Wipro and Trend partner on data centre security
Wipro and Trend will collaborate on data centre security solutions.

Trend Micro and Wipro have formed a global partnership to deliver solutions for the data centre.

The agreement will see Wipro become a global reseller for Trend, and both will collaborate on developing and delivering solutions around data centre security and data centre consolidation.

Wipro will also consolidate Trend into its service offerings around data security, managed security monitoring, managed network and host infrastructure security operations, and managed unified threat and vulnerability managed services.

The two companies will also build joint Centres of Excellence, initially in the US, UK, Australia and Japan, which will act as centres for customers to access the expertise of both companies.

Prasenjit Saha, vice president and global head of enterprise security solutions at Wipro said: "By working closely with Trend Micro, we'll be better able to address the operational security requirements of our data centre customers, and meet their business demands for efficiency and cost savings.

"Wipro's leadership in providing end-to-end security services combined with Trend Micro's advanced host and virtualization security solutions for data centre security requirements will help customers to better protect their critical data, as well as ensure compliance with PCI and other regulations," Saha added.

"Most data centres are employing virtualization technology these days, but without a virtualization security strategy, these dynamic data centres are less secure than their physical counterparts," said Wael Mohamed, senior vice president of business development, Trend Micro. "We have entered into a strategic relationship with Wipro for their global expertise in technology services. This agreement allows us to create ‘security that fits'-customizable, scalable solutions that enable enterprises to protect confidential data and take advantage of the benefits of virtualization and cloud computing without compromising the security of their dynamic data centres."
