Recently, I have shared some ideas on what to look for in a security solution for your cloud and data center. I highlighted what Trend Micro has to offer to ensure your security requirements are covered. I discussed what security smarts to look for, and how it is possible to have complete security coverage that’s simple to manage and fits with your environment. I think these are all great reasons to give us a look when assessing what your security needs in your data center or cloud environment. (Hint - start by stopping by booth 1505 at VMworld 2013!)
But hey, I know I am just a little biased. It’s time to share some of the reasons our customers have selected Trend Micro to secure their cloud or data center:
Go-Daddy: Reputation Protection
Go Daddy has more than 9 million customers, more than 48 million domain names under management, and hosts more than 5 million websites. The company success is based on simple, yet effective core fundamentals—quality products backed by world-class support at affordable prices.
With millions of customers relying on Go-Daddy, there is a fanatical commitment to customer care and keeping everyone’s data secure. Go Daddy chose Deep Security because it was easy to deploy and manage within their large-scale network while helping Go Daddy stay ahead of attacks.
“Go Daddy is always trying to detect issues before they impact the customer. Stopping the problem before it starts provides customers the best possible level of service. Deep Security helps Go Daddy accomplish that goal. ” —Tod Redfoot, Chief Information Security Officer, Go Daddy
Ahold owns and operates hundreds of supermarkets in the United States and Europe, and has earned a quality reputation for its brands that include Giant, Stop & Shop, Albert, Etos, and more. With an infrastructure that extends across two continents, Ahold faces major operational challenges when it comes to maintaining security and achieving compliance with various government regulations including Payment Card Industry (PCI) requirements.
They chose Trend Micro’s Deep Security product because it met all their security requirements, including PCI compliance, in one product that was easy to deploy and manage.
“The ease of use and the scalability will allow us to replace a more expensive solution and also integrate multiple security functions – firewall and intrusion defense – in a single solution. The all-in-one nature of Deep Security and the supportability were key decision factors that led to selecting Trend Micro.” — Paul Brooks, Director, Information Security, Ahold
The City of Oulu, Finland was a technology leader with a familiar challenge: scale up IT services to an expanding user base – in this case the merger of the city with four surrounding municipalities – within a year.
They chose Trend Micro’s Deep Security product because of its fit with the virtualized desktop environment (VDI) strategy that the team had chosen. The agentless security was more resource efficient (I/O, CPU, memory) in a virtualized environment, compared to “traditional” security, and enabled increased consolidation ratios.
“Deep Security is ‘VMware Ready’ and gives us a solution that leverages VMware vShield APIs… VDI is protected—with good performance and minimal administration effort—thanks to Deep Security.” —Marko Niskala, Infrastructure Manager, City of Oulu, Finland
These are just three examples from the thousands of customers that have chosen Trend Micro to protect their cloud and data center.
We are excited to join you this week at VMworld 2013 to hear about your successes with using virtualization and cloud. We would love to provide you with more information on how Trend Micro can protect your cloud and data center! Please stop on by Booth 1505!
