Trend Micro Advances Its Commitment to Make the Digital World Safer

Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today advanced its commitment to make the world safer for exchanging digital information. The company is a founding member of the new Cybersecurity Tech Accord, a pact among the largest ever group of technology and cybersecurity companies focused on defending businesses everywhere from cyberattacks. In addition, Trend Micro is launching yet another free security tool for businesses, a phishing simulator called Phish Insight.

The Cybersecurity Tech Accord is a newly formed alliance of 30 companies—including Cisco, Facebook, HP, Intel, Microsoft, Nokia, Oracle, Siemens and Trend Micro—which have agreed to defend all customers from malicious attacks by cybercriminal gangs and nation states. One of multiple pillars of the group includes a desire to do more to empower developers and the people and businesses that use their technology to protect themselves.

As the world leader in vulnerability detection, and one of few dedicated cybersecurity companies to join the Accord, Trend Micro will bring global threat intelligence expertise to the group. Trend Micro plans to play an active role in coordinating vulnerability disclosures, sharing threats and minimizing malicious code in cyberspace. Additionally, the company is in the unique position to assist those in the Accord to identify vulnerabilities earlier in their own applications.

“No company can solve the issue of cyber threats alone, which is why we align with strong technology partners, like the Cybersecurity Tech Accord,” said Eva Chen, chief executive officer of Trend Micro. “We understand that technology experts must join forces to tackle threats from all sides, and we partner with both public and private organizations to face our collective adversary—cybercriminals.”

Chen continued: “Malicious threat actors are our only competitors. We leverage our extensive threat intelligence to inform and fuel our products, including the free tools that can give any company or consumer access to cybersecurity protection and remediation.”

Our work as founding member of the Cybersecurity Tech Accord is just one of many initiatives Trend Micro is undertaking to make the digital world a safer place.

Trend Micro continues to collaborate with global law enforcement agencies and employs and supports thousands of threat and vulnerability researchers worldwide. The company uses this extensive threat intelligence to consistently develop and offer free tools to bolster current protections against the biggest cyber risks facing organizations.

Some of today’s most pressing cyber threats—including ransomware and targeted attacks—come via phishing emails. To combat these risks, Trend Micro is now offering Phish Insight as a free, enterprise-grade phishing simulation tool to educate and test employees’ awareness of email scams. Phish Insight requires zero budget and only five minutes to begin a highly realistic phishing simulation.

“We count on Trend Micro as a security partner. With that comes the expectation that they will deliver the latest methods to detect, assess and react to threats,” said Niall O’Beaglaoi, business development manager with Smarttech. “Their newest tool, Phish Insight, has provided invaluable information on how users perceive and interact with phishing emails.”

It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged.

The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data.

Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.
