New threat management solution focuses on targeted attack detection and analysis
OTTAWA, Feb. 27, 2012 /CNW/ - Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cloud security leader, today announced Deep Discovery, the third generation of Trend Micro's threat management solution. Deep Discovery delivers new features and performance designed to help large enterprise and government organizations combat advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks.
APTs and Targeted Attacks are the new norm and here is why:
- Targeted attacks and APTs are becoming commonplace across a wide range of industries and organizations
- Consumerization, virtualization and cloud computing are weakening the role of perimeter security and further opening the network to these attacks.
- Because standard security defenses cannot detect or prevent these attacks, new proactive measures and specialized technology as part of risk management due diligence are recommended.
- Large enterprise and government organizations are demanding specialized threat detection and analysis capabilities to reduce their risk of attack and data loss.
Deep Discovery Combats APTs and Targeted Attacks
Trend Micro Deep Discovery provides the network-wide visibility; insight and control needed to reduce the risk of APTs and targeted attacks. Specialized detection engines focus on identifying advanced malware and human attacker activity across all the stages of a targeted attack sequence. And, real-time dashboards provide the in-depth analysis and actionable intelligence needed to prevent, discover and contain attacks against corporate data.
"Deep Discovery is the result of Trend Micro's thorough understanding of targeted attacks around the world, interviews with our major customers, and the input of a special product advisory board from leading organizations and government agencies," said Jim Short, Trend Micro Canada General Manager and Senior Vice President. "Working together we have created an innovative solution to effectively combat APTs and targeted attacks."
Meeting the Needs of Large Enterprise and Government Customers
Deep Discovery delivers a broad set of features important to any size organization, but especially critical to larger organizations wishing to reduce the risk of targeted attack.
Deep Discovery is now integrated with leading SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) platforms to allow SIEM customers to combine Deep Discovery's unique network intelligence with the full range of events collected and analyzed by SIEM.
