Cupertino, California (PRESS RELEASE – June 6, 2011) – Trend Micro (TSE: 4704) recently unveiled four cloud security services now available through Ingram Micro Cloud and ultimately available on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, a transactional, online marketplace coming soon where solution providers and managed service providers (MSPs) can shop, procure, provision and obtain invoices for their cloud services directly from Ingram Micro.
Previewed during the Ingram Micro Cloud Services Summit 2011, the Trend Micro security solutions offered through Ingram Micro Cloud include:
- Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services – A cloud-based security solution that provides protection anytime and anywhere. It secures PCs, laptops, servers, and other Windows-based devices such as point of sale machines and tablets. Worry-Free Business Security Services is hosted and maintained by Trend Micro security experts, with ’round the clock’ updates from the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network infrastructure, so your computers are secure. With endpoint based URL filtering, web usage policies can be implemented, enforced and updated on machines regardless of their location, and integration with the licensing management platform enables managed service providers to administer their own license plans and customer entitlement on the fly.
- Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Advanced and Standard – Provides small businesses with comprehensive protection against malicious websites, spam, viruses, cybercriminals, and data loss. Worry-Free includes URL filtering for protection against web threats, and is ranked #1 in independent tests(1) at blocking threats before they reach PCs, Mac computers, file and mail servers — providing comprehensive protection with minimal impact on end-user productivity.
- Trend Micro SecureCloud platform – Enhances and extends the customer’s security and data protection as it evolves from virtualization to private and public clouds. Through the use of encryption and simple policy-based key management, SecureCloud protects data in the cloud and allows the flexibility to move between cloud vendors without being tied to any one provider’s encryption system.
- Trend Micro Deep Security – Provides security for virtual and cloud environments by closing security gaps unique to those environments. Protection spans physical, virtual, private and public cloud environments with control from a single console. Deep Security is tightly integrated with VMware vShield Endpoint, thereby allowing Trend Micro to provide prevention for VMs in an agentless structure without requiring a third-party agent to be installed on each VM, thereby consuming fewer VMware vSphere system resources and enabling higher VM densities.
“Securing the cloud is a top concern for both channel partners and their end-user customers and presents a sizable opportunity for us as the IT industry’s leading master services aggregator to bring to market best of breed security solutions and services from top guns including Trend Micro,” says Renee Bergeron, vice president of managed services and cloud computing, Ingram Micro North America. “Trend Micro’s Worry-Free Business Security Services are a great fit for the needs of our channel partners and their SMB-focused customers. We’re pleased to bring Trend Micro into the Ingram Micro Cloud and expand our working relationship.”
On June 2, at the Ingram Micro Cloud Services Summit, John Maddison, executive general manager, Data Center Business Unit, Trend Micro presented “Securing Your Journey to the Cloud.” John discussed how the need for security that replicates or surpasses that provided within the current data center is essential for continued cloud migration. The security solution set securing the journey to the cloud is a very strategic part of cloud thinking for all customers.
