CUPERTINO, Calif., April 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704,), a global cloud security leader, today announced an expanded strategic partnership with Facebook focused on educating and protecting users' digital lives against malicious sites and malware.

Facebook will continue to benefit from Trend Micro's Smart Protection Network™ infrastructure, which uses cloud technology, threat correlation and a global network of threat intelligence sensors to proactively stop malware and web threats, and help block malicious links from their site.

"We are thrilled to build on our continuing partnership through the expanded availability of Trend Micro software to more of our global users," said Joe Sullivan, chief security officer at Facebook.
