Email is mission critical. Email security should be mission critical too.

Trend Micro Hosted Email Security is a no-maintenance-required solution that delivers continuously updated protection to stop spam and viruses before they reach your network. Here's how:

  • We add value to your current environment
  • We provide always-up-to-the-minute security
  • We have the infrastructure you need

Cloud-based security is only as good as the infrastructure behind it.

We stand by the availability of our robust, fully redundant, geographically distributed data centres. If one data centre becomes unavailable, emails are automatically and transparently re-routed to a different data centre, with no impact on delivery. That's why—unlike other vendors—we measure downtime in minutes, not hours.
