 Trend Micro Announces Comprehensive Capabilities for Microsoft Office 365  Customers  New features help protect against targeted attacks and data loss as  organizations migrate to the cloud  OTTAWA, July 21, 2014 /CNW/ - As more organizations transition to the cloud  for increased efficiencies and streamlined management of IT infrastructure,  Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader(1 )in cloud  security, today announced upcoming new and enhanced capabilities for Microsoft  Office 365 customers. These expanded services demonstrate Trend Micro's  commitment to delivering solutions that help secure cloud architectures  combined with centralized management, and comprehensive protection controls to  help guard against data loss and advanced malware within Microsoft Corp.'s  existing infrastructure.  "Our history with Microsoft runs deep, and our approach to providing customers  with sound security-enhanced options will help users achieve the full benefits  and ROI the cloud has to offer," said Partha Panda, vice president, global  channels and strategic alliances, Trend Micro. "This complementary approach to  security will help enable Microsoft partners to address their customers'  concerns so they can more effectively close deals. As the largest, pure-play  security software provider, we are deeply committed to being innovators in  cloud protection as adoption surges across global industries."  Trend Micro helps enhance Microsoft environments with multi-layered threat and  data protection that encompasses endpoints, Web and email. To better support  channel partners' ability to sell Trend Micro's additional solutions for  Microsoft Office 365, these centrally managed solutions will be available as  part of the Trend Micro Smart Protection Complete suite. This interconnected  set of security offerings delivers protection at endpoint, application and  network levels to protect users with the broadest range of anti-malware  capabilities available to thwart attacks such as Citadel, Luuuk, SpyEye and  ZeuS. The suite enables organizations to tailor their defense based on their  unique business requirements with flexible on-premise, cloud and hybrid  deployment models that fit dynamic IT environments as they transition to the  cloud.  "The cloud lets businesses stay focused on their customers and profits, rather  than worrying about the limitations of lengthy deployment processes or  outdated technology," said Kim Akers, general manager, Microsoft. "Companies  like Trend Micro have a breadth of knowledge about data security that help  secure cloud applications, and complement our solutions."  Trend Micro™ Cloud App Security This new offering works directly with Office  365 using a Microsoft API for Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive  for Business. By providing data at rest encryption with customer-managed keys,  customers will have added control of their data while preserving Office 365  functionality.  It also helps reduce risk with advanced malware scanning  through sandbox analysis and simplifies compliance with data loss prevention.
