Trend Micro Announces New HQ In Texas

Announcement also coincides with company’s 25th anniversary

DALLAS, Sept. 17, 2013 –Trend Micro (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a pioneer in security software and solutions, today officially announced the grand opening of its Global Operations Headquarters in Irving/Las Colinas, Texas, located near Dallas. The new location will house business units, including: threat research, finance, legal, customer support, commercial sales and marketing, and human resources. Initially, 220 employees will work from the office with potential for additional expansion.

This announcement also coincides with the company's 25th anniversary, as well as the launch of a new program to support K-12 schools across the nation. A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held today at 225 E. John Carpenter Freeway, Suite 1500.

"Although we have become one of the largest companies in our industry, we maintain an entrepreneurial spirit that is deeply committed to making the world safe for sharing digital information," said Eva Chen, CEO, Trend Micro. "With our new base of operations in the United States, we are further demonstrating a relentless dedication to customers as we enter a new era after our first quarter century in business. We are excited that 'Trenders' from all around the world will experience the vibrant business community the Dallas-Fort Worth area has to offer."

Trend Micro was founded in 1988 by Steve and Jenny Chang, along with her sister, Eva Chen, in Los Angeles. As the company's top competitors have diversified into other businesses, Trend Micro has emerged as the largest company in the world that is solely focused on cyber security software and solutions.

Global research firms have also reinforced the company's leadership position. In a recent report[1], IDC ranked Trend Micro No.1 in worldwide corporate server security revenue with a 30.8 percent overall market share. The Experton Group ranked the company first in cloud security in its 2013 Cloud Vendor Benchmark report.

"It is truly exciting that, as we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we are also announcing a new headquarters in one of the most dynamic economic centers in the world," said Kevin Simzer, senior vice president, marketing and business development, Trend Micro. "This location will serve a vital role for the company as we continue to gain momentum worldwide. The Dallas-Fort Worth office affords us an ideal location to be successful, with access to an exceptional talent pool and the ability to travel anywhere in the world with ease."

In addition to its new D/FW location and anniversary, Trend Micro is launching its Educational Grant program with a gift to the Irving Independent School District. This initiative will support "technology-safe" education at K-12 public schools and districts across the country. A total of $25,000 in cash, software and technology services will be awarded to each recipient to help keep students safe online with both training and Trend Micro's innovative security software. The program will also include an Internet Safety Awareness assembly to teach best practices for online safety.
