Trend Micro picked by Go Daddy Group
Web-hosting provider has implemented Trend Micro’s Deep Security
Cloud security company Trend Micro has been selected by the Go Daddy Group, a global provider of web hosting, domain name registrations and new SSL Certificates, to help them better understand and stay ahead of online threats.
The Go Daddy Group currently has over 9.4 million customers, more than 49 million domain names under management and maintains more than five million active hosting accounts.
Go Daddy has implemented Trend Micro Deep Security, which is designed to provide advanced protection for systems in the dynamic data centre - from physical, virtual or cloud servers, to virtual desktops.
"Since Trend Micro Deep Security has a small footprint, it allows us to keep the same customer density on our servers. The Deep Security console is very easy to use, and anything you can do from the console can be carried out automatically to keep the cost of administration low," said Todd Redfoot, GoDaddy.com chief information security officer.
This implementation, according to Trend Micro, has enabled Go Daddy to block threats in the cloud before they reach the Go Daddy network and servers, enhance visibility of threat activity and associated protection, implement flexible, fast responses to changing threats, with customisable rules and minimise impact on server performance, as well as lowering the total cost of ownership.
Trend Micro's Deep Security is designed to combine intrusion detection and prevention, firewall, integrity monitoring, log inspection, and agentless anti-malware capabilities to help prevent data breaches and ensure business continuity.
This centrally managed solution also supports compliance with important standards and regulations such as PCI, FISMA, and HIPAA.
It also uses cloud-based reputation technologies and TrendLabsSM researchers to deliver real-time protection from emerging threats.
