July 10, 2009 by  

Webmaster ToolsCUPERTINO, CA – Trend Micro Inc. (TSE: 4704), has partnered with Sago Networks, a full-service IT services source, to provide Sago Networks’ and its customers a range of Trend Micro(TM) Enterprise Security products and managed service offerings.

Sago Networks has an expanding portfolio of managed services, IT solutions, data center hosting facilities, and custom solutions. The company builds in security to its three data centers and networks, as well as offering a broad range of end-to-end security solution choices. When Sago Networks moved from open source to an industry-standard Microsoft platform, it found Trend Micro to be the right security technology provider in protecting in-house assets and in helping to deliver world-class solutions to Sago customers.

“Our choice of security vendor was based on functionality, market share, ease of management, and ultimately ROI,” said Jonathan Cox, CIO of Managed Services Sago Networks. “We have a broad range of security needs and we need protection on multiple platforms including Linux, Windows, Macintosh, and mobile devices. We chose Trend Micro because they stood out from the rest in terms of offering a breadth of hosted solutions. They help us offer robust, well-rounded solutions that can meet all levels of the industry we serve.”

To protect its business, Sago Networks has chosen Trend Micro Enterprise Security solutions including:

* Trend Micro OfficeScan(TM) Client/Server Edition for PC and file server protection
* Trend Micro ScanMail(TM) for Microsoft Exchange for corporate email server protection
* Trend Micro InterScan(TM) Messaging Hosted Security for anti-spam and email protection

Sago Networks has also licensed the rights to resell the complete Trend Micro solution portfolio, including home and home office solutions, small and medium business solutions, and enterprise solutions.

“Trend Micro not only offers the right products at the right price points, but has enabled us to tailor product structures and bundled solutions that suit our reseller business model,” said Cox. “As a partner, they give us the same flexibility for managed services that our customers have come to expect from us in the telecommunications business. Today, we can offer flexible licensing models that let our customers ‘true up’ and ‘true down’ on a quarterly basis. Trend Micro solutions fit our service pricing models and help keep our operating costs under control with solutions that enable very efficient, centralized management and administration.”

Trend Micro(TM) Enterprise Security is a tightly integrated offering of content security products, services and solutions powered by the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network(TM). Together they deliver immediate protection from emerging threats while greatly reducing the cost and complexity of security management.

Powered by the Trend Micro(TM) Smart Protection Network(TM), Trend Micro Enterprise Security solutions rely on an innovative cloud-client architecture to help enterprises fight the explosion of malicious threats. To shorten the time to protection and reduce the complexity of on-site solutions, a client queries Web, email, and file reputation databases that are correlated in the cloud. Threats are stopped in real time at their source–before they impact local networks and systems.
