Trend Micro and Reconnex to Deliver End-to-End Data Leak Prevention Solution

Agreement Leverages Trend Micro's Best-of-Breed DLP Endpoint With Reconnex's Network DLP Expertise

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA--(Marketwire - December 10, 2007) - Reconnex, the leader in information monitoring and protection appliances, today announced that it has signed an agreement with Trend Micro Incorporated, a leader in network antivirus and Internet content security software, to OEM its data leak prevention (DLP) agent as part of the Reconnex iGuard DLP solution. Reconnex has integrated the Trend Micro™ LeakProof with its iGuard to create the most comprehensive and intelligent network- and endpoint-based DLP solution available, offering enterprises complete protection for data in motion, data at rest, and data in use.

The agreement leverages the Reconnex Open API, which provides access to Reconnex's capture database of indexed, searchable content, to integrate the Trend Micro LeakProof agent into the Reconnex DLP system. This API enables an enterprise-class solution that defines and enforces policies for the protection of sensitive information. The integrated solution enables users to monitor adherence to policies at the edge of the network, as well as on each endpoint, in a consistent and unified manner. Trend Micro LeakProof will enable Reconnex to safeguard data in use at corporate desktops, branch offices, and mobile devices, online or offline, by effectively blocking all exits regardless of attached device, communications channel, or network protocol.

"Enterprises need security solutions that protect not only their networks but also their intellectual property, proprietary data, and private customer information. This is critical to the success of their businesses," said John Racioppi, general manager of the Trend Micro data leak prevention business unit. "Trend Micro LeakProof secures mobile and desktop devices, and prevents internal security violations. We believe the DLP challenge cannot be resolved without a robust endpoint component. Reconnex's choice of LeakProof as its endpoint solution validates the quality of our product."

Under the terms of the agreement, Reconnex will sell and support Trend Micro LeakProof to its global customers through its direct sales force and channel partners. Users can easily set endpoint policies through the Reconnex DLP console and propagate them seamlessly to Trend Micro's agent endpoints. The Reconnex iGuard system monitors data in use at the endpoints for security violation, which are reported -- along with data-in-motion violations in the network -- through the Reconnex console. Trend Micro's intelligent endpoint agents also enhance the data-at-rest capabilities of the Reconnex solution by enabling users to scan all endpoints for the presence of sensitive data.

"The Reconnex iGuard DLP system is now able to leverage Trend Micro's global enterprise scale, addressing the highly distributed and mobile corporate environments commonly found today," said John K. Peters, CEO of Reconnex. "Trend Micro customers are offered data-in-motion and data-at-rest scanning and endpoint DLP, while Reconnex customers receive a market-leading endpoint solution."

The Trend Micro anti-leak agent is a powerful, non-intrusive, monitoring and enforcement agent that detects and prevents information leaks at each endpoint, and is the only technology today that is practical to run on laptops and other constrained endpoints. Because it resides on the endpoint and contains its own policy-matching capability and signature database, LeakProof provides the unique ability to operate even when offline.
