Relationship improves information sharing with innovative research and initiatives

DALLAS, Nov. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global pioneer in security software and solutions, today announced its partnership with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the United Nations' specialized agency for information and communication technologies, in support of its Global Cybersecurity Agenda. This relationship will better equip ITU's 193 Member States, as well as more than 700 private-sector entities and academic institutions, with the latest information to fight cyber threats globally. The collaboration was commemorated at ITU Telecom World 2013 in Bangkok, Nov. 19-22.

Through this partnership, Trend Micro will provide institutional expertise and research to the ITU, in addition to resources from the company's Internet Safety for Kids & Families initiative. This includes global threat reports, access to a worldwide network of TrendLabs researchers and threat alert updates.

"This partnership reinforces Trend Micro's mission and commitment to making the world safe for exchanging digital information," said Raimund Genes, CTO, Trend Micro. "We look forward to further contributing to global cybersecurity and are proud to have earned the trust of ITU to be at the forefront of suppressing dangerous online activity. Our open and ongoing exchange of research, resources and technology will play an important role in helping ITU inform key stakeholders about current and future cyber threats that can impact their respective constituencies."

Trend Micro and ITU will distribute co-branded information to key influencers and audiences on a regular basis. Alerts will be activated as needed in real-time via ESCAPE, ITU's secure communication portal that disseminates important information, including details about global implications and mitigation procedures for high-impact threat incidents.

"As part of our emphasis on connecting the world through a seamless communications system, it is important to make sure that cyber threats don't undermine our cause," said ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun I. Toure. "By making the latest research and resources available, Trend Micro is supporting our vision by providing expertise and resources to help people avoid being victimized by criminal and irresponsible online behavior.
