Trend Micro Opens New Global Operations Headquarters

Security software maker Trend Micro officially announced the grand opening of its Global Operations Headquarters in Irving/Las Colinas, Texas this week.

Located just outside of Dallas, the new location will house operations for the company’s threat research, finance, legal, customer support, commercial sales and marketing, and human resources business units.

The new facility will house 220 employees to start, though it is set to handle expansion as the company grows its presence in the area.  

“With our new base of operations in the United States, we are further demonstrating a relentless dedication to customers as we enter a new era after our first quarter century in business,” Eva Chen, CEO of Trend Micro said in statement. “We are excited that ‘Trenders’ from all around the world will experience the vibrant business community the Dallas-Fort Worth area has to offer.”

The program will also include an Internet Safety Awareness assembly to teach best practices for online safety.
