Trend Micro understands how important it is to safeguard your network and to stop threats at the gateway before they get to your endpoints. Trend Micro Web Security (TMWS) provides a flexible solution that leverages the Trend Micro expert cloud technology and combines it with the power of an on-premises software appliance.
As a cloud-based solution, TMWS enables you to focus on strategic security, such as policy and architecture, rather than on the operational tasks of managing network infrastructure. As an on-premises software appliance, TMWS gives you the option of deploying an on-premises gateway at the head office or other crucial endpoints for granular application control.
TMWS can protect a computer or mobile device. Using a Mobile Virtual Private Network (VPN), TMWS can protect iOS-based and Android-based mobile devices.
TMWS is proxy based, requiring web traffic to be forwarded to the TMWS proxy server for the service. It does not scan the traffic from desktop or mobile applications that do not support traffic transfer through a proxy.
