New security as a service solution offers comprehensive automated
scanning and expert security testing, automatic application protection,
and unlimited SSL certificates
TORONTO, June 11, 2013 /CNW/ - With the growth of web applications
combined with ever-increasing threats, Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) is empowering organizations to address the need for advanced,
continuous security across all web applications. Trend Micro™ Web App Security is a first-of-its-kind comprehensive service offering that provides
enterprise-grade security with proven vulnerability detection and
protection for web applications and the platforms they are deployed on
throughout an organization. Aligning with Trend Micro's vision that all
Web application communications can be secure, the cloud-based service
includes the ability to issue unlimited SSL certificates and can be
calibrated to the specific security needs of each application.
"You can't get a clear picture of your vulnerabilities without both
automated and manual testing, and you need to test the whole
stack," said Wendy Nather, research director of the Enterprise Security
Practice at 451 Research. "Integrating all of this testing makes it much easier for the
enterprise to be consistent and thorough in its risk assessments."
A part of the Trend Micro Cloud and Data Center Security Solution, the comprehensive service delivers detection capabilities across web
applications and the platform environments they are deployed on.
Detection extends beyond vulnerabilities alone to include web
application malware checking and web reputation management giving
organizations a complete picture of their web security posture. Web App Security also includes automatic protection at the platform level and native
integration with leading web application firewalls to provide a closed
loop of protection that is simple to manage and easy to deploy. By
offering an intelligent approach to web application scanning that
includes both automated and expert analysis, false positives can be
avoided and organizations empowered to focus on actual areas of
concern, including compliance auditors for regulations like PCI and
"For organizations that face rigorous regulations, such as HIPAA in the
health care environment, securing data is essential," said Carl Minear,
administrative director of technology infrastructure, Florida Hospital.
"Ensuring that our information is safe when made accessible through a
Web application can be a security and cost challenge, but Trend Micro
provides effective and affordable security for all of our sensitive
clinical applications through a single, integrated offering."
Incorporated directly into the offering, unlimited SSL certificates
provide organizations with the peace-of-mind that their applications
are protected with enterprise-class security without the significant
costs incurred from traditional vendors. Trend Micro SSL certificates
are widely trusted across all major browsers on PC, Mac and mobile
devices. In addition, enterprise-class management is tightly integrated
into the central console of Web App Security for a seamless administrative experience.
"As attacks grow in sophistication and volume, our team is working
diligently to ensure that customers are ready," said Kevin Simzer,
senior vice president, marketing and business development, Trend Micro.
"Providing comprehensive detection and protection capabilities through
a scalable cloud service helps to set Trend Micro apart from
traditional offerings. Organizations deploying Web App Security are able to benefit from proven security combined with a compelling
package of cost-effective detection, protection and SSL certificates."
Web App Security was developed with Trend Micro's leading security capabilities in
conjunction with two recent technology acquisitions. Detection
functionality is supported by the acquisition of an established Web
application scanning service, IndusGuard from Indusface. With more than 500 existing customers and a veteran team
of Web security experts, this acquisition complements Trend Micro's
current Web security expertise. The SSL component of the solution stems
from the acquisition of startup AffirmTrust—from the founders of
GeoTrust—which provides industry-first access to unlimited SSL
certificates, including the highly secure Extended Validation (EV)
