Recognised for Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute

But throughout this difficult period, we’ve been there for our customers,” said Ashley Watkins, Vice President, Commercial, ANZ. “I’m delighted to see us recognised again for doing what we do best: Protecting global organisations through innovative, cloud-first and platform-based security. We will continue to focus on offering simple, robust and industry-leading protection through our cybersecurity platform.”

At the heart of the company's cybersecurity platform is Trend Micro Vision One, which delivers visibility and XDR using telemetry from Apex One in addition to email, servers, cloud workloads and networks for faster detections and investigations.
