Trend Micro International has joined the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance. A Gold Certified Microsoft Partner, Trend Micro has worked with Microsoft for over 20 years.
“Aligning with pioneers and innovators, such as Microsoft, reinforces our commitment to help end users protect data across their entire IT environment, from the desktop to the network and the cloud,” says Partha Panda, vice president, global channel and strategic alliance, Trend Micro. “The flexibility and reliability of the Microsoft cloud platform empowers enterprises to address growing business needs, while Trend Micro’s comprehensive solutions are specifically designed to deliver cloud security to maximise ROI and utilise the full benefits of the Microsoft cloud platform.”
As part of the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance, Trend Micro delivered its Deep Security product for Microsoft Azure to help secure cloud workloads. Available from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, Deep Security provides comprehensive, flexible security for applications and data to allow new cloud applications to be built and existing resources moved to the cloud with confidence.
In addition, Trend Micro recently launched Cloud App Security Solution for Microsoft Office 365. Cloud App Security enhances Office 365 with advanced threat protection controls. The solution extends Office 365’s built-in security with document exploit detection and sandbox malware analysis to detect zero-day malware and malicious code hidden in PDF or Office documents.
Additionally, it improves visibility into compliance with data loss prevention. Cloud App Security also keeps threats from migrating over OneDrive or SharePoint Online from mobile workers or trusted partners. It works in conjunction with Office 365 using APIs without the need to install software or re-route email traffic.
“Security is an utmost priority for organisations relying on the cloud,” says Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing, Microsoft Azure. “We look forward to offering our customers Trend Micro solutions that provide end-to-end protection from one of the foremost cloud security providers in the industry.”
Trend Micro is also a member of the Microsoft Active Protections Programme, which delivers security vulnerability information from the Microsoft Security Response Centre to update products and provide protections for zero-day vulnerabilities discussed in Microsoft Security Advisories.
