Trend adds risk and compliance solutions through Qualys partnership
Strategic partnership for Trend to sell QualysGuard IT Security and Compliance Suite
Trend Micro and risk and compliance solutions specialist Qualys has signed a strategic alliance to add Qualys solutions to Trend products.
Under the agreement, Trend will repackage and sell QualysGuard IT Security and Compliance Suite with its Trend Micro Enterprise Security compliance offerings. The move is intended to deliver enhanced demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions to customers, including functions such as vulnerability and threat management; compensating controls and assessment; and reporting and submission to meet GRC (Governance, Risk and Compliance) requirements.
Eva Chen CEO of Trend Micro commented: "A rapidly evolving threat landscape is driving businesses to boost compliance and vulnerability assessment, a need Trend Micro is now positioned to meet across dynamic data centres.
"Our alignment with Qualys, the recognized market leader in vulnerability and compliance management, allows us to extend our commitment towards ‘security that fits,' creating tailored security solutions that fit seamlessly into a corporation's overall IT network, whether they are in physical, cloud or virtualized environments," she added.
"With the rise of Cloud Computing and rapid technological changes, it is imperative for vendors to work together to enable customers to secure their data and meet compliance requirements beyond the enterprise walls," said Philippe Courtot, chairman and CEO for Qualys. "We are thrilled to work with Trend Micro to help customers worldwide identify and remediate threats, protect against malware that could have previously evaded detection and give them a precise view of their global security and compliance posture."
