CUPERTINO, Calif., July 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As the mid-market continues to expand across all business segments, Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) today announced channel program enhancements to streamline access to the Trend Micro Cloud and Data Center Security solution.
With an initial focus on Trend Micro™ Deep Security, program updates include improvements to the Deal Registration and Specialization Programs, as well as a new On-Demand Marketing platform that will help partners improve sales and strengthen revenue streams. Deep Security provides mid-market companies with enterprise-grade technology to guard against data breaches and business disruptions for physical, virtual and cloud servers.
"Mid-market companies present a tremendous business opportunity for our channel partners and we want to support them with one of the most innovative and reliable security solutions available," said Partha Panda, vice president of US Channel Sales, Trend Micro.

Trend Micro Deep Security will serve as a key component in their sales arsenal with simple to use and easy-to-manage functionality, providing customers with the protection they need, backed by the strength of Trend Micro."
As part of the Trend Micro Cloud and Data Center Security Solution, Deep Security's innovative technology has been broadly adopted among large global enterprises and is well suited to meet the same physical, virtualized and cloud security needs of the mid-market. The platform utilizes agentless and agent-based protection to automatically secure virtual servers and desktops, as well as private and public clouds.
This all-in-one solution integrates anti-malware, web reputation and firewall in addition to intrusion prevention, integrity monitoring and log inspection to protect mission-critical applications and data. Deep Security enables organizations to virtually patch critical systems, proactively identifying and eliminating vulnerabilities before they can be compromised. It also helps organizations comply with key regulatory requirements, including PCE DSS 2.0, HIPAA, FISMA/NIST, NERC and SAS 70.
To support channel partners' customer outreach and sales enablement, program enhancements include:
- Deal Registration – A comprehensive program that delivers greater support, resources and incentives to empower partners to gain market share through more qualified sales, simplified margin structure and streamlined registration.
- Specialization Program – Partners receive additional margin for establishing expertise in specific focus areas, including the mid-market and Trend Micro solutions such as Deep Security.
