Trend Micro has once again affirmed its leadership in the global server security market, according to industry analyst firm IDC.
In a market sized at over $800-million in 2014, Trend Micro has grown its revenue share for server security to 30,3%, outpacing both the market and competitors. For the sixth year in a row, the company has occupied the top spot for server security globally.
“IDC predicts the server security market to continue growing in importance, with virtualisation, cloud and hybrid deployments driving the need for a modern approach to security,” says Darryn O’Brien, country manager at Trend Micro Southern Africa. “Our leadership position in this market is a reflection of our focus on addressing hybrid cloud needs for our customers, delivering a comprehensive set of controls that can be centrally managed and automated for reduced operational impact across leading environments like VMware, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.”
Trend Micro’s Deep Security platform protects virtual desktops and servers, cloud, and hybrid architectures against zero-day malware and other threats while minimising operational impact from resource inefficiencies and emergency patching.
“When choosing a security solution, today’s enterprises are looking for comprehensive security capabilities that address all of their critical issues,” says Chris Christiansen, programme vice-president: security products and services at IDC. “Working with a trusted leader in server security is always a good choice – and Trend Micro has led the server security market for six years in a row.”
Trend Micro offers the Deep Security platform as both software and as a service, enabling customers to align their purchasing with their data centre and cloud strategy. Representative of Trend Micro’s commitment to the cloud market, Trend Micro Deep Security is also available on the AWS and Azure marketplaces, providing customers with additional purchasing flexibility.
“Almost all information security shops are outgunned every single day. We need a partner like Trend Micro to give us the firepower to fight back,” says Todd Forgie, vice president of IT and managed services, MEDHOST. “Trend Micro picks up outbreaks that other solutions miss. That’s why we decided to go pure-play with Trend Micro and we have not looked back.”
