Trend Micro announces Deep Security 10 for protecting servers across the hybrid cloudNew XGen™ security features enhance server protection and extend to container architectures

SYDNEY, 8 February 2017 – Trend Micro Incorporated today announced the upcoming availability of Trend Micro Deep Security 10, powered by XGen™ Security. XGen™ Security is a blend of cross-generational threat defence techniques fueled by market leading threat intelligence, and powers all Trend Micro security solutions.

With this release, Deep Security continues its industry leadership protecting physical, virtual and cloud servers across leading environments such as VMware, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, adding multiple new security techniques that have been optimised for maximum performance, operational efficiency and response to newly discovered threats.

The increasing adoption of virtualisation and cloud is driving organisations to change and simplify their approach to security, stepping back from traditional approaches and embracing modern solutions. Trend Micro believes leading analyst firm Gartner’s recommendation for securing cloud workloads reinforces this: “Don't assume end-user endpoint protection platform solutions are best-suited to protect cloud server workloads, which have vastly different protection requirements."1 In the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms, Trend Micro is positioned the highest and furthest in the Leaders quadrant for its ability to execute and completeness of vision.2 Deep Security is one of the Trend Micro products evaluated in the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.2 

“Bulletproof’s key enterprise customers need assurance that their assets across private and public clouds are protected to meet their compliance needs. We’ve found the powerful differentiation that the Deep Security adds to our offering is a strong attractor for clients as they partner with us on their cloud transformation journey," said Bulletproof Co-founder and CEO, Anthony Woodward.

Broad range of protection techniques
Deep Security includes a smart blend of cross generational threat defence techniques for protecting servers from known bad threats, including anti-malware and intrusion prevention (IPS) to detect and stop sophisticated attacks. As a part of the XGen™ Security strategy, Deep Security 10 adds multiple new security techniques, including the prevention of unauthorised software changes with application control. Reimagined for the hybrid cloud, the new application control feature can protect servers from sophisticated attacks such as ransomware, 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 defence techniques.

Continuing a different approach to hybrid cloud security management
Deep Security is optimised for VMware, AWS and Microsoft Azure deployments, delivering full visibility that enables automated discovery and protection of servers. This new release adds many integration and management enhancements, including faster connection and time to protection for AWS and Azure 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.

“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 virtualisation and cloud," said Duncan Brown, associate vice president, security practice for IDC. “With the introduction of Deep Security 10, Trend Micro delivers a continually growing number of security techniques that have been optimised for protecting workloads across the hybrid cloud, combined with visibility that clearly reflects their position as the market-share leader for server security."

“In addition to embracing and helping our customers with important new infrastructure changes like Docker containers, Deep Security 10 also addresses the need to purchase security differently," said Indi Siriniwasa, enterprise sales and channel director for Trend Micro Australia and New Zealand. “Deep Security is available as software, as-a-service, and through the AWS and Azure marketplaces, giving organisations unparalleled purchasing flexibility, including per hour pricing matched to the cloud."

Deep Security 10 will be available in March 2017. For more information about Deep Security and security for the hybrid cloud, please visit here.
