Cybersecurity firm Trend Micro has signed an agreement with the Japanese National Centre of Incident Readiness and Strategy for Cybersecurity (NISC) to provide threat information to the NISC until December 31, 2020.
Trend Micro said that it has partnered with a number of global and local law enforcement agencies, such as the FBI, Interpol and law enforcement agencies in Japan to mitigate the challenge of cybersecurity.
The company claimed that it continuously monitors the indication of cyber terrorism to identify and counter new attacks similar to those that targeted the Iseshima Summit in 2016 and 2017 Asian Winter Games.
“We have always considered the bad guys to be our main competitors – they are the ones we work to stop,” said Eva Chen, co-founder and chief executive officer for Trend Micro. “Collaborative agreements like this one with NISC are critical for our efforts to make the exchange of digital information safer. We are proud to provide our leading global threat intelligence to this strong organization so we can fight cybercrime together.”
The company stressed that cyberattacks originate from all over the world, which makes the use of truly global threat intelligence essential. Trend Micro claimed that few cybersecurity companies have the breadth of threat intelligence data that it can offer the NISC, particularly as it relates to regional data across Asia from numerous countries and local languages.
