Deal spotted: Free Trend Micro small business security for 6 months (when you buy 12 months)

If you've got several staff and haven't upgraded your computer security in a while, this might be a good excuse.

We thought this promotional offer for 6-month free use of Worry-Free Business Security Professional from Trend Micro was interesting for a couple of reasons.

First, the 6 months "free". To get it you have to buy a 12-month subscription which costs $599.50 and covers five users. The offer runs until 26 March 2014.

Second, if you've got several computers at work, and you haven't stepped up to a security product designed for this, then this Trend Micro product might be the type of product you consider.

 Typically, large businesses with dedicated IT staff and infrastructure install specific appliances to carry out this sort of security.

Trend Micro's approach is to deliver a "virtual appliance" for security through a cloud service. Devices within your network have all their traffic filtered through this cloud service.

The product is called Worry-Free Business Security Professional.  It works with their InterScan Web Security service that delivers protection to computers on your network through a cloud service.

It protects servers, point of sale devices, USB drives, tablets and smartphones as well as desktop and notebook computers. It scans incoming email for malware as well as blocking malicious websites. The idea is that potential threats are stopped from ever entering your business network – it takes a "prevention is better than cure" approach to security.
