2. Key Features and Benefits

Trend Micro Security provides the following features and benefits:

Security Risk Protection

Trend Micro Security protects computers from security risks by scanning files and then performing a specific action on each security risk detected. An overwhelming number of security risks detected over a short period of time signals an outbreak. Trend Micro Security notifies you of any outbreak so you can take immediate action, such as cleaning infected computers and isolating them until they are completely risk-free.

Web Reputation

Web reputation technology proactively protects client computers within or outside the corporate network from malicious and potentially dangerous Web sites. Web reputation breaks the infection chain and prevents downloading of malicious code.

Centralized Management

A Web-based management console gives administrators transparent access to all clients on the network. The Web console coordinates automatic deployment of security policies, pattern files, and software updates on every client. Administrators can perform remote administration and configure settings for clients or groups.

7. Known Issues

The following are the known issues in this release:

7.1. Trend Micro Security Server

  1. When the server is installed on a Windows Server 2008 computer, the following Windows message displays:

" A program can't display a message on your desktop."

This message can be ignored. The server will be installed successfully.

  1. A client that has been uninstalled from a Macintosh computer is not automatically unregistered from the server. On the Web console's client tree, the client's status is "offline".

To unregister the client from the server:

    1. On the Web console, click Client Management and select the client that was uninstalled.
    2. Click Manage Client Tree > Remove Group/Client.
  1. The server does not automatically remove inactive clients from the client tree.

An inactive client has been continuously offline for an extended period of time and may have already been uninstalled from the Macintosh computer. To remove an inactive client, see the unregistration steps in known issue 7.1.2.

7.2. Trend Micro Security Client

  1. Trend Micro Security client does not support the ipfw (ipfirewall) command. When a user issues the command on the Macintosh computer to limit bandwidth usage, the computer becomes unresponsive.

  2. When a user uses proxy settings for Internet connection and then accesses a Web site that does not exist, the Trend Micro Security client displays a blocking page stating that the Web site is unrated.

  3. If users choose the option Set access for specific services and applications in the personal firewall for Mac OS X and then install the Trend Micro Security client, users need to allow connections to icorepluginMgr when prompted by the system. icorepluginMgr is used to register the client to the server.

  4. A Java-based application on Macintosh computers may take longer to launch if the application links to a large number of .jar files. Trend Micro Security needs to scan all the .jar files for security risks before the application can be launched. If users experience this problem, you can consider adding .jar to the scan exclusion list.
