Microsoft renews Trend Micro Hotmail antivirus deal

Posted by David Hunter at 11:02 AM ET.

Per the Associated Press:

Trend Micro Inc., a maker of antivirus and network security software, said on Monday it received an extension on a 2004 contract with Microsoft Corp. to provide antivirus scanning and cleaning services to 230 million MSN Hotmail e-mail accounts.

Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed; nor did the company say for how long the contract had been extended.

Apparently the Microsoft server antivirus products (Microsoft Client Protection, Antigen) don’t apply, aren’t ready yet, or can’t handle the considerable Hotmail load.
