    MARLOW, England, April 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro (Nasdaq: TMIC)
 (TSE: 4704), a worldwide leader in network antivirus and Internet content
 security solutions, today announced that its co-founder, Executive Vice
 President and Chief Technology Officer, Eva Chiang, has been honoured with the
 Secure Computing Lifetime Achievement Award at a ceremony held in London on
 24th April 2001.  The international award recognises the major role Chiang has
 played in shaping and driving forward world information security for more than
 a decade.  She is the first woman to win this prestigious award.
     In awarding Chiang the coveted Lifetime Achievement award, a panel of
 independent Judges felt that her thirteen years contributing to the
 advancement of antivirus technology singled her out.  They also felt that
 Ms. Chiang represented an outstanding role model for young women.
     John Machin, Partner, KPMG, Information Risk Management and chairman of
 the independent judging panel, commented:  "In co-founding one of the world's
 leading antivirus solutions companies and driving forward technological
 innovations within the antivirus arena for over a decade, Ms Chiang is a
 deserving winner of the lifetime achievers award".
     He added:  "Computer virus attacks can cause massive damage both within
 the business and wider community. Ms Chiang's contribution to fighting this
 threat cannot be understated".
     Ms Chiang said:  "I am extremely honoured to receive the prestigious
 Secure Computing award.  It's truly rewarding to be at the forefront of
 developing technology which defends society against the growing threat of
 computer-based attack and I am touched to have my efforts recognised in this
 way."
     Just a few of Ms Chiang's significant innovations include her early focus
 on the problem of email-borne viruses, conceiving and leading the development
 of the first Internet gateway virus protection solution, InterScan VirusWall,
 which has since become an industry standard and is the market leader in its
 space with 54% market share according to IDC.  Chiang also envisioned and led
 the development of the industry's first web- and windows-based central
 management console for managing multiple antivirus products across a network,
 the Trend Virus Control System.
     Eva Chiang, co-founder of Trend Micro, has served as Chief Technology
 Officer (CTO) since 1996.  She has also served as the Executive Vice President
 of Trend Micro since May 1988.  In her role as CTO she is responsible for
 overall product strategy and technology direction.  Over the past thirteen
 years, Chiang has grown Trend Micro's development team from one to more than
 four hundred.  Under her guidance, Trend Micro has earned a reputation for
 innovation and groundbreaking products.  Chiang has written numerous articles
 on the subject of Internet security and in April 2000 she won the Judges Award
 from Secure Computing Magazine for her article, Poison Java.
