Trend Micro is also securing State Bank of India’s (SBI) 2.75 lakh endpoints across 26,000 branches in India. Trend Micro implemented a Connected Threat Defense and Response Strategy to detect and block threats across all channels.
“It was important to find a customizable security solution for our business. Trend Micro helped us combat the challenges of securing and protecting our data and network from potential security risks and cyber threats,” said Prashant Thakkar, chief technology officer and head of Strategy, LIC Mutual Fund Asset Management.
LIC Mutual Fund deployed Trend Micro solutions providing visibility into potential security threats and increased protection against zero-day vulnerabilities. It also improved operational efficiency by reducing unscheduled patching events, customer code fixes, and enhanced productivity due to reduced unscheduled downtime.
Trend Micro solutions, deployed as a single, multifunction agent across all environments in the data centres, addressed resource contention issues and helped to simplify security operations.
