TMC Information Share

Security and Software Updates:

When the TMC Information Sharing configuration is restricted to only poll for software and security updates by only enabling "Enable TMC Polling for DV, OS, GEO DB, and License Package updates", minimal data is collected by Trend Micro. We use the data to verify your support contract entitlement status and current software versions in order to respond with the correct software and security content.

Backup

Backup allows the user to send a complete backup of the SMS system to specified locations (such as TippingPoint Support) for analysis.

An SMS backup may include all configured properties of the system, including items like IP addresses, usernames, and email addresses. Backup data is only sent to destinations that the user controls. It is highlighted here because it is a complete snapshot of the SMS system that can contain data covered by GDPR.
