- ‘Mix-and-match’ support for cloud, hybrid, and on-premise deployments
TREND Micro Inc has announced upgrades to its Smart Protection Suite to provide greater protection against next-generation threats across all layers of protection and deployment.
Improvements span PC and mobile endpoints, email, and web security to enable integrated visibility and threat response, Trend Micro said in a statement.
With ‘mix-and-match’ support for cloud, hybrid, and on-premise deployments, the solution updates are ideal for enterprises and mid-size businesses moving to the cloud, the company claimed.
“In this new age of the Internet of Everything, it is equally important to protect both devices as well as the behind-the-scenes infrastructure,” said Goh Chee Hoh, Trend Micro managing director for Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia.
“As businesses transition from physical to cloud, hybrid, and on-premise computing models; the security approaches they take need to evolve to counter the new threat landscape which will inevitably rise.
“We have to remember that stolen data has no expiration date. It can and will be used in perpetuity.
“We should all rethink our security strategies as stewards of data and focus on becoming threat defence experts in our organisations.
“The Trend Micro Smart Protection Suite is designed to improve security capabilities as businesses navigate new waters in the cloud. At the same time, we have also simplified deployment at the request of our customers by providing two clear-cut options,” he said.
The two options for the Trend Micro Smart Protection Suite are:
- Smart Protection for Endpoints: A high-performance endpoint security suite which protects virtual and physical desktops against today’s evolving threat landscape using the broadest range of anti-malware techniques available. Multiple layers of threat and data security protect users and corporate information across all devices and applications.
- Smart Protection Complete: An interconnected suite of security that protects users no matter where they are going or what they are doing. It delivers protection at multiple layers: Endpoint, application, and network using the broadest range of anti-malware techniques available.
As part of the Micro Smart Protection Suite, Trend Micro also released new and enhanced capabilities for Microsoft Office 365 customers.
The Trend Micro Smart Protection Suite is now available at RM116 (US$36.68) onwards from authorised Trend Micro partners.
