With the Trend Micro™ Deep Security™ console, Smartronix can quickly view any gaps in endpoint security in the cloud. Trend Micro’s implementation capabilities also impressed Smartronix. The Trend Micro solution can point directly into a cloud services provider (CSP) account, identify resources, and determine whether configurations are under management.
Trend Micro’s application program interface (API)-level integration with CSPs, specifically Amazon Web Services (AWS), is a key differentiator. This integration enables Smartronix to track their customers’ use of Smartronix modules. The Deep Security module runtime can be broken down to hourly usage, enabling Smartronix to align its security pricing more closely with the way its customers consume cloud infrastructure.
“Looking at a lot of the different market leaders, we consider Trend Micro to be ahead of the curve with their implementation, integration for hybrid cloud environments, and CSP capabilities,” said Anthony Vultaggio, CTO, Smartronix.
