Trend Micro commits messaging security support for IBM Lotus Notes/Domino 6.5 and IBM operating systems


Trend Micro Inc., a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software and services, announced support for IBM Lotus Domino 6.5. Trend Micro(tm) ScanMail(tm) for Lotus Notes version 2.6, an integrated native Lotus Domino antivirus and content security product designed to significantly improve customers' ability to thwart viruses, worms, and other malicious content. The product can block or remove unwanted/unsolicited emails before they enter the corporate network -- even before the virus signatures are positively identified using Trend Micro's Enterprise Protection Strategy.

ScanMail version 2.6 extends Trend Micro's Domino 6.5 support for the Microsoft(tm) Windows(tm), Linux(tm), and Solaris(tm) platform and it is available today for customers running Domino 6.5. Support for the AIX, AS/400 and S390 for Domino 6.5 on ScanMail will be available in the early October time frame.

"Lotus Notes and Domino 6.5 continues the IBM tradition of offering unmatched security and we're happy that Trend Micro joins us in enhancing customers' messaging and collaboration environment, " said Ken Bisconti, Vice President, Lotus Workplace Products, IBM Lotus Software. "Security will play a vital role in our Workplace strategy and Trend Micro with ScanMail will offer our customers even more value."

ScanMail can filter out unwanted email traffic using customizable policies/rules to assess the content of inbound and outbound email messages.

ScanMail for Lotus Notes version 2.6 continues support of Trend Micro's Enterprise Protection Strategy, which provides IT administrators with timely, expert policies that can be quickly deployed to help prevent the spread of today's blended threats such as NIMDA and SOBIG, even before a pattern file is available. EPS helps minimize the impact of virus outbreaks in enterprise networks and allows corporations to continue operation with minimal down-time or impact to their business.

"Trend Micro's messaging products scan for malicious content and block unsolicited email from entering enterprise networks to ensure business continuity for mutual customers of IBM and Trend Micro -- we provide more comprehensive platforms support than any other anti-virus vendor in the market today, and we are the only vendor now delivering dynamically created policies specifically designed for outbreak prevention in every product," said Richard Ku, Product Group Manager, Client-Server Messaging.
