Trend Micro has announced the launch of Worry-Free Business Security Professional; a new, easy to manage security product that aims to give Australian and New Zealand small and medium sized business (SMBs) peace of mind and total control over the security of their IT systems.
With the growing use of cloud-based consumer applications in the workplace, application visibility is essential to understand network risks. Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Professional builds on the company’s successful Worry-Free Business Security Suite by extending support to tablets and smart phones, also enabling web access control. It incorporates Trend Micro™ InterScan™ Web Security, a cloud based service that protects employees from web based threats on any device while in the office or on the road.
“Trend Micro Worry-Free Professional is a product we created locally for our SMB market,” says Mark Sinclair, Director, Small-Medium Sized Business, Trend Micro ANZ. “We know that in Australia and New Zealand most infections are web based – and that our customers would benefit from the one fast, simple and effective product to combat security threats.
“As the workforce becomes more mobile and social media and cloud service adoption increases, the SMB IT environment is becoming much more complex. Our aim is to help our customers take advantage of this new reality whilst ensuring they are fully protected,” continues Mark.
“We’ve already implemented Worry-Free Business Security Professional with several local customers across the region and are looking forward to working with many more, particularly with the free trial offer,” concludes Mark.
“Worry-Free Business Security Professional works particularly well for those companies with staff that are often offsite using mobile devices or terminal servers,” saysDean Robertson, IT Systems Consultant at Bendigo IT. “The value we’re seeing in Worry Free Business Security Professional is the level of insight and visibility it gives our customers into their traffic, activity, and online behaviour which in turn helps them to develop the most appropriate IT security policy.”
Devices now covered include PCs, Macs, laptops, servers, point of sale devices, USB drives, tablets and smart phones. Other features include:
- Easy installation and simple to use – no IT expertise required
