The Go Daddy Group, a provider of Web hosting, domain name registrations and net new SSL Certificates has selected Trend Micro to help them better understand and stay ahead of online threats, the companies announced today.
Go Daddy Group has selected Trend Micro Deep Security which provides advanced protection for systems in the dynamic data centre-from physical, virtual or cloud servers, to virtual desktops, the company said.
According to the company, the deployment has enabled Go Daddy to improve protection against threats blocked in the cloud before they reach the Go Daddy network and servers, in addition to enhancing visibility of threat activity and associated protection.
The solution helps implement flexible, fast responses to changing threats, with customisable rules, minimises impact on server performance for maximised customer satisfaction while reducing the total cost of ownership, the company added.
“Since Trend Micro Deep Security has a small footprint, it allows us to keep the same customer density on our servers. The Deep Security console is very easy to use, and anything you can do from the console can be carried out automatically to keep the cost of administration low,” said Todd Redfoot, CISO, GoDaddy.com.
Go Daddy Group has more than 9.4 million customers, more than 49 million domain names under management and maintains more than 5 million active hosting accounts, the company pointed out.
