HONGKONG SAR - Media OutReach -18 November 2020 - Trend MicroIncorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704),the leaderin cloud security,today announced it is a Launch Partner for AWS Network Firewall, amanaged service that makes it easy to deploy essential network protections forall of your Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) on Amazon Web Services(AWS). As a Launch Partner, Trend Micro has integrated managed threatintelligence feeds from its cloud security solution to enable superiorprotection inline with this new AWS managed firewall service.

As digital transformation is acceleratingglobally, businesses consider how to strategically protect their cloudenvironments while maintaining scalability and minimizing friction. See howTrend Micro continuouslyworks to provide easy to manage, scalable cloud security solutions to supportAWS customers as an AWS Advanced Technology Partner:

According to Gartner, "In the past,organizations deployed more than one firewall brand at the perimeter or infront of the demilitarized zone with an aim to provide an overlap of capabilityin case a single product could not be relied on... While this argument has somemerit -- back doors and vulnerabilities occasionally happen -- implementingmultiple firewalls increases management complexity and the potential for humanerror, reduces scalability, and increases operational costs.[1]"

Trend Micro's built-in IPSintelligence will inspect traffic for malicious intent so that the firewall canstop threats before they get a foothold in a virtual private cloud. Together,AWS and Trend Micro offer a simple, scalable service with reliable protectionthat does not require any infrastructuremanagement.
