Trend Micro, a global provider of cyber security solutions, has announced the availability of Trend Micro Deep Security 10 – powered by XGen Security. XGen Security is a blend of cross-generational threat defense techniques.
Deep Security is designed to protect physical, virtual and cloud servers across leading environments such as VMware, Amazon Web Services (AWS Cloud) and Microsoft Azure, adding multiple new security techniques that have been optimized for maximum performance, operational efficiency and response to newly discovered threats.
Deep Security is optimized for VMware, AWS and Microsoft Azure deployments, delivering full visibility that enables automated discovery and protection of servers. This new release would add many integration and management enhancements, including faster connection and time to protection for AWS and Azure cloud workloads, along with support for the latest Azure account format, Azure Resource Manager v2 (ARM). It also expands beyond server workloads to protect Docker containers, leveraging “proven” techniques like anti-malware, IPS and application control to protect dynamic container deployments.
As a part of the XGen Security strategy, Deep Security 10 adds multiple new security techniques, including the prevention of unauthorized software changes with application control. Reimagined for the hybrid cloud, the new application control feature can protect servers from sophisticated attacks such as ransom-ware, even when applications are constantly changing and elastic workloads are distributed across virtual and cloud environments.
Focused on further enhancing the ability to detect unknown threats, Deep Security 10 supports sandbox integration with Trend Micro Deep Discovery, and will also soon add machine learning to its ever-growing list of advanced threat defense techniques.
“Multiple techniques are essential to defend against the sophistication of today’s threats. But companies need to conduct security at the speed of business, and security must support the agility and flexibility of modern architectures that include virtualization and cloud,” said Duncan Brown, associate vice president, security practice, IDC. “With the introduction of Deep Security 10, Trend Micro delivers a continually growing number of security techniques that have been optimized for protecting workloads across the hybrid cloud, combined with visibility that clearly reflects their position as the market-share leader for server security.”
