Shortly after using Trend Micro’s solutions, Jordan School District located a keylogger in a student’s cloud-based storage drive. Using information from Trend Micro™ Cloud App Security, they determined the student wasn’t a high schooler, but a elementary school student with advanced computer science knowledge.
“We used a Trend Micro alert to show the student that a tool he downloaded—which he thought was legitimate—came with a keylogger built in. It was very eye-opening for him,” says Bowman.
The district also stopped three ransomware attacks in the first month of deploying Trend Micro.
“We have since seen a 40% reduction in spam and a 50% reduction in phishing attempts. Trend Micro improved our security posture, and now I look like a hero,” says Bowman.
Trend Micro’s track record of constantly evolving their platforms to stay ahead of emerging threats gives the district assurance that their compliance requirements will be met. Trend Micro solutions and its platform approach also reduced the district’s latency problem and gives it more control over alerts.
“Trend Micro lets us modify and control security alerts so we can send them only to specific individuals in certain circumstances,” says Bowman.
