ADC Shuts Down Viruses From the Desktop to the Gateway With Trend Micro OfficeScan and ScanMail

Protect Leading Broadband Company Against Network Downtime and Potential Lost Revenue

Cupertino, Calif. – June 26, 2002 – Trend Micro, Inc. (Nasdaq: TMIC; TSE: 4704), a worldwide leader in network antivirus and Internet content security solutions, today announced that ADC Telecommunications, Inc. (Nasdaq: ADCT), The Broadband Company(tm), has deployed a suite of products including Trend Micro(tm) OfficeScan(tm) Corporate Edition and Trend Micro ScanMail(tm) for Microsoft(r) Exchange 5.5 to provide an integrated strategy of virus protection for the Internet gateway, the Exchange server, the LAN server, and desktops. ADC has credited the Trend Micro solutions with saving a significant amount of revenue by protecting ADC from major viruses over the past year.

ADC was established in 1935, and is today a $2.4 billion worldwide supplier of equipment and software for companies offering broadband networks. ADC provides custom solutions of network equipment, fiber optics and software that back up the high-speed Internet, data, video and voice services their communications service providers deliver to their customers worldwide.

Prior to implementing Trend Micro’s anti-virus solutions, ADC was running five disparate desktop anti-virus solutions around the world. After the Melissa virus in 1999, ADC began looking for a market-leading antivirus solution that would work as part of their overall protection strategy. ADC’s high technology product offering relies on uninterrupted communication between its sales, manufacturing and development offices in 35 countries. One of the important factors in their selection of Trend solutions was OfficeScan’s ability to run transparently in the background. It provided ADC with the assurance that employees would be unable to disengage the virus protection, avoiding a potential enterprise-wide attack.

“After reviewing numerous options to secure our enterprise, we decided Trend Micro’s strong products, cutting edge technology and tight integration with Microsoft’s APIs would provide the best multi-layered network protection for ADC,” said Kamalesh Dwivedi, Vice President and Chief Information Officer, ADC. “Thanks to Trend Micro’s OfficeScan and ScanMail, we have survived recent virus attacks without a single infection.”

Trend Micro’s ScanMail for Microsoft Exchange 2000 is a multi-threaded memory scanning antivirus and content filtering solution designed to protect organizations of any size against email-borne viruses, spam, and unwanted message content in the Microsoft Exchange 5.5 environment. Trend Micro OfficeScan Corporate Edition is a comprehensive antivirus solution for desktop and mobile clients. OfficeScan’s centralized, server-based management features help make the ADC installation run smoothly and allows administrators to fully manage and enforce antivirus policies for the entire organization.
