3. Trend Micro
Trend Micro took the third spot with an 11.4 percent slice of the global corporate endpoint security market, IDC said. Trend Micro grew its overall revenue by 3.6 percent. The Tokyo-based company added application control, browser exploit detection and a cloud-based secure Web gateway deployment option. Trend Micro Channel Chief Partha Panda said one of the key changes made was to simplify the package options. The company also cut some underperforming partners and is mapping its products to create versions for established industry verticals, Panda said in a recent interview. The company has also been busy building out its cloud security and Custom Defense capabilities to identify advanced threats used in targeted attacks.
