Taking a holistic approach to defending today’s firms and organizations against cyber-attacks, Trend Micro, has come out with the Connected Threat Defense mechanism, which helps protect, detect, and respond quite effectively.
With a 360-degree monitoring of network traffic, Trend Micro’s Connected Threat Defense is powered by XGen security and currently supported and leveraged by all three Trend Micro solutions – User Protection, Network Defense, and Hybrid Cloud Security; and supported by their products which include Deep Discovery, Deep Security, OfficeScan, ScanMail Exchange, Control Manager and InterScan Messaging solutions.
“The need for a Connected Threat Defense has emerged because the traditional model is no longer sufficient to defend against today’s attacks and threats. Organizations often use a variety of security products where managing the complexity and volume becomes a daunting task, and the threats growing across the network may remain undetected. With multiple security techniques, Trend Micro’s Connected Threat Defense provides scanning and disinfection of any incoming malware. If an attack is detected, targeted intelligence covering malicious files, IP addresses, and C&C communications is shared across products and environments for protection and these objects are blocked automatically when they are encountered next time which is a benefit of Connected Threat Defense”, said Nilesh Jain, Vice President – South-East Asia & India, Trend Micro.
The protection quadrant proactively protects networks, endpoints, and hybrid cloud environments. The detection quadrant includes network inspection and custom sandboxing. The response phase delivers real-time signatures and security updates to the other quadrants to prevent future attacks, identify root cause and speed up remediation. The central visibility and control provides a comprehensive view of the security of networks, endpoints, and hybrid cloud environments, and simplifies threat investigation and day-to-day management tasks.
Sharing his views on the efficacy of the new integrated security solutions, Mrutyunjay Mahapatra, DMD & CIO, SBI said, “We’ve partnered with Trend Micro for their Endpoint, Gateway and Data Centre Security solutions. To secure our ‘crown jewels’ that are going to be hosted on these virtualized servers, we are also in the process of securing Trend Micro’s Data Centre Security solution – Deep Security that provides host based security capabilities such as Virtual Patching that detects and patches vulnerabilities automatically across all OS and Applications on the fly. This solution requires no down time to deploy and can be used across physical, virtual and cloud platforms.”
Some of the other clients of the Connected Threat Defense solution provided by Trend Micro are Lupin Pharma, LIC Mutual Fund, Eli Group, BookMyShow, Anandabazar Patrika, and Evalueserve.
