CUPERTINO, Calif., July 21/PRNewswire/--Trend Micro announced today a new release of ScanMail(TM) for IBM Lotus Domino users -- newly equipped with Web reputation, a component of the Trend Micro(TM) Smart Protection Network(TM) that analyzes Web traffic and blocks malicious traffic coming from or going into business networks. Trend Micro ScanMail 5.0 offers superior, immediate, easy-to-manage email server security for the growing number of customers who are reaping the benefits of Lotus Domino.

"Lotus and Domino software has been -- by far -- the most secure offering of its kind since its inception two decades ago. It's one of the reasons we have so many millions of users in a variety of industries using our software. We're impressed that Trend Micro is the firstcompany to offer this type of support for 64-bit Domino 8.5, allowing IBM customers to reap the full security benefits of our software," said Kevin Cavanaugh, vice president, Messaging and Collaboration, IBM Software.

NEWLY Added Web Reputation Technology - Powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network -- Delivers Proactive Security

Today's aggressive, subversive email threats demand powerful, multi-layered messaging security to protect workgroup collaboration environments like Lotus Domino. ScanMail works with Lotus Domino's built in security features to protect users against viruses and other malware within email attachments and databases; it stops spam, messages with links to malicious sites and sensitive content.

The Smart Protection Network checks, in real time, the reputation of URLs embedded within messages to determine whether email messages are legitimate or malicious - and, if malicious, blocks them before they reach end users.

Real-Time Updates Plus Simple Administration

The cloud-client architecture of the Trend Micro Smart Protection Networks means companies no longer have to rely on solutions such as endpoint signature file updates that are not completely secure and take valuable time to deploy. Unlike customers of competing solutions, users of ScanMail for Lotus Domino no longer worry about frequent security and product updates, nor time-consuming server management.

ScanMailoffers leading malware protection for Lotus Domino environments. With ScanMail, companies can unlock the full power of Lotus Domino 8.5 and their 64-bit infrastructure for up-to-the-minute security in an easy-to-manage solution.

Additional Key Features in ScanMail 5.0 for Lotus Domino Include:
