Trend Micro Envisions Smart, Data-centric Security for the Post-PC Era

Consumerization, cloud adoption and targeted attacks drive the need for a new security model.

CUPERTINO, Calif., Oct. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of its annual Insight event for the analyst community, Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cloud security leader, today unveiled the company's vision for a smarter security model inspired by a changing security landscape now marked by data breaches, and the opportunities and challenges generated by mobile devices, cloud implementations and targeted attacks.

Trend Micro CEO, Eva Chen, outlined her vision of the new model, the core of which centers on a data-centric, anti-hacker framework:

  • The security industry is at a crossroads, facing a complicated horizon that covers an escalation of targeted attacks against companies; growth in the use of unsecured personal mobile devices; and cloud implementations where data can be accessed anytime, anywhere. A bolder approach to security is needed within this new environment where users don't know who or what to trust.
  • Unlike traditional, perimeter-centric security, which assumed protectable boundaries surround critical data, the new model recognizes the level to which data is exposed and aims to rebuild lost confidence by shifting focus to the data itself.
  • Trend Micro plans to build trust within the post-PC landscape where data and devices are exposed and ubiquitous. The new security model puts the spotlight on data by integrating threat and data protection capabilities within a unified framework, ensuring visibility into who is accessing what data, when, where and how.
  • This new model updates and adds to the power of the Trend Micro(TM) Smart Protection Network(TM) infrastructure, which correlates data from more than 70 billion daily queries and has protected more than 130 million users since it was first unveiled in 2008. Customers of all sizes will continue to benefit from this real-time, cloud-based protection.
  • Under this vision, the company will build upon the cloud-based security of the Smart Protection Network by adding two essential capabilities developed with the underlying principle that data needs to be protected wherever it travels and wherever it resides:
    • Smarter threat protection brings the power of Trend Micro's global, cloud-based detection and correlation technologies inside a customer's environment with newly-developed local threat intelligence throughout their network to identify and protect against targeted attacks.
    • Smarter data protection enables integrated data protection and contextual awareness throughout the organization to ensure the confidentiality and protection of valuable data across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
  • Trend Micro is delivering more adaptive and contextually-aware security that protects the data itself - whether on a device or server; at home or on the road; in physical, virtual or cloud environments -- and provides the intelligent integration and coordination required to manage, control and defend that data in real time.

Benefits for both businesses and consumers

  • For businesses, the realization of Trend Micro's vision will mean better, faster threat protection; adaptive security that enables rather than hinders business productivity; and increased efficiency and manageability of their security, which leads to lower TCO. It means they can embrace the opportunities and advantages of cloud computing and consumerization with new confidence.
  • For consumers, Trend Micro will be better equipped to protect their digital lives located on computers, smartphones, or smartpads. With security threats becoming more pervasive and cybercriminals targeting consumers on mobile devices or engaging with friends on social networking sites, consumers of all ages need smarter, more complete protection.

Roadmap

During 2012 and beyond, this smarter new security model will be integrated into select Trend Micro security solutions already powered by the Smart Protection Network, serving customers who are especially concerned about their journey into the cloud, the growth of consumerization of IT within their companies, and the spread of targeted attacks. The model will manifest itself across four main Trend Micro cloud solution "pillars" of: data, infrastructure, mobile devices, and applications.

Supporting quotes:

Eva Chen, CEO, Trend Micro

"Stagnation is not an option in an industry where a multi-billion dollar cybercriminal enterprise works relentlessly to steal customers' data - and their trust. We need to continually innovate to stay ahead, and help our customers regain confidence as we deliver better security. Three years ago, Trend Micro led the industry with the Smart Protection Network, which delivered security from the cloud. Now, we are moving even further ahead in the face of advanced, multi-faceted, targeted attacks by leveraging our scalable cloud security advantage and customizing it for the data, infrastructure, devices and applications supporting the cloud journey."

Steve Quane, Chief Product Officer, Trend Micro

"This is a fundamental change in the approach to security for organizations who have relied on a perimeter-based network security model, and for consumers whose digital lives are increasingly mobile. Our new data-centric framework takes into account the changes required to secure data in an accelerating cloud-dominated world."

For most organizations, the move to hybrid cloud is now a question of when, not if. Fully 82% of enterprises plan to have a hybrid cloud strategy this year, according to Infoholic Research. The worldwide hybrid cloud computing market is expected to grow about 34% annually over the next five years, reaching $241.13 billion by 2022. Companies are embracing hybrid cloud because of the many advantages it offers compared to relying on a single provider for all of their cloud needs. Hybrid offers bala...
Companies have always been concerned that traditional enterprise software is slow and complex to install, often disrupting critical and time-sensitive operations during roll-out. With the growing need to integrate new digital technologies into the enterprise to transform business processes, this concern has become even more pressing.

There's a lot to gain from cloud computing, but success requires a thoughtful and enterprise focused approach. Cloud computing decouples data and information from the infrastructure on which it lies. A process that is a LOT more involved than dragging some folders from your desktop to a shared drive. Cloud computing as a mission transformation activity, not a technological one. As an organization moves from local information hosting to the cloud, one of the most important challenges is addressi...

Microservices are increasingly used in the development world as developers work to create larger, more complex applications that are better developed and managed as a combination of smaller services that work cohesively together for larger, application-wide functionality. Tools such as Service Fabric are rising to meet the need to think about and build apps using a piece-by-piece methodology that is, frankly, less mind-boggling than considering the whole of the application at once. Today, we'll ...

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
A common misconception about the cloud is that one size fits all. Companies expecting to run all of their operations using one cloud solution or service must realize that doing so is akin to forcing the totality of their business functionality into a straightjacket. Unlocking the full potential of the cloud means embracing the multi-cloud future where businesses use their own cloud, and/or clouds from different vendors, to support separate functions or product groups. There is no single cloud so...
Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
Hybrid IT is today’s reality, and while its implementation may seem daunting at times, more and more organizations are migrating to the cloud. In fact, according to SolarWinds 2017 IT Trends Index: Portrait of a Hybrid IT Organization 95 percent of organizations have migrated crucial applications to the cloud in the past year. As such, it’s in every IT professional’s best interest to know what to expect.
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming.
