Trend Micro Excels in Latest Third-Party Testing of Its Network Defense Solution

NSS Labs Issues “Recommended” Status for TippingPoint TX Series in Data Center IPS Group Test


Bangalore, February 28, 2018Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, announced it earned the prestigious “Recommended” rating from NSS Labs in the Data Center IPS category. This accomplishment is the latest in a series of top ratings from NSS Labs, spanning the key disciplines of Data Center IPS, Next Generation IPS and Breach Detection Systems.

The latest achievement of Trend Micro’s TippingPoint TX Series demonstrates its ability to provide effective, high-speed inline network inspection without sacrificing performance.

“The challenges of running a modern data center demand a powerful IPS solution capable of blocking threats at high speeds without sacrificing performance,” said Don Closser, general manager of TippingPoint for Trend Micro. “We believe this recognition reinforces our ability to go beyond next-generation IPS to achieve accelerated, automated time-to-protection and deliver high performance for the most demanding network environments. Leading companies out on our TX Series is a key piece of their multi-layered, cross-generational approach to cybersecurity.”

NSS Labs rated throughput at 82,076 Mbps for IPv4 traffic, which is higher than the TX Series claimed performance of 80 Gbps (80,000 Mbps), and latency was tested at 8 microseconds or lower. Total cost of ownership for the TX Series stands at under $7 per protected Mbps.

Nilesh Jain, Vice President – South East Asia and India, Trend Micro said, “Organizations today are faced with an unenviable task of meeting market demands for continuous innovation and growth while keeping key systems and data safe from a growing range of cyber threats.

This is where our TippingPoint Threat Protection Systems (TPS) comes into play, securing customers against known, undisclosed and unknown vulnerabilities with high accuracy featuring threat reputation, machine learning, URL reputation, advanced malware analysis and more.”

“We are glad to be recognized by NSS Labs, who agree that the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network-powered threat intelligence, is a winning combination for next-gen network-level protection.
