Trend Micro Incorporated announced a NAS solution that includes built-in antivirus designed to prevent the spread of viruses within workplaces and home offices. Trend Micro NAS Security's antivirus technology is built directly into the NAS itself and requires no extra installation for protection.

Trend Micro NAS Security is optimized for NAS-based Linux operating systems and helps prevent malware infections. The product provides protection against computer viruses, Trojans, and worms. When these files are uploaded to an NAS, Trend Micro NAS Security is able to scan these files in real-time. A web-based management console makes it easy to use, while at the same time providing centralized virus scanning, pattern updates, event reporting and antivirus configuration.

Main features include:

  • Antivirus and spyware protection. Detects and removes viruses and spyware using real-time, on-demand and scheduled scans.
  • Anti-malware policy compliance. Enables antivirus policy enforcement and accelerates automatic updates of virus patterns and scan engines.
  • Log report. Allows IT administrators to keep logs of malware detection and scan performance.

"Our customers who choose to implement NAS within their business or home office are looking for a central place to securely store and share all of their data. We are pleased to partner with Trend Micro, a recognized leader in content security, to be able to offer our customers the most powerful antivirus protection available. With Trend Micro NAS Security built into select Buffalo NAS products, our customers can have ease of mind, knowing their data is protected," said Hajime Nakai, Director, Member of the Board at Buffalo Inc. and Ralph Spagnola, vice president of sales at Buffalo Inc.

Currently, Trend Micro NAS Security is found built into select network storage devices by NAS vendors.
