Trend Micro to Protect 187 Million E-Mail Accounts

Tokyo-based Trend Micro Inc. will henceforth be providing Microsoft with its antivirus technology and thereby help protect MSN Hotmail e-mail customers from infected attachments by scanning in real-time for the latest viruses, Trojans, and worms.

"Our relationship with MSN Hotmail gives Trend Micro a tremendous opportunity to help protect millions of users with the same virus protection that we have been providing to our customers around the world for many years," said Steve Chang, chairman and founder of Trend Micro. "We have numerous years of experience and knowledge in this industry, and are committed to our vision of creating a world safe for exchanging digital information. This belief is behind everything we do for every customer we serve. We are thrilled to extend this to millions more."

187 million more, to be precise - since that is the current number of MSN Hotmail Web-based e-mail accounts.

MSN Hotmail customers, the companies announced, will in future receive automatic protection anytime they send and receive e-mail attachments via Trend Micro's scanning and detection services for a safer Internet experience.

Gmail blocks viruses by not allowing you to receive executable files (such as files ending in .exe) that could contain damaging executable code.

isn't this a case of too little, too late? anyone know what Google's gmail offers by way of protection?
