At Trend Micro, we’ve always prided ourselves on being innovators in security. A few years ago, we identified cloud computing as the next big trend and started investing. We invested both in building security solutions for our customers moving to the cloud and in delivering Security as a Service solutions from the cloud. When it comes to the cloud, there’s none bigger than AWS, which is why we’re delighted to announce Trend Micro’s participation in the AWS Software as a Service (SaaS) Partner Program. Working together under a shared responsibility model, we can we can make businesses all over the world more agile, productive and secure.
The Deep Security difference
But while the cloud offers unparalleled efficiency gains, cost savings and innovation potential, there are risks. We face an online opponent more determined, better resourced and more capable than ever before. Vulnerabilities are found and exploited in ever-greater volumes, sophisticated attacks are crafted to evade traditional security tools, and resource-poor IT managers are stretched to breaking point. Virtual and cloud environments bring with them their own challenges: inter VM attacks, instant-on gaps, security “storms” and the like.
That’s why Trend Micro built Deep Security – our flagship protection platform designed to protect physical, virtual and cloud environments from a centralized, single pane of glass. Its industry-leading virtual-ready architecture features hypervisor-level scanning, virtual patching and other functionality to protect against the most advanced threats around, while accelerating cloud ROI, preventing business disruption and supporting compliance efforts.
The power of AWS
Trend Micro is proud to be an AWS SaaS Partner. The performance, cost efficiency, global reach, and reliability of its industry-leading cloud computing platforms has enabled us to build Deep Security as a Service – a SaaS solution designed to augment strong existing AWS security with highly flexible, scalable threat protection for AWS workloads. We used virtually every AWS service going to architect the offering, including Amazon EC2, Amazon EBS, Amazon S3, Route 53, AWS Trusted Advisor, Amazon RDS, Amazon Elastic Load Balancer, and AWS Premium Support.
Here are just a few of the benefits we’ve already witnessed:
- Reduced time for product updates – from weeks to 1-2 days
- Reduced time to deployment
- AWS Test Drive helped us explain the benefits of Deep Security to customers in an educational manner
- Ability to spin up new test environments with ease improved our code quality
- AWS integration into the back-end development process improved our development lifecycle
- Excellent cost savings and flexibility enabled us to move the majority of internal workloads to AWS
- Superb back-up capabilities in Amazon RDS provide high assurance levels
With AWS solutions, you get unrivalled operational performance, reliability, cost efficiency and security. We’re looking forward to continue growing this relationship and taking advantage of these and more benefits to offer industry-leading protection for our customers’ mission-critical AWS workloads.
