Trend Micro Named as a Leader in Independent Research Firm’s Endpoint Security Report

Receives Highest Score in Current Offering Category

DALLAS, October 19, 2016 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in security software, today announced it received the highest score in the Current Offering category among the fifteen vendors evaluated in “The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q4 2016" report. Trend Micro believes that being named as a leader by Forrester’s report affirms the merits of having a complete endpoint protection portfolio and marks yet another point of independent industry validation of Trend Micro’s technology leadership.

Trend Micro received the highest score possible in the Product Roadmap and Go-To Market Strategy criteria, garnering an overall score of 4.7 out of 5 in the strategy category. The report also states, “Overall, Trend Micro’s current portfolio, combined with its short- and long-term road maps, aligns very well with the current and (likely) future needs of enterprise buyers."

“Receiving these scores in an independent evaluation from such a well-respected research firm is an important recognition and I believe it is confirmation that our endpoint security suite delivers the protection enterprises need," said Kevin Simzer, executive vice president, sales, marketing and business development for Trend Micro. “Customer references were also taken into account, and it is my view that the user feedback further validates our ‘maximum protection, minimum impact’ value proposition."

In addition to providing the best endpoint security technology available today, Trend Micro has the right vision to develop sophisticated techniques to combat the threats of tomorrow. Earlier this month, the company released its new class of cyber threat defense, XGen™ endpoint security, which complements Trend Micro’s proven optimized protection with high-fidelity machine learning. Using a single or incomplete set of techniques can leave gaps in a company’s security posture, but the evolving threat landscape demands a comprehensive, multi-layered endpoint protection strategy. This is exactly what XGen™ offers. With 28 years of experience and more than 155 million endpoints protected, this latest release demonstrates Trend Micro’s unwavering commitment to innovation in the area of endpoint security.
