Security vendor Trend Micro has released new and enhanced virus, content, and spam protection for e-mail, instant messaging and collaboration environments. The latest offerings advance Trend Micro’s ability to ensure the safe deployment of comprehensive collaboration infrastructures and to secure end-to-end communications against evolving attacks that may threaten the open nature of such environments in the region. The enhanced solutions come at a time when security risks in the Middle East to popular business communication applications, such as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, and Microsoft SharePoint, are increasing. Network worms, viruses, spam, and other unwanted content can rapidly infect an organisation and spread to business partners, customers, or the public at large, making damage and cleanup costly and time-consuming. “By providing a variety of crucial security options for customers in the Middle East, Trend Micro is ensuring maximum return and security on prominent communication platforms,” says Justin Doo, managing director of Trend Micro in the Middle East and Africa region. “Our security solutions integrate with other products and services under Trend Micro Enterprise Protection Strategy (EPS), providing the integrated, comprehensive protection businesses need to secure their corporate network,” he adds. The newest member to the communications security family, Trend Micro IM Security for Microsoft Office Live Communication Server, helps prevent recent worms like Bropia, Kelvir, and Fatso from using instant messaging (IM) as a propagation vehicle. Without appropriate protection against malicious code and inappropriate content, IM could become as vulnerable to abuse as e-mail. Trend Micro ScanMail for Microsoft Exchange v7.0 now features optional anti-spam and advanced content filtering technology to ensure the uninterrupted flow of email traffic, in addition to its award-winning, high-performance scanning and centralised management capabilities. In addition to the above solutions, Trend Micro will continue developing the latest protection for corporate communication and collaboration applications from such leading vendors as Microsoft, IBM, and Oracle in the Middle East.
