Trend Micro New Offering Enables Telecom Provides to Push a Security Layer Across Users’ Digital Life

Trend Micro Consumer Connect product stops threats before they can
compromise smart home or mobile devices

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trend
Micro Incorporated
(TYO:
4704
; TSE:
4704
), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced a
comprehensive security suite designed for telecom companies to deploy to
better protect their users. This suite protects customers’ whole digital
life against known and unknown threats by laying a virtual security
layer around devices. Trend Micro Consumer Connect is highly scalable,
easy to integrate and simple to deploy, adding a competitive advantage
for leading telecom providers.

With 5G set to drive a new era of IoT adoption*, telecoms have a unique
opportunity to add value by protecting their customers. Trend
Micro research predicts
an IoT “worm war” will emerge this year, as
hackers compete to compromise home devices including routers,
conscripting them into botnets like the notorious Mirai campaigns that
led to some of the biggest DDoS attacks ever recorded.

“Smart home device sales are expected to reach $1.3bn by 2022[2],
but cyber-criminals are primed to take advantage of design flaws and
insecure configuration to hijack equipment and use it in damaging DDoS,
info-stealing and other attacks,” said Akihiko Omikawa, executive vice
president IoT security for Trend Micro. “Our new suite securely lets
Telecom providers help their customers lock their smart homes against
intruders. That’s great news for consumers and our telecom partners, who
get a highly flexible, optimizable solution from a committed partner
which will help to drive competitive advantage.”

Trend Micro Consumer Connect combines endpoint protection, network
defense and data security capabilities, leveraging Trend Micro’s
industry leading Smart Protection Network for global threat
intelligence. A handy smartphone app provides visibility and control
where users need it most, enabling them to check which devices are
protected.

It protects against ransomware, zero-day threats, info-stealing trojans,
crypto-mining, and other online threats designed to compromise IoT
endpoints, covering all smart home devices plus PCs and mobiles.

Telecom partners also benefit from Trend Micro’s unbeatable end-to-end
support. Features include: simple API-based integration into the
partner’s infrastructure and processes; flexible solution to align to
customers’ needs; a security dashboard to help partners better
understand their customers; exceptional support throughout the customer
journey; and built-in marketing toolkits to drive ARPU and business
growth.

Trend Micro will introduce its new integrated security suite at
Mobile World Congress
(MWC) in Barcelona, February 25-28, 2019. This
flexible solution aligns to customers’ needs and all under a single
subscription. To find out more visit
