Eva Chen

Eva Chen, one of the three most powerful Taiwanese women in tech, is also a global cybersecurity leader


Trend Micro cemented its position as a leader in cloud security when it launched Cloud One, a unified security platform that allows organizations to transfer their data centers into the cloud with layered protection across networks. Originally selling antivirus software, the company was founded in 1988 by Chen, her sister Jenny and brother-in-law Steve Chang.  

Eva Chen became CEO in 2004, and spends her week supercommuting between Los Angeles, where her family lives; Taipei, where she meets with the Asian-based teams; and finally Tokyo, where the company is headquartered. Chen advocates strongly for diversity in the IT industry through initiatives like Close the Gap, which was launched in 2018 to help women find more opportunities in tech. Partnering with the non-profit group Girls in Tech, Trend Micro developed a Cybersecurity Fundamentals course for its members, covering network security threats, malware, and other relevant topics.
