IDC picks Trend Micro as the top vendor in SDC workload protection
Cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro has been named as the number one vendor in Software-Defined Compute (SDC) workload protection in IDC’s latest report.
Trend Micro company achieved a market share lead of 35.5% in 2018. Steve Quane, Trend Micro’s network defence and hybrid cloud security executive VP, said: “We predicted a decade ago that organisations would need multi-layered security to protect their cloud environments and software-defined data centres.”
Frank Dickson, IDC’s security and trust program vice president said: “For years, Trend Micro has steadily built out its SDC workload protection capabilities for virtual, public cloud and container environments, offering tight integration with AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform.”
"Although the future has not been written, Trend Micro is the dominant player in this market," he added.
Real-time security has been embedded into running applications over this time and Trend Micro has made sure that it focuses on security-as-code and automation in order to seamlessly build protection into DevOps pipelines, including pre-runtime scanning of container images. This carries on with the launch of XDR in the month of August.
XDR plays an important role in correlating data across network, server, email, endpoint, and cloud workloads in order to identify spiteful activity which might otherwise go unnoticed.
In the month of October, Trend Micro further built on these capabilities by its move to acquire Cloud Conformity, a leader in security posture management. The firm announced the launch of its cloud security services program called Trend Micro Cloud One to address security challenges faced by customers around storage, data centre, IaaS, serverless architectures and containers.
