Trend Micro OfficeScan now available for 20% less

Marlow, England, 8th November 2001. Trend Micro (Nasdaq TMIC; TSE 4704), a worldwide leader in network antivirus and Internet security solutions, is pleased to announce that that it will be offering its desktop antivirus solution, OfficeScanä Corporate edition at a special discounted rate. All customers in the EMEA region who switch to OfficeScan from an existing comparable desktop AV product from another manufacturer will receive an extra 20% discount between 12th November-21st December 2001.

OfficeScan Corporate Edition is an enterprise desktop antivirus solution that offers centralised virus protection across the network. It is fully scalable, stable and easy to manage. ActiveUpdate technology automatically updates virus pattern files, scan engine, and program files without administrator or user intervention. OfficeScan Corporate Edition uses incremental virus pattern file updates for fast, efficient updating of a large number of desktop computers.

OfficeScan Corporate edition was recently deployed to protect over 400 workstations and some 5000 journalists and ministers’ assistants at 4 EU summits taking place in Q3 and Q4 2001, on the recommendation of Siemens, Belgium. Siemens, itself a worldwide user of OfficeScan is managing the security and logistics of the summits and required robust virus protection to ensure the EU summit PCs remain intact.

Guy Van Pouke, Siemens, Belgium explains, "The workstations we are providing will be used by some 5000 journalists throughout the four summits, and the last thing we want is for operations to be hampered by computer viruses or other forms of malicious code. We opted for Trend Micro's OfficeScan as we use the product internally. This means that our technical support staff understand it, but most importantly, we know we can trust it."

Raimund Genes, VP Sales and Marketing, Trend Micro, Europe ends, “ The importance of desktop protection should not be underestimated, particularly with the current growth of the mobile workforce. Employees are logging on to email and the Internet via dial-up connections from remote locations and so are not protected by companies’ Internet gateway virus protection. If there is no desktop AV solution, they then run the risk of introducing malicious code into the corporate network the next time the come into the office. It is for such reasons that Trend Micro recommends protecting corporate networks at every possible entry level.”

Pricing and availability

OfficeScan corporate edition will be available at an extra 20% discounted rate to all customers switching from comparable desktop AV solutions from 12th November – 21st December 2001 (inclusive). Prices start at €360 for a 25 user licence (price includes 20% discount). This offer is valid in the EMEA region only.
