Infotech Lead Asia: Trend Micro announced new features to Deep Security 9.
Enterprises will benefit as the modified server security platform will offer server, application and data security across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
It allows enterprises to securely extend their data center and private cloud workloads to public and hybrid clouds, so they can recognize even greater agility and cost savings.
“We are Deep Security customers and we look forward to version 9’s ‘single pane of glass’ view for virtualization and cloud, with its simplified multi-tenancy support, lowered operating costs and improved managed services business model,” said Bill Gillis, CIO, Beth Israel Deaconess Physician Organization.
Trend Micro says Deep Security 9 is designed to maximize the return on investment in virtualization and cloud technologies for large and small enterprises, as well as managed service providers with an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) practice.
Security 9 extends the power of the Deep Security server security platform to the public and hybrid cloud, enabling organizations to instantiate workloads in this environment while still maintaining the highest levels of security and compliance.
Amit Nath, country manager, India & SAARC, Trend Micro, said: “Deep Security offers VMware customers intrusion prevention, integrity monitoring, and virtual patching on an agentless basis in addition to agentless AV.”
Interestingly, Deep Security leverages agentless and agent-based protection mechanisms to secure virtual servers and desktops, and private and public clouds and accelerate ROI.
The solution protects mission critical enterprise applications and data from data breaches and business disruptions without expensive emergency patching. Deep Security 9 also enables cost-effective compliance to many regulations such as PCI DSS 2.0, HIPAA, NIST and SAS 70.
Integration into vCloud Director and Amazon Web Services, as well as a unified management console, enables organizations to extend their data center security to workloads in VMware vCloud and Amazon-based public cloud workloads enforcing the same corporate policies across both environments and managing the security of both environments through a single pane of glass.
It offers support for latest VMware releases – vSphere 5.1 and vCloud Networking and Security 5.1
Deep Security 9 will support VMware vSphere 5.1 and vCloud Networking and Security (vCNS). This release will mark the product’s 4th generation of integration with VMware products.
By utilizing Intel TPM/TXT technology, Deep Security 9 is able to monitor for any unauthorized changes to the hypervisor thereby helping enterprises meet compliance requirements like PCI DSS Virtualization Guidelines.
“Trend Micro’s latest Deep Security 9 release delivers a suite of innovative performance and ease-of-use enhancements that will enable us to offer clients a more robust and dynamic solution to secure their data across all key points – from the server to the cloud,” said Adam Bari, managing director, IPM Technology Consultants.
