SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., April 30 — Trend Micro Inc., a global leader in cloud security, today announced new advancements in its Cloud and Data Center Security solution that simplify, automate, and extend security for organizations running their enterprise applications and storing sensitive data in the cloud, including Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments.
Automatic, Cloud-based Security for AWS
Trend Micro Deep Security as a Service provides a comprehensive suite of security capabilities delivered from the cloud that are specifically designed to augment AWS' existing security capabilities. Deep Security as a Service takes advantage of AWS APIs to automate and simplify the deployment process while not impeding the flexibility and scalability of AWS. The service offers:
"Ensuring the security of our customers' data is our top priority. We work closely with our partners like Trend Micro to help them provide security solutions that complement the existing Amazon Web Services security features," said Terry Wise, head of worldwide partner ecosystem, Amazon Web Services. "We see Trend Micro's latest innovations and offerings as valuable capabilities for organizations to easily and effectively extend proven security practices to their cloud deployments."
Extending data protection to the cloud
Customers of all sizes have identified encryption of sensitive data as one of the key security capabilities that organizations should leverage for certain workloads. As part of this announcement, Trend Micro is also introducing the latest version of its breakthrough cloud encryption and key management product, designed to extend additional data protection to cloud environments. With Trend Micro SecureCloud 3.5, organizations can take advantage of several new enhancements focused on supporting the benefits of the elastic cloud:
"As more of our clients are taking advantage of the cloud benefits by moving to AWS, they are coming to Accuvant seeking solutions that include added protection," said Jason Prost, Accuvant solutions director. "Trend Micro cloud security offerings help organizations that are deploying on AWS by extending the capabilities available to protect critical servers, applications, and sensitive data. As such, they are frequently included in our client discussions as an important component of a holistic cloud security solution."
"In the cloud world, proliferation is the enemy of protection," said Wendy Nather, research director of the Enterprise Security Practice at 451 Research. "Enterprises need to be able to add essential security controls in an agile manner; they have to support cloud operations, not slow them down. Trend Micro's Deep Security as a Service offering has been designed with these needs in mind."
"As organizations move to the cloud, they take on shared responsibility for their security with their cloud or Infrastructure as a Service partner," says Kevin Simzer, senior vice president, marketing and business development, Trend Micro "While cloud providers take on responsibility for things like physical access control and hypervisor security, responsibility to protect the environment from the guest operating system and above remains a customer driven activity. At Trend Micro, we want to make it easy to add the required security that fits into the agile nature of how organizations are using the cloud."
Trend Micro Deep Security as a Service is available today and delivers its suite of security capabilities for Windows and Linux instances deployed in Amazon EC2 and VPC environments.
Trend Micro SecureCloud 3.5 will be available globally in May, 2013. SecureCloud represents a robust offering for safeguarding information in private clouds and public Infrastructure-as-a-Service environments. SecureCloud supports Amazon EC2, Eucalyptus, and the VMware platform.
