Trend Micro Partners with RM Education to Bring Worry-Free Security to Schools, Academies and Colleges

Partnership will expand Trend Micro’s reach and improve cyber protection for education institutions nationwide


London, 14th June 2017 - Trend Micro has announced a new partnership with RM Education which will help even more UK schools benefit from industry leading web, messaging and cloud security.

The agreement will help Trend Micro expand its reach in a fast-growing sector, thanks to RM Education’s strong customer base.

Even more importantly, it will bring peace of mind to schools, academies and colleges across the country – all of whom are facing a growing threat from cyberspace.

Like their counterparts in many industries, IT managers in the education sector are having to manage an uptick in targeted attacks, from the recent WannaCry ransomware, spam, phishing and other threats with limited resources.

RM Education will therefore be able to offer its customers three of Trend Micro’s most popular and full-featured offerings to help combat the rising tide of threats: Worry-Free Advanced; Worry-Free Services Advanced; and Cloud App Security.

Together they offer a comprehensive range of threat protection for organisations, no matter where they are on their journey to the cloud. Capabilities include advanced protection from ransomware, spam, targeted attacks, and zero-day threats across PCs, mobile devices and cloud-based applications such as G Suite for Education and Office 365 suite.

There’s also simple, centralised management, protection against accidental or deliberate data loss and Trend Micro’s dedicated 24/7 support, featuring access to advanced engineers.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with one of the biggest and most successful technology providers in the education sector,” says Joe Ashton, Regional Sales Leader at Trend Micro.
“This deal will not only give Trend Micro a great opportunity to reach even more customers in this important market, but also provides schools and colleges with industry leading protection from the full range of online threats, whereas in the past they may have been left exposed by under-powered solutions”, Ashton added.

The three Trend Micro offerings will be co-branded with RM Education through the Trend Micro Licensing Management Platform – a web-based tool which simplifies the process of creating, managing and reporting customer licences.

"RM are delighted to be partnering with Trend Micro to offer schools, colleges and academies enhanced endpoint and email protection, ensuring data is protected against the known and unknown threats that the education sector is commonly exposed to", says Phil Reid, Product Manager, RM Education.
