InterScan Web Security as a Service

Dynamic protection against cyber threats


The rising sophistication and complexity of web threats, coupled with the new ways your employees work, have eroded the effectiveness of traditional web security solutions. In addition to blocking malicious code, inappropriate websites, and targeted attacks, security managers also need to protect an increasingly mobile workforce that demands access to new Web 2.0 and cloud-based consumer applications—all while reducing management and networking costs.

Trend Micro InterScan Web Security as a Service dynamically protects against cyber threats in the cloud, before they reach your users or network. It also delivers real-time visibility and control of employee Internet usage. Because it is located in the cloud, it protects any user, in any location, on any device—all based on a single policy that moves with the user. It eliminates the need for costly traffic backhauling or managing multiple secure web gateways at multiple sites. Also, this solution will grow flexibly with your business—without the need to purchase, manage, or maintain software or hardware.
