Subsidiary of leading European Internet Service Provider, T-Online, Chooses
Trend Micro’s InterScan VirusWall
Marlow, England. – 27th November 2001 – Trend Micro (NASDAQ: TMIC, TSE: 4704), a worldwide leader in network antivirus and Internet content security solutions, is pleased to announce that its market-leading Internet gateway antivirus solution, InterScanä VirusWallä, has been selected by T-Online subsidiary, Club-Internet, to protect the mail boxes of all new subscribers to its FULL IS BEAUTIFUL service.
The FULL IS BEAUTIFUL service was launched by Club-Internet in September of this year. Subscribers are offered a wealth of services as part of their subscription, including protection against computer viruses and other malicious code. In order to ensure the success of its new offering, Club-Internet needed an antivirus solution it could trust to offer protection against virus propagation via email. A recent survey has shown that over 80% of the viruses in the wild today are transmitted in this way. For this reason, it chose to secure its servers with Trend Micro’s InterScan VirusWall.
InterScan VirusWall sits on Club-Internet’s servers and automatically scans all transitory emails, offering peace of mind to subscribers to Club-Internet’s FULL IS BEAUTIFUL service, allowing them to send and receive emails protected from all known computer viruses in the wild.
Users of Club-Internet’s other services can also benefit by updating their current subscription.
