Trend
Micro Incorporated
(TYO: 4704; TSE:
4704
), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced
enhancements to its Deep Security™  and Cloud App Security products
designed to extend protection to virtual machines on the Google Cloud Platform,
Kubernetes platform protection, container image scanning integration with
the  Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and
Gmail on the G Suite.

Trend
Micro
Executive Vice President, Network
Defense and Hybrid Cloud Security
, Steve Quane said, "An increasing number of
businesses are investing in Google Cloud and Kubernetes to drive efficiencies
and business agility. It is critical for enterprises to remember that they
share in the responsibility of what they put in the cloud. Customers count on
us to ease the implementation and automation of security earlier in the
development process and to ensure the safe migration between the data center,
hybrid cloud and even multi-cloud environments."

To
address this need, Trend Micro has created a Google Cloud Platform (GCP)
Connector that enables automated discovery, visibility and protection of GCP
virtual machine instances. This eases the management by giving an instant view
of all GCP workloads while also showing any virtual machines that might have
been deployed outside of security purview or under shadow IT projects. This
feature of Trend Micro Deep Security has the ability to automatically deploy
policy via automated workflows, combat advanced malware, enhance network and
system security and capture workload telemetry for threat investigations.

Container
users can benefit from Kubernetes platform protection at runtime with Deep
Security intrusion prevention (IPS) rules, integrity monitoring and log
inspection. Our IPS approach allows you to inspect both east-west and
north-south traffic between containers and platform layers like Kubernetes.
Additionally, Trend Micro's Deep Security provides container image scanning in
the build pipeline for vulnerabilities, malware, embedded secrets / keys and
compliance checks. Deployed as a Kubernetes Helm Chart, this container image
scanning simplifies security deployment on popular services like Google
Kubernetes Engine (GKE),
Azure Kubernetes
Service (AKS) and Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS).

Research continues to show that email remains
one of the most popular threat vectors which drove Trend Micro to expand its
popular Cloud App Security platform to support Gmail users within G Suite.
Organizations are increasingly looking to cloud email services to boost
productivity and agility. Trend Micro has the most comprehensive email security
coverage, with both Office 365 and now Gmail, to ensure malicious threats have
no place to hide.
 

Collectively these innovations demonstrate
Trend Micro's commitment to the Google community. The company will be
previewing these innovations in booth #1615 at this week's
Google Cloud Next in San Francisco, California.
