Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced the launch of Trend Micro Email Security, an innovative cybersecurity solution that leverages a blend of cross-generational threat techniques, including machine learning, sandbox analysis, data loss prevention (DLP), and various other methods to stop all email-based threats.

In today’s digital landscape, email remains a mission-critical communication channel for businesses, but it is equally susceptible to an ever-increasing array of threats, including ransomware and business email compromise (BEC). According to Trend Micro’s Mid-Year Cybersecurity Report, in the MEA region during the first half of the year, the company’s solutions detected and blocked over 475 million threats, of which 281 million were email threats. These alarming figures underscore the need for the adoption of a robust email security solution to navigate through the evolving threat landscape.
“In the day and age where digital communication serves as the lifeblood of organizations, email has risen to prominence as the central conduit of information flow. However, it has also become the primary target for a myriad of relentless cyber threats,” said Dr Moataz Bin Ali, Regional Vice President and Managing Director, MMEA, Trend Micro. “Amid this volatile threat landscape, Trend Micro stands as a vigilant guardian of digital security. This product launch is a testament to Trend Micro’s unwavering commitment to online safety, ensuring that organizations can thrive in the digital era with confidence and peace of mind.”
