Trend Micro rolls out new security software
Dubai, September 7, 2010
Trend Micro has unveiled the latest version of its advanced security software that protects operating systems, applications and data on physical, virtual and cloud servers, and virtual desktops.
The launch of Trend Micro Deep Security 7.5 is aimed at extending the company's leadership in virtualization and cloud security, said a top official at VMworld 2010, the global conference for virtualization and cloud computing, held in San Francisco.
“Deep Security 7.5 offers the world's first anti-malware solution that is specifically designed for virtual environments and can be completely deployed with zero footprint on the virtual machine. This leads to maximum security and efficiency for our customers,” said Steve Quane, chief product officer of Trend Micro.
It leverages the latest VMware vShield Endpoint API and now comes with a new agentless anti-malware module that adds to the product’s existing toolkit of protections including: intrusion detection and prevention, web application protection, application control, stateful firewall, integrity monitoring and log inspection.
'Although anti-malware protection is widely deployed across organizations of all sizes within virtual environments, traditional deployments perform poorly leading to lower levels of virtual machine consolidation, and generally impede virtualization efforts,” he added.
“Trend Micro continues to work closely with us to help ensure the compatibility of Deep Security within VMware environments,” said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware.
“Leveraging our latest VMware vShield Endpoint API, Deep Security now includes more secure and high-performance anti-malware protection, a crucial and significant ingredient for customers doing business in today’s virtualized IT environments,” he added.
“Trend Micro Deep Security is an advanced security solution that protects operating systems, applications and data on physical, virtual and cloud server and virtual desktop environments,” said Richard Stiennon, chief research analyst, IT-Harvest.
“This advanced protection, which includes anti-malware and server and application defense solutions, helps ensure compliance, while allowing higher server consolidation rates, and maximizing performance and operational flexibility,” he remarked.
Trend Micro Deep Security 7.5 is designed to prevent data breaches and business disruptions from emergency patching by providing a line of defense at the system itself, whether physical, virtual or cloud, the company said.-TradeArabia News Service
