Proven security for your VMware
virtual data center    

Virtualization security solutions specifically architected for VMware    

Since 2008, Trend Micro has been strategically partnered with VMware to help transform and secure the modern data center. Today, we offer multiple powerful and flexible security capabilities, all optimized to protect VMware deployments across data centers, private and public clouds, and hybrid deployments. 

We work with VMware to secure the software-defined data center, hybrid cloud environments, and to manage security as a part of operations. 

Software-defined data center    

  • Securing vSphere deployments: Hypervisor-level integration with vSphere, taking virtualization security to a new level with easier deployment and increased performance. The efficiency and automation that this approach delivers enables joint customers to easily secure virtualized systems with multiple security controls.
  • Securing virtualized networks through NSX: Including both guest and network introspection, our support for NSX enables joint customers to continue to realize the efficiency of hypervisor-based security while enhancing deployment and automation with NSX, including supporting the micro-segmentation use case.
  • Securing Horizon VDI deployments: Integration with Horizon VDI helps to reduce exposure, protect from inter-VM attacks, and thwart the propagation of malware like ransomware. Our proven integration approach avoids resource contention on VMs and eliminates blind spots that result as virtual desktops are deployed, reverted, paused, and restarted.

Hybrid cloud environments 

We deliver consistent security across the hybrid cloud, supporting organizations as they adopt public clouds like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft® Azure™ and IBM SoftLayer. Our deep integration with VMware technologies combined with optimized cloud security enables organizations to confidently extend their VMware data centers to the public cloud.

Manage security as part of operations    

  • Automating VM discovery and security deployment on vSphere: Through deep integration with vCenter, our approach enables IT teams to query and monitor the security state of managed virtual machines. With full visibility, organizations can easily create and manage security policies, get alerts, and take preventive actions to protect the data center.
  • Integrating security and operations together with vRealize Operations: Our unique integration with VMware vRealize Operations allows the operations team to see the security status and in the context of the overall health of the virtual data center. This allows the correlation of system and security activities to rapidly address problems in the virtual data center.

Partnering to deliver more value

Beyond deep technical integration, Trend Micro and VMware have also partnered to enable organizations to easily try out the joint solutions. Bundled solutions that include VMware and Trend Micro products with strategic partners (VCE, Cisco, IBM, Dell, HPE and more) are available to maximize value. These joint packages simplify the purchase and deployment of a combined offering, including support services to ensure a successful experience.
