Ever since its inception in 1988, Eva has helped spearhead Trend Micro’s emergence as one of the world’s most innovative antivirus security companies. Before becoming CEO, Eva served as executive vice president from 1988-1996 and CTO from 1996-2004. During that time, she made an indelible mark on the company and the security landscape as a whole. Under her direction, Trend Micro produced a chronology of industry firsts, from unique products to outbreak management approaches. As a result of her innovation and leadership, she was appointed CEO in late 2004.VisionIn 2003, Eva was acknowledged by Information Security magazine as one of the top five most influential “Women of Vision”. The honor was a testament to her long-standing reputation as one of the security industry’s true pioneers and thought leaders. Her success – and therefore Trend Micro’s success – has always been rooted in her ability to anticipate marketplace challenges and deliver solutions before emerging threats become widespread problems.In many cases, the industry has followed Trend Micro’s lead. For instance, Eva led the migration from desktop security to comprehensive network protection. It was at this time, serving as Trend Micro’s CTO, that Eva helped develop the industry’s first centralized antivirus solutions for gateways, email systems, and file servers. She secured five key patents to anchor these unique solutions. These patents involve innovations in automatic virus detection, virus removal, and security for email and other critical applications. In addition, Eva conceptualized and delivered Network VirusWall, a first-of-its-kind outbreak prevention appliance that protects multiple network segments and servers.To enable customers to leverage these solutions effectively, Eva helped deliver Trend Micro Enterprise Protection Strategy, the industry’s first strategic approach for managing outbreaks across the network. Instead of adhering to the traditional one-size-fits-all approach for desktops, Eva acknowledged the need to address outbreaks as a series of stages that present distinct challenges and require different solutions throughout the network environment. Enterprise Protection Strategy marked the first time any antivirus security company delivered specific solutions to target specific areas of the network at specific stages of an outbreak’s lifecycle.Eva’s prominent role in this innovation reset the industry standard and broadened the value of antivirus security to businesses and consumers alike. Because of Eva’s work in establishing Enterprise Protection Strategy as a trusted, proven approach for defending against malicious threats, Trend Micro is more than a provider of antivirus products. The company is a trusted partner that leverages rich expertise and customer relationships to provide timely updates now and in the future.Contact a speaker booking agent to check availability on Eva Chen and other top speakers and celebrities.
