​Responsibility shared as Trend Micro integrates with Microsoft Azure Security Centre

“The concept of shared responsibility in the Cloud requires all customers to make security a priority.”

Trend Micro has announced the integration of Trend Micro Deep Security into the Microsoft Azure Security Centre, offering protection across Cloud and virtual environments.

Terms of the deal will see businesses now have access to a single view of all Azure subscriptions, live workload monitoring capabilities, and suggested remediation steps to address security issues.

Trend Micro Deep Security has been recommended by Microsoft to help address vulnerabilities, enabling customers to deploy directly from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

“As customers embrace Azure, they need easy-to-manage security solutions to protect workloads from malware and network attacks, as well as achieve compliance,” says Bill McGee, Senior VP of cloud and data centre security, Trend Micro.

“With the Azure Security Centre, it has never been easier to benefit from Deep Security, the industry’s No. 1 server security solution that scales in virtual and cloud environments without compromising performance and efficiency.

“It also automates provisioning of workload-aware security for rapid protection of virtual machines from software vulnerabilities, including Shellshock and Heartbleed.”

McGee says Trend Micro Deep Security offers real-time malware detection and removal, protection from known and unknown vulnerabilities, such as zero-day attacks.

In addition, McGee claims the solution delivers detection and alerts on suspicious or malicious activity, including integrity monitoring for regulatory compliance with regulations spanning PCI DSS 3.1, HIPAA, etc.

“The concept of shared responsibility in the cloud requires all customers to make security a priority, but the dynamic nature of the environment means traditional data centre approaches simply don’t fit,” adds Nicole Herskowitz, Senior Director of Product Marketing, Microsoft Azure.

“With the dynamic capabilities of Trend Micro Deep Security integrated in the Azure Security Centre, customers will now be able to easily identify security and configuration issues, and quickly address them.”

Microsoft Azure Security Centre is now available in beta to all Azure customers globally with commercial availability expected in 2016.
