Trend Micro positioned highest and furthest in the Leaders Quadrant for its ability to execute and completeness of vision in 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms

SYDNEY, 3 February 2017 –– Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced it has been placed highest and furthest in the Leaders quadrant for ability to execute and completeness of vision in Gartner, Inc.’s 2017 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP). The company has been named by Gartner as a Leader in enterprise security solutions for endpoints and servers since 20021.

“We feel that effective security requires a cross-generational blend of threat defence techniques. In my view, our placement of highest and furthest within the Leaders quadrant recognises our visionary approach to security," said Dhanya Thakkar, vice president and managing director, Asia Pacific, at Trend Micro. “We believe being positioned as a leader for so many years, demonstrates Trend Micro’s unique capability to offer the latest technology while constantly developing the necessary techniques to fight tomorrow’s threats. Our ability to protect enterprises throughout every aspect of their organisation is what sets us apart."

Trend Micro protects endpoints with XGen™ security, a blend of cross-generational threat defence techniques that intelligently applies the right technology at the right time, resulting in more effective and efficient protection against a full range of threats. Trend Micro is the first to infuse ‘high-fidelity’ machine learning into its approach – uniquely analysing files both before execution and at runtime to block those with malicious intent and using ‘noise cancellation’ features, such as census checking and whitelisting, to reduce false positives.

Trend Micro also protects server endpoints across the data centre and cloud with XGen™ security, delivering optimised protection for workloads deployed on VMware, AWS and Microsoft Azure. Managed through a single connected dashboard with full visibility across physical, virtual and cloud, Trend Micro’s hybrid cloud security solution simplifies the deployment and management of security; speeds response to sophisticated attacks and accelerates compliance with key regulations such as PCI, HIPAA and others.
