Trend Micro and VMware collaborate on virtualized data center security
Sep 04, 2013 (MarketLine via COMTEX) --
Trend Micro Incorporated, a Japan-based company engaged in the development and sale of anti-virus software products, has collaborated with VMware, a provider of cloud and virtualization software and services, to enable the next evolution of virtualization - the software defined data center.
Trend Micro is working with VMware to integrate Trend Micro's Deep Security with VMware NSX, the platform for network virtualization. This can result in a best-of-breed security framework for joint customers that increase protection and automate security deployments in virtualized data centers.
"As VMware launches its next-generation VMware NSX network virtualization platform, Trend Micro is excited to work alongside to create a comprehensive security backbone that protects the data center of the future," said Kevin Simzer, senior vice president, marketing and business development, Trend Micro. "This relationship will help simplify and automate how security is deployed, delivering reliable protection that easily scales to the needs of each customer."
According to Trend Micro, the Software Defined Data Center maximizes all resources necessary to host an application including storage, networking and security. As part of the Trend Micro Cloud and Data Center Security Solution, Deep Security integrates anti-malware, Web reputation and firewall in addition to intrusion prevention, integrity monitoring and log inspection to protect mission-critical applications and data. The platform utilizes agentless and agent-based protection to automatically secure virtual servers and desktops, as well as private and public clouds.
"When we developed VMware NSX, we recognized customers have made huge investments in security infrastructure. We developed VMware NSX as an extensible platform that leverages a distributed service framework for easy insertion of partner services such as those offered by Trend Micro," said Hatem Naguib, vice president, Cloud Networking and Security, VMware. "Through this integration, our joint customers can realize the promise of VMware NSX itself better, faster and more secure IT services."
