Complete Software-As-A-Service Security Platform Offers Further Channel Opportunity

MARLOW, UK—July 30, 2007—Trend Micro Incorporated (TSE: 4704), a leader in network antivirus and content security software and services, today announced immediate availability of SecureCloud™, Trend Micro’s complete Software-as-a-Service Security platform offering its industry leading threat protection solutions for small, medium and enterprise businesses.

The SecureCloud security platform has three dimensions that together create a complete Software-as-a-Service solution:

- Security policy for all types of users that can be managed from a single Web console.

- Protection against threats across email and the Web that includes Web reputation, anti-malware and comprehensive content security.

- Services that deliver security across all elements of the customer’s infrastructure from gateway to desktop.

SecureCloud will offer a range of solutions to meet the distinct needs of different customer sizes. Enterprise customers are increasingly outsourcing specific elements of their security such as email protection; freeing IT resources to focus on more productive projects. Small businesses are struggling to cope with the many different security point solutions and prefer a single simple-to-use Web console to manage these solutions. SecureCloud can meet these needs and has the ability to scale and add services as businesses grow and requirements change. In its continued commitment to the channel community, Trend Micro has designed SecureCloud to be fully channel enabled.

Available today through SecureCloud is Trend Micro Email Reputation Services, a highly effective first line of defense for messaging gateway security. The Service’s administration portal provides customers with a unique policy in-the-cloud capability to decide how aggressive they wish to be with abusive email senders. The portal enables administrators to apply a policy to a specific ISP or country, as well as run a Botnet Report to monitor their own network address space for malicious activity. The Service already has 6,000 active customers and over 100 million mailboxes protected on a global basis.

Email Reputation Services is also available from Trend Micro’s strategic partner Cisco. The Service can be purchased as part of the Security Plus pack which runs on the Trend Micro CSC blade for Cisco ASA Platforms.

“Trend Micro has foreseen the transition from security at the gateway or network edge toward the Internet cloud. While application and storage servers still require resident security, the end point now needs a thin security agent which can be achieved with in-the-cloud updates,” said John Maddison, general manager Trend Micro Network Services. “Trend Micro is enabling our partners to provide a complete range of Software-as-a-Service security applications either as point solutions or as a combination of services managed through a single web console. Trend Micro is unique within the service industry being able to leverage its own technology with a focus on unifying security applications from the edge to the end point.”

“Our commitment to the channel is key to the announcement of our complete Software-as-a-Service strategy,” added Anthony O’Mara, EMEA vice president, Trend Micro. “Unlike some pureplay providers, Trend Micro offers it’s partners the ability to choose the form factor that is most appropriate to their customer’s environment, whether that is software, appliance or service.”
