Trend Micro Extends and Enhances Security for Corporate Messaging Communication and Collaboration Environments

Cupertino, CA – July 5, 2005 – Trend Micro, Inc. (TSE: 4704, NASDAQ: TMIC), a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, today announced new and enhanced virus, content, and spam protection for some of the most advanced email, instant messaging, and collaboration environments.

The latest offerings advance Trend Micro’s ability to ensure the safe deployment of comprehensive collaboration infrastructures and to secure end-to-end communications against evolving attacks that may threaten the open nature of such environments.

Trend Micro’s solutions for communication and collaboration environments include: · IM Security for Microsoft Office Live Communication Server (NEW – v1.0) · ScanMail(TM) for Microsoft Exchange (NEW – v7.0) · ScanMail for Lotus Domino (NEW – v3.0) · PortalProtect(TM) for Microsoft SharePoint (NEW – v1.6) · InterScan(TM) Messaging Security Suite · Spam Prevention Solution

The enhanced solutions come at a time when security risks to such interdependent server-based applications as Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, and Microsoft SharePoint are increasing – network worms, viruses, spam, and other unwanted content can rapidly infect an organization and spread to business partners, customers, or the public at large, making damage and cleanup costly and time-consuming.

With the evolution of communications tools and collaborative environments, the potential for disruption from malicious code, spam, and inappropriate content increases dramatically. As the adoption of these technologies broadens, a new wave of blended threats may emerge, exploiting the rich interaction enabled by these applications. Integrated security solutions that include expert support and timely services will help minimize the impact of such attacks.

“By providing a variety of crucial security options, Trend Micro is helping customers generate ROI on prominent communication platforms fueling today’s collaboration environments,” said Max Cheng, executive vice president and general manager for enterprise products at Trend Micro. “Our security solutions integrate with other products and services under Trend Micro(TM) Enterprise Protection Strategy, providing the integrated, comprehensive protection businesses need to secure their corporate network.”

The newest member to the communications security family, Trend Micro IM Security for Microsoft Office Live Communication Server, helps prevent recent worms like Bropia, Kelvir, and Fatso from using instant messaging (IM) as a propagation vehicle. Without appropriate protection against malicious code and inappropriate content, IM could become as vulnerable to abuse as email.

Trend Micro ScanMail for Microsoft Exchange v7.0 now features optional anti-spam and advanced content filtering technology to ensure the uninterrupted flow of email traffic, in addition to its award-winning, high-performance scanning and centralized management capabilities.

In addition to the above solutions, Trend Micro will continue developing the latest protection for corporate communication and collaboration applications from such leading vendors as Microsoft, IBM, and Oracle.
