Tencent chooses Trend Micro to power its QQ PC Manager tool

By • Apr 15th, 2011 • Category: Blog

Tencent and Trend Micro have established a partnership to integrate Trend Micro’s anti-malware software with Tencent’s QQ PC Manager tool, creating a more secure online experience for Tencent’s users.

Tencent doesn’t have a great reputation when it comes to security. Tencent QQ Messenger and Tencent Qzone users have complained about the services being unsecured and vulnerable to malicious attacks, such as malware and spam. The decision to partner with Trend Micro is a good one, but it only extends Trend Micro’s anti-malware technology to its PC Manager tool. What Tencent really has to do is integrate anti-malware and anti-spam technology into its QQ Messenger and Qzone services directly, so that it can satisfy its huge user base and prevent users from migrating to competitors who have more secure services.
