They also turned to trusted partners to manage and mitigate the resulting cyber risk. That’s created a market for cloud workload security which surged 36% year-on-year in 2021, according to the IDC market share report.

As business-critical cloud-native applications increase complexity and broaden the corporate cyber-attack surface, Trend Micro offers cloud builders visibility into cloud security and operational posture, enables discovery of threats, risks, and misconfigurations in open-source pipelines, and provides security for:

Ashley Watkins, Vice President ANZ at Trend Micro: “According to the IDC market share report, global organisations spent $2.2bn last year on cloud security and nearly 18% of them partnered with us. Our automated, flexible, all-in-one platform delivers the simplicity and powerful protection they need to secure critical digital transformation initiatives.

This commitment to cloud security has kept Trend Micro on top for over a decade.”

According to Trend Micro's data, the company experienced 53% customer growth in the AWS marketplace in 2021, leading to a 134% year-on-year revenue increase in the marketplace. Revenues from cloud workload security were greater than the second and third largest players combined, according to the IDC market share report.

The independent market analysis also noted Trend Micro’s continued focus on the channel and marketplace-centric selling:

“Frankly, customers like to buy cloud security much like they buy cloud, which means buying security through cloud marketplaces,” it says. “In addition, buying through a cloud marketplace provides customers transparency of the spend and enables security units to pass the cost of security to individual business unit application owners. It is a win for security.”
