Trend Micro helps firms 'embrace consumerisation'
Dubai, July 27, 2011
Trend Micro a global cloud security leader, is helping organisations embrace consumerisation and unlock full business potential, the company said.
As personal and professional lives become more intertwined, employees are using their own consumer-grade tablets, smartphones and PCs for work – regardless of company policies.
“The consumerisation of IT carries with it a unique blend of strategic and operational challenges. The lack of a planned approach to consumerisation creates security risk, financial exposure and a management nightmare for IT. Despite these risks, it represents a great opportunity for organisations of all sizes to drive increases in productivity, business agility, and customer and employee satisfaction,” said Rik Ferguson, director of security and research at Trend Micro.
“With Mobile Security 7, IT personnel can begin to meet these challenges and allow their companies to take full advantage of the benefits from consumerisation.”
Trend Micro Mobile Security 7 for enterprises/businesses extends protection beyond traditional PCs to secure data on a wide range of consumer-grade mobile devices, such as Android devices, iPhones and iPads. With threat prevention, data protection, and mobile device management under a single point of control, Trend Micro Mobile Security 7 enables organisations to protect data, limit data loss incidents and reduce the operational costs of managing employee-owned mobile devices.
Trend Micro Mobile Security 7 is available as a standalone solution for businesses, as plug-in for Trend Micro Enterprise Security for Endpoints Light, or as part of the following security suites: Trend Micro Enterprise Security for Endpoints Advanced, Trend Micro Enterprise Security for Endpoints & Mail Servers, Trend Micro Enterprise Security Suite – all of which include Trend Micro OfficeScan as a key component. -TradeArabia News Service
