Trend Micro Expands Presence in the Lone Star State

DALLAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, the saying is true, “everything is bigger in Texas.” Today, the company announces the opening of the newest Trend Micro office in Austin for its Trend Micro TippingPoint team members.

Located in The Domain in northwest Austin, the 75,000-square-foot, three-story office will contain a state-of-the-art laboratory facility. In addition, the building is situated within Austin’s technology corridor and provides employees with access to nearby retailers, hotels, apartments and restaurants. The property also sits adjacent to a nine-acre central park.

“As U.S. News & World Report’s 2017 Best Place to Live, Austin was a natural choice for a new office,” said Don Closser, vice president and general manager for Trend Micro TippingPoint. “Opening the new office almost a year to the day after closing the TippingPoint acquisition shows the momentum we have achieved in the past year. With our expanded presence in Austin, we are eager to contribute to this booming technology city.”

Throughout the past year with the acquisition of TippingPoint from Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), Trend Micro has not only added the best-in-class intrusion prevention technology to the Trend Micro portfolio, but also industry-leading security intelligence and vulnerability research with Digital Vaccine® Labs (DVLabs) and the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) bug bounty program. These strategic investments by Trend Micro have strengthened its network security solutions in the marketplace and propelled year over year growth.

“The Austin Chamber, through Opportunity Austin, welcomes Trend Micro to its newly expanded operations in north Austin. As a global leader in security software and solutions, the digital firm fits well into Austin’s vibrant and growing tech community which will add to the continued economic growth and diversification for our region,” said Kerry Hall, 2017 chair for Opportunity Austin.

Trend Micro will be an exhibitor at the 2017 SXSW Job Market on March 11 and 12 at booth 412 at the Austin Convention Center. To learn more about careers at Trend Micro, please visit
