DALLAS, May 6, 2014

DALLAS, May 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE:
4704), the global leader in small business content security^1, today announced
upgrades to Trend Micro™ Worry- Free™ Business Security, with version 9.0 to
equip small businesses with enterprise-grade security capabilities that
address and mitigate threats across endpoints, from desktops to mobile. The
offering is the only small business solution widely available in the market
that provides comprehensive user protection with integrated mobile device
security with the option of cloud management.

"Since small businesses are experiencing a surge in BYOD, Trend Micro is
committed to providing solutions with dynamic, yet affordable, security
capabilities that deliver greater functionality and ease-of-use across their
operation," said Eric Skinner, vice president, solutions marketing, Trend
Micro. "With integrated mobile device protection, Worry-Free Business Security
provides a comprehensive approach to security, whether in the office or
on-the-go. We've also kept our channel partners in mind with a cloud-based
management tool that makes it easier and more cost-effective to provide
security support for their customers."

According to IDC, from 2012 to 2013, the use of BYOD smartphones in U.S. small
businesses increased from 53 percent to 88 percent^2. During the same period,
BYOD tablet usage increased from 30 percent to 56 percent. These findings
demonstrate the growing need for small businesses to evolve their security
strategy and provide protection for all endpoints—from PCs and Macs, to mobile

Additional studies show that the stakes are higher than ever given the influx
of mobile threats. Threat research findings released in March 2014 by Trend
Micro reveal that high-risk mobile malware apps have reached 2 million since
tracking began in 2004. The one million mark was met just six months ago. In
comparison, it took 22 years for PC malware to reach the same number.

To address these trends, Worry-Free Business Security 9.0 provides new
features including:

  oIntegration with Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync for simplified mobile
    device management
  oEnhanced security policies including Remote Wipe and Device Access Control
    capabilities to securely remove all data from BYOD devices in the event of
    theft or data breach
  oSupport for Windows 8.1, Microsoft Exchange 2013, and improved security
    for Mac platforms
  oUniversal performance improvements, decreasing scan and installation time
  oOverall usability and detection improvements

To support channel partners, Trend Micro offers Trend Micro™ Worry-Free™
Remote Manager, a cloud-based tool that provides centralized management for
their on-premise and hosted customers to help increase profitability by
reducing management and service costs.
