InterScan Messaging Security v8.0 was purpose built as a hybrid SaaS email security solution, integrating in-the-cloud protection of SaaS security services with an on-premise virtual appliance, all managed in one console.  As a result, email threats are stopped closest to their source; ensuring award winning email privacy while achieving significant management overhead, network bandwidth and data-center consolidation cost savings.

InterScan Web Security delivers comprehensive, timely protection against Web-based threats such as spyware and bots. By incorporating Trend Micro's in-the-cloud Web threat protection as an additional layer of defense, InterScan Web Security includes real-time Web reputation, content scanning and URL filtering capabilities to secure organizations against today's latest Web threats.

"We downloaded the virtual appliance software, created ISOs and installed the appliance on a bare metal server in our lab," SC Magazine's reviewer told readers. "The install was actually much easier than one would anticipate, and once loaded, we used the web-based user interface to do all the configuration." SC Magazine also noted that the solution had "All the tools and options you need. An enterprise-worthy solution that we make our Recommended product this month."

"We are proud of the continued recognition of our Gateway products by numerous labs such as SC Magazine which are authorities in the information security field," said John Maddison, executive general manager of datacenter at Trend Micro. "The solution's in-the-cloud reputation abilities, powered by our Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ infrastructure, gives customers a very mature and strong interface, reporting and deployment options."
