Trend Micro and Windows Server 2012 Essentials Provide Security that Fits Small Businesses

Trend Micro and Microsoft join forces to help small businesses grow, securely

CUPERTINO, Calif., Jan 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704), a global cloud security leader, today is addressing the increasingly complex threat landscape small businesses face due to the impact of mobile devices and cloud applications.  With the Trend Micro™ Worry-Free™ Business Security solutions in the Windows Server 2012 Essentials dashboard and with new Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security 8, which supports Windows 8, Trend Micro is giving solution providers and small businesses purpose-built security solutions.   

Through an integrated approach that protects data, promotes flexible work styles, and simplifies the path to the cloud, Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials gives small businesses the power to grow.  Specially designed with small businesses in mind that are purchasing their first server, Windows Server 2012 Essentials is a central server that can automate important activities like online data backup and protection of computers; allow teams to easily share and organize business documents; provide a platform for running line-of-business applications; and provide remote access to data from any Internet-connected location or device, so businesses can spend less time and money worrying about technology and more on satisfying their customers.

Malware is still a threat to small business, and any infected endpoint or server can bring the business to a halt.  Uptime of IT is critical for a small business so they can focus on running their core business. Small businesses purchasing their first server, such as Windows Server 2012 Essentials, need security to protect the server, data and core business. That is why Trend Micro provides Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security solutions to small businesses to protect data and ensure business productivity with market leading security.  Now Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security solutions are combined with the Windows Server 2012 Essentials hybrid cloud server management dashboard, providing simplified management, and endpoint, server and web threat protection for a variety of devices, no matter how they are connected.  This provides unified access for users to manage their entire business and security in one place. IT management costs are reduced with this integration, since no additional server purchase is required.  With simplified IT management small businesses can focus their time, money and effort on growing their business, not on IT security.

"Trend Micro is taking advantage of the built-in ability to include their offerings in the single management console in Microsoft Windows Server 2012 Essentials," said David Fabritius, Product Marketing Manager, Server and Tools, at Microsoft. "This enables ease of management of the entire IT infrastructure, including security, reducing costs for channel partners and small businesses."

"We continue to recommend Trend Micro solutions because of their commitment to bringing solutions built for small businesses to market," said Kevin Royalty of Total Care Consulting.  "Their relationship with Microsoft around Windows Server 2012 reinforces this commitment.  I have confidence in the partnership with Trend Micro.  Their solutions are truly Worry-Free and have provided easy to manage security for dozens of my customers."

"Trend Micro is committed to delivering products that best serve small businesses.  By working with Microsoft to integrate Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services and Windows Server 2012 Essentials, Trend Micro small business customers benefit from cloud computing and mobile applications while feeling confident that their information is safe. It's the must-have security for small businesses," said Magi Diego, director, SMB Marketing at Trend Micro.

Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security solutions feature industry-leading anti-malware and data protection. They give users peace of mind, knowing that their server, their business data, and their devices are all protected. It is protection that can grow as the business grows without needing to increase IT staff.  The solutions provide a secure, centralized, web-based management console, integrated into the Windows Server Essentials dashboard, so users can manage all their devices from anywhere and always feel confident that data is safe. With Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security solutions, machines are protected from viruses, spyware, spam, malicious websites, and more. 

Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security 8

"Today we have so many workers that work outside of our offices and sites," said Leo Bordon, information technology analyst at Halton Children's Aid Societies. "With Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security, protecting our very distributed workforce has become much more automatic and, therefore, easier. If we change security rules, the changes are pushed to all of the clients, including the 30 or 40 remote workers. Version 8 seems very much like the previous version; it remains an easy tool to use and configure. We can see that Trend Micro puts thought into this—and as a result they make the solution simple to configure properly."

Now available, Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security 8, which adds to Windows 8 security and provides fast, effective, and simple protection against viruses, cybercriminals, and data loss, so businesses can focus on their business, instead of worrying about Internet security. Worry-Free Business Security solutions provide effective protection with minimal impact on computer performance by leveraging the Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™-the same infrastructure that safeguards all our customers, from Fortune 500 enterprises to millions of consumers.
