Trend Micro, the network security and anti-virus software provider, grew more than 35% last year, ahead of the market and its nearest rivals. Research firm IDC released the figures in its report on the secure content management market this week. It said the market as a whole grew 28% in 2004; this includes data on anti-virus, messaging security and web filtering software and services. Brian Burke, research manager for IDC, says, “Trend Micro has consistently demonstrated a strong position in the secure content management market. To remain successful Trend Micro has adapted quickly to market challenges and the evolution of security threats such as spyware, phishing and spam, in which financial gain has become the number one driving force.” The report also highlighted Trend’s messaging security revenue. This grew at 45.3% in 2004, and includes revenue from anti-spam and content filtering products and services. “The IDC figures strongly mirror the growth of Trend Micro’s secure content ,management business in the Middle East. As the non-oil economy matures, an increasing number of companies are relying on the swift and secure transfer of information as the lifeblood of their operations; keeping that information secure is business critical,” says Justin Doo, Trend Micro’s Middle East managing director.
