You Need a Network Defense to Thwart a Targeted Attack

Trend Micro messaging security products provide protection against targeted attacks with enhanced web reputation, a new detection engine, and new threat analysis appliance to block highly targeted email attacks by using exploit detection and sandboxing. Integration of these components provides a custom defense that enables you to detect, analyze, adapt and respond to targeted attacks. The following defenses are found in:

Enhanced Web Reputation

  • Web reputation is powered by the big data analytics and predictive technology of Smart Protection Network global threat intelligence
  • SmartScan technology scans URLs embedded in emails and attachments and blocks URLs leading to malicious sites

Advanced Threat Scan Engine

  • Detects advanced malware in PDF, MS Office, and other documents using static and heuristic logic to detect and examine abnormalities in addition to known and zero-day exploits
  • Scans the Lotus Domino mail store for targeted threats that may have passed through before protection was available
  • Quarantines suspicious attachments for automatic sandbox execution analysis to occur in-line without impacting the delivery of majority of messages (requires integration with optional Trend Micro™ Deep Discovery Advisor)

Deep Discovery Advisor
When integrated with ScanMail, the optional Deep Discovery Advisor:

  • Provides automatic in-depth simulation and analysis of potentially malicious attachments including executables and common office documents in a secure sandbox environment
  • Allows customers to create and analyze multiple fully custom target images that precisely match their host environments
  • Analyzes logs of Trend Micro products and third-party solutions combined with Trend Micro threat intelligence. In-depth insights support risk-based incident assessment, containment and remediation
  • Issues custom security updates for adaptive protection and remediation by ScanMail, Trend Micro products, and third-party security layers

Trend Micro ScanMail for IBM Domino runs directly on the Domino server to keep Domino users, systems, and data safe. Accordingly, this native Domino application continues to support the widest range of Domino operating environments in the industry—Windows, Linux (on x86 hardware and IBM System z), AIX, i5 OS, z/OS and Solaris.
