The Trend Micro Virus Scan Engine is a robust, industry-leading module that executes the file scanning and virus detection functions. Together with the virus pattern, it protects computers against known malware threats, including malicious programs written in Java™ and ActiveX™.
Trend Micro Virus Scan Engine is powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, a next-generation cloud-client security infrastructure designed to protect customers from Web threats.
The Smart Protection Network powers both on-premise and hosted solutions to protect users whether they are on the network, at home, or on the go, using lightweight clients to access its unique in-the-cloud correlation of email, Web, and file reputation technologies, as well as threat databases. Customers’ protection is automatically updated and strengthened as more products, services, and users access the network, creating a real-time neighborhood watch protection service for its users.
