BOSTON, Mass. and CUPERTINO, Calif. - December 2, 2008 - Rapid7 LLC, the leading provider of Unified Vulnerability Management solutions, and Trend Micro Incorporated (TSE: 4704), a global leader in Internet content security, today announced that Rapid7 NeXpose is the vulnerability management engine inside Trend Micro SecureSite, a new hosted, Web-threat vulnerability scanning service for e-commerce Web sites.

Trend Micro SecureSite helps e-businesses safeguard their sites from malicious threats, helps with Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) compliance and protects online shoppers from hackers attempting to steal credit card numbers and passwords. By continually assessing and monitoring their sites with Trend Micro SecureSite to protect customer data, e-businesses strengthen their credibility and reputation, thus increasing their potential revenue.

Trend Micro SecureSite can perform automated daily scans for Web threat vulnerabilities and weaknesses across databases, networks and operating systems as well as multiple Web applications and Web 2.0 (JavaScript, AJAX). Reports are generated automatically that identify higher risk exposures, help customers prioritize and provide expert remediation guidance from TrendLabs for addressing problems quickly. Trend Micro SecureSite's Web-based console displays daily status reports on vulnerabilities and offers a variety of alerting options.

Trend Micro SecureSite monitors Web application vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting (XSS), SQL injection, data leaks, XPath injection and bot attacks as well as a broad range of other vulnerabilities, which may arise as a Web site's content changes or new functionality is added. Trend Micro SecureSite can detect weaknesses and vulnerabilities such as viruses, malware, spyware and other malicious Web threats that can cause data losses during online transactions, further identity theft and set off denial of service attacks.

Available through Trend Micro channel partners, Trend Micro SecureSite is backed by TrendLabs, Trend Micro's global network of research, service and support centers committed to constant threat surveillance and attack prevention. The solution requires no additional hardware or software to deploy or install.

"Cross-site scripting is now the leading type of vulnerability found today, which means that site-specific vulnerabilities continuously emerge and evolve, even on legitimate Web sites," said Richard Ku, vice president, SMB product management at Trend Micro. "With NeXpose's leading-edge Web vulnerability management technology as the Trend Micro SecureSite engine, we can provide high-performance monitoring that is critical for businesses of all sizes that are trying to develop an online presence, and whose revenue and brand depends on the security of their Web site."

"Owners of e-commerce sites can safeguard their investment by defending against Web threats and providing assurance to customers that credit card and personal data will be protected," said Mike Tuchen, president and chief operating officer at Rapid7. "Using Trend Micro SecureSite is an easy and cost-effective way for businesses who accept credit cards to obtain help with PCI DSS compliance."
