Trend Micro’s 30 years of success is really a story of foresight. Our innovation and ability to anticipate trends in the shifting IT landscape has not only built a global leader out of Trend Micro, but has empowered hundreds of thousands of enterprises and government organizations to go further and do more. From being the first to extend threat protection from the desktop to the server in 1991, to our initial investment in machine learning in 2005, to 2009 when we were first to market with optimized security for virtualization, and our use of artificial intelligence today, Trend Micro has continually invested in the future with a focus on making the world safe for exchanging digital information.

First to Answer the Call
Trend Micro has been a security pioneer since 1988, delivering powerful solutions that protect users, devices, servers, and networks against attacks directed at compromising electronic data. When the explosive growth in internet use during the ‘90s set up an almost unlimited set of targets for cybercriminals Trend Micro was the first to respond with security optimized for multiple environments. This continued in 2009 with the introduction of Trend Micro™ Deep Security™—bringing protection and visibility to VMware on AWS—and continues into 2019 with the introduction of a new AI-assisted Trend Micro™ Managed XDR service to help overwhelmed enterprises deal with increasingly sophisticated attacks across email, network, endpoint, server and cloud workloads.
