New Update

At AWS re:Invent 2013, Trend Micro Incorporated is showcasing a comprehensive, automated security solution for deployments on Amazon Web Services (AWS).Including key security capabilities such as anti-malware, firewall, intrusion prevention, encryption, and application scanning, this optimized solution empowers organizations to address their responsibilities under the AWS shared security model and keeps corporate applications and data safe. In addition, its first-of-its-kind licensing model is aligned to the way organizations purchase AWS instances, revolutionizing how security is purchased for cloud services. Ranked number one<1>in cloud security, the solution is powered by the Trend MicroTMDeep Security platform,which secures cloud instances, Web applications and sensitive enterprise data. Unlike traditional offerings with a singular focus on capabilities like anti-malware, the Deep Security platform is full-featured and easily deployed based on each customer's needs. As an AWS Advanced Technology Partner,Trend Micro is also the only security provider leveraging the new AWS Test Drive Program, equipping customers to evaluate a broad range of security capabilities for their deployment-in minutes and at no charge. "We were required to obtain PCI-DSS certification, in a short time, due to a requirement of one of our biggest customers. We chose Trend MicroTM SecureCloudTMservice and Deep Security because, with these solutions, we have been able to meet various requirements of the PCI-DSS in a modular, fully integrated way," said Renato Giuliana, cloud project manager, Vayon Insurance Solution Provider. "Other major differentiators we found were the fast implementation of the project and the affordable cost."
