Trend Micro Identified as a Representative Vendor for its Protection Capabilities for Cloud Workloads

[Hong Kong, August 21, 2017] In a time where enterprises are implementing hybrid data center architectures with workloads running both on-premise and in the cloud, customers are requesting a single product approach to address all of their workload security needs. Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, was included in Gartner’s Market Guide for Cloud Workload Protection Platforms* report which included 24 security leaders in Cloud Workload Protection solutions. Of capabilities listed by Gartner, Trend Micro was identified with sixteen out of twenty-one capabilities.

Trend Micro delivers unique server workload protection capabilities, support for a broad number of OS’s including Windows, Linux and Unix, integration with VMWare, AWS, Azure and its latest product releases which include native application control as well as visibility and protection for containers.

“We are proud to be recognized for our hybrid cloud solution,” said Steve Quane, EVP, Hybrid Infrastructure Protection at Trend Micro. “We were one of the first to protect the cloud and believe we have the highest revenue run rate in cloud environments, with over a 2.5 billion cloud workload hours.” 
A key recommendation Gartner makes in the report is for security and risk leaders to “require vendors to support the visibility and control of workloads that span physical and virtual machines, containers and multiple public cloud IaaS, all from a single policy management framework and console.”
Trend Micro’s Hybrid Cloud Security solution, powered by XGen™ security, meets this requirement by delivering a blend of cross-generational threat defense techniques that have been optimized to protect physical, virtual and cloud workloads, featuring Trend Micro Deep Security™.
