As a major educational institution and high-value target for cybercriminals, Seneca chose Trend Micro™ Office Scan™, Trend Micro™ Deep Security™, Trend Micro™ Deep Discovery™ Inspector, Deep Discovery™ Analyzer, and Trend Micro™ Control Manager™ to protect its IT environment. OfficeScan™ protects 5,000 endpoints, Deep Security™ provides policy-based management to defend approximately 500 servers and the virtual environment, and the sandbox capabilities of Deep Discovery Analyzer enable dynamic protection from zero-day threats. “Trend Micro Control Manager gives us the holistic, single-screen visibility we need to identify suspicious activities and address issues before they become problems,” said Lee.
Seneca also benefits from the Trend Micro Connected Threat Defense model, which, in addition to centralized visibility and control, shares local threat intelligence from Deep Discovery with OfficeScan and Deep Security, and automatically delivers real-time security updates for a faster time to protection. “Before Deep Discovery, we needed a more holistic view of threat activities in our environment. Now we can identify and correlate botnets and ransomware activities, and have the tools to stop them,” said Lee.
Cybercriminals can hide malware in files, and Deep Discovery allows Seneca to place customized images in its sandbox to replicate their exact environment. “The ability to quarantine and analyze a file to identify malware is another factor that set Trend Micro apart from other security solutions,” said Lee.
