Dubbed Trend Micro Communication & Collaboration Security, the suite consists of four products-Trend Micro IM Security for Microsoft Office Communications Server, Trend Micro ScanMail for Microsoft Exchange, Trend Micro PortalProtect for Microsoft SharePoint and Trend Micro Control Manager. The suite is powered by the Smart Protection Network, Trend Micro's content security architecture.
