Trend Micro Apex Central™ is a web-based console that provides centralized management for Trend Micro products and services at the gateway, mail server, file server, and corporate desktop levels. Administrators can use the policy management feature to configure and deploy product settings to managed products and endpoints. The Apex Central web-based management console provides a single monitoring point for antivirus and content security products and services throughout the network.

Apex Central enables system administrators to monitor and report on activities such as infections, security violations, or virus/malware entry points. System administrators can download and deploy components, such as antivirus pattern files, scan engines, and antispam rules, throughout the network to ensure up-to-date protection. Apex Central allows both manual and pre-scheduled updates, and allows the configuration and administration of products as groups or as individuals for added flexibility.
