Matas has been a Trend Micro customer for 15 years, using solutions including Trend Micro™ TippingPoint™ and Trend Micro™ Deep Discovery™ to provide perimeter security and protect its endpoints. As the company underwent a digital transformation and migrated from on-premises data centers to Microsoft Azure and other cloud providers in recent years, it sought to evolve its Trend Micro partnership.
“I had the choice of going forward with Trend Micro or meeting with other companies to learn about their offerings. But there were so many good things about our partnership, staying with Trend Micro was an easy choice. I need a true partnership. I can’t rely on a company just pushing technology to us,” says Grane.
Grane noted that Trend Micro’s continual evolution and industry recognition as a lead cybersecurity company is also a key reason for extending Matas’ partnership.
“I like to be ahead of the game, so as a company we think about security very early. Trend Micro fits into that strategy well,” says Grane.
Grane adds that Matas’ IT personnel now view Trend Micro as an extension of the team.
“Trend Micro puts a lot of effort into connecting with us. That’s a very strategic move because that’s the only way to build a strong relationship,” says Grane.
