Trend Micro defends World Cup fans from cyber attacks

New online resource centre offers information on latest threats

Trend Micro has launched an initiative to help protect users from potential security threats during the FIFA World Cup that begins on June 12.

The security developer is working to help defend against potential cyber threats relating to the upcoming tournament.

It has created an online resource to help fans and attendees with tools and information they can use to protect against potential cyber attacks.

Trend Micro said its resource centre will provide information to the general public about threats detected by the company’s threat defence experts. It will include tips on what to avoid when receiving World Cup offers, purchasing merchandise, email threats and malware.

The resource centre also offers free software to protect computers and mobile devices from malware and other threats.

Trend Micro has set up a quiz to help fans determine what type of sport fan they are and what threats they may be susceptible to as a result.

The security firm has also produced a blog post that outlines World Cup related threats already detected by Trend Micro security experts as an additional resource for fans.

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
