Trend Micro Internet Security Software Now Supports Linux on System z

Trend Micro Incorporated, an internet security vendor, announced its security software for 64-bit IBM Lotus Domino platforms now extends to the IBM System z platform. The ScanMail Suite delivers anti-spam, anti-malware, web threat protection and content filtering to prevent data theft and loss.

Specifically designed as a native Lotus Domino server application, ScanMail is optimized for high-performance scanning on 64-bit IBM Lotus Domino for Linux on System z as well as Windows and AIX. "The release allows us to exploit the world's fastest chip technology on the IBM zEnterprise System to help our customers achieve reliability, security and manageability for their multi-OS datacenters," says Steve Quane, chief product officer at Trend Micro. "Further, since Lotus Domino, ScanMail and IBM System z all support multiple operating environments, heterogeneity of data centers no longer stands in the way of dramatic consolidation and cost reduction- a key objective of our large enterprise customers."

Trend Micro tracks the credibility of Web domains and IP addresses by assigning a reputation score based on factors such as a website's age, IP email sending behavior, historical location changes, and indications of suspicious activities discovered through behavior analysis. That rating is accessible to ScanMail products, enabling messages with links to malicious URLs to be immediately blocked.
