Trend Micro Partners with Iconix to Deliver Visual ID for Email

September 30, 2010

Trend Micro, a global leader in Internet content security, and Iconix, Inc., an industry leader in visual email solutions, announced that Trend Micro will offer a branded version of the Iconix eMail ID solution, worldwide through its service provider partners.

Trend Micro eMail ID Truemark Service marks legitimate email messages with the sender’s logo. With this service, email recipients can instantly find messages they care about, and more readily avoid phishing attacks and other malicious email. At the same time, senders of email — including financial services, governments and healthcare organizations — can help better protect their brand from spoofing, and ensure higher response rates.

The new service, targeted to both enterprises and service providers, marks legitimate outgoing emails with a distinct graphic that is unique to its sender. It works with most major email programs so that end users can avoid fake messages and find the legitimate ones quickly and respond to them immediately. eMail ID Truemark Service complements other Trend Micro tools and products by operating directly in the email client.

“Besides being an annoyance, spam costs organizations irreplaceable time and money,” said Wael Mohamed, senior vice president, global alliances, Trend Micro. “Trend Micro is serious about protecting customers from these dangers, and our core technologies have been top-rated in anti-spam and anti-malware. Our partnership with Iconix complements this leadership, and helps us better protect enterprises and their brands, while helping save time and costs.”

“With our product, email recipients can easily tell real from fake email, for thousands of senders,” said Bill Ames, vice president of sales for Iconix. “We’re proud to be working with Trend Micro, a technology and market leader in email security, to help create a safer and better email experience for senders and recipients alike.”
