We are pleased to announce a major update to Tivoli Endpoint Manager for 
Core Protection (TEM-CP), our integrated anti-malware and firewall product 
for Windows and Mac computers.  Note that TEM for Core Protection is the 
updated name for what was formerly referred to as the BigFix Core 
Protection Module (CPM).

This product represents a close collaboration between IBM and Trend Micro 
that has enabled us to deliver a deep integration of Trend's anti-malware 
engine such that it is completely managed by the TEM Console.

Major features in this release include:

- OfficeScan engine update: The Core Protection anti-malware and firewall 
engine has been updated to leverage Trend Micro's latest engine, 
OfficeScan v10.5.

- Improved reporting and workflow: New views such as the Protection Status 
Dashboard provide at-a-glance status of critical metrics and Core 
Protection services, providing remediation steps in the same view.

- Cloud-based "Smart Scanning": Support for Trend Micro's cloud-based 
Smart Protection Network has now been expanded to include file reputation, 
adding to the existing web reputation capabilities available in previous 
versions of the product. This industry-leading technology results in 
significantly lower signature sizes and correspondingly lower client 
resource requirements, as the majority of threat information is stored in 
the cloud. This cloud-based protection model provides improved threat 
detection capabilities, and has been proven through independent 3rd-party 
AV testing organizations to perform significantly better than other 
vendors in the AV market.  Note that the traditional signature-based model 
is still supported, and this "Smart Scanning" is an optional feature. 
Please work with your TEM account team to assess whether this feature 
would work well in your enterprise.

- Virtualization Awareness - Integration with Citrix XenDesktop and VMWare 
View enables automatic serialization of AV scans to avoid AV storms that 
occur when many guests on the same physical server kick-off scans at the 
same time. This virtualization awareness enables organizations to increase 
the ROI from virtualization investments by allowing for a higher density 
of guests on a physical host.

- Behavior Monitoring - Monitors processes and applications for suspicious 
behaviors and safeguards the Core Protection client.

- Point-of-Sale support - TEM for Core Protection now supports the Windows 
Embedded POSReady 2009 platform.

feedback you may have as you explore the new features.

we can simply activate your license remotely and off you go!
