CUPERTINO, Calif. -- Trend Micro Incorporated, (TSE: 4704, NASDAQ: TMIC), a leader in network antivirus and content security software and services, today announced InterScan Gateway Security Appliance, the latest addition to its portfolio of gateway security solutions that provide choice to customers, independent of form factor or business size.
Trend Micro InterScan Gateway Security Appliance is designed for mid-sized organizations looking for an easy to install, easy to maintain content security solution. While protecting corporate and personal data, the appliance supports employee productivity and it includes an anti-bot functionality to help prevent internal PCs from becoming zombies.
This new all-in-one secure content management appliance incorporates antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, content filtering and URL filtering into one seamless unit. Unlike UTM (unified threat management) appliances, InterScan Gateway Security Appliance sits behind a customers existing firewall/VPN solution adding an additional layer to their Internet gateway security.
Mid-sized businesses require flexible content security solutions that can support an often complex and distributed network. InterScan Gateway Security Appliance provides both ease-of-use and flexibility with simplified installation through preconfigured software and hardware. Also comprising heuristic detection technology and automated, remote cleanup capabilities, InterScan Gateway Security Appliance enables organizations to enforce their gateway content security with a single product.
Trend Micro originally pioneered gateway-based antivirus in 1996, and according to research by independent analyst firm, IDC, has since this time continually held the antivirus gateway market leadership position (source: IDC, Worldwide Antivirus 2005 2009 Forecast and Analysis, December 2005). Trend Micro InterScan VirusWall was the first gateway antivirus product on the market, it is available on a choice of platforms including Linux, and following recent product enhancements Trend Micro has reintroduced the award-winning solution now with integrated anti-spyware and anti-bot protection.
Gateway security protection has proven to be one of the most effective and important solutions in the battle against cyber crime. By blocking malicious malware at the Internet Gateway, businesses can reduce the risk of infiltration and infection early on, before the malware reaches the desktop.
Trend Micro maintains a customer focused business environment combined with ongoing threat research, in order to provide comprehensive, reliable security for our customers digital information and assets, said Steve Quane, general manager Trend Micro small and medium sized business operations. By developing different types of solutions and services for different sized organizations, Trend Micro solutions continue to protect as customers businesses grow.
