Stop threats before they reach you. It’s security made smarter.
The Trend Micro Smart Protection Network is a next generation cloud-client content security infrastructure designed to block threats before they reach your network. By combining Internet-based - or "in-the-cloud" - technologies with smaller, lighter-weight clients, you will have immediate access to the latest protection wherever and however you connect - from home, within your company's network or on the go.
How It Works
The Trend Micro Smart Protection Network delivers security that's smarter than conventional approaches by blocking the latest threats before they reach you. Leveraged across Trend Micro's solutions and services, the Smart Protection Network provides stronger protection while reducing your reliance on time-consuming signature-downloads.
Web Reputation Technology
- Leverages one of the largest domain-reputation databases in the world to track credibility of Web sites and pages
- Assigns reputation scores to Web domains and individual pages or links within sites since often only portions of legitimate sites are hacked
- Blocks users from accessing compromised or infected sites
Email Reputation Technology
- Validates IP addresses by checking them against a reputation database
- Assesses email sender reputation in real time
- Refines reputation ratings through continuous analysis of the IP address
- Blocks malicious emails and threats such as zombies in the cloud, before they reach you
File Reputation Technology
- Checks the reputation of each file against an extensive in-the-cloud database before permitting user access
- Utilizes high performance content delivery networks and local caching servers to ensure minimum latency during the checking process
- Leverages cloud-client architecture to decrease the size of the local pattern file, thus minimizing the “Threat of Volume”— the massive number of threats being created today
Correlation Technology with Behavior Analysis
- Correlates combinations of activities and components of a threat to determine if they are malicious
- Continuously updates multiple threat databases to ensure real time threat response
Smart Feedback Program
- A “neighborhood watch” system of community protection— 24/7 communication between Trend Micro products, research centers and technologies for "better together" security
- Automatic updates to Trend Micro’s global threat databases each time a new threat is identified on a single customer’s routing reputation check
Threat Intelligence - TrendLabs
- Trend Micro's 24/7 global network of research, service and support centers
- 1,000+ security experts worldwide providing real-time security measures designed to detect, pre-empt, and eliminate attacks
- Threat intelligence is continuously gathered through an extensive global network of honeypots, submissions, feedback loops, Web crawling technologies, customers, partners and TrendLabs threat research.
- Threat data is gathered, analyzed and correlated in real-time via queries of Trend Micro's malware knowledge databases and by TrendLabs research, service and support centers.
