Marlow, UK – 15th March 2013 – Trend Micro, a global cloud security leader, today announced that Deep Discovery, developed specifically to help businesses mitigate the growing risk from sophisticated targeted attacks, was recognised as the best new product at the Network Computing Awards in London.
Trend Micro received the award on the 14th March at the annual Network Computing Magazine awards. The award is particularly meaningful as it is voted for by the readers of the magazine, Trend Micro customers, partners and people within the industry.
“Winning this award further reinforces the value that Deep Discovery brings to our customers”, said James Walker, Senior Enterprise Product Manager for EMEA at Trend Micro. “Deep Discovery uses industry leading technology to protect businesses from targeted attacks and advanced malware which traditional anti-malware solutions just cannot defend against.”
Targeted attacks represent one of the biggest challenges to government organisations and private businesses today with attacks typically designed to breach firms by stealth, infect systems with zero-day threats and lay hidden inside networks for as long as possible while lifting sensitive data.
Launched last year, Deep Discovery is one of the most comprehensive solutions of its kind, engineered specifically to not only help organizations neutralise this growing menace of targeted attacks but also offer in-depth analysis to prevent similar attacks in future. It is engineered to focus on the malicious content, suspect communications as well as the human attack behaviour to give firms the best chance of detecting targeted attacks.
Powered by Trend Micro’s pioneering cloud-based threat protection system the Smart Protection Network, Deep Discovery enables zero day and advanced malware to be detected and blocked in the cloud before it can hit the network.
In addition, reputation engine and blacklisting capabilities can detect the command and control channels used by attackers to communicate with malware which may be buried deep inside an organisation.
