Trend Micro Intros Deep Security for VMware's vCloud Hybrid Service

Trend Micro introduced its "Deep Security" solution for VMware's vCloud Hybrid Service, which enables customers to seamlessly move their on-premise or private cloud deployment to the public cloud. The solution combines security capabilities, including intrusion detection and prevention, anti-malware, integrity monitoring, vulnerability scanning, firewall and SSL to simplify security operations while enabling regulatory compliance and accelerating the ROI of virtualization and cloud initiatives.

Deep Security for vCloud Hybrid Service provides security controls and policies managed across physical, virtual and cloud environments. The company said that interoperability with VMware vCloud Director and other VMware technologies enables network administrators to automatically detect virtual machines (VMs) and apply context-based policies to them for consistent security across the data center and into the public cloud. Among other capabilities, customers will benefit from features such as virtual patching, which shield the VMs from vulnerabilities, decreasing risk and reducing patch management overhead.

"Security is a priority for our customers as they migrate to the public cloud from on-premise or hybrid environments," said Ajay Patel, vice president, vCloud Hybrid Service, VMware. "With the Trend Micro Deep Security solution on VMware vCloud Hybrid Service, customers can now seamlessly extend their security policies from on-premise to cloud and benefit from advanced threat protection for their hybrid workloads."
