Trend Micro ties up with Facebook for safer social networking
| by Padmini Harchandrai |
Trend Micro, a cloud security company, announced a partnership with Facebook to provide users with safer social networking. The security firm will educate users on how to protect themselves and their digital lives from malicious sites and malware. Facebook will support integration of the Trend MicroSmart Protection Network infrastructure, which uses cloud technology, threat correlation, and a global network of threat intelligence sensors to proactively stop malware and web threats before they reach the computer. Facebook will utilize this technology to help block malicious links from their site. This partnership, therefore enables Facebook users to experience the same digital security that bigger companies who contract Trend Micro's services have access to.

When a Facebook user, on a Mac, PC or mobile device, clicks on links that have been passed on to them or posted on their friends' walls, that link will automatically (and behind the scenes) be first analysed by Trend Micro’s Smart Protection Network. The Network will perform a real-time analysis of that URL and the content of that link to determine whether it’s safe or not. If that link is deemed unsafe, then Trend Micro will warn the user that the link leads to malicious websites and malware sites. Now incorporated within Facebook’s database of external malicious URL intelligence providers, the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network infrastructure blocks threats in real-time, while processing more than 70 billion URL, e-mail, and file queries daily. Every day, Trend Micro blocks over 1.4 billion threats and processes more than 300 million new URLs.
