Right before Thanksgiving, Mirazon was again proud to be one of the few U.S. companies chosen to be a live, onsite beta Trend Micro Worry Free Team.

We were honored to have the Trend team fly in to Louisville to meet and work with us to deploy and test in our environment.

The advantages to being an onsite beta is not only that we see the new product, but also that we are able to work directly with the team that makes it all work. We go over every component of the application from start to finish: everything from icons, button placement, wording, to feature modifications and requests for enhancements.

This designation also gives us a unique opportunity to ask more detailed questions on current versions that our engineers come back with from the field, which helps both us as well as them in improving the product. And, of course, everyone can then provide even better customer service!
