Trend Micro unveils VMware security solution
Dubai, July 3, 2014
Trend Micro, a long-time VMware security partner, has launched a solution for VMware’s vCloud Hybrid Service which will enable customers to move their on-premise or private cloud deployment to the public cloud.
The Trend Micro Deep Security solution, which is designed to reduce cost and complexity, features a comprehensive platform for security controls and policies managed across physical, virtual and cloud environments, said a statement.
Partha Panda, vice president of global channels and strategic alliances, said: “As VMware introduces new cloud capabilities, we are expanding our relationship to further align our efforts to extend customers’ security capabilities so they can leverage the ROI of the cloud with confidence that data will remain safe.
“This offering delivers on-premise-style security in hybrid cloud environments without compromising performance or productivity.”
Deep Security for vCloud Hybrid Service will allow customers to fulfill their security responsibilities by easily extending on-premise security to their cloud workloads.
By leveraging Deep Security’s inter-operability with VMware vCloud Director and other VMware technologies, administrators can automatically detect virtual machines (VMs) and can apply context-based policies to them for consistent security across the datacentre and into the public cloud.
Among other capabilities, customers will benefit from features such as virtual patching, which shield the VMs from vulnerabilities, decreasing risk and reducing patch management overhead.
Ajay Patel, vice president, vCloud Hybrid Service, VMware, said: “Security is a priority for our customers as they migrate to the public cloud from on-premise or hybrid environments. With the Trend Micro Deep Security solution on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, customers can now seamlessly extend their security policies from on-premise to cloud and benefit from advanced threat protection for their hybrid workloads.”
The solutions capabilities include intrusion detection and prevention, anti-malware, integrity monitoring, vulnerability scanning, firewall and SSL to simplify security operations while enabling regulatory compliance and accelerating the ROI of virtualisation and cloud initiatives. - TradeArabia News Service
