Trend Micro Delivers the Industry’s Most Complete Security Across Cloud and Container Workloads

Cloud-native security customized to the demand of DevOps to protect and scale environments

 

HONG KONG, CHINA - Media OutReach - 15 May 2019 - Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704),
a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced the availability of
the industry's most complete security from a single solution protecting across
cloud and container workloads. This leadership has been achieved through
newly launched
container security capabilities added to Trend Micro Deep Security to elevate
protection across the entire DevOps lifecycle and runtime stack.

 

From
virtual servers and data centers to public and private cloud workloads,
containers are increasingly used and demand protection. Leading enterprises are
bringing together their application development teams, IT operations and their
security team to help the business deliver automated, secured applications to
market quicker. Trend Micro connects teams with technology tools that bake
security into the process while meeting compliance needs and reducing risk.

 

"While customers have been
securing their containers with our technology for a couple of years now, we are
proud to

significantly expand our offering
," said Steve
Quane
, Executive Vice President,
Network Defense and Hybrid Cloud Security
for
Trend Micro. "Unlike many of the one-off point solutions crowding the market,
our offering provides automated build-pipeline container image scanning, and
extensive runtime protection providing full visibility and control.
What is
strikingly unique is our consolidated tool for container plus workload security
in every environment.
"

 

Senior analyst and group
director Doug Cahill at Enterprise Strategy Group believed, "Developers might
be surprised by the scope of this new offering. The on-going deployment of
application containers into production environments requires that the entire
build-ship-run continuum be secured. As such, protection across the CI/CD
pipeline for container environments must include the ability to the detect
vulnerabilities, secrets, malware, and misconfigurations for early protection
at build time, while delivering critical threat protection across on-prem and
cloud host, orchestration and container layers at runtime."

 

The new
features available now in Trend Micro's container security solution include:

 

Securing across the complete DevOps
lifecycle
 

 

Within
the software build-pipeline, Trend Micro has extended its container image
scanning to include pre-registry scanning, providing earlier detection of
vulnerabilities and malware over and above scanning the trusted registry for
any future threats. Deep Security will now also scan for embedded secrets such
as passwords and private keys and provide compliance and configuration
validation checks, along with image assertion for digitally signed images.

 

Securing across the
entire stack

 

At
runtime of the container, Trend Micro has boosted container platform protection
across Docker and Kubernetes. Deep Security has long ensured protection for the
host and containers at runtime. This includes intrusion prevention system (IPS)
rules
, integrity monitoring to detect compromised instances
of the platform, as well as log inspection.

 

To
ensure complete protection, Trend Micro inspects all lateral and horizontal
traffic movement (east, west, north, south) between containers and platform
layers like Kubernetes and Docker. 

 

Securing while granting
full control

 

To
increase automation and decrease manual tasks, security and operations teams
using Trend Micro can now use any command shell to execute the application
program interfaces (APIs). This additional option ensures full control of
deploying policies, automation of monitoring, reporting and more. This
completely new set of representational state transfer APIs have been written to
automate security for application development and operations teams across the
container orchestration tools and runtime environments.
