protects endpoints from accessing malware-related websites, based upon a dynamic evaluation of individual DNS-domain reputation.

In addition to the new technology enhancements, Trend Micro is also pleased to announce that Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.0 has recently been awarded Microsoft Vista certification.  This reaffirms Trend Micros commitment to delivering security protection and peace of mind to businesses that are planning the roll-out of Microsofts new operating system. 

Enterprise endpoints are increasingly mobile, and laptops are now outnumbering desktops at many major corporations.  It is clear that increasing mobility combined with the evolving sophistication of Web threats requires enterprises to look differently at how their security is enforced, said Max Cheng, general manager, Trend Micro enterprise business operations.  Trend Micro OfficeScan extends security beyond the network, providing dynamic, innovative protection against Web threats.

Deploying security can be a significant effort for enterprises, especially when it comes to deployment across a large number of clients.  In recognition of this, Trend Micro has further enhanced OfficeScan with an extensible plug-in architecture.  This architecture enables the easy deployment of additional new functionality to installed clients, without an administrator needing to redistribute or reinstall OfficeScan.  This enables enterprises to efficiently maintain endpoint security with the most current OfficeScan technology available.

OfficeScan is a key component of the Trend Micro Enterprise Protection Strategy that weaves OfficeScan together with other solutions, providing a deeply layered defense against complex attacks involving both email and the Web.  Trend Micro Enterprise Protection Strategy provides a comprehensive, multi-layered approach to network security. This strategy is one of the most effective security solution frameworks available for todays enterprise, protecting every network endpoint from the gateway to the desktop. All products in the Enterprise Protection Strategy are centrally managed through Trend Micro Control Manager for a coordinated defense against network and web threats.

Availability and Pricing

Upgrade and trial versions of Trend Micro OfficeScan 8.0 are available in English language from June 12th.  For 100 users, pricing is 15.87 per user.
