Trend Micro Announces PC-cillin Internet Security 2004

Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2004 Provides Advanced Individual Security against Internet-based Threats

CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Oct. 27, 2003– Comprehensive Desktop Security Solution Combines Network Security Practices with Home-user Simplicity to Help Make Internet Safe at Home and Office

Trend Micro, Inc. (TSE:4704) (Nasdaq:TMIC), a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, today announced the availability of Trend Micro(TM) PC-cillin(TM) Internet Security 2004, a comprehensive and easy to use PC-based security solution against Internet-based threats such as viruses, hackers, privacy threats and spam. Based on the award-winning PC-cillin, Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2004 is designed for today’s home users and small office/home office (SOHO) users.

With the increased capabilities of Internet access, Internet email, and virtual private networking, home and SOHO users have more freedom and connectivity than ever before, but with that comes increased complexity and security risks. Many households and small or home offices have more than one computer, shared network resources, always-on Internet connections, and may involve remote devices like laptops and PDAs. Families and individuals are open to many of the same risks that plague businesses and organizations: identity theft, hackers, credit card theft, illicit Web sites, computer viruses, and spam.

Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2004 provides a comprehensive, simplified solution against Internet-based threats, helping users to get the most out of their computer systems with minimal concern about controlling security threats. Beginning with an enhanced network virus protection, users can benefit from the same level of protection as big corporations from today’s network-based viruses (like MSBlast and SoBig). With the Network Virus Emergency Center console, early warnings of new threats are sent to users, and virus pattern files can be automatically updated for the latest protection. Automated cleaning and restoration tools are triggered in the event viruses are caught to keep systems functioning properly.

“In the face of today’s sophisticated network viruses, even home and small office users require complete security solutions with tight integration between antivirus, firewall, and spyware detection features,” commented Beau Roberts, Product Group Manager for Consumer Products at Trend Micro. “PC-cillin Internet Security 2004 provides users with the kind of advanced features, such as the new Network Virus Emergency Center, to detect and block network-based threats at the network traffic level, before they can penetrate and infect the PC.”

In addition, Trend Micro Internet Security includes a personal firewall component to protect users from hackers and intruders, and advanced privacy and spyware protection to protect passwords, bank account numbers, and other personal information. Spam and URL filtering features help block unsolicited junk email, and help control access to inappropriate (adult) Web sites. With the profile-setting functions, security needs for family, work, and on-the-road can be customized for each system.

Suggested retail price is $49.95 USD, which includes one year of product support. Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2004 is available through Trend Micro Web stores or through authorized resellers.
