Trend Micro Inc., a global cloud security provider, announced Monday the integration of Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services into the Windows Server 2012 Essentials console to give solution providers and small businesses an integrated solution to protect users from a variety of cybercrime threats.
Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services and Windows Server 2012 Essentials, whether cloud hosted or on-premise, are purposely built with today's small businesses in mind. Together, they provide managed service providers (MSPs) and channel partners with the right infrastructure, security that fits, and support for their customers' businesses in the emerging cloud era.
"Trend Micro and Microsoft are both committed to the growing cloud-era MSP channel community, and our products serve this market," said Partha Panda, VP Global Alliances and Business Development at Trend Micro. "Both companies are leaders in this space, and we continue to be leaders by working together and delivering hosted and hybrid solutions that are easy to use and manage, and include trusted security at a lower total cost."
Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services protects data and safeguards PCs, laptops, servers, and other Windows-based devices from viruses, spyware, spam, and other web threats. The solution is designed for small and medium-sized businesses with limited IT resources, and it delivers around-the-clock updates from the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network infrastructure to identify and block new and emerging threats in the cloud before they can affect the organization.
Ideal as the first server for small businesses, Windows Server 2012 Essentials provides an easy-to use-solution to help protect data with its advanced, automated backup features. It also helps businesses organize and access information from virtually anywhere, supports the applications needed to run the business, and can help organizations quickly connect to online services that they acquire separately.
Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services is powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, the security infrastructure that stops threats in cyberspace or "in the cloud" and monitors the Internet 24/7, worldwide. The Smart Protection Network gathers and analyzes threat data, viruses, and other malware before they can reach computers. As processing is done off the system and in the cloud, Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services minimizes slow-downs by using less memory and disk space.
