MatchMove was able to put up the MatchMove Wallet service on AWS in less than six months. Users of the MatchMove Wallet now enjoy auto security provided by Deep Security, where they can be assured that all their personal data and financial transactions are secure and protected from breach. The company also found that deploying this solution a big boost in credibility when dealing with its financial partners.
Moreover, the flexibility and support for AWS allowed MatchMove’s instances to run on optimum performance. This ensured that MatchMove continued to operate without any business disruptions, while ensuring the protection of its virtualized environment.
In addition, MatchMove also benefited from the all-in-one solution that Trend Micro Deep Security offers. “It took away a lot of worry for us and gives us peace of mind. If we were to do it ourselves, we would have to set up individual softwares to ensure an efficient security solution. For example, we would have to install a comprehensive logging system, set up an anti-virus software, and then install a separate intrusion prevention system, etc. Surely, we can install all of them one by one, but the Deep Security Agent made this job easier for us by having an all-in-one solution – anti-malware, web reputation, intrusion prevention, firewall, integrity monitoring, and log inspection – installed just one time. The ease of deploying and managing a complete full-service security solution enabled us to refocus on planning and building new products,” stated Gian Ebao, Software Architect.
With the reliable security offered by Trend Micro Deep Security, the company not only benefited from full protection for its instances hosted in AWS and PCI DSS compliance, but also met its need for scalability. As Deep Security is tightly integrated with AWS’s Auto-Scaling feature, security is instant-on which meant that when instances spin up, security can be automatically initiated, and managed efficiently based on cloud deployment configurations. All these were done achieved with Deep Security’s centralized policy capability. When instances spin down, Deep Security can keep the instances completely in tune with MatchMove’s cloud deployment and fully log everything that happens in compliance with the PCI DSS requirement and audit purposes.
“Our solution was architected to leverage on AWS' auto-scaling, which means provisioning instances on demand. Deep Security allowed us to auto-scale with AWS instances together automatically. With this capability, Trend Micro allowed us to scale up or down without the need to worry about provisioning security agents manually,” explained Hidalgo.
MatchMove is looking to deploy the solution in the other markets that it plans to expand to. The flexibility that Deep Security offers allowed the company to keep its platforms consistent, enabling MatchMove to clone its setups seamlessly.
“Our systems are all virtualized, and this enables us to widen our reach. Not having any complexities in our security setup is vital to our expansion plans. Instead of taking two years to develop, launch and acquire PCI DSS-certification for a new platform, we can now replicate our existing environment in just three months. Deep Security in AWS helped us get to where we want to be fast,” said Hidalgo.
