Trend Micro Announces Partnership Enhancement, Showcases Solutions and Technologies for IoT Security at Hannover Messe 2019

Trend Micro participated in the 2019 edition of Hannover Messe, which, with more than 6,000 exhibiting companies and over 200,000 visitors every year, is the world’s leading trade show for industrial technology. At the event, which was held in the first week of April, the company showcased its security-focused strategy, solutions, and technologies for the internet of things (IoT).

Trend Micro Announces Partnership Enhancement in Smart Home, Factory, and Car Security

Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro, announced Trend Micro’s IoT security strategy, focusing on the areas of smart home, factory, and car, with solutions based on security intelligence. She emphasized the importance of enhancing partnerships with industry leaders to provide jointly developed security offerings.

Trend Micro’s Industrial IoT Joint Venture, TxOne Networks, Offers Sneak Peek of Solution to Securing Industrial Machinery

Trend Micro and Moxa, a leader in industrial communication and networking, previewed their first jointly developed security offering in the form of TxOne Networks. The new industrial intrusion prevention system (IPS), which is in beta version, detects and blocks common exploits and provides whitelisting control in operational technology (OT) environments. The demonstration during the presentation showed cyberattacks against programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems, which could cause operation disruption and production stoppage. It also showed how the attacks could be prevented with the jointly developed technologies such as virtual patching and protocol whitelisting control.

Trend Micro and Luxoft Partner to Secure Vehicles and Mobility Services Against Cyberattacks

Trend Micro also announced a strategic partnership with Luxoft Holding, a global digital strategy and engineering firm. The two companies will jointly introduce and deploy the Intrusion Detection System (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), a comprehensive cybersecurity solution designed to detect, mitigate, and respond to cyberattacks on connected cars.

Trend Micro Showcases CAN Bus Anomaly Detection Demonstration

At Trend Micro’s booth, the audience observed demonstrations of cyberattacks against factories and cars, and saw how Trend Micro’s solutions and technologies could prevent the attacks. For car security, the demonstration was for the detection of anomalies in the Controller Area Network (CAN) bus, which is an internal communications network that interconnects components and allows them to communicate with one another within a vehicle. The demonstration showed CAN bus attacks against advanced driver assistance (ADAS) systems, disabling a sensor that should detect something in front of the car and automatically stop it, so that the car would crash into obstacles. However, this car was equipped with Trend Micro’s local detector, so it could at least detect the anomalies.
