Savvis adds Trend Micro Deep Security to VPDC cloud services

Infotech Lead Asia: Savvis, a CenturyLink company, has added Trend Micro Deep Security to its global Savvis Symphony Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC) cloud services.


The new security offering enables Savvis to become one of the first few cloud providers to introduce a virtual, fully automated intrusion prevention system purpose-built for hybrid and public cloud deployments.


Virtual self-tuning intrusion prevention and inline patching capabilities are some of the main benefits to Symphony VPDC customers.


“Deep Security’s innovative virtualization and cloud security design and feature set enable us to deliver a fully automated, virtualized intrusion prevention system that our customers can implement quickly and easily,” said Chris Richter, vice president of security products and services at Savvis.


Savvis expects to further integrate Deep Security and related reporting capabilities with its SavvisStation Portal. Savvis also plans to increase its security operations center support to include 24/7 monitoring and support for vIPS.


“The addition of Trend Micro Deep Security to these services will enable Savvis customers to upgrade to our industry-leading virtualization and cloud security solutions that are purpose-built to protect hybrid data center and cloud environments,” said Kevin Simzer, vice president of corporate development at Trend Micro.


Symphony VPDC is available in North America, Asia and EMEA.


Symphony VPDC also can be integrated seamlessly to support hybrid cloud solutions that leverage Savvis’ managed hosting, colocation and network services.
