Trend Micro Deep Security 7.5, which leverages the latest VMware vShield Endpoint API, now comes with a new agentless anti-malware module that adds to the product’s existing toolkit of protections including: intrusion detection and prevention, web application protection, application control, stateful firewall, integrity monitoring and log inspection.
“Although anti-malware protection is widely deployed across organisations of all sizes within virtual environments, traditional deployments perform poorly leading to lower levels of virtual machine consolidation, and generally impede virtualization efforts,” said Steve Quane, chief product officer of Trend Micro.
“Trend Micro Deep Security 7.5 offers the world's first anti-malware solution that is specifically designed for virtual environments and can be completely deployed with zero footprint on the virtual machine. This leads to maximum security and efficiency for our customers.”
“Trend Micro continues to work closely with us to help ensure the compatibility of Deep Security within VMware environments,” said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances , VMware. “Leveraging our latest VMware vShield Endpoint API, Deep Security now includes more secure and high-performance anti-malware protection, a crucial and significant ingredient for customers doing business in today’s virtualized IT environments.”
“Trend Micro Deep Security is an advanced security solution that protects operating systems, applications and data on physical, virtual and cloud server and virtual desktop environments,” said Richard Stiennon, chief research analyst, IT-Harvest. “This advanced protection, which includes anti-malware and server and application defense solutions, helps ensure compliance, while allowing higher server consolidation rates, and maximizing performance and operational flexibility.”
Together with its other modules, Deep Security is comprehensive server and application protection software that enables physical, virtual, and cloud computing environments to become self-defending. Whether implemented as software, virtual appliance, or in a hybrid approach, this solution minimizes overhead, streamlines management, and provides strong, transparent security for virtual machines. Deep Security also helps enterprises to achieve compliance with important standards and regulations such as PCI, FISMA and HIPAA.
Trend Micro Deep Security 7.5 is designed to prevent data breaches and business disruptions from emergency patching by providing a line of defense at the system itself, whether physical, virtual or cloud.
