SEOUL - The deal enables CyberPATROL, a Korean security service provider, to protect up to 60,000 client seats with round-the-clock scanning of Web and e-mail traffic using Trend Micro's InterScan VirusWall technology.
CyberPATROL will also remotely manage virus protection on clients' networks through the Trend Virus Control System, (Trend VCS) a Web-based centralized management tool installed at CyberPATROL's Security Command and Control Center.
The antivirus service is part of CyberPATROL's "Total e-Security Management Service", which also includes managed firewalls, intrusion detection, vulnerability assessment and other services.
Demand for managed security services in Korea has taken off sharply this year. A report in the Korea Times earlier this year forecast that the outsourced services market could triple in size to reach US$180 million in 2000.
CyberPATROL is the first service provider in Korea to join Trend Micro's eDoctor Global Network, a group of ISPs, ASPs and telcos around the world which use Trend Micro's antivirus and content security.
