The FIFA Women’s World Cup of Soccer is underway, and countries such as Germany, USA, Japan, England and Brazil are all recognized as favorites because of their experienced teams with trusted leadership. These traits make them the most likely countries to capture the championship. Knowledgeable soccer fans appreciate the experience and leadership these teams bring to the pitch each and every match.
In the world of virtualization and cloud environments, VMware is an experienced player who has been at the forefront of delivering some of the most important technology advancements in the space. Most recently, VMware introduced One Cloud, Any Application, Any Device™, which enables IT to build a unified hybrid cloud across public, private and managed clouds. Their software-defined data center architecture brings together best-in-class compute, storage, networking virtualization, and management offerings, while a unified hybrid cloud enables organizations to rapidly develop, automatically deliver and manage all of their enterprise applications – no matter where they reside – from one, unified platform.
VMware is constantly recognized for providing powerful virtualization infrastructure and has consistently kept security considerations at the forefront of its innovation. Working together for years, VMware and Trend Micro have jointly innovated to provide the most optimized security solution for VMware environments. In addition, Trend Micro solutions are architected to integrate into the VMware platform at a granular level to improve the overall virtualization experience.
I’ve highlighted a few key examples of Trend Micro and VMware’s rich history of joint development and innovation:
- Deep Security 7.0 was the first solution supporting introspection of network traffic through the hypervisor.
- Trend Micro released the first anti-malware introspection using VDDK.
- Trend Micro and VMware joined forces to develop a next-generation endpoint security API allowing for full agentless introspection of file systems.
- VMware vShield launched with Deep Security 7.5, the first and only partner solution to support VMware vShield—establishing the first fully “agent-less” anti-malware.
- Deep Security 8.0, supporting the latest vShield security ecosystem, offered the only fully-agentless security platform to include anti-malware, intrusion prevention and integrity monitoring.
- Deep Security 9.0, supporting the latest vSphere 5.1 platform, provided security for hybrid clouds and vCloud-based service providers via vCloud Director integration.
- Deep Security 9.5 integrated with VMware NSX platform, supported the VMware vCloud Air and featured a plugin for vCenter Operations Manager.
Trend Micro is an experienced leader in server security and delivers a comprehensive security platform optimized for the VMware environment. This tightly-integrated Deep Security platform with multi-vector threat protection capabilities is built to work seamlessly with all the key VMware solutions, including vSphere, NSX, vCloud Air, Horizon VDI/DaaS, and vRealize Operations.
As the FIFA Women’s World Cup enters the elimination rounds, the fans of those teams with veteran experience and trusted leadership will be the ones with the best chance to see their teams crowned “World Champions.” In the same way, VMware and Trend Micro joint customers rely on their experience and leadership positions in virtualization and security to ensure they continue to win (meet their business objectives) without being distracted or slowed down by attacks on their software-defined data center.
