CUPERTINO, Calif., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ --Trend Micro is extending its endpoint protection to enterprises who are juggling security for both Windows and Mac platforms on their corporate networks.

Trend Micro(TM) Security for Mac(TM) 1.5 is designed to protect corporate Mac users against viruses, spyware, blended threats and platform-independent Web-based attacks on the Mac platform. It integrates with Trend Micro(TM) OfficeScan(TM) Client/Server, which has been protecting millions of endpoints for over a decade.

OfficeScan's extensible and unique plug-in architecture allows Trend Micro to give enterprise customers - many of whom are adding the Mac platform to their corporate networks - superior management of Mac desktops, laptops and servers through the same Web console that manages Windows clients and servers.

The product includes Web reputation, a key component of the Trend Micro(TM) Smart Protection Network(TM) infrastructure, protecting businesses from Web threats for over two years through one of the largest domain-reputation databases in the world. The technology prevents users and applications from accessing malicious or infiltrated Web sites while both on and off the corporate network.

"Cross platform Web-based threats and phishing attacks exist, regardless of the operating system and as more enterprises adopt multiple platforms, they need flexible security that adapts to their needs," said Thomas Miller, general manager for the enterprise business unit, Trend Micro. "Trend Micro has been conducting extensive OS X threat research for over seven years and is currently the only vendor protecting the Mac against native and cross platform Web-based threats."

Key features of Trend Micro Securityfor Macinclude:

-- Group policy management of up to 1,000 Mac endpoints within OfficeScan. -- Streamlined Cocoa client user-interface with hassle free auto-registration to the server. -- Location aware Web reputation policies so employees are protected both on and off the corporate network. -- Protection for both the host Mac OS system and any Windows virtual machines. -- Improved manual scan performance using the Quick Scan feature.
