Web reputation, document exploit detection, sandbox execution analysis, and custom local threat intelligence allow you to create a custom defense against spear phishing attacks associated with APTs and other targeted threats.

  • Detects known and unknown exploits in PDF, MS Office and other documents
  • Performs malware execution analysis, provides custom threat intelligence, and delivers adaptive security updates via optional Deep Discovery Advisor integration
  • Stop threats from entering your environment with immediate protection based on global threat intelligence from Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network cloud-based security
