Sydney, June 15, 2018 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, has announced the expansion of its security solution for containers with Deep Security™ Smart Check. This component provides continuous container image scanning to complement the existing Deep Security runtime container protection.
To spot malware and vulnerabilities most effectively, Trend Micro built Deep Security Smart Check to scan container images before deployment. The result is that security issues often can be resolved in the development cycle as opposed to after the release of the application.
“There is a lot of value in a solution that enables devs to recognise potential security issues early and act quickly. Increasingly, our customers are adopting container based security solutions and we believe this new capability from Trend Micro will help our customers improve their security posture and deployment agility,” said Simon Morse, Security and Identity Practice Manager at Versent.
Additionally, Trend Micro is launching an extensive new suite of APIs and an automation center with resources to help enable security automation through better integrations. Trend Micro Deep Security customers use product APIs to enable continuous delivery, status monitoring, IT service management and orchestration tools integration, such as the newly launched Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes.
“Container platforms are enabling organisations to achieve faster software development release cycles, and they do not accept slowing down for additional security measures,” said Bill McGee, SVP and GM of Hybrid Cloud Security at Trend Micro. “All workload environments require security – container environments are no different. Their sheer volume and temporary nature can create security gaps for attackers to exploit. We can also expect that attackers who attack live server application environments will move their focus to the software build cycle, trying to deploy malware from within the build environment.”
Organisations are increasingly shifting their workloads into hybrid cloud services. Deep Security Smart Check supports the DevOps demands to continuously build secure, ship fast and run anywhere. It is another example of how Trend Micro Deep Security continues to provide advanced protection and adapt to customer infrastructure change, from virtualisation, to public cloud, and now container environments.
Deep Security Smart Check is available globally and for more information, see here.
