Trend Micro Launches Comprehensive Smart Factory Security Solutions

By Ken Briodagh November 12, 2019

In a recent announcement, Trend Micro Incorporated, a cybersecurity solutions company, unveiled its complete smart factory security solutions, designed to provide enhanced visibility and protection for embattled industrial control system (ICS) environments. The solutions reportedly will secure across all layers of Industry 4.0, mitigating this growing area of cyber risk to keep operations running by fortification.

“In the race to build connected industrial environments, security gaps are introduced that neither IT nor OT teams are able to manage,” said Akihiko Omikawa, EVP, IoT security, Trend Micro. “We knew security solutions needed to be built differently to work effectively in this setting. Our new products are designed for Industry 4.0 and backed by Trend Micro’s 30 years of experience and global threat intelligence to provide the best possible overall protection. Our motivation is to give customers peace of mind knowing that they are covered across all layers and new connections in their smart factories.”

Two new solutions, built by TXOne, a majority owned subsidiary of Trend Micro, now are available to mitigate cyber risks in connected industrial settings. These include an industrial firewall and intrusion prevention system (IPS), EdgeFire and EdgeIPS, to limit the exposure of insecure communications channels and protect against vulnerability exploitation. Additionally, the security management console provides visibility across installed OT equipment. The OT Defense Console ties in with the industrial firewall and IPS to help managers identify the root cause of attacks.

Alongside these new offerings, Trend Micro also said it has updated two existing products to best integrate with the new solutions. The first, Trend Micro Safe Lock TXOne edition, aims to protect general purpose operating systems, like Windows and Linux, by preventing malware and unauthorized programs from executing, including those from USBs. Secondly, Trend Micro Portable Security 3 receives an update to easily clean up malware infections in ICS environments.
