Global threat intelligence data will be shared to support the fight against cybercrime
DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced an agreement with the Japanese National Centre of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC) on cooperation in the cybersecurity field. Trend Micro will provide threat information to the NISC until December 31, 2020.
Trend Micro has supported the eradication of cybercrime by cooperating with a number of global and local law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, Interpol and law enforcement agencies in Japan. Trend Micro continuously monitors the indication of cyber terrorism to identify and counter new attacks similar to those that targeted the Iseshima Summit in 2016 and 2017 Asian Winter Games.
“We have always considered the bad guys to be our main competitors – they are the ones we work to stop,” said Eva Chen, co-founder and chief executive officer for Trend Micro. “Collaborative agreements like this one with NISC are critical for our efforts to make the exchange of digital information safer. We are proud to provide our leading global threat intelligence to this strong organization so we can fight cybercrime together.”
Cyberattacks originate from all over the world, which makes the use of truly global threat intelligence essential. Few cybersecurity companies have the breadth of threat intelligence data that Trend Micro can offer the NISC, particularly as it relates to regional data across Asia from numerous countries and local languages.
Trend Micro will continue to contribute to NISC’s efforts through 2019 and 2020, as well as the collective effort to make the exchange of digital information safer.
