Trend Micro Acquires Taiwan's Broadweb for Threat Mitigation

Trend Micro has acquired Broadweb, a Taiwan-based provider of advanced network security solutions, for an undisclosed sum.

Broadweb offers a branded network security service in Asia that provides deep packet inspection and real-time blocking of malicious packets.

"As attacks evolve, conventional network security is no longer sufficient to keep digitized data, intellectual property and communications safe," said Kevin Simzer, senior vice president, marketing and business development, Trend Micro. "Our Custom Defense solution is unlike anything on the market. It enables organizations to detect, analyze, adapt and respond to targeted attacks and advanced threats. Integrating Broadweb's proven capabilities into our Custom Defense Solution enhances our ability to provide customers with the most comprehensive solution for targeted attacks available today."
