Trend Micro Declared Leader in Threat Intelligence

It is for the global threat expertise of vulnerability research

With threats growing in sophistication daily, quickly identifying and addressing software vulnerabilities has never been more critical. Trend Micro Inc. was recognized as the leader in global threat expertise due to the strength of its vulnerability research program.

In 2016, Trend Micro Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) reported the most verified vulnerabilities, with 52.2 percent of the global total of 1,262, according to a Frost & Sullivan report. Recognized as the global leader in vulnerability research and discovery since 2007, ZDI continues to lead the industry in the identification of high-severity and critical bugs.

Trend Micro customers benefit most from this vulnerability leadership with assured protection while potentially affected vendors develop patches for the unprotected software. In 2016, Trend Micro averaged 57 days protection ahead of a vendor patch for customers using their solutions.

This bounty-style program is a key pillar of the multifaceted Trend Micro Research, which also includes threat researchers, data scientists and a variety of labs. This research, combined with third-party intelligence, a network of white hats, honey pots, web crawlers and customer insights continuously strengthen the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network, the cloud-based global threat intelligence that fuels all of Trend Micro's XGen security solutions.

Mike Gibson, VP of threat research, Trend Micro, said: "In April 2017, The Shadow Brokers released a number of tools that exploit flaws in numerous products - including several versions of Microsoft products. Vulnerability information for two of these are exploits were submitted through the Zero Day Initiative in 2006. This allowed customers to be protected before patches were made for those vulnerabilities."
