Addressing the challenges of today’s cybersecurity landscape

Cyber threats


Built on over 30 years of cybersecurity leadership, hundreds of global threat researchers, and insights across in cloud, web, email, network, server, endpoint, mobile, and IoT/IIoT/OT environments, our solutions offer the broadest attack and threat coverage.



Trend Micro™ Zero Day Initiative™ (ZDI), the world’s largest agnostic bug bounty program, delivers the best vulnerability research worldwide. Researchers identify bugs spanning OS, applications, SCADA, OT, and EVs, giving us first access to pre-disclosure vulnerabilities. Customers get 3 months of virtual patches before vendor patches are available for instant protection across all environments.

Targeted attacks


Our researchers are constantly analysing targeted attacks to better understand how adversaries’ tools, tactics, and procedures (TTPs) evolve. Based on years of adversarial and campaign intelligence, our AI models track their next steps to help customers withstand them.

AI and machine learning


Advanced attack methods require advanced detection approaches. We enhance your defences, efficiency, and detection of zero-hour threats using over 19 years of experience building AI/GenAI and ML into our solutions. Our tailored AI ensures optimal protection in every scenario.

The internet of things (IoT), industrial IoT (IIoT), and operational technology (OT)


Cyber criminals target critical infrastructure using IoT/IIoT/OT as common avenues of attack. Trend and ZDI have collected extensive threat intelligence from customers using these platforms, giving us deeper insights into attack surface threats.

Cloud infrastructure


Trend understands the attacks and threats targeting this infrastructure better than most. The cloud research team takes an attack-driven approach that begins with threat modeling to inform potential attack scenarios, with defences then built into existing and future products.

Cybercriminal undergrounds


Our researchers have invaluable insights into cybercriminal undergrounds. Decades-long partnerships with Interpol, Europol, the United Nations, the FBI, and the US Department of Homeland Security have given us early insights into cybercriminal operations while helping us make the world safer.

Future threats


Our forward-looking threat research team continually assesses the evolving cybersecurity landscape to predict potential threats while mapping out viable security strategies.
