Maximum Security for GCC Residents Essential

Trend Micro Keen to Raise Awareness of Vulnerabilities at GITEX

Alarming levels of internet threats are hindering GCC residents, having the right tools for a secure web world is crucial, say security experts.

Trend Micro Incorporated (TSE: 4704, NASDAQ: TMIC), a leader in content security software and services, is using the 2008 GITEX exhibition to highlight the dangers that business and personal users are facing.

“Maximum security and online freedom is crucial for success in today’s internet era,” said Anthony O'Mara, associate Vice President Trend Micro, EMEA. “We offer the strongest real-time protection, and given the global meltdown, operating in a secure online environment should be a top business priority.”

“The region is not immune to threats, and as the fastest growing IT market in the world, the Middle East region is a magnet for fraudsters looking to capitalize on any weakness.”

 “In this year’s release of Trend Micro™ Internet Security and Trend Micro™ Internet Security Pro, we focused on developing products that offer smarter protection against data-stealing threats, along with the smallest impact on computer resources. Customers will experience up to over 40 percent lower memory usage and nearly 50 percent faster boot-up time,” said Ian Cochrane, Marketing Manager Trend Micro Middle East. “Then, by leveraging the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, Trend Micro offers our customers the strongest real-time protection against the latest Internet threats while enjoying online activities to the fullest.” 
New and Enhanced Features Help Consumers “Get Smart” About Internet Usage
The enhanced Home Network Security Management function allows users to see and remotely manage other computers in their home network through a graphical home network map and the ability to block wireless network intruders.  The newly-added Worry-Free™ Click provides an extra layer of protection by scanning for suspicious links from email, web sites and instant messages.  Spam blocking is also bolstered – regardless of volume, spam gets blocked without adversely affecting computer performance. 
- With enhanced parental controls, parents can now better tailor controls depending on the particular family member. New functionalities include the ability to control the date and time each child can go on the Internet. Parents also have the option to specify categories of information (such as home addresses, telephone numbers and passwords.) they do not wish to be sent from a computer. 
 - The Security Activity Dashboard gives customers a comprehensive and customizable snapshot of all the security activities on their computers through easy-to-use charts and graphs.  By learning more about when and how their computers can be attacked, users can surf the web more securely and intelligently. 
- The Quick Scan feature checks for threats in the places they are more likely to hide in a fraction of the time that Full Scan takes.  It works alongside the product’s state aware feature, meaning scans and updates happen only when it’s convenient for users, therefore no inconvenient in-product messages while they are watching a video, conducting a PowerPoint presentation, or playing a computer game. 
- For those who would like to extend the Trend Micro protection to their smartphones, Trend Micro Internet Security Pro offers mobile security against viruses, SMS text message spam, malware attacks, data theft and service disruptions. 
Trend Micro consumer security suites come in two variants: Trend Micro Internet Security and Trend Micro Internet Security Pro. Trend Micro Internet Security Pro offers additional features that are optimized for performance, laptop usage away from the home, and online banking and shopping.
GITEX is taking place at Dubai International Conference and Exhibition Centre (DICEC) from 19 to 23 October 2008. As part of GITEX 2008, Trend Micro can be found at stand Z-P6.
