CUPERTINO, Calif. and SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --As global
companies continue to transition to the public cloud, cyber security remains
paramount. To address this challenge, Trend Micro's (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704)
"Trend Ready for Cloud Service Providers" program was established in 2012 as a
testing ground to verify compatibility of the Trend Micro's security solutions
with well-known global cloud providers. A first-of-its kind initiative for
cloud infrastructure providers, it helps alleviate concerns regarding the
ability to add security to cloud deployments. To date, more than 20 leading
cloud service providers, including Amazon Web Services, HP Cloud Services and
Dell have been certified.

"The 'Trend Ready' initiative is off to a great start with some of the best
known brands in cloud infrastructure services already participating," said
Kevin Simzer, senior vice president, marketing and business development, Trend
Micro. "We are proud of the success thus far and the confidence that each
company has placed in us as we work together to protect their customers. This
level of involvement and the ongoing growth reinforces the strength of both
the program and Trend Micro's cloud and data center security offering."

Being "Trend Ready" is the validation of a cloud infrastructure to support and
operate Trend Micro's comprehensive Cloud and Data Center Security Solution.
This includes Deep Security, the industry's first agentless security platform
offering anti-malware, Web reputation and firewall in addition to intrusion
prevention, integrity monitoring and log inspection; and SecureCloud™, which
provides encryption for protecting sensitive data in public cloud and
virtualized environments.

The "Trend Ready" designation indicates that the installation, activation and
functionality of Trend Micro solutions will seamlessly operate within each
cloud provider's ecosystem. By participating in the program, cloud service
providers are confirming to their customers that their cloud infrastructures
will work with Trend Micro security products.

Recent additions to the program span a variety of regions around the world:

North America:
"CSC is committed to providing its clients with next-generation security and
data protection in the cloud," said Siki Giunta, vice president and general
manager for CSC Cloud. "Our Trend Micro relationship is an example of our
commitment to securing our enterprise cloud as the preferred destination for
strategic workloads and applications."

"With our self-service cloud portal, vCloud, customers demand scalability and
accessibility," said Lubomir Ocko, managing director, Rackscale, a growing
cloud provider based in Slovakia. "Our 'Trend Ready' stamp of approval allows
us to provide them with the confidence that with the use of Trend Micro
solutions, their cloud infrastructure will be backed by one of the global
pioneers in information security."

"Trend Ready indicates to SmartCloud's customers that there is an option for
an additional level of protection that can be integrated into our dynamics
platform with VMware virtualization," said Samir Mazzer Chuffi, product
manager, data center and security for OI, one of Brazil's largest telecom
operators. "Now our customers will have the option to add industry-leading
cloud security, adding value to their environments and more confidence for
their end users."

Trend Micro seeks to evolve the program to encompass even more qualified cloud
service providers interested in offering the industry's leading cloud security
solutions through "Trend Ready" validation. For more information, please
