Australian Defense Force obtains protection from a popular security vendor to protect all branches including the Navy, Army and Air Force

Australia's Department of Defense signed a Trend Micro VIP license agreement to protect the country's entire defense establishment: including the Australian Army, Royal Australian Navy and Royal Australian Air Force.

This agreement was a result of the increasing extent of outsider interest in accessing Australia's military secrets. It was reported that in 1999 this top-secret defence department computers were attacked by hackers more than 20 times everyday.

"Virus defense across a network of this size is all about iron-clad defense and central control," said Kenny Liao, managing director of Trend Micro Australia. "Trend Micro's solution provides a multi-layered defense that can be remotely deployed, updated and managed from a central location."

Trend Micro's VIP license agreement covers the range of products that guard potential virus entry points into a network, including via floppy disks, email, Internet downloads, or file sharing across servers.

Products covered in the VIP license include:

  • Trend Virus Control System: A web based management console that manages virus protection software across the enterprise network
