All over the world, businesses are embracing cloud computing. From operational efficiency and greater business agility, to cost savings and even green IT gains, the benefits are well-known. Microsoft Azure has long been a leader when it comes to IaaS and PaaS platforms. But the cloud also requires customers and cloud service providers to take on shared responsibility when it comes to protecting their applications and data.
Since its launch in 2010, Azure has been helping businesses worldwide become more IT efficient, agile, cost effective, and productive. It’s no surprise that Gartner recently placed it in the prestigious Magic Quadrant “leaders” category for IaaS. By leveraging the power of Microsoft’s highly secure, highly reliable infrastructure to run and create applications, VMs, mobile and web services, analytics and more, organizations get massive scalability, faster time to market, and all the support they need to innovate and grow.
Microsoft has done a great job of securing the Azure platform. But end customers also have a big role to play in security under a shared responsibility model. That’s where Trend Micro Deep Security comes in – enabling them to take advantage of those key Azure benefits while meeting the security and compliance requirements of the cloud.
Deep Security provides a complete platform of security capabilities for your virtual machines:
Defend against network attacks. Proactive intrusion prevention (IDS/IPS) automatically prevents attacks, delivering instant protection for your workloads without slowing systems down.
Virtually patch software. Stop scrambling with emergency fixes for vulnerabilities like Heartbleed or SQL injection flaws, and instantly shield workloads with virtual patching.
Keep malware off workloads. Protect your Windows and Linux workloads from increasingly complex malware, identifying and removing malware, and blocking traffic to known bad domains.
Uncover suspicious changes. Get alerts when unplanned or malicious changes are made to your systems, without sorting through thousands of logs.
Deep Security is built to work seamlessly with Microsoft Azure to preserve all the benefits of the cloud:
Easy deployment. Built into the Azure marketplace and compatible with leading cloud deployment tools (ex. Chef, Puppet, PowerShell, etc.) means security can be easily built into an elastic Azure environment.
Instant On security. Ensures new virtual machines are automatically recognized at launch with security initiated, to dramatically reduce the risk of any instances going unprotected.
Automatic policy application. Specific customizable policy templates are applied based on virtual machine information, so the right policies are applied to the right servers, automatically.
