Trend Micro Incorporated announces that its Trend Micro Deep Security has been successfully integrated into Microsoft Azure Security Center. The cutting-edge security solution has been opted by Microsoft to help address vulnerabilities, enabling customers to deploy directly from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
Through this strategic integration, Customers will now have access to a single view of all Azure subscriptions, live workload monitoring capabilities, and suggested remediation steps to address security issues.
“As customers embrace Azure, they need easy-to-manage security solutions to protect workloads from malware and network attacks, as well as achieve compliance,” said Bill McGee, senior vice president, cloud & data center security, Trend Micro. “With the Azure Security Center, it has never been easier to benefit from Deep Security, the industry’s No. 1 server security solution that scales in virtual and cloud environments without compromising performance and efficiency. It also automates provisioning of workload-aware security for rapid protection of virtual machines from software vulnerabilities, including Shellshock and Heartbleed.”
Trend Micro Deep Security benefits users from real-time malware detection and removal, as well as protection from known and unknown vulnerabilities, such as zero-day attacks. In addition, the solution delivers detection and alerts on suspicious or malicious activity, including integrity monitoring for regulatory compliance with regulations spanning PCI DSS 3.1, HIPAA, etc.
“The concept of shared responsibility in the cloud requires all customers to make security a priority, but the dynamic nature of the environment means traditional data center approaches simply don’t fit,” says Nicole Herskowitz, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure. “With the dynamic capabilities of Trend Micro Deep Security integrated in the Azure Security Center, customers will now be able to easily identify security and configuration issues, and quickly address them.”
Microsoft Azure Security Center will be available in beta to all Azure customers globally December 2, 2015. Commercial availability is expected in 2016.
