Trend Micro™ Portable Security is a new concept in antivirus products designed for environments where installing antivirus can be difficult - manufacturing environments, medical offices, public institutions, or schools. Portable Security uses a USB memory device to enable IT managers to scan and eliminate viruses, whether you are linked to the internet or not.
Trend Micro™ Portable Security allows you to scan and eliminate viruses using security installed on a USB memory device. For this reason, it is possible to easily carry out a virus scan and removal for a wide range of environments as long as a USB interface is available. Portable Security was designed to avoid the risks inherent when devices are not automatically updated with the latest security running the risk of a virus infection in a factory or manufacturing plant; or an offline office environment; or products that are ship-infected with virus.
Environments that are not connected to the Internet, and therefore, unavailable for typical scanning and deletion practices, are now able to carry out virus scans and removal via Portable Security with the latest pattern files. This helps to prevent:
Increasingly employees are infecting company networks when they access via personal devices or computers that do not have the latest security. Scanning with Portable Security before reconnecting to your local network can prevent costly network infections, data breaches, and downtime.
Designed for rapid deployment, all you need to do to deploy Trend Micro Portable Security is to determine the number of devices you need to scan then begin actual operation as follows:
And remember that TMPS includes a log management function that allows you to track usage
Trend Micro™ Portable Security can be used across a wide range of applications. It has proven most beneficial to the following industries with offline environments:
In addition, it is useful in environments where installing antivirus software is difficult:
A. TMPS is a specialised security tool, so it cannot be used as a normal USB memory device as it does not have space for writing any of your data.
A. In TMPS version 1.1, the UI can be displayed in Japanese or in English.
A. No. TMPS does not provide real-time scanning functionality.
A. You update the latest pattern file acquired from Trend Micro by your management computer which does need to be connected to the internet.
A. TMPS does not scan for viruses on the management computer itself.
A. Yes, it is possible to scan multiple target computers with 1 scan tool.
A. TMPS uses special USB memory in order to protect the scan tool itself. It will not work on a normal USB memory stick.
A. Isolated files are kept in a quarantine folder within the scan tool.
A. It is possible to scan if it is mounted as a drive.
A. Yes, the results of the virus scan are output in the logs.
A. The USB memory device with TMUSB installed that are being sold by USB memory vendors do not scan the hard drive of the computer targeted for scanning. They scan only the files written onto USB memory. TMPS scans the local hard drive of the target computer. The main difference is that TMUSB is a product developed on the assumption that the target computer is being protected by our products, but TMPS was developed on the assumption that the environment cannot have anti-virus software installed.
A. No, it is not necessary. The usage fee for the administrator program is included in the price of the TMPS product
