TrendMicro_logo We all know what a pain FakeAV has been over the course of the last few years. It seems to be the problem that just won’t die. Well, in an attempt to educate the SMB community on this problem, Trend Micro released a white paper today called Unmasking FakeAV. This document seeks to educate users on how rogue antivirus or FAKEAV applications arrive on systems and to let them know what Trend Micro solutions they can use to combat these threats. FAKEAV threats have been rampant in the past few years and are definitely here to stay. Various FAKEAV variants have, in fact, infected millions of PCs and are continuously spreading worldwide.

We recommend you use this document as a tool to help educate your customers about this problem. Hopefully, we can encourage Trend Micro to develop similar content in video form that can be shared more readily with customers using e-mail, social media platforms or webinars. So take this opportunity to keep your customer up to date on this threat and demonstrate the value that you and your company delivers.
