New XGen security features enhance server protection and extend to container architectures
Trend Micro Incorporated announced the availability of Trend Micro Deep Security 10, powered by XGen Security. XGen Security is a blend of cross-generational threat defense techniques fueled by market leading threat intelligence, and powers all Trend Micro security solutions. With this release, Deep Security continues its industry leadership protecting physical, virtual and cloud servers across leading environments such as VMware, Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure, adding multiple new security techniques that have been optimized for maximum performance, operational efficiency and response to newly discovered threats.
The increasing adoption of virtualization and cloud is driving organizations to change and simplify their approach to security, stepping back from traditional approaches and embracing modern solutions. We believe leading analyst firm Gartner’s recommendation for securing cloud workloads reinforces this: “Don’t assume end-user endpoint protection platform solutions are best-suited to protect cloud server workloads, which have vastly different protection requirements.” In the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms, Trend Micro is positioned the highest and furthest in the Leaders quadrant for its ability to execute and completeness of vision.2 Deep Security is one of the Trend Micro products evaluated in the Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms.
“The business demands for faster application delivery using the cloud without increasing IT spend means that security needs to be looked at differently,” says Jason Cradit, senior director of technology for TRC Solutions. “Deep Security fits the DevSecOps model, giving us full visibility of all cloud workloads and automated provisioning of a broad range of security controls, which enables us to easily support an ever-expanding pipeline of new applications with a small, nimble team.”
Deep Security includes a smart blend of cross generational threat defense techniques for protecting servers from known bad threats, including anti-malware and intrusion prevention (IPS) to detect and stop sophisticated attacks. As a part of the XGen™ Security strategy, Deep Security 10 adds multiple new security techniques, including the prevention of unauthorized software changes with application control. Reimagined for the hybrid cloud, the new application control feature can protect servers from sophisticated attacks such as ransomware, even when applications are constantly changing and elastic workloads are distributed across virtual and cloud environments.
Focused on further enhancing the ability to detect unknown threats, Deep Security 10 supports sandbox integration with Trend Micro Deep Discovery, and will also soon add machine learning to its ever-growing list of advanced threat defense techniques.
“In addition to embracing and helping our customers with important new infrastructure changes like Docker containers, Deep Security 10 also addresses the need to purchase security differently,” said Tony Lee, Head of Consulting at Trend Micro Hong Kong. “Deep Security is available as software, as-a-service, and through the AWS and Azure marketplaces, giving organizations unparalleled purchasing flexibility, including per hour pricing matched to the cloud.”
