For the second consecutive year, Trend Micro takes the global market lead in virtualisation security, according to independent third-party report. 


Marlow, UK – June 18, 2012 - Trend Micro Incorporated, a global cloud security leader, today announced that the company holds the largest share, 10 to 12 percent, in the global virtualisation security management solutions market, according to The Global Virtualisation Security Management Solutions Market 2011-2015, published by independent market research company TechNavio. TechNavio also recently placed Trend Micro #1 in the cloud security market share.

The report cited Trend Micro’s wide range of virtualisation security solution offerings for virtual environments, and its geographic diversity compared to its competitors. The report also credits the strategic acquisition of Third Brigade, along with Trend Micro’s strong partnership network with Microsoft, HP, IBM, VMware, and more for helping Trend Micro expand its virtualisation security product offering and lead the market.

Although the Americas is the major contributor to the market, with a share of 51–53 percent, the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region are also coming up as strong contributors in the market.

“Virtualisation has emerged as the key technological driver in today’s data centre. It lies at the foundation of cloud services, it enables agility and flexibility of server resources and contributes positively to an organisation’s bottom line, delivering savings in power, equipment and administration. The virtual data centre is already firmly established and widespread desktop virtualisation looms large on the horizon. However securing these new environments presents challenges and opportunities that do not have an equivalent in the physical data centre. Trend Micro’s forward looking strategy and targeted technological investment allowed us to identify the security requirements early on and deliver world class solutions even as the virtualisation wave was in its first stages. Our leading position in the virtualisation security is testament to the quality and maturity of our technology,” Rik Ferguson, Director of Security Research and Communication EMEA at Trend Micro.
