Trend Micro Releases Deep Security 8 Platform
Deep Security 8 offers new features for physical servers, including configurable trusted events.Security specialist Trend Micro announced the next release of its Deep Security platform that further expands its server security platform in the IT industry across physical, virtual and cloud computing environments. With an all-new agentless integrity monitoring capability purpose-built for VMware vSphere 5 virtual environments, including hypervisor integrity checks and other cloud-sourced innovations, Deep Security 8 is designed to lower the barrier to adoption of file integrity monitoring across the data center and help small and midsize businesses (SMBs) achieve higher levels of data protection and compliance. A server security platform comprising anti-malware, firewall, IDS/IPS, Web application protection, integrity monitoring and log inspection in one integrated solution, Deep Security 8 offers new features for physical servers, including automatic cloud-based event white-listing and configurable trusted events to help lower the operational complexity of integrity monitoring, and agent-based anti-malware to allow businesses to extend the same Deep Security protections to physical servers for Windows and Linux operating systems.
For virtual servers, the platform offers agentless file integrity monitoring through the same Deep Security Virtual Appliance that already provides agentless anti-malware and agentless intrusion prevention in a virtual environment, flexible deployment architecture that allows select VMs to be set up with optional agents that coordinate with the virtual appliance for added defense in depth, hypervisor integrity monitoring utilizing Intel TPM/TXT technology and support for VMware vSphere 5 and VMware vShield Manager 5, with VMware vShield Endpoint Security API 2, as well as backward compatibility with VMware vSphere 4.1 with VMware vShield 1.0.
SecureCloud is delivered as a convenient hosted SaaS (software-as-a-service) solution under a free two-month trial or as an on-premise software application. Service provider delivery options that provide unified billing and rapid deployment are also available. Perpetual-based pricing aligns with traditional security pricing, but there is also subscription-based pricing. The current SecureCloud product version is available for purchase now through Trend Micro sales and channel partners, and through cloud brokers and service providers. SecureCloud 2 is projected to be available by the end of the year and can be purchased separately or as part of a Total Cloud Protection pack with Deep Security 8.
