CUPERTINO, Calif., March 15, 2012 –/– Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cloud security leader, today announced that Trend Micro™ SafeSync™ is now available in Verizon Wireless’ mobile storefront, Verizon Apps, on select Android™ devices.

Trend Micro SafeSync offers a cloud-based backup and sync app to easily and securely access, share and synchronize files and folders between customers’ computers and Android devices. Once the app is downloaded, SafeSync seamlessly integrates into the existing PC or Mac environment, automatically keeping data files synchronized and up-to-date across multiple computers, mobile devices and the cloud, so any changes made to the files are reflected simultaneously. Customers can access their music, videos, pictures and documents anytime, anywhere using their Android devices. SafeSync also allows secure file sharing; customers can share content with colleagues, friends and family using shareable links. Anyone given access to the link will be able to download or view the file.

“We are delighted to be adding a second Trend Micro app in Verizon’s app store,” said Carol Carpenter, general manager, Consumer Division at Trend Micro. “Now Verizon customers can allow friends and family to share home videos and other media content in a secure way directly from a SafeSync account, without the hassle of downloads and bulky emails.”

Customers can download Trend Micro SafeSync from Verizon Apps in the “Tools” channel under the “Utilities” subcategory, and can try the service for free for 30 days. After the 30 days, the app can be purchased for $3.99 per month or $47.88 for a yearly subscription. Customers must have a data plan and data charges will be applied according to the plan.

SafeSync is the second product from Trend Micro available in Verizon Apps, following the successful introduction of Trend Micro™ Mobile Security Personal Edition.
