Combating Cyber Threats and Data Loss for Businesses, Consumers
Company's CEO unveils comprehensive mobile security offerings at Mobile World
DALLAS and BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 24, 2014
DALLAS and BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- At the Mobile World
Congress today, Internet security pioneer Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704;
TSE: 4704) revealed a set of solutions to combat the unprecedented array of
cyber attacks that are continually victimizing individuals and enterprises via
mobile platforms. The new solutions will help mitigate threats to mobile
networks and devices, including product enhancements to support enterprises
and consumers alike.
At Mobile World Congress 2014 (Hall 6 – Booth 6L61), Trend Micro CEO and
co-founder Eva Chen along with other Trend Micro experts will share the
company's vision for mobile security, as well as launch three new solutions
that span enterprise and consumer markets.
These innovative solutions are designed to defend against fast-evolving,
sophisticated threats to provide IT administrators with greater control over
corporate devices and offer consumers an enhanced user experience. The
oSafe Mobile WorkForce provides secure mobile access to corporate data from
mobile devices and an improved user experience, while providing the mobile
user data through a remote operating system delivered to their mobile
oTrend Micro Mobile Security is a multi-platform security solution to
secure users' data and privacy on Google Android, Apple iOS and Amazon
Kindle devices. The solution provides first-rate secure web browsing,
privacy guidance for Facebook settings, threat protection and lost device
protection, data backup and parental controls.
oMobile App Reputation is the world's first mobile app evaluation service
that identifies new and existing malware verifies the reputations of
mobile applications and provides threat defense during downloads. The
Mobile App Reputation scans, blocks and identifies millions of hazardous
apps from a variety of global online sources and has played a pivotal role
in detecting and thwarting malicious apps' damage at the BlackBerry app
store, BlackBerry World.
"Mobile threats continue to grow in intensity and sophistication, and Trend
Micro is committed to utilizing our proven expertise to address these
challenges," said Chen. "In 2014, mobile will become the attack vector of
choice for cyber criminals, as the number of Android threats alone is expected
to climb to more than 3 million. As cloud-based applications and BYOD policies
become mainstream, both employees' and companies' sensitive data are at risk.
Our comprehensive solutions will keep this information safe without impeding
the mobile experience."
Trend Micro is at the forefront of mobile threat research, identifying where
attacks will come from and how users can best defend themselves. In Trend
Micro's 2013 Mobile Threat Report, threat researchers reported that mobile
threats are moving beyond apps and Android's vulnerabilities and are
inconsistent with industry standards, developing a less secure mobile
ecosystem. In 2013, TrendLabs researchers predicted that malicious and
high-risk Android malware would exceed 1 million by the year's end – a figure
that took PC malware a decade to reach. Now, TrendLabs predicts that figure
will reach 3 million in 2014.
The effectiveness of Trend Micro solutions are reinforced through its
partnership with BlackBerry®. Trend Micro further identifies and blocks
repackaged Android apps before they are sold on the BlackBerry® World™
storefront. The Trend Micro Mobile App Reputation service identifies and flags
potential threats as either "malicious" or "high-risk" to prevent harm to
devices and networks.
"Keeping our customers protected from security concerns, such as malware,
remains a top priority at BlackBerry," said Scott Totzke, senior vice
president for Security at BlackBerry. "By leveraging Trend Micro's app
scanning capabilities with our comprehensive app vetting program, BlackBerry
Guardian, we are providing customers with another layer of protection to help
ensure that applications within our store are as safe as possible."
