blended threats and platform-independent Web-based attacks on the Mac
platform. It integrates with Trend Micro OfficeScan

allows Trend Micro to give enterprise customers – many of whom are
adding the Mac platform to their corporate networks – superior
management of Mac desktops, laptops and servers through the same Web
console that manages Windows clients and servers.
The product includes Web reputation, a key component of
the Trend Micro(TM) Smart Protection Network(TM) infrastructure,
protecting businesses from Web threats for over two years through one
of the largest domain-reputation databases in the world. The technology
prevents users and applications from accessing malicious or infiltrated
Web sites while both on and off the corporate network.

exist, regardless of the operating system and as more enterprises adopt
multiple platforms, they need flexible security that adapts to their
needs," said Thomas Miller, general manager for the enterprise business
unit, Trend Micro. "Trend Micro has been conducting extensive OS X
threat research for over seven years and is currently the only vendor
protecting the Mac against native and cross platform Web-based threats."
Key features of Trend Micro Security for Mac include:
- Group policy management of up to 1,000 Mac endpoints within OfficeScan.
- Streamlined Cocoa client user-interface with hassle free auto-registration to the server.
- Location aware Web reputation policies so employees are protected both on and off the corporate network.
- Protection for both the host Mac OS system and any Windows virtual machines.
