Table 1. Key Features and Benefits



Smart Scan

Trend Micro Security (for Mac) uses smart scan to make the scanning process more efficient. This technology works by off-loading a large number of signatures previously stored on the local endpoint to Smart Protection Sources. Using this approach, the system and network impact of the ever-increasing volume of signature updates to endpoint systems is significantly reduced.

For information about smart scan and how to deploy it to agents, see Scan Method Types.

Damage Cleanup Services

Damage Cleanup Services™ cleans computers of file-based and network viruses, and virus and worm remnants (Trojans, viral files) through a fully-automated process. To address the threats and nuisances posed by Trojans, Damage Cleanup Services does the following:

  • Detects and removes live Trojans

  • Kills processes that Trojans create

  • Repairs system files that Trojans modify

  • Deletes files and applications that Trojans drop

Because Damage Cleanup Services runs automatically in the background, it is not necessary to configure it. Users are not even aware when it runs. However, Trend Micro Security (for Mac) may sometimes notify users to restart their endpoints to complete the process of removing a Trojan.

Security Risk Protection

Trend Micro Security (for Mac) protects endpoints 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 (for Mac) notifies you of any outbreak so you can take immediate action, such as cleaning infected endpoints and isolating them until they are completely risk-free.

Web Reputation

Web Reputation technology proactively protects endpoints within or outside the corporate network from malicious and potentially dangerous websites. Web Reputation breaks the infection chain and prevents downloading of malicious code.

Verify the credibility of websites and pages by integrating OfficeScan with the Smart Protection Server or the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network.

Centralized Management

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