The two established security leaders intend to leverage their respective strengths in the appliance and antivirus/content security marketplaces to provide businesses with content security solutions designed to be robust, rapidly deployable, easily maintained and have unmatched performance.
"Trend Micro’s proven innovation and market leadership in antivirus and content security solutions brings an important strategic component to Nokia’s best-of-breed network security system approach," said Dan MacDonald, vice president of product management and marketing, Nokia Internet Communications. "Together Nokia and Trend Micro will address the ubiquitous business problem of email borne exploits by delivering a unique, secure content management system that customers have been looking for and that offers key attributes like auto updating, statistical protection and unmatched performance and reliability."
The Nokia-Trend Micro purpose-built, secure content management system, Nokia Message Protector SC6600, aims to provide easy to deploy, defense-in-depth email protection through statistical virus protection, SPAM rejection and intelligent exploit rejection. The system is designed to ensure maximum integrity and uptime of the enterprise messaging infrastructure and internal tests show that it can scan more than 120,000 messages per hour. The Nokia Message Protector SC6600 will be exclusively available from Nokia and backed by its "First call, Final resolution" support network to ensure that customers have a single point of contact for all support issues.
