Prestigious award recognizes Trend Micro for its collaboration with AWS in both technology and go-to-market; and its ability to leverage AWS services to expand and grow with AWS
SINGAPORE, July 27, 2021 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cybersecurity leader, has been awarded the 2021 Amazon Web Services (AWS) Global Partner of the Year (ASEAN) award in the Independent Software Vendor (ISV) category. Trend Micro is recognized for its ability to help customers enhance their security posture in the cloud; increase demand of AWS cloud services; and create new use cases in cloud security.
“At AWS ASEAN, we consider our partners to be an extension of our team. Never has this shared obsession with serving our customers been more visible than over the last twelve months, where we have seen so many ASEAN partners go above and beyond on behalf of our customers,” said Conor McNamara, Managing Director, AWS ASEAN. “The AWS ASEAN Partner Awards is an opportunity for us to recognize the exceptional contributions of AWS Partners from across ASEAN. We are humbled by the collective commitment of our partner community and congratulate all award winners on this well-deserved recognition.”
Trend Micro’s Cloud One platform, comprising seven cloud security services, is fully integrated with AWS. Cloud One, designed to be the one-stop shop for enterprises’ cloud security needs, protects many AWS cloud services, including Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), AWS Lambda, a serverless compute service, Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC), a service that lets organizations launch AWS resources in a logically isolated virtual network that they define, and more. With more than 600 automated checks, Cloud One also enables real-time monitoring of the AWS environment, ensuring watertight compliance with industry regulations.
“The success of Trend Micro’s partnership with AWS is built upon our mutual commitment to customer-centricity and user-friendliness”, said Paul Hidalgo, Head of Cloud Business (ASEAN), Trend Micro. “When we first started working with AWS in 2012, it was because our customers encouraged us to do so. Nine years on, this partnership continues to thrive and grow, empowering businesses from all over the world with one of the broadest and most advanced cloud security offerings in the market.”
Trend Micro’s partnership with AWS extends beyond technology alignment. The two companies also work hand-in-hand to advance the knowledge and skillsets of cybersecurity and IT professionals through regular hands-on trainings.
“Today, organizations are obsessed with digital transformation. But at Trend Micro, we believe that a cultural transformation is also a must for businesses to succeed in the cloud. And that begins with an understanding of how security in the cloud is different from traditional security. The shift-left movement is sweeping enterprises in all sectors today. The earlier organizations are able to connect their DevOps team and SecOps team, the earlier they can start to reap the full benefits of cloud. We are grateful to have a partner like AWS who is completely aligned with this vision. Together, we can make a real impact and advance cybersecurity for a better future.” Hidalgo added.
