Trend Micro provides Smart Home Network (SHN) and Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS) solutions for on-premise home gateways and network function virtualization (NFV) environments respectively.

The Trend Micro Smart Home Network (SHN) solution offers quality of service (QoS), parental controls, and security features that improve the user experiences and prevent cyber threats from affecting residential networks. It supports a variety of Arm-based processors from virtually all major network System-on-Chip vendors. Several million home routers already have Trend Micro’s protection through the SHN solution.

The Trend Micro Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS), designed especially for carrier-grade NFV environments, offers flexible, reliable, and high-performance virtual network security for communication service providers (CSPs) from the core network to the edge. It enables CSPs to easily and quickly deliver high-quality network security solutions to end users like Enterprises, SMBs, and Consumers. VNFS supports Arm server architecture, and the system throughput is scalable as number of cores increase.

Both solutions use innovative Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology as the basis for many network security functions, including intrusion prevention, URL filtering, and application control. The unified DPI engine checks network packets and performs selected functions in a single scan, eliminating the performance impact of checking the same network packets in repetitive cycles with multiple engines. The technology has been widely adopted in a variety of network security products, from home routers to enterprise-facing next-generation firewall and intrusion prevention system. Furthermore, SHN and VNFS use the global threat intelligence and reputation services from the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network infrastructure and provides immediate protections against the latest threats.
