Instant Protection for Instant Messaging

A growing number of companies are using instant messaging to connect employees, partners, and customers in real time. While live communication improves productivity, it also presents a new opportunity for cybercriminals to work more quickly, spreading malware, luring victims to malicious sites, and stealing data in a flash. Given the instant exposure to fast-moving threats, instant protection is critical.

Trend Micro™ IM Security for Microsoft™ Lync and Office Communications Server (OCS) secures your enterprise IM communications by stopping threats instantly. Web Reputation, powered by Trend Micro’s Smart Protection Network, takes advantage of a unique cloud-client architecture and correlated threat intelligence to block links to malicious sites—before the links can be delivered. Plus our leading antivirus, new antispyware, and zero-day protections work together to thwart attacks sooner, before any damage. With flexible content filtering, it also prevents inappropriate IM use and data theft.
