Since Trend Micro Apex One™ Patch 3 and OfficeScan XG SP1 Patch 1, there exists an option to enable Enhanced Support Services, which enables Trend Micro to collect basic endpoint information that do not contain personally identifiable information (PII). With this service enabled, Trend Micro can provide advanced protection solutions rapidly via this service channel.
This article provides information on the data that is collected after customers agree to “Allow and continue installation”, as well as the mechanism to remove Enhanced Support Services.
During Trend Micro Apex One™ Patch 3 or OfficeScan XG SP1 Patch 4 installation, the following dialog appears, providing the customer with the option to enable Enhanced Support Services on Security Agents.
If enabled, Apex One/OfficeScan Security Agents start to regularly send the following data to Trend Micro servers:
Security Agent data
|Apex One/OfficeScan Security Agent GUID|
OS display name
|For Security Agent management|
|Installed services||Is AD service installed?|
