Helping enterprises simply and efficiently address network security needs when migrating applications to the cloud
HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 12 July 2019 - Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704),
a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced the extension of
its industry leading network protection to the cloud, now available on Amazon
Web Services (AWS) Marketplace. This was delivered in response to the
operational challenges enterprises often experience with available network
security solutions. It will first be available for AWS Transit Gateway, with
multiple deployment models planned to follow.
"Cloud security is the highest priority for
AWS, and we are committed to helping customers achieve the highest levels of
security in the cloud," said Dave Brown, Vice
President, EC2 Compute & Networking Services at Amazon Web Services, Inc.
"As companies move and scale their infrastructure in the cloud, they are
looking for ways to easily insert and manage security appliances in their
network topologies. With AWS Transit Gateway, Trend Micro's security solution
is now available to 230,000 buyers through AWS Marketplace and will help our
shared customers address their network security needs in the cloud."
security solution was built to accommodate the growing amount of network teams
being tasked with extending their security to the cloud. It does so by
utilizing the AWS Transit Gateway, which simplifies
the routing between Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) and on-premises
networks by acting as a hub that controls traffic routing among all connected
spokes. For customers with particularly demanding network traffic, the option
to deploy on FPGA accelerated instances will be available with Amazon Elastic
Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) F1.
"We consistently hear from customers that they face
significant operational hurdles with today's firewall-based approaches to cloud
network security," said Steve Quane, Executive Vice President of Network
Defense and Hybrid Cloud Security at Trend Micro. "They introduce operational
complexity, are disruptive to deploy and are inefficient, due in large part to
complex networking requirements that are cumbersome in the cloud. Trend Micro's
approach removes these operational challenges. With transparent deployment into
the network fabric, it delivers scalable security and continuous visibility,
while eliminating the need to rearchitect and avoiding application disruption."
"We're very excited about what Cloud Network Protection
would allow for our network security in the cloud," said Alex Tarte, IT
Security & Risk Manager and Chief Information Security Officer of Copa
Airlines. "This solution will allow us to have frictionless security operations
for our business applications while meeting the scale and performance demands
of our business."
Cloud Network Protection, available today, will be listed on AWS Marketplace.
It leverages the power of Trend Micro Research, including the Zero Day Initiative
(ZDI) bug bounty program, to spot advanced targeted attacks, vulnerabilities
and exploits, and easily integrates with other security tools.
