Trend Micro founder in influential people list.

Trend Micro : 14 April, 2008  (Company News)
Co-Founder of network protection specialists, Trend Micro, gains recognition as one of the most influential people in the IT industry.
Trend Micro has announced that its CEO and co-founder Eva Chen was recently named one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in IT by the editors of eWeek, CIO Insight and Baseline magazines, all published by Ziff Davis.

To come up with the 2008 list, the editors of Ziff Davis "looked for people who not only had a tangible track record of IT success, but also have far- reaching influence, the ability to effect change and a deep level of engagement in developing emerging technologies." The last criteria, according to the editors, was especially important because it includes people who are on the leading edge of technology development - those who not only shape the products we use, but how people work.

"Under [Eva] Chen's leadership, Trend Micro continues to engineer security software that outperforms the competition's," said the editors.

Since Trend Micro's inception in 1988, Eva has helped develop products, technology and strategies that have shaped the security landscape. These include: the migration from desktop security to comprehensive network protection; the industry's first centralised antivirus solutions for gateways, email systems, and file servers; innovations in automatic virus detection and virus removal.

During the past few years, an underground malware industry has carved itself a thriving market by exploiting the trust and confidence of Web users. Thousands of malicious Web pages are discovered on a daily basis as cyber criminals hijack legitimate Web sites with malware, or redirect unsuspecting users to third-party sites that contain malware.

In response, Eva led the development of Trend Micro's Web Threat Protection -- comprehensive, coordinated security technology in areas where Web threats can most effectively be stopped - in the cloud, at the gateway and on the endpoint. Most recently, Trend Micro announced its new Web Protection Add-On tool that proactively intercepts malicious threats at the earliest possible point of infection, thus reducing dependence upon conventional pattern file downloads.

Eva (#29) was ranked alongside Apple's Steve Jobs, Microsoft's Steve Ballmer, Oracle's Larry Ellison, Google's Larry Page & Sergey Brin, Venture capitalist John Doerr and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
