Trend Micro Advocates Layered Approach to Messaging Security

Trend Micro this week took the wraps off new versions of its messaging security wares--InterScan Messaging Security Suite and the InterScan Messaging Security Appliance--both of which integrate antispam and antiphishing capabilities with antivirus and anti-spyware protection.

An interesting thing about this release is that Trend Micro has tightly integrated its products with Exchange 2007 in terms of working with existing protections and functions. This helps minimize the impact on performance of the server (critical if you're running multipronged e-mail protection on the mail server) and makes the experience more seamless from the user's perspective (junk goes in the junk folder, and so on).

The company also launched InterScan Messaging Hosted Security, a managed messaging security service for enterprise clients. The vendor says these products are key elements of a multilayered messaging security strategy essential to companies that want comprehensive protection from Internet-borne threats.

The new InterScan Messaging Security rollouts apply a number of techniques, including two patent-pending technologies, customer-specific reputation services and image-spam detections, to help businesses defend against an evolving list of threats.
