Security powered by leading threat research

As a leading voice in the fight against cybercrime, we work tirelessly to discover key insights that allow us to protect 500K+ companies worldwide from hundreds of millions of threats daily.

Gathering the latest threat intelligence from around the world, Trend Micro Research continuously explores the threat landscape to bring you the trusted insights you need to withstand threats now and in the future.

Cybersecurity landscape

We focus on the critical components of today’s cybersecurity landscape.

Early, precise threat detection

Cyber Threats

Powered by 100s of global threat researchers and insights from cybersecurity solutions spanning cloud, web, email, network, server, endpoint, mobile, and IoT/IIoT environments, our solutions give you the broadest security and threat coverage.

Early, precise threat detection

The Internet of Things (IoT)

In 2020 alone, we detected over 3.5B suspicious events on home networks. This intelligence helps us understand not only the threats targeting these environments, but also the devices being targeted and how to best protect them.

Early, precise threat detection


Understand your enterprise risk at-a-glance, and dive deep into specific risk factors. Automated risk assessments, security posture evaluations, and industry benchmarking all come together to allow you to identify security priorities that map to business goals.

Early, precise threat detection

IIoT and OT

We’re actively investing in IIoT & OT research, identifying threat actors and their methods and how to protect against them with new, advanced cybersecurity solutions.

Early, precise threat detection

Targeted Attacks

Targeted attacks and APTs continue to be a major issue, and our researchers are constantly analyzing the entire attack chain life cycle to better understand how hackers evolve their tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs).

Early, precise threat detection

Cybercriminal Undergrounds

Located around the globe and also working locally for deep regional understanding, our researchers have invaluable insights into cybercriminal undergrounds and how to thwart their efforts by enhancing products and working with law enforcement.

Early, precise threat detection

AI and Machine Learning

Advanced attack methods require advanced detection approaches. Built on experience using AI & ML in our solutions since 2005, our data scientists understand what type of AI works best in what situation, enabling us to deliver better results.

Early, precise threat detection

Future Threats

Our forward-looking threat research team evaluates the ever-changing computing landscape to predict potential threats and challenges while also mapping out viable security strategies and approaches.
