Trend Micro Introduces Hosted Email Security 2.0

New hosted email security platform delivers daily protection to companies globally

Marlow, UK - March 16, 2010 - Trend Micro is today introducing Trend Micro™ Hosted Email Security, a new platform which offers mission-critical service standards.
Powered by Trend Micro's Smart Protection Network, businesses will now benefit from real-time protection against e-mail borne threats without having to invest in additional IT resources.

"Email security is mission critical for our customers," said James Walker, SMB product marketing manager, Trend Micro, EMEA. "Trend Micro's new Hosted Email Security ensures customers receive 100 percent service uptime, effective spam blocking and zero email-based viruses. In addition, we're including our leading anti-malware technology stopping malicious URLs embedded in emails."

Trend Micro scans, filters and correlates more than 20 billion emails, Web sites and files every single day, and then leverages that data to rapidly identify and respond to emerging threats, and improve the existing response to known threats. The engine processing all this traffic across millions of customers, multiple products, and hosted and on-premise environments is the Smart Protection Network infrastructure.

"According to our email best practices benchmarking, adding-in hosted email security will typically reduce the time that IT staff must spend on email security maintenance by up to 75 percent (or more in some cases) versus continuing with on-premise email security only," says messaging industry expert, Michael Osterman of Osterman Research.

Trend Micro Hosted Email Security 2.0 has been purpose built to be the number one choice in anti-spam and anti-malware. Trend Micro has included all the core engines that enabled Trend Micro's previous version of its hosted email security solution - InterScan™ Messaging Hosted Security (IMHS) - to be voted the #1 top-rated email security solution when compared to products from other leading vendors, according to independent benchmarking company West Coast Labs.

Grant Pearson, Director at de Le Cuona, said: "Email security is a critical concern for all businesses. Small businesses, in particular, often cannot invest in dedicated IT resources to manage security and managing email spam for example can be both difficult and costly. With Trend Micro's new hosted email security small businesses can now benefit from a top-rated enterprise level email security solution." He added: "We used to receive vast amounts of unsolicited emails and spam. Managing this spam placed a burden on both our time and resources and significantly slowed down business processes. Trend Micro's new hosted email security now detects and blocks unwanted messages, making it an invaluable email security solution for our business."
