Trend Micro Establishes CTOne, Focusing on 5G Network and Security Advances


It’s no secret that the transformation of legacy factories to smart factories has become quite mainstream as businesses look to improve safety and productivity while reducing labor costs. With this comes the cybersecurity of next-generation communication tech, as well as the integration of resources to effectively combat emerging threats in private 5G networks.

Trend Micro, with a cybersecurity platform protecting more than 500,000 organizations across clouds, networks, devices and endpoints, is up to these very tasks with their new announcement of CTOne, a subsidiary that enables necessary digital transformations and offers enterprise cybersecurity solutions.

From incubation project to full-on launch as a standalone business, a primary goal of CTOne is to help enterprises build high-quality application ecosystems and strengthen the resiliency of their communication technologies. So, by pre-deploying security nets, CTOne can reinforce the digital resilience of vertical applications fields and provide the comprehensive protection from network to endpoint that businesses need.

“Low latency, large bandwidth, and high-density capabilities have accelerated many organizations to adopt private 5G networks,” said Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro. “We have been at the forefront of these 5G network technologies for more than three decades, enabling capabilities requiring new cybersecurity infrastructure. We remain confident that CTOne will safeguard organizations in all 5G network environments.”

With recent reports indicating that the global 5G network market was valued at $1.38 billion in 2021 alone, it is expected to expand rapidly; with rapid expansion comes the risk of cyber threats.

“Safety today doesn’t guarantee safety tomorrow,” said Jason Huang, CEO of CTOne. “With the market booming, business operations face exposure to more complex risks. CTOne enables enterprises to secure private 5G networks against cyberattacks. And in the future, we will collaborate with partners to maximize 5G advantages and deploy more secure solutions.”
