Smart, Optimised, Connected Security Solutions: Trend Micro

thesiliconreview-eva-chen-ceo-trend-micro-17“We are highly innovative – keeping pace with technological change to consistently deliver advanced threat intelligence and protection you can count on.”

The sophistication of cyber threats in the early days, the threat landscape was black and white – requiring the ability to quickly and efficiently determine the known good and known bad. Classic techniques like anti-malware and content filtering were sufficient to detect and block known bad files, URLs, and spam. These highly efficient techniques remain critical for eliminating the high volume of known bad threats still active today. Since there is an increase in stealthier and more sophisticated unknown threats, the ‘grey’ areas like targeted attacks, zero-day exploits, ransomware, and business email compromise, require more advanced threat defense techniques.

While some “next-gen” offerings rely solely on one technique like behavioral analysis or machine learning, Trend Micro believes that when it comes to defending your organization against the full range of known and unknown threats, there is no silver bullet. Your enterprise needs trusted solutions that can help solve multiple concerns.

IT infrastructure continues to change, user behavior becomes riskier, and threats evolve. Trend Micro continuously innovates to stay one step ahead of the bad guys. The company’s founders have set the tone, the culture, and the road to innovation – building a strong team of people who work together to help achieve a goal of making the world safer to exchange digital information. Since its creation, Trend Micro has become a leader in the safe exchange of digital information. For 26 years, the company’s threat defense experts have focused on the protection of data against targeted attacks.

Dawn of Trend Micro

In 1988, Trend Micro was co-founded by Steve Chang, Jenny Chang, and Eva Chen to develop antivirus software—but it didn’t stop there. Over the last three decades, the company has become a market leader in hybrid cloud security, network defense, small business security, and endpoint security. The firm’s seasoned executive team is just as passionate as its worldwide threat and vulnerability experts about making the world safer for exchanging digital information. Their dedication inspires the entire company to consistently raise the bar on protection by expanding boundaries, challenging assumptions, and building a safer future.

For nearly 30 years, Trend Micro’s unwavering vision has been to make the world safe for exchanging digital information. Security is its entire focus, and it shows. This single-minded passion has inspired its innovations that keep up with the bad guys despite a changing IT landscape, riskier user behavior, and constantly evolving threats.

The depth of its experience remains unmatched. From the endpoint to the network to the cloud, Trend Micro got you covered with a connected threat defense recognized by analysts, customers, and industry gurus of all kinds.

Trend Micro: The Threat Defence Experts

thesiliconreview-byod-cover-17The company is more than just the best technology. Trend Micro’s founders have fostered a culture built with people who live and breathe threat intelligence.
