Storage and wireless networking solutions provider Buffalo Technology has partnered with Trend Micro to prevent a TeraStation from becoming host to malware.

The partnership will allow Buffalo's TeraStation III and TeraStation Pro users benefit from centralised virus/malware scanning, pattern updates, event reporting and configuration, preventing hackers from stealing sensitive data such as email addresses and passwords.

Pre-installed with Trend Micro's network attached storage (NAS) security, it is managed through an intuitive web-based console and offers users real time updates ensuring systems are safeguarded from the latest online threats, according to Buffalo Technology.

Paul Hudson, sales director for Northern Europe at Buffalo Technology, said: “As security becomes more important for businesses, the demand for an anti-virus feature has also increased.

“Buffalo has recognised this demand from users and, as such, partnered with a trusted security company that can protect our business storage range. We are delighted to be partnering with Trend Micro and giving our business users the security they need.”
