Security vendor, Trend Micro, is set to announce its first anti-spyware product designed for enterprise users. The new product, called Anti-Spyware Enterprise Edition, incorporates software the company picked up in its May 2005 acquisition of InterMute and is one of multiple product announcements that Trend Micro plans to make this week.
The new enterprise anti-spyware product would give security administrators more detailed control over security settings than Trend Micro's existing anti-spyware offerings, and it would be able to automatically discover and then silently deliver software to desktops without disturbing desktop users, a senior product marketing manager with Trend Micro, Bob Hansmann, said.
Trend Micro has integrated the InterMute CWShredder software into this product, which makes it particularly effective at detecting the CoolWebSearch spyware variants.
Anti-Spyware Enterprise Edition had also been designed to work with other desktop security products, so users could adopt the product without necessarily using Trend Micro's antivirus products, Hansmann said.
An update of the company's PC-cillin Internet Security suite and an updated 3.0 version of the company's Client Server Security and Client Server Messaging Security products for small and medium-sized businesses were also expected to be announced.
PC-cillin Internet Security 2006 would include new anti-phishing features as well as improved antivirus, anti-spyware and home network protection, Trend Micro said.
A one-year subscription to Anti-Spyware Enterprise Edition is priced at $US11.55 per user for corporations with more than 500 users. Pricing for PC-cillin will remain unchanged at $US49.95, with at $US24.95 renewal price. Both products are now available.
Client Server Security for SMB 3.0 will begin shipping in November, priced at $US23.63 per user per year. Client Server Messaging Security, which includes anti-spam and anti-phishing software, is priced at $US45.15 per user per year. Trend Micro expects to begin shipping the new Client Server Security products some time in November.
