Trend Micro Vulnerability Protection

Advanced Vulnerability Shielding for Endpoints

Keep your endpoints shielded until patches can be deployed, or indefinitely for out-of-support or un-patchable systems. We’ll help you prevent vulnerabilities from being exploited with easy- and fast-to-deploy filters. So you get full protection until you can deploy patches when it makes the most sense for your business.

Over 100 million threats blocked and counting

Protect yourself

Cover exploits with virtual patching at the endpoint

Get earlier, stronger endpoint protection when you supplement client-level antivirus and anti-malware security with pro-active virtual patching. A high-performance, engine monitors traffic for new specific vulnerabilities using host-based intrusion prevention filters as well as zero-day attack monitoring. So you can detect network protocol deviations, suspicious content that signals an attack, or security policy violations.

  • Eliminates risk exposure due to missing patches
  • Extends the life of legacy and end-of-support operating systems like Windows XP
  • Reduces downtime for recovery with incremental protection against zero-day attacks
  • Allows patching on your own terms and timelines
  • Lowers potential legal exposure by improving data security compliance
  • Enhances firewall protection for remote and mobile enterprise endpoints

Simple, flexible suites protect you now and into the future
