Trend Micro Updates Complete User Protection Platform
Upgrades include expanded hosted email security for protection of Microsoft Office365 deployments and browser exploit detection.Security software specialist Trend Micro announced major upgrades to its Complete User Protection solution, which spans PC and mobile endpoints, email and collaboration, and Web security to enable integrated visibility and threat response. The platform, which offers support for cloud, hybrid and on-premise deployments, includes application control, which enables category-based whitelisting and PC endpoint lockdown as an additional layer of protection against advanced malware and targeted attacks that evade signature-based defense. Refreshed vulnerability protection capabilities proactively protect against exploits directed at operating system and application vulnerabilities until patches can be deployed, while improved endpoint encryption includes preboot authentication and management for Windows Bitlocker and MacOS FileVault native disk encryption. DCI Donor Services (DCI), a specialist in facilitating organ and tissue donation, is using the solution to support more than 300 employees and approximately 400-500 devices, including laptops and tablets.
"Since we deployed Trend Micro's security solutions, we've seen a decrease in time spent looking for security compromises," Greg Bell, IT director of DCI Donor Services, said in a statement. "The user interface is simple and easy to manage, which helps us be as efficient as possible. Plus, it alerts us when there's a threat detected across endpoints, from laptops to desktops or servers – we don't have to go out and find it. That allows us more time and resources to focus on our mission to save and enhance lives."
