DALLAS and PALO ALTO, Calif., June 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- As organizations transition to the cloud, Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a long-time VMware security partner, today announced a solution for VMware's vCloud® Hybrid Service™ which enables customers to seamlessly move their on-premise or private cloud deployment to the public cloud. Designed to reduce cost and complexity, Trend Micro™ Deep Security solution features a comprehensive platform for security controls and policies managed across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
"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," said Partha Panda, vice president of global channels and strategic alliances, Trend Micro. "This offering delivers on-premise-style security in hybrid cloud environments without compromising performance or productivity."
Deep Security for vCloud Hybrid Service allows customers to fulfill their security responsibilities by easily extending on-premise security to their cloud workloads. By leveraging Deep Security's interoperability 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 datacenter 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.
"Security is a priority for our customers as they migrate to the public cloud from on-premise or hybrid environments," said Ajay Patel, vice president, vCloud Hybrid Service, VMware. "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."
A component of Trend Micro's Cloud and Data Center Security solution, Deep Security combines security capabilities, including 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 virtualization and cloud initiatives.
