CUPERTINO, Calif. and LAS VEGAS, Nov. 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro
Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), the global leader in cloud security, and
platinum sponsor of the AWS re:Invent Conference at the Venetian in Las Vegas,
Nevada from November 27^th- 29^th, is announcing that global customers of
Amazon Web Services (AWS) are able to take advantage of highly optimized
security solutions from Trend Micro for their AWS deployments, including the
newly announced AWS Storage Gateway. Customers deploying on AWS are now able
to take advantage of newly listed Trend Micro security solutions available in
the AWS Marketplace, providing a streamlined path to securing their cloud
deployment. Global customers are leveraging Trend Micro security solutions
today to shield their AWS cloud-based applications from threats, meet strict
compliance regulations, and protect the privacy of their customer data stored
in the cloud – all in a way that is easy to deploy and manage.

Trend Micro cloud security solutions are optimized for AWS, automating the
protection for new AWS instances, automating the encryption of sensitive data
stored in the cloud, and centralizing the management across hybrid cloud
environments. Amazon Web Services is amongst the first public cloud service
providers to be certified as part of the newly launched "Trend Ready for Cloud
Service Providers" program, easing deployment for joint customers.

Wipro is a leading IT services firm that has combined AWS and Trend Micro
together for rapid delivery of secure, reliable deployments in the cloud for
multiple global customers.

"Wipro is actively deploying solutions on the Amazon cloud for leading global
organizations," states Sheetal Metha, Global Head – Enterprise Security
Services at Wipro. "As more and more of our customers are taking advantage of
the cloud benefits by moving to AWS, they are demanding that we deliver
solutions that include protection. With Trend Micro cloud security solutions
we confidently deliver protection for customers' critical servers,
applications, and sensitive data."

Virtualizing and pooling IT resources in the cloud enables organizations to
realize significant cost savings and tremendous business agility – including
the ability to deploy new cloud-based applications in a matter of minutes, and
scale up and down instantly as demand changes. However, those valuable
business benefits cannot be sustained without addressing the unique security
challenges posed by cloud computing. While AWS provides secure facilities and
hardware, customers are responsible for maintaining and protecting their
operating systems, applications and data against malware attacks, zero-day
vulnerabilities and data breach.

According to IDG Research's 2012 Cloud Computing Study (January 2012), 70
percent of enterprises have security concerns about security/privacy issues in
virtualization or cloud environments. Corroborating this concern, Trend
Micro's annual global cloud security survey* found that 43 percent of the
respondents using a cloud service have experienced a data security lapse/issue
in the last 12 months.

Recognizing that security concerns continue to deter enterprises from
widespread deployments of business-critical applications in their reliable and
cost-effective cloud service programs, Amazon has worked with Trend Micro to
be certified in the Trend Ready for Cloud Service Provider program. The
program helps to expedite a company's journey to the cloud by giving
assurances that the journey is safe and protected through the use of Trend
Micro security products in conjunction with leading service providers like

"Trend Micro has focused a significant amount of time and energy on delivering
highly optimized security solutions for AWS deployments," said Dave Asprey,
Vice President, Cloud Security, Trend Micro. "Trend Micro delivers proven
threat protection and data security capabilities that help businesses address
security needs when deploying on AWS, all in an automated and consistent way."

Protect Against Threats

Trend Micro has focused on innovating and enhancing security for virtualized
and cloud deployments since 2005, providing customers with proven application
and server protection for cloud workloads. Deep Security includes even more
innovation, enabling customers to automate and simplify security operations on
and across AWS deployments. Tightly integrated modules easily expand the
platform to ensure server, application, and data security across Amazon EC2
instances. Security can be highly customized with any combination of
anti-malware, firewall, IDS/IPS, web application protection, integrity
monitoring, log inspection and reporting. Customers can access the latest
version of Deep Security through the newly listed Amazon Web Services
Marketplace listing.

Protecting Sensitive Data

Trend Micro helps to protect sensitive data through automated encryption and
key management, enabling AWS users to protect the privacy of their data and
make sure that only authorized servers access encryption keys. Trend Micro™
SecureCloud™ enables organizations to define the policies that determine where
and when encrypted data can be accessed. In addition, server validation
applies identity and integrity rules when servers request access to secure
storage volumes. SecureCloud's elegant and highly automated approach safely
delivers encryption keys to valid devices without the need to deploy an entire
file system and management infrastructure.

Architected for cloud from the ground up, Trend Micro security products
seamlessly support deployments on AWS, not only providing industry leading
security capabilities but also including key integration points like:

  oSeamless ability to perform inventory synchronization of AWS environment
    into Trend Micro security solutions, giving administrators an instant and
    complete view of security deployments and any gaps in protection.
  oAutomatic protection of newly deployed instances and automatic deletion of
    terminated instances in AWS, ensuring consistent security and management
    in the elastic cloud environment.
  oVisibility into critical troubleshooting data for all protected instances,
    removing barriers often found in security organizations and enabling
    successful and timely resolution.
  oProtection for AWS Storage Gateway, a new service connecting an
    on-premises software appliance with cloud-based storage to provide
    seamless and secure integration between an organization's on-premises IT
    environment and AWS's storage infrastructure.
  oSupport for AWS Linux kernels in addition to leading platforms like
    Microsoft Windows and various other Linux distributions (RedHat, SUSE,
    Ubuntu, CentOS), giving customers the flexibility to fully leverage a
    complete AWS environment for any instance they deploy.
  oAWS has been tested and certified under the Trend Ready for Cloud Service
    Providers program.
