Trend Micro's Two Newest Cloud Security Products for the Enterprise Optimal Enterprise Virtualization and Cloud Security: The "Journey" Begins

OTTAWA, Feb. 15 /CNW/ - Trend Micro today announced two new product releases to help enterprises reap the benefits of virtualization and cloud computing.

Trend Micro™ SecureCloud 1.1 provides enterprise-class data protection through encryption in the cloud, while Trend Micro™ Deep Security 7.5 Update 1 offers performance improvements that will enable the Deep Security virtual appliance to provide agentless intrusion detection and prevention using the VMware VMsafe APIs for higher virtual machine density levels.

These products (www.trendmicro.com) have achieved both market and industry recognition:

  • IDC reported that Trend Micro ranks #1 in worldwide server security market share.
  • The Tolly Group's performance report found that Trend Micro Deep Security outperforms traditional AV solutions from Symantec and McAfee in the use of key system resources, enabling organizations to achieve over three times the virtual machine density than with these other AV solutions.
  • Trend Micro Deep Security agentless anti-malware has seen a groundswell of interest in the market with approximately 200 new customers acquired in the first three months that the solution has been in the market. Roughly half of these customers are net new to Trend Micro

Trend Micro Secures the Journey to Virtualization and Cloud

Virtualization has become a catalyst for cloud computing by accelerating the transformation of data centers into private clouds. As organizations adopt private cloud technologies, it becomes easier to move applications from corporate servers to public clouds. Trend Micro predicts that enterprises will move many of their applications completely to public clouds once public cloud providers address major enterprise concerns that hold back cloud adoption, namely availability and visibility.

"Most customers have completed the first phase of the journey by securing workloads on virtualized servers using traditional network security techniques. In 2011 customers will look to optimize virtual security performance as they virtualize more traffic-heavy applications. This includes security technologies that integrate with the virtual machine hypervisor. As companies take their first steps into hybrid clouds, data protection will be critical. And as sensitive data moves beyond corporate firewalls, companies must maintain control of information," said Bill McGee, Trend Micro 's Ottawa based Vice President of Data Centre Research and Development.

Trend Micro: Multi-layered protection for virtualized and cloud environments

Trend Micro provides security "from the cloud" with the Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ infrastructure, and security "for the cloud" with server and encryption technologies. The company offers multi-layered protection to data residing in the private or public cloud, as well as virtualized environments.

Trend Micro continues to be the first and only security solution in the market to offer this agentless anti-virus capability designed for the VMware platform. 

What others say:

"The major challenge for enterprises will be how to proceed from where they are today, through a transitional or hybrid period, to where they will be in the future. Cloud security solutions, such as what Trend Micro offers, are sufficiently flexible to accommodate this diversity. As organizations move toward cloud computing, they can rely on Trend Micro to secure their data, no matter where it resides."
Bill Gillis, eHealth Technical Director, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, a teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School.

"The vision for cloud computing security is clear: appropriate security at every computing endpoint and data security through encryption techniques that ensure that the encryption keys which govern access to the data are held securely as well. Trend Micro's new products address both of those requirements and enable enterprises to address the primary concern most CIOs voice about cloud computing: security."
Bernard Golden, CEO, HyperStratus 

"We are excited about the new version of Trend Micro Deep Security and the opportunity it provides our customers in being able to achieve the economic benefits of virtualization and cloud computing without compromising security. The capabilities of Deep Security in terms of advanced technologies such as anti-malware, intrusion prevention, web application protection and integrity monitoring delivered across physical, virtual and cloud servers in both agent-based and virtual appliance form factors is truly unparalleled."
Chris Reed, INXI, VMware Partner of the Year for 2010
