New Delhi, India, May 20, 2013: Trend Micro Inc., a 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:
- Proven Security for servers deployed in the AWS environment. Trend Micro Deep Security, already selected by thousands of customers to protect millions of server instances, delivers enhanced security to AWS’s core offerings including host-based intrusion detection/prevention and firewall, hosted on AWS. These complement additional key capabilities for securing servers, including anti-malware, web reputation, and file integrity monitoring, as a part of a single, integrated suite. Deep Security as a Service offers customizable policy templates and automated rules managed from a single administrative console, dramatically reducing administration time.
- Security capabilities built on the cloud, for the cloud. To support the way businesses use the cloud, Trend Micro Deep Security as a service is built on AWS, leveraging the power and agility of the cloud to deliver a scalable, highly available service. Deep Security as a Service can be setup and deployed in minutes, supporting the elastic way that organizations use the cloud. Through this innovative service, organizations can easily add additional enterprise security capabilities to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) deployments. These capabilities can be immediately and automatically turned on when a new Amazon EC2 instance is created, removing the risk of time lag between creation and additional security tuning. The service also comes with an investment model that reflects this on-demand environment–a simple flat rate per server hour.
- Optimized for organizations using AWS. Deep Security is optimized for AWS deployments to dramatically reduce the time and cost of setting up and maintaining additional security best practices. Itprovides instant-on active deployment of host-based intrusion detection/prevention and firewall, as well as anti-malware, web reputation, and file integrity monitoring. The included autosync capabilitydynamically detects new Amazon EC2 instances allowing customers to maintain security policies as their environment scales.It also provides detailed Amazon EC2 specific instance information that can be used to automatically extendsecurity policies without administrator intervention.
Terry Wise, head of worldwide partner ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, said, “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. 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.”
Kevin Simzer, vice president, business development and global alliances, Trend Micro, said, “As organizations move to the cloud, they take on shared responsibility for their security with their cloud or Infrastructure as a Service partner. 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 delivers its suite of security capabilities for Windows and Linux instances deployed in Amazon EC2 and VPC environments. The service is available in North American now and will be launched in Asia Pacific next year.
