Cloudnexa has been an AWS partner since 2008, an AWS Premiere Consulting Partner since 2013, and a certified AWS Managed Services Provider since 2015. Since working with Trend Micro in 2014 to secure its AWS workloads, Cloudnexa’s partnership with Trend Micro as its preferred solution provider strengthened. “It’s about time-to-market, ease-of-use, and that Trend Micro offers a full, ready-to-go SaaS solution—those are all huge value-adds for us. And the pricing via the AWS Marketplace is always right. I haven’t seen another security vendor that can provide the same level of service at anywhere near the cost,” says DiBerardino.
Trend Micro’s constant evolution to address new security threats is another selling point. “Every day there are new AWS services available. Cloudnexa, Trend Micro, and AWS work together so whenever a new AWS service is released, Trend Micro already has it covered. That’s extremely important because when new services are offered, our clients want to use them,” says DiBerardino.
“Trend Micro is also willing to collaborate with us to meet our customers’ needs, including developing a usage-based licensing model. Trend Micro was open to the concept. A lot of other partners were unwilling to work with us on it. The fact that Trend Micro took our idea on showed that they are as forward-thinking and visionary as we are,” says DiBerardino.
