Data, applications and operating systems of the Microsoft cloud can now be secured with the security solutions of the Japanese security provider Trend Micro.
The Deep Security , SecureCloud, and PortalProtect solutions can now also protect data, applications, and operating systems in Microsoft Azure. According to the company, Trend Micro has expanded its existing strategic partnership with Microsoft.
“The cloud makes it flexible and mobile – this is increasingly becoming a decisive competitive advantage for companies of all sizes. But valuable information must always remain secure, “says security expert Udo Schneider from Trend Micro.
“For end users to be productive, solutions must be reliable and easy to use. Thanks to our collaboration with Microsoft, a broad customer base can now benefit from these benefits. Broadening the partnership is just the beginning of a series of initiatives designed to ensure that cloud computing services can be protected at the same level – or even better – than internally deployed services. ”
Through the Deep Security and SecureCloud solutions, organizations can use various security controls to protect their data against theft on virtualized machines in Microsoft Azure. Also the data protection can be improved in this way. Centralized and automated policy management anti-malware, intrusion detection and prevention, and encryption provide additional security.
In addition, Trend Micro with PortalProtect also provides data from SharePoint workloads in Microsoft Azure. And with Microsoft Agent Extension, Deep Security can be selected as a security extension while configuring a virtual machine in Microsoft Azure.
This close partnership will help improve the deployment time of Deep Security, SecureCloud, and PortalProtect virtual machines and SharePoint workloads in Microsoft Azure through Powershell Extensions.
