Trend Micro Worry- Free Business Security (WFBS) delivers comprehensive client/server protection for small businesses against a variety of Web threats for Microsoft Windows 2000/XP/Vista, Small Business Server 2003/2008 and Exchange Server.


WFBS was a snap to install, configure and administer, stepping us through the configuration for the Security Server and agents to be deployed on client machines. Compared to enterprise-class security applications, WFBS didn't require extensive network setting inputs. The client/server security and remote messaging agents were created equally fast and simply. Client agents can be installed remotely via login scripts or downloaded from an internal or secured website.

The Vulnerability Scanner can scan the network and automatically deploy agents to unprotected systems. We logged in to the Web Console through a browser connection. An SSL connection to the Security Server is optional, which we thought introduced unnecessary risk. The Web Console was just about the most uncluttered security product interface we have ever encountered- eight menus are instantly accessible with a single mouseclick.
