Trend Micro, Third Brigade team on IPS

Software plug-in for OfficeScan based on technology from start-up

Trend Micro said Tuesday it is teaming with startup Third Brigade to integrate its intrusion-prevention system capability into Trend Micro's OfficeScan endpoint-security product.

According to Ron Clarkson, Trend Micro's senior product manager, Trend Micro expects to have ready a software plug-in for OfficeScan based on the Third Brigade Deep Security product by the fourth quarter of this year.

OfficeScan 8.0, the current version of the Trend endpoint-security product, is based on a plug-in architecture that facilitates this type of software development, Clarkson says. Customers of OfficeScan 8.0 should be able to simply add the plug-in without a major upgrade.

Trend Micro indicated the arrangement with Third Brigade of Ottawa, Canada, constitutes the first OEM arrangement it has undertaken for OfficeScan 8.0. Specific pricing and naming for the OfficeScan software plug-in are not yet available.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
