As part of the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance, Trend Micro will deliver its Deep Security product through the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
“Aligning with pioneers and innovators, such as Microsoft, reinforces our commitment to help end users protect data across their entire IT environment, from the desktop to the network and the cloud,” says Partha Panda, Trend Micro’s vice president for global channel and strategic alliances.
Trend Micro recently added advanced threat protection controls to Office 365 through their Cloud App Security Solution for Microsoft Office 365. This extends Office 365’s built-in security with document exploit detection and sandbox malware analysis to detect zero-day malware and malicious code hidden in PDF or Office documents. Additionally, it improves visibility into compliance with data loss prevention. Cloud App Security also keeps threats from migrating over OneDrive or SharePoint Online from mobile workers or trusted partners. It works in conjunction with Office 365 using APIs without the need to install software or re-route email traffic.
“Security is an utmost priority for organisations relying on the cloud,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing, Microsoft Azure. “We look forward to offering our customers Trend Micro solutions that provide end-to-end protection from one of the foremost cloud security providers in the industry.”
Trend Micro is also a member of the Microsoft Active Protections Program, which delivers security vulnerability information from the Microsoft Security Response Centre to update products and provide protections for zero-day vulnerabilities discussed in Microsoft Security Advisories.
