MANILA, Philippines – Interpol has strengthened its fight against cybercrime by upgrading its security software and solutions.

“We are proud to support Interpol in their vital role combatting cybercrime across the globe,” said Eva Chen, CEO, Trend Micro Incorporated, in announcing its three-year agreement with the international police organization and its 190-member countries.


“Our partnership with Interpol will provide tools, training and human resources to strengthen their team’s capability to fight criminal activity around the world,” said Chen.

Over the next three years, Trend Micro will share its threat information analysis with Interpol officers through its Trend Micro™ Threat Intelligence Service. The goal of this initiative is to investigate, deter and ultimately prevent cybercrimes. This effort will also help to bridge the gap in information-sharing between the public and private sectors, said Chen.


Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble said that as the world’s largest international police organization, Interpol has a “responsibility to forge partnerships across all sectors to ensure our member countries have access to the tools and resources they need to assist investigators to prevent and solve crimes”.

“Trend Micro’s strong support for the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation will enable us to leverage their expertise in supporting each of our 190 member countries in their efforts to combat cyber threats,” added the Interpol Chief.

Trend Micro will also assist Interpol in providing a cybercrime investigation training program to improve techniques and increase capabilities of member countries conducting a growing number of investigations. To support these new initiatives, a Trend Micro security researcher will be onsite at the Interpol Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore.

Trend Micro products which will be available to Interpol for use at the IGCI, and beyond, include OfficeScan™, InterScan™ Web Security and PortalProtect™ to secure portals and endpoints; ScanMail™ Suite and InterScan™ Messaging Security to provide secure communications; and Deep Security™ to protect web-based applications.
