SYDNEY, Australia - 20 February 2013 - Trend Micro Incorporated, the global leader in cloud security, today launched the latest version of its comprehensive server security platform designed to provide server, application and data security across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
Deep Security 9 is specifically designed to maximise the return on investment in virtualisation and cloud technologies for large and small enterprises, as well as managed service providers with an infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) practice.
While previous versions of Deep Security have already delivered on the innovation and market leadership in virtualization security with an agentless security platform designed specifically for VMware® environments, Deep Security 9 offers additional performance and ease-of-use enhancements to the agentless architecture.
At the same time, Deep Security 9 extends the power of the Deep Security server security platform to the public and hybrid cloud, enabling organisations to dynamically instantiate workloads in this environment while still maintaining the highest levels of security and compliance.
"More and more data centres are becoming virtualised or moving to a public or hybrid cloud," said Steve Quane, chief product officer, Trend Micro.
"Deep Security offers VMware customers intrusion prevention, integrity monitoring, and virtual patching on an agentless basis in addition to agentless AV. It allows customers to securely extend their data centre and private cloud workloads to public and hybrid clouds, so they can recognize even greater agility and cost savings."
Deep Security leverages both agentless and agent-based protection mechanisms to automatically and efficiently secure virtual servers and desktops, and private and public clouds and accelerate ROI.
Comprised of anti-malware, web reputation, firewall, intrusion prevention, integrity monitoring and log inspection technologies in one integrated solution; 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.
“This is the first time that a security technology integrates so tightly into cloud providers. Users can now enjoy risk and compliance consistence regardless of whether workloads are housed in-house or in the cloud. There is no need to compromise on security to get the cost savings and agility that cloud has to offer,” said Adam Biviano, Senior Manager, Strategic Products, Trend Micro ANZ.
"We're very happy to see Trend Micro continuing to work closely with VMware to bring customers the benefits of advanced security for virtual and cloud environments," said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, VMware. "Trend Micro developed Deep Security 9 with VMware in mind by including integrations with VMware vCenter™, vSphere Endpoint™ and vCloud Director®, and providing improved manageability of security in VMware environments."
What's NEW in Trend Micro Deep Security 9:
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.
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.
Enhancements to Deep Security Agentless Platform to include improved performance through VMware ESX® level caching and deduplication, and recommendation scans that take the guesswork out of tuning security policies.
Hypervisor integrity monitoring in Deep Security 9 extends security and compliance of virtualized systems to the hypervisor. By utilising Intel TPM/TXT technology, Deep Security 9 is able to monitor for any unauthorized changes to the hypervisor thereby helping organizations meet evolving compliance requirements like PCI DSS Virtualization Guidelines.
Deep Security 9 has an agile multi-tenant architecture for software-defined data centers and providers that enables logical separation of tenant policies and data, allows delegation and self-service for tenants, and supports elastic cloud-scaling with automated deployment and provisioning of Deep Security components. RESTful management APIs also facilitates extensibility and integration into modern cloud infrastructure.
Pricing & Availability for ANZ
Trend Micro Deep Security 9 is now available. Pricing is based on a per server model and also depends on the number of modules licensed
