DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in security software and solutions, is committed to protecting customers and consumers against today’s greatest security threats. Trend Micro has blocked more than 100 million ransomware threats for their customers in the last six months alone, with 99 percent of threats blocked from email and web traffic. Recognizing the growth and impact of ransomware, the company has taken a holistic approach to helping customers defend against ransomware, and is delivering:
“Trend Micro is actively assessing the threat of ransomware and acting to protect against it,” said Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro. “We understand this pervasive form of cyberattack can be debilitating to enterprises, regardless of size or industry, and can cause grave amounts of stress and costs to consumers. Trend Micro business and consumer products have been tuned to deliver the best protection against ransomware. Our ransomware recovery tools and phone hotlines leverage the threat expertise within Trend Micro to deliver always-on support and help customers to prepare for the possibility of an attack, or quickly if they’ve already been hit.”
There is no silver bullet when it comes to ransomware protection; it requires a holistic approach and Trend Micro delivers ransomware protection across 4 key layers:
“Trend Micro is now taking their industry leadership to a new level by offering stronger solutions to combat ransomware,” said John Dickson, Director of IT Infrastructure, RNDC. “Offering an all-inclusive solution and custom hotline to any enterprise customer or consumer dealing with ransomware along with upgrades to existing products will help further protect their customers in this global, digital age.”
Trend Micro delivers enhanced central visibility of how ransomware is impacting an organization – identifying ransomware delivered through email, malicious URLs, a network breach or server compromise. This enables incidents to be more rapidly investigated and resolved, and enables ransomware trends to be tracked over time so that an organization’s overall security posture can be improved.
“The bottom line is that it’s more important the ever to have a multi-layered approach to security for enterprises,” said Doug Cahill, senior analyst covering cybersecurity at ESG. “Trend Micro offers an extensive set of security controls to protect enterprises from ransomware providing the visibility required to understand how they are being impacted and how they can respond to improve their security posture. Their knowledge of the complexity and sophistication of ransomware brings a level of expertise that helps organizations mitigate the risk associated with this pervasive threat.”

Worry-Free Services Advanced is designed specifically for small businesses as a cloud-based solution, with simple but powerful protection that minimizes day to day management.
