Cupertino, CA – December 17XX, 2002 – Trend Micro (Nasdaq: TMIC, TSE: 4704), a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, has announced that Trend Micro(tm) ServerProtect received the Virus Bulletin 100% award for its virus-detection capabilities. Virus Bulletin tests are widely recognized within the antivirus industry and are key indicators of the effectiveness of a vendor’s antivirus solution. This latest award clearly acknowledges the excellence of Trend Micro’s technology and continued dedication to providing the highest quality products and services to its customers.

The test extensively examined 21 antivirus products that support the Windows 2000 environment. The Virus Bulletin 100% logo is awarded to products that detect currently circulating or “in-the-wild” viruses during both on-demand and on-access scanning in Virus Bulletin’s comparative tests. The product must also produce no false positives.

Oscar Chang, Executive Vice President, Global Security Service and Response at Trend Micro said: “We are very pleased to receive this accolade from one of the most respected, independent antivirus testing organizations in the world. Virus Bulletin offers impartial advice about antivirus security and products available. Its findings confirm our key role in providing powerful and reliable antivirus solutions. Trend Micro is backed by one of the world’s largest antivirus research teams, and is committed to keeping our customers’ networks protected from current and future virus threats.”

Virus Bulletin’s comparative tests are extremely stringent and typically focus on virus detection rates, scanning speeds, and performance overhead of on-access or resident scanning components. It uses the viruses on the WildList Organization’s lists for its tests; these are acknowledged as causing real-world virus incidents and doing so in more than just one or two isolated locations.
