Trend Micro takes aim at targeted attacks with custom-designed security service

By , Network World |  Security, Trend Micro

Custom security updates are basically custom signatures related to specific IP address and domain blacklists that the enterprise can define based on APT-style attacks that are detected, said Quane, adding that by year-end, Trend Micro expects to have the ability to generate custom antivirus signatures as well.

The concept with custom signatures is to be able to add them to Trend's email protection product as well as its Web gateway, endpoint security and ScanMail for Exchange, as part of an APT defense strategy.
