Forrest Recognizes Trend Micro's Internet Messaging Security Solution

In the face of constantly changing threats on the Web, how safe is it to exchange digital information? Trend Micro (News - Alert), a developer of Internet content security and threat management solutions, has been working hard to deliver solutions that protect data in the physical, virtualized and cloud environments and even stop threats from where they emerge, and has been recognized for the effort.

Trend Micro InterScan Messaging Security, which offers proactive protection at the messaging gateway, blocks unwanted mail and blended threats, was hailed by Forrester (News - Alert) as it positioned the company as a leader in cloud security in, “The Forrester Wave: E-mail Content Security, Q4 2012.”

Although the importance of e-mail in business processes within enterprises is understood, e-mail security figures low on the spending priority list. The report noted that since e-mail was a popular attack vector for targeted attacks, and regulatory compliance mandates that e-mails with sensitive data be secured, it was essential for organizations to safeguard e-mail.

In the battle against spam and deceptive e-mail threats, the Forrester report declared Trend Micro’s reporting and management capabilities to be “very impressive.” 

Results of the report were based on the evaluations of nine companies that Forrester Research (News - Alert), Inc. invited to participate, and vendors were evaluated against 47 criteria, which helped determine how strong their product offering and go-to market strategy was and also the strength of their presence in the market. In each area, Trend Micro received top notch ratings.

Since Forrester's evaluation, Trend Micro has continued to innovate, bolstering its suite of e-mail security solutions to detect and prevent targeted attacks, simplifying compliance and data privacy challenges by securing outbound data with DLP and e-mail encryption.

Recently, Trend Micro has updated its mobile security software to detect potential attacks on several Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics devices that have a flaw that could allow a malicious application to access all of the phone’s memory.
