Smart protection begins with global threat intelligence powered by Smart Protection Network™ data mining framework – the industry’s first cloud-based threat detection and correlation infrastructure, and used by all our solutions and products. Trend Micro’s Smart Protection Network detects real world threats faster than the competition, and provides the best performance, with the least impact on users and network resources.

We anticipate and innovate

Since its inception in 1988, Trend Micro has pioneered innovative security software technologies and services, adapting product strategies to stay ahead of the dynamic threat landscape and serve customers as they evolve their IT infrastructures.

We were the first to recognize the need for network and gateway security in the 1990s. When we saw web threats overtake other forms of malware we took advantage of cloud computing to launch the Smart Protection Network™ data mining framework that continues to deliver actionable threat intelligence faster than any other security vendor.

We delivered the first agentless anti-malware solution as companies moved to virtualize servers and desktops and recognized the need for increased scanning performance. We continued to innovate by delivering the first agentless integrity monitoring and virtual patching solution as well. And we’ve recently introduced the only multi-tenant version of a cloud and data center security solution for service providers and large organizations.

Now we’re tackling the challenges and opportunities inherent in cloud computing and consumerization, including the proliferation of mobile devices and consumer-grade applications. We’ve introduced Mobile App Reputation technology to dynamically test mobile applications for malicious activity, resource usage and privacy violations, and enhanced our mobile security with integrated device management. We’ve also introduced the first comprehensive security for Amazon Web Services servers, complete with automatic protection.

We are taking the lead on protecting organizations from advanced persistent threats and targeted attacks with our Custom Defense solution. Powered by Deep Discovery, it enables organizations to manage the complete lifecycle of these social, stealthy, and sophisticated threats.
