Here at Trend Micro we are constantly trying to make securing cloud workloads easier. Four years ago, we launched Deep Security as a Service to simplify how cloud workloads are secured, and the growth of the service has been phenomenal. Thousands of AWS users depend on Deep Security as a Service to protect their elastic EC2 workloads. Deep Security provides layered security through a single security agent managed in the cloud. Using the context provided from running inside the instance, Deep Security provides the right protection at the right time. The service protects against vulnerabilities like Shellshock and Heartbleed, web attacks like SQL Injection and XSS and much more. Deep Security also shields you from malware on both Windows and Linux and gives you immediate visibility into all of your Hybrid IT workloads.
Hosting the management for Deep Security makes it easy to get up and running with Deep Security, but we didn’t stop there. Back in October we made Payment Card Industry (PCI-DSS) projects easier by certifying the SaaS as well. Now organizations with cloud workloads that deal with payment data can meet many of the PCI-DSS requirements with a single agent delivered by a cloud-based service!
And our mission continues. Just like the AWS philosophy, we will never stop making it easier to sign up, deploy, configure and procure Deep Security as a Service. Today, working closely with AWS, we are making another big step forward in how you pay for securing workloads in the cloud.
Starting today, you can have all of the great features of Deep Security as a Service and pay through your single AWS bill! That’s right, you can now use the AWS Marketplace to find, subscribe-to and pay for multiple SaaS solutions all on your AWS bill. The fantastic AWS Marketplace team has made it very easy and Trend Micro is excited to once again be a launch partner.
Back in April, we launched our metered appliance offering on the AWS Marketplace. This was a huge step allowing you to pay by what you secure. Either 1, 3 or 6 cents an hour per EC2 instance (depending on the instance type).
Now we bring this same great pricing to the SaaS option, all on your AWS bill. With the SaaS you no longer have to setup the appliance (and the RDS service to store the data), nor do you have to pay for that infrastructure. Trend Micro hosts all of this for you and helps you secure your instances the easy way.
Can’t predict how many instances you’ll have? No problem, with AWS Marketplace you pay per-hour for Deep Security on your AWS bill. That means no sales people, no procurement process and never having to worry about renewals. Security doesn’t have to be an obstacle.
Deep Security as a Service also offers the latest, greatest innovations in security, often before they are available in our AMI Marketplace offer or software management.
