Trend Micro Communication & Collaboration Security Provides Immediate, Easy-to-Use Protection

Thanks to Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, enterprise customers now benefit from faster email, instant messaging and collaboration systems protection.

CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Incorporated (TSE: 4704), a global leader in Internet content security, announced today a faster, more effective messaging security solution: Trend Micro Communication & Collaboration Security, powered by Trend Micro Smart Protection Network.

With Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, a cloud-client content security architecture delivering correlated, up-to-the-minute threat intelligence, customers get immediate protection across their Microsoft(TM) Exchange(TM), SharePoint(TM) and Office Communications Server (OCS) environments.

The company is also announcing the newest release of Trend Micro(TM) IM Security for Microsoft Office Communications Server (v1.5), one of the four components of the Communication & Collaboration Security solution. This release includes powerful Web threat protection, support for the latest Microsoft enterprise IM platforms (OCS 2007 standard and enterprise editions) and much more.

A complete, 4-in-1 solution

Trend Micro Communication & Collaboration Security is the first centrally-managed security solution leveraging this unique cloud-client architecture, and is specifically designed for Microsoft email, enterprise IM and collaboration servers. The solution includes: Trend Micro IM Security, Trend Micro ScanMail(TM) for Microsoft Exchange; Trend Micro(TM) PortalProtect(TM) for Microsoft(TM) SharePoint; and Trend Micro Control Manager(TM).

Traditional email security is not enough -- Trend Micro threat researchers see cybercriminal activities exploiting all areas of real-time communication

While electronic communications such as email, instant messaging and collaboration enable smooth, efficient day-to-day business operations, these indispensable tools can come at a price: They increase security risk by opening new pathways for cybercriminals to enter into a corporate network.

Collaboration and instant messaging threats will only accelerate as more enterprises adopt the Microsoft SharePoint and OCS platforms. Osterman Research found that more than half of the organizations using Exchange are also using SharePoint. While adoption of OCS is a bit slower, Osterman found that 17 percent of enterprises use the platform today and 37 percent of them are considering adoption in the next 12 months.(1)

Because of Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, enterprise customers get better, faster Communication and Collaboration security

Trend Micro Communication & Collaboration Security ties directly into Trend Micro Smart Protection Network for an innovative approach to battling fast-moving Web and email threats -- directly accessing the very latest, correlated threat intelligence "in the cloud" to stop them in real-time. Combined with conventional antivirus, anti-spyware, antispam, anti-phishing and content filtering technologies, Trend Micro Smart Protection Network components mark a distinctly new phase in Communication and Collaboration security.

"Trend Micro Communication & Collaboration Security delivers smarter, immediate protection that enables users to safely send email, use IM and collaborate anywhere in the world, keeping organizations' networks and assets secure," said Thomas Miller, general manager for Trend Micro enterprise business unit. "At the same time, the solution is easy to deploy and manage -- reducing the complexity of security within this more tightly interconnected world."
