DALLAS, April 2, 2014

DALLAS, April 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704;
TSE: 4704), a global leader in security software and solutions, today
announced that Trend Micro™ Deep Discovery™ 3.5 earned the top score for
overall breach detection rate in NSS Labs' Breach Detection Systems (BDS)
Group Test. Trend Micro also had the second lowest cost of ownership among the
field. The NSS Security Value Map™ and Comparative Analysis reports evaluated
threat detection appliances from six global security companies.

"Earning the highest rating in threat detection from a well-respected testing
organization, such as NSS Labs, re-confirms our leadership in fast-evolving
security challenges," said Eva Chen, CEO, Trend Micro. "Trend Micro Deep
Discovery supports a comprehensive approach to security that enables
organizations to protect data, communication and intellectual property in a
cost-effective manner. As our industry continues to be overrun with marketing
hype around defense against targeted attacks, this validation of Trend Micro's
capabilities illustrates to security pros the advantages we deliver."

As advanced threats and targeted attacks continue to surge, the NSS Labs
report provides customers with an impartial, third-party resource confirming
Deep Discovery as one of the most effective threat detection solutions within
a reasonable operating expense. Trend Micro's 99.1 percent score in this
testing secured a "recommended" rating from NSS Labs. In addition, Deep
Discovery registered zero false positives and received a 100 percent rating
for detecting email-based malware and exploits.

Trend Micro's exceptional performance from a single appliance is another point
of distinction that creates efficiencies in terms of costs. Deep Discovery's
overall total cost of ownership was 25 percent less expensive than the test
group average.

Deep Discovery's leadership in threat detection is bolstered by the hundreds
of enterprise and government customers worldwide that have relied on its
capabilities since its launch in 2012, including the Republic National
Distributing Company, the second largest distributor of premium wine and
spirits in the U.S.

"In its first two months on our network, Deep Discovery has spotted and
stopped 5,000 anonymous events on our WAN that were not caught by any other
security layer," said John Dickson, director, IT Infrastructure, Republic
National Distributing Company. "Each of those events could have potentially
led to a major outbreak such as Conficker. Trend Micro has proven beyond a
shadow of a doubt that its technology works as advertised."
