Oracle Solaris Ready is part of the Oracle Exastack Ready program which allows partners, such as Trend Micro, to be recognised by Oracle for developing, testing and tuning their applications on the latest component products of the Oracle Exadata Database Machine, Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud or Oracle SPARC SuperCluster engineered systems. Oracle Solaris 11, the first cloud OS, brings the reliability, security and scalability of the #1 enterprise OS to the cloud, allowing customers to run their most demanding enterprise applications in private, hybrid, or public clouds.

Trend Micro Deep Security is an innovative agentless security platform that also delivers comprehensive, adaptive, highly efficient agent-based protection, including anti-malware, web reputation, intrusion prevention, firewall, integrity monitoring and log inspection that helps systems to become self-defending. Deep Security works with server and client-security architectures that must protect data centers undergoing changes such as virtualisation and consolidation, new service-delivery models, and cloud computing using Oracle Solaris 11.

Trend Micro Deep Security deployed on Oracle Solaris 11 provides comprehensive protection and protections provided by a single agent across multiple security modules can be centrally managed. With Oracle Solaris Ready status, Trend Micro will receive access to corresponding Oracle branding, logos and related benefits to effectively differentiate their offerings in the market.
