About Trend Micro Security (for Mac)

Trend Micro Security (for Mac) provides the latest protection against security risks, blended threats, and platform independent web-based attacks.

Trend Micro software installed on a Macintosh computer (called "agent") reports its security status to, and obtains security settings and configurations from, the web-based Trend Micro Security (for Mac) server. The server is managed by a designated administrator in your organization.

The agent protects computers by scanning files and then performing a specific action for each security risk detected. The agent also leverages the extensive web security databases from Trend Micro to check the reputation of websites that you attempt to access, and block dangerous and unsafe websites.
