Latest FedRAMP® Authorisation Increases Trend Micro’s Leadership as the Most Globally Compliant Cybersecurity Platform

Enterprises and governments worldwide rely on Trend to bridge the gap between security and compliance

AUCKLAND– January 16, 2024Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cybersecurity leader, today announced its latest platform compliance achievement: Trend Cloud One™ for Government has obtained a FedRAMP® ATO (Authorization to Operate). This builds upon over a dozen similar certifications as well as support for customers to meet local compliance regulations in 175+ countries – making Trend’s platform the global leader in adapting to security regulations.

Mark Houpt, Chief Information Security Officer at DataBank: “When evaluating a security vendor, we examine every element of their offerings to understand their expertise and how they compare to others in the industry. An authorisation to operate with FedRAMP is highly sought after as an indication of the highest level of security capability and compliance. It offers value to enterprises worldwide, regardless of their US federal needs. By partnering with Trend, we are empowered to pass the benefits of this achievement to our customers and their organisations.”

As the gold standard among government certifications worldwide, the new authorisation will bring Trend’s industry-leading server, workload and endpoint protection capabilities to customers modernising cloud environments in both the private and public sectors. Trend Micro was named a Leader in The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Q2 2022 and has been named a Leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platform (EPP) report 17 times since 2002.

Trend has also been named a leader in the hybrid cloud workload security market by IDC for five consecutive years.*

Karen Laughton, Executive Vice President of Advisory Services at Coalfire: "The market is in need of a comprehensive platform that grants visibility to cyber risk and makes remediation manageable. As our long-standing partner passes this new FedRAMP milestone, we’ll be delighted to deliver the outstanding capabilities in the Trend Micro offering. Trend’s tireless commitment to the federal government space provides public sector authorities and suppliers with the scalable, flexible security they need to manage risk effectively.”

What takes multiple solutions from other vendors can be done with a single offering from Trend Micro that includes capabilities for intrusion defence to mitigate attacks and identify potential risks, identify and reduce vulnerabilities and filter out exploits of unpatched vulnerabilities, allowing time for normal patch cycles to complete while limiting unwanted exposure. As a SaaS delivery model, customers enjoy reduction in operational impact via automated installation, configuration updates, patching and backups, enabling them to focus on more pressing security tasks.

The solution brings the highest level of protection to federal and compliance-driven organisations, which are often targeted by threat actors. Capabilities include:

Achieving this FedRAMP status represents confidence from the US public sector in Trend’s ability to secure the growing cloud attack surface of government agencies as well as their partners and suppliers.

Trend is committed to data privacy and information collection transparency. Data processing will remain in the US and data will be separated from the commercial Trend Micro cloud environment to ensure it is only accessible to analysts with security clearance to meet strict FedRAMP requirements.

Craig P. Abod, President at Carahsoft: “As Trend Micro’s public sector distributor, Carahsoft is pleased to see this critical milestone in the FedRAMP authorisation process. Trend’s investments demonstrate the significance of the FedRAMP program, its dedication to facilitating secure cloud migration for agencies, and acknowledgement of the program’s importance to their customers and reseller partners who support this market.”

Established in 2011, the Federal Risk and Authorisation Management Program (FedRAMP®) is a government-wide initiative designed to empower agencies to securely use advanced cloud technologies for greater operational agility, cost efficiency and innovation. FedRAMP standardises security and risk assessment for cloud technologies and federal agencies, using highly transparent National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards and guidelines.
