CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704), the global leader in cloud security, today announced that it was cited as a leader in The Forrester Wave™: Email Content Security, Q4 2012, based on evaluations of the nine companies that Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate. Trend Micro InterScan™ Messaging Security, which delivers gateway messaging security with on-site and cloud components, was among the products evaluated.
Vendors were evaluated against 47 criteria, which were grouped into three high-level buckets: The strength of vendor's current product offering, the strength of vendor's go-to-market strategy, and the size of vendor's market presence. According to the Forrester report, Trend Micro InterScan Messaging Security's "reporting and management capabilities … are impressive. Trend led all other vendors in these areas."
Forrester states in the report that "email is a key component of business processes within enterprises and must be secured. Despite the fact that email security is low on the spending priority list, it's critical that organizations safeguard email. Email is a popular attack vector for targeted attacks, and HIPAA and PCI mandate that emails containing confidential data be secured."
Since Forrester's evaluation in April 2012, Trend Micro has continued to innovate, bolstering its suite of email security solutions not only to stop traditional threats, but also to identify highly targeted, acute email attacks. As part of the Trend Micro™ Custom Defense Solution, Trend Micro's email security products detect and prevent targeted attacks in addition to blocking spam and simplifying compliance and data privacy challenges by securing outbound data with DLP and email encryption.
