Trend Micro in cybersecurity deal
Dubai, December 3, 2013
Trend Micro, a global pioneer in security software and solutions, has partnered with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the UN’s specialised agency for ICT, in support of its Global Cybersecurity Agenda.
Under the deal, Trend Micro will provide institutional expertise and research to the ITU, in addition to resources from the company’s Internet Safety for Kids and Families initiative.
The partnership is aimed at equipping ITU’s 93 member states and more than 700 private sector entities and academic institutions, with the latest information to fight cyber threats globally.
It was commemorated at ITU Telecom World 2013 held in Bangkok recently.
This includes global threat reports, access to a worldwide network of TrendLabs researchers and threat alert updates.
“This partnership reinforces Trend Micro’s mission and commitment to making the world safe for exchanging digital information,” said Raimund Genes, the CTO, Trend Micro.
“Our open and ongoing exchange of research, resources and technology will play an important role in helping ITU inform key stakeholders about current and future cyber threats that can impact their respective constituencies,” said Genes.
Trend Micro and ITU will distribute co-branded information to key influencers and audiences on a regular basis. Alerts will be activated as needed in real-time via Escape, ITU’s secure communication portal that disseminates important information, including details about global implications and mitigation procedures for high-impact threat incidents.
ITU secretary-general Hamadoun I Touré said: “By making the latest research and resources available, Trend Micro is supporting our vision by providing expertise and resources to help people avoid being victimized by criminal and irresponsible online behaviour. They are well equipped to provide our leadership base with necessary information to protect citizens.” - TradeArabia News Service
