CUPERTINO, Calif., June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --With the growth of web
applications combined with ever-increasing threats, Trend Micro Incorporated
(TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) is empowering organizations to address the need for
advanced, continuous security across all web applications. Trend Micro™ Web
App Security is a first-of-its-kind comprehensive service offering that
provides enterprise-grade security with proven vulnerability detection and
protection for web applications and the platforms they are deployed on
throughout an organization. Aligning with Trend Micro's vision that all Web
application communications can be secure, the cloud-based service includes the
ability to issue unlimited SSL certificates and can be calibrated to the
specific security needs of each application.

"You can't get a clear picture of your vulnerabilities without both automated
and manual testing, and you need to test the whole stack,"said Wendy Nather,
research director of the Enterprise Security Practice at451 Research.
"Integrating all of this testing makes it much easier for the enterprise to be
consistent and thorough in its risk assessments."

A part of the Trend Micro Cloud and Data Center Security Solution, the
comprehensive service delivers detection capabilities across web applications
and the platform environments they are deployed on. Detection extends beyond
vulnerabilities alone to include web application malware checking and web
reputation management giving organizations a complete picture of their web
security posture. Web App Security also includes automatic protection at the
platform level and native integration with leading web application firewalls
to provide a closed loop of protection that is simple to manage and easy to
deploy. By offering an intelligent approach to web application scanning that
includes both automated and expert analysis, false positives can be avoided
and organizations empowered to focus on actual areas of concern, including
compliance auditors for regulations like PCI and HIPAA.

"For organizations that face rigorous regulations, such as HIPAA in the health
care environment, securing data is essential," said Carl Minear,
administrative director of technology infrastructure, Florida Hospital.
"Ensuring that our information is safe when made accessible through a Web
application can be a security and cost challenge, but Trend Micro provides
effective and affordable security for all of our sensitive clinical
applications through a single, integrated offering."

Incorporated directly into the offering, unlimited SSL certificates provide
organizations with the peace-of-mind that their applications are protected
with enterprise-class security without the significant costs incurred from
traditional vendors. Trend Micro SSL certificates are widely trusted across
all major browsers on PC, Mac and mobile devices. In addition,
enterprise-class management is tightly integrated into the central console of
Web App Security for a seamless administrative experience.

"As attacks grow in sophistication and volume, our team is working diligently
to ensure that customers are ready," said Kevin Simzer, senior vice president,
marketing and business development, Trend Micro. "Providing comprehensive
detection and protection capabilities through a scalable cloud service helps
to set Trend Micro apart from traditional offerings. Organizations deploying
Web App Security are able to benefit from proven security combined with a
compelling package of cost-effective detection, protection and SSL

Web App Security was developed with Trend Micro's leading security
capabilities in conjunction with two recent technology acquisitions. Detection
functionality is supported by the acquisition of an established Web
application scanning service, IndusGuard from Indusface. With more than 500
existing customers and a veteran team of Web security experts, this
acquisition complements Trend Micro's current Web security expertise. The SSL
component of the solution stems from the acquisition of startup
AffirmTrust—from the founders of GeoTrust—which provides industry-first access
to unlimited SSL certificates, including the highly secure Extended Validation
(EV) certificate.

Trend Micro Web App Security is immediately available in North America, with a
global rollout planned for 2014. For additional insight and technical
