CUPERTINO, Calif., Aug. 28 (UPI) -- California-based Trend Micro Inc. has announced Web-based security will be added to its anti-virus and content security options.

In an effort to offer businesses greater security against ever increasing Internet-based attacks, Trend Micro has released its InterScan Web Security Appliance.

InterScan Web Security Appliance features URL Filtering and applet security in a real-time Web environment. The No. 1 infection vector for malware has increasingly come from Web sites. Officials say with the InterScan Web Security Appliance Web pages are assessed based on both behavior and content.

"Robust, easy to manage security that provides a proactive solution to these insidious attacks is needed. InterScan Web Security Appliance clearly fits this need."

Malware has traditionally come from a single payload. But hackers and other cyber threats have recently packaged malware to download multiple components without the victims' knowledge.
