Anti-malware vendor Trend Micro has revamped its online threat resource centre to include new free tools designed to boost security and provide IT staff with greater visibility into the threat landscape.
The TrendWatch site has had a complete redesign to offer information on current threat activities, educational videos and threat analysis reports, according to the firm.
New to the site is VM Protection, a free software tool designed to help enterprises or service providers protect VMware virtual machines in public or private clouds.
It includes a firewall and intrusion defense protection and is specifically designed to be used by firms with small user environments, said Trend Micro chief technology officer Raimund Genes.
"I'd also recommend it for enterprises in environments where they have staging servers, trying out new technology," he added.
"Often these virtual machines are set up without anyone knowing, so this is a good tool to have to take care of them."
A new Trend Micro Threat Widget, meanwhile, is designed to sit on the user's desktop and provide current threat levels for web, email and file traffic, as well as the latest Trend Micro malware blog entries, current security advisories and a URL checking service.
The site also features podcasts, video content, monthly threat roundups and analyses of the world's most notorious threats, said the firm.
