Trend Micro expands relationship with Microsoft
Relationship to provide security to companies transitioning workloads to the cloud
Cloud security provider, Trend Micro has today announced an “expanded strategic relationship” with Microsoft Corp, to provide organisations with additional security for the Microsoft Cloud.
The relationship means that Trend Micro will deliver threat and data protection for Microsoft Azure customers while Microsoft will continue to provide a secure infrastructure.
“The ability to leverage the scale and agility of the cloud is critical for organisations of all sizes, but valuable information must remain secured,” said Bill McGee, senior vice president and general manager, cloud and data centre security, Trend Micro. “To keep productivity and user satisfaction high, security needs to be reliable and convenient. To that end, Trend Micro is leading the way in providing comprehensive security solutions as cloud and virtualisation adoption surges.
"Working with Microsoft allows us to reach a broad customer base that can benefit from the advancements we have made in these areas. This is the beginning of a variety of initiatives where we will align with Microsoft to ensure use of cloud computing services can continue to accelerate and be protected to the same level, or better, than when the services were deployed internally.”
Trend Micro recently showcased new security features for its Deep Security, SecureCloud and PortalProtect products including Microsoft Azure, Microsoft SharePoint, and Microsoft Agent Extension in support of Microsoft technology, at this year’s TechEd North America.
“As we broaden the scope of our cloud and virtual solutions, we know that security will continue to play a primary role to meet our customers’ needs,” said Corey Sanders, principal group program manager, Microsoft Azure. “That’s why working with Trend Micro is so important to our overall approach. The company has consistently demonstrated expertise and commitment to delivering innovative security solutions to help customers securely achieve the full potential of the cloud. We look forward to continuing our work with Trend Micro in the future.”
