Zero Trust Comes to Industry’s Broadest Cybersecurity Platform

Trend Micro Zero Trust Risk Insights reveals and prioritises risks for better decision making

SYDNEY, September 28, 2021 – Zero Trust is a term frequently touted but rarely implemented authentically by cybersecurity providers. Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704) is changing that with the full release of its risk insights capability following a beta test with 3,500 enterprises. The industry’s broadest Zero Trust risk assessment solution now forms a critical component of Trend Micro’s unified cybersecurity platform.

A comprehensive understanding of risk is the foundation for effective security prioritisation and automatic access control decision making with Zero Trust. Many other vendors that claim to employ Zero Trust overlook this vital component in their own security philosophy. Trend Micro gives customers a complete understanding of their risk so security teams can make informed decisions and implement effective solutions rather than simply exchanging one piece of cybersecurity infrastructure for another.

“Some of the downsides of digital transformation projects are legacy security systems causing issues and an almost unmanageable expansion of complexity,” said Joel Stradling, Research Director European Security & Privacy, IDC. “To compound this, the threat landscape is increasingly sophisticated making defence strategies similarly complex. Information is king, and Trend Micro's Zero Trust Risk Insights gives CISOs better visibility into an organisation's security risk, which in turn helps organisations shed several layers of management complexity and achieve a stronger security posture.”

Built on Trend Micro’s complete cybersecurity platform, the service is designed to continually assess the risk of identities, devices, and cloud applications using telemetry across endpoint, email, cloud, networks, and SaaS applications. That risk insight is used to automatically detect, block, or remediate issues before a connection is completed. Customers also benefit from continuous security posture assessment and complete insights without requiring additional apps or agents.

“This new solution adds further telemetry and visibility of connections across the entire IT environment to truly inform SOC teams,” said Mick McCluney, Technical Director ANZ, Trend Micro. “The risk and security of users, devices, and apps can be easily seen, issues prioritised in a way unique to Trend Micro’s platform capabilities. This is true Zero Trust theory put into product form.”

As the evolving threat landscape continues to garner attention amidst high profile security incidents, decision makers at enterprises worldwide are beginning to realise the benefits of a broad Zero Trust solution.

“The challenges we face in securing our infrastructure are only growing more complex,” said Chase Renes, System Administrator, Vision bank. “Understanding our risks and potential vulnerabilities and how attackers will try to exploit them is the foundation of good cybersecurity. Trend Micro provides a complete picture of our security posture and allows us to eliminate or prevent threats before they surface.”
