New in this Release

Trend Micro Security (for Mac) includes the following new features and enhancements:



Improved scan performance and functionality

  • The on-demand scan cache improves the scanning performance and reduces scan time by skipping previously scanned, threat-free files.

  • Configure scan exclusion folders with ease by using wildcards.

  • Allow users to postpone, skip, or stop Scheduled Scan.

Smart protection for Web Reputation

Agents send Web Reputation queries to smart protection sources to determine the safety of websites. Agents leverage the smart protection source list configured for OfficeScan agents to determine the smart protection sources to which to send queries.

Update enhancements

Agents can run updates according to a schedule and obtain updates from the Trend Micro ActiveUpdate server if the Trend Micro Security (for Mac) server is unavailable.


If Trend Micro Security (for Mac) is installed together with OfficeScan 10.6 or later and Plug-in Manager 2.0 or later, you can manage Trend Micro Security (for Mac) widgets on the OfficeScan dashboard. The widgets are available after activating Trend Micro Security (for Mac).

Control Manager integration

Trend Micro Security (for Mac) agent settings can now be deployed from Control Manager Policy Management.

IPv6 support

The Trend Micro Security (for Mac) server and agents can now be installed on IPv6 computers.
