In June of 2005 Trend Micro acquired Kelkea, Inc. the parent company of MAPS.
Trend Micro believes strongly in the need to provide accurate and reliable reputation information to its customers. The work that has been done by the MAPS team over the past nine years will continue in the same exacting professional manner we have always strived to deliver.
The RBLTM service is now a part of the Trend Micro Email Reputation Services offering, but will still be held to the same high standards to which it has always been maintained. The MAPS Threat Analysis team is now a part of the Trend Micro Threat Prevention Network and will continue to follow the stringent policies and guidelines for the nomination and removal of IP addresses from the various blocking databases.
