Visitors to this week’s Gitex can get a taste of the wild life, as security firm Trend Micro is showing delegates what “live” viruses really look like on its stand. The viruses are being displayed inside a Perspex shield, although for those visitors who find that prospect all a bit too scary, they can be rest assured that Trend Micro has a number of its leading experts on hand to keep them safe. Currently one of the world’s leaders in network antivirus and internet content security software and services, the security firm is using this week’s show to highlight the shifting landscape of the fight against destructive software in the Middle East. The company has lined up some of its expert staff to present new research, and allow attendees to uncover new information about spam, spyware and malware, which will help them to protect their companies. “Gitex attendees can see viruses up close through special glasses, and gain a first-hand insight into just how much damage they can inflict. We want to emphasise the importance of virus protection to visitors to the exhibition and provide them with updates on the advanced technology that is now available in the region to protect them,” says Justin Doo, managing director, Trend Micro Middle East & Africa. This week’s show will also see Trend Micro’s unveil the latest in a series of state-of-the-art solutions for fighting spyware and malware. Visitors can also be able to learn more about key technologies, such as Trend Micro InterScan Web Security Suite, which blocks spyware from entering the network at the gateway, and Trend Micro OfficeScan, which blocks unwanted spyware, adware, remote access tools, and hacking tools at the desktop. Having claimed significant medium-sized and enterprise business throughout the Middle East during 2005, and worked with a number of leading banking, government, and oil & gas organisations, Trend Micro is showcasing what it sees as its unmatched industry expertise this week. “Trend Micro has its most impressive-ever presence at Gitex 2005, including head-turning Spyware solutions, an increased emphasis on greyware, and improved network virus protection,” says Doo.
