Configuring Smart Protection Network Settings

Enable Trend Micro Smart Feedback to share threat information with the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network. This provides better protection for your network because Trend Micro is able to quickly identify and address new threats.

Enabling Smart Protection Network Settings is also required for some widgets to function. This is because the widgets receive their data directly from Trend Micro Smart Protection Network.


Email Reputation, File Reputation, and Web Reputation are all part of the Smart Protection Network.

  1. Navigate to Administration > Settings > Smart Protection Network Settings.

    The Smart Protection Network Settings screen appears.

  3. Specify how often Control Manager will send completely anonymous threat information to the Smart Protection Network from the Time interval drop-down list.
  4. Specify the industry that your company is in from the Your industry drop-down list.
  5. Click Save.
