Dell has expanded its relationship with a global leader in Internet content security, Trend Micro to enhance its security solutions portfolio and bring Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services to small and medium businesses worldwide for safer, smarter and simpler data protection.

"According to the FBI, cybercriminals steal millions from small and midsize companies," said Carol Carpenter, general manager of Trend Micro Consumer and Small Business. "Small businesses and emerging entrepreneurs are targeted more often than enterprises as they typically have limited IT resources to manage security threats. Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services lets business owners focus on growing their business without worrying about IT by protecting their customer data while keeping the maintenance cost low."

With customers' evolving security needs in mind, Dell and Trend Micro worked closely to develop a customized user interface, simplifying the management process for business owners and IT administrators when it comes to endpoint security. Customer benefits resulting from this collaboration include:

* Centralized web-based management console: IT administrators and business owners have anywhere, anytime web-access to view and manage their security.

* Low impact to system performance: Trend antivirus and threat scans are processed in the Smart Protection Network(tm) with little impact to system performance.

* Minimal management: Pre-configured security parameters make it easy for businesses with little to no IT management. Trend Micro does the rest by continuously updating against web threats when systems connect to the internet.

* Global neighborhood watch threat detection: Threat sensors around the world identify new web threats wherever they emerge to constantly to block dangerous web sites, viruses and other threats.

"Security of my customer information and company data constantly weighs on my mind, but routine maintenance eats up time that could be better used running my business. When something goes wrong employees can't get their jobs done, customers can't get services, orders can't be processed and supplies can't be ordered. The Dell and Trend Micro solution automates the process and gives me piece of mind, as I know we're protected," said Warren Brown, founder of Cake Love and recipient of IT Makeover sponsored by Dell.

Dell's expanded relationship with Trend Micro supports the July announcement of the company's security solutions portfolio providing small and medium businesses with best-of-breed security technologies. By integrating some of the Industry's leading technology, products, security management tools and services, Dell is helping customers protect their IT infrastructure and most precious asset-data.

"Like Warren, customers consistently tell us that their data is priceless and security is the top IT concern in their businesses," said Paulette Altmaier, vice president and general manager, Global SMB Solutions, Dell. "To address this, Dell has gone out into the market on behalf of our customers and assessed the best approach to security - we've put a comprehensive security solution into place by integrating best-of-breed products with both Dell's own products and technology as well as components from strategic partners including Trend Micro's Worry-Free Business Security Services."
