Trend Micro, Inc. is a leader in network antivirus and Internet security software and services. Its solutions protect the flow of information on PCs, file servers, email servers and at the Internet gateway, providing a complete, centrally-controlled VirusWall for enterprise networks. Trend Micro has a solid reputation for transforming great ideas into cutting-edge technology. Citing its strategy and vision, the Gartner Group has hailed Trend Micro as the most visionary malicious code management supplier for four consecutive years.
Founded in 1988 by Steve Chang, the company led the migration of virus protection from the desktop to the network server and the Internet gateway, gaining a reputation for vision and technological innovation along the way. Today, Trend Micro focuses on providing customers with a comprehensive approach to managing the impact of mixed-threats to their productivity and their information, through such initiatives as Trend Micro Enterprise Protection Strategy.
The seeds for Trend Micro’s Philippine operations were planted in April 1998, when it became apparent that another customer service office was needed to support the growing number of Trend Micro customers. Trend Micro envisioned developing a world-class antivirus research and support center that would cater to the needs of customers around the globe. The result was TrendLabs, a global network of five regional antivirus research and support centers, with an ISO-9002 certified headquarters in the Philippines.
TrendLabs’ headquarters was built in the Philippines due to its huge pool of IT expertise and the large number of English-language speakers—two core qualities needed for building a successful team of Trend Micro engineers. The Philippines office grew from 13 pioneers in 1997 to over 330 employees in 2003. Since 2000, Trend Micro Philippines has been located at IBM Plaza, Eastwood City, Bagumbayan, Quezon City.
The TrendLabs Manila office houses the antivirus support team who work 24/7 to provide solutions to virus outbreaks. It is also home to the Business Process Team, which handles the Business Process Development and sustaining Global Web Projects, as well as the Product Support Services Team.
