Trend Micro Delivers PC-cillin Internet Security 2006, Provides More Comprehensive Security for Home Computer Users

Cupertino, CA – October 31, 2005 – Trend Micro, Inc. (TSE: 4704, NASDAQ: TMIC), a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, today announced the latest version of its home office security solution, Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2006. Designed to combat unpredictable malicious threats like phishing, spyware, spam, hackers, viruses, and more, PC-cillin Internet Security offers home computer users more comprehensive security in an automated, easy-to-use package.

The latest version combines new anti-phishing security with enhanced antivirus, anti-spyware, and anti-spam protection, providing users with real-time defense against online fraud and identity theft. Advanced home network protection, such as greater parental controls, personal firewall capabilities, wi-fi security against hackers, and centralized management provide parents with greater assurance that their home computing environment’s security is up-to-date and their families are safe when they’re online.

PC-cillin Internet Security’s enhanced features counter the rising concerns resulting from various unpredictable threats. According to a recent Trend Micro study, more than one-third of home computer users with antivirus protection believe they have been the victim of a malicious attack, such as spyware, virus or spam. The findings validate the need for users to install more comprehensive multi-threat protection at home.

“Working, playing, or doing business online have each become a part of our everyday lives,” said Lane Bess, general manager of Trend Micro Consumer Business Operations. “Unfortunately, security threats are evolving and becoming more unpredictable, creating significant challenges for computer users at home. With Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security, users can work online with the peace of mind that their systems, and their children’s systems, are up-to-date and protected from harm.”
