Network Defense

Go beyond next-gen IPS to detect, analyze, and prevent advanced threats and targeted attacks

The art of detecting and protecting against known, unknown, and undisclosed vulnerabilities

Originally designed for physical, on-premises networks, today’s next-generation intrusion prevention solutions (IPS) are ineffective against many advanced threats, leaving you without adequate defenses.

Only complete visibility into all network activity and a layered connected threat defense will keep you ahead of today’s sophisticated threats. Our network defense solution goes beyond next-gen IPS with an artful blend of cross-generational techniques and advanced threat detection to maximize your protection.

Smart, optimized, connected

Our smart, optimized, and connected technology achieves faster time to protection; delivers high performance and automated protection across hybrid environments, including protection for the cloud and vulnerabilities unique to IoT/IIoT devices and networks; and provides real-time sharing of threat intelligence, centralized threat insights, and automated remediation for the most demanding network environments.

Smarter protection

Achieve faster time to protection against known, unknown, and undisclosed threats.

  • Protect against undisclosed threats an average of 72 days* ahead of vendor patch through exclusive access to vulnerability information from the Zero Day Initiative (*2017 average)
  • Submit suspicious objects automatically to a custom sandbox that mimics an exact corporate image for detonation and analysis, providing an extended layer of protection
  • Stop lateral movement of unknown threats compromising your existing perimeter defenses
  • Detect and block unknown threats associated with known malware families and unknown malware in-line in real-time with patented machine learning

Optimized performance

Optimize your security posture with high performance and automated protection that fits your hybrid environment.

  • Achieve up to 40 Gbps inspection throughput with low latency (<40 microseconds) in a market-leading 1U form factor that can be stacked up to 120 Gbps (3U)
  • Secure cloud environments with a host-based IPS solution that integrates with major cloud and container platforms and applies shared intelligence leveraged across our Network Defense solutions
  • Defend against vulnerabilities and traffic protocols unique to IoT/IIoT devices that rely on protection at the network level when endpoint security measures cannot be applied

Automated and connected

Prioritize and respond to the most critical threats with real-time sharing of threat intelligence, centralized threat insights, and automated remediation.

  • Integrate security across your organization’s networks, endpoints, and hybrid cloud environments with Trend Micro Connected Threat Defense for automated, faster time to protection
  • Prevent, detect, and respond to threats across the entire threat life cycle with centralized threat insights and visibility and control, using specialized engines, custom sandboxing, and seamless correlation
  • Tap into market-leading, actionable threat intelligence from Trend Micro Research, our Smart Protection Network, and the Zero Day Initiative
