data centers and high performing enterprise networks, Trend
Micro Incorporated
; TSE:
), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced
the general availability of the industry’s fastest inspection throughput
in a single device. The new offering carries an unprecedented 40 Gbps of
intrusion prevention in a one rack unit (1U) form factor, making Trend
Micro the first to deliver this level of performance in a small physical

The Trend Micro TippingPoint® 8200TX and 8400TX, powered by
XGenTM, are the newest members of the TippingPoint Threat
Protection System (TPS) family. With the new flexible licensing model of
this much-anticipated hardware refresh, customers can easily scale
performance and security requirements with a pay-as-you-go approach and
reassign licenses across TPS deployments without changing network

“This compact and highly scalable solution gives enterprises the ability
to deploy top-of-the-line security across the entire infrastructure,
especially where limited rack space was an issue,” said Rob Ayoub,
Research Director of IDC. “By unbundling hardware and software, Trend
Micro met a market demand with the TPS family’s flexible licensing model
and lower total cost of ownership. This new model allows channel
partners to better service their customers by upgrading
performance with a license key similar to software.”

Providing an impartial, third-party resource validation, NSS Labs has
recognized the TX series with a “recommended” rating based on the 2017
NSS Labs Next Generation Intrusion Prevention Systems (NGIPS) test
. The NSS Labs evaluation analyzed the TippingPoint TX, which
scored an overall security effectiveness rating of 99.6 percent and
proved to be effective against all evasion techniques tested. This
rating further supports Trend Micro’s commitment to its customers, as
well as industry leadership in network protection.

“In our 2017 NGIPS Group Test, Trend Micro made an impressive
demonstration of performance and security,” said Vikram Phatak, CEO of
NSS Labs. “Overall, no tradeoffs seem to have been made when achieving
the compact 1U form factor of the new TX series.”

The TX Series provides integrated advanced threat prevention by fully
leveraging and strengthening the intelligence supporting Trend Micro’s
Smart Protection NetworkTM (SPN) to detect and block known,
unknown and undisclosed attacks in-line in real-time, and now includes
URL reputation and the enforcement of user-added malicious URL entries.
With its Advanced Threat Analysis feature, the newest solution further
integrates with Deep Discovery™ to immediately forward suspicious
objects, including URLs, to be analyzed and remedied. This ensures
enterprises around the globe are as secure as possible against known
compromised and malicious websites.

“Just on the heels of achieving a perfect breach detection score of 100
percent from NSS Labs in October, this recommended rating yet again
reinforces our network security leadership within the industry,” said
Steve Quane, executive vice president of network defense and hybrid
cloud security for Trend Micro. “Our enterprise security solutions speak
for themselves in terms of effectiveness, and with another strong market
validation, the new TX Series is no different.”
