People are rightfully concerned about the security and protection of their data in the era of mobility, consumerisation, cloud computing and targeted attacks. A new approach is required.
In the cloud, data is not tied to one server or even one group of servers, and it can be accessed from multiple devices simultaneously. Therefore, to protect data security solutions must shift from defense of a fixed perimeter towards an approach that protects the data as it travels from physical to virtual to cloud environments.
In the post-PC era, Trend Micro envisions a smart, data-centric security framework that advances the capabilities of our cloud-based Smart Protection Network, adds smarter threat protection that correlates local threat intelligence; smarter data protection that follows and protects your data; and unified security management that increases visibility into data access and potential attacks. Smart, data-centric security delivers:
There are four reasons our security framework is smarter:
Trend Micro is uniquely positioned to combine global threat intelligence, customer-specific threat intelligence, data protection technologies, and central management capability to more quickly identify targeted attacks and better protect customer data, while others continue with a more limted approach.
Smarter threat protection is advancing the global threat intelligence model (Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™) by bringing it into the corporate network or within a device.
Attacks tend to cross multiple areas within a network or within a device. Web, email, network, and files are all used to perpetrate and propagate attacks.
By correlating and analysing all of these events together, Trend Micro can quickly identify attacks and help organisations respond and mitigate their damage, whether the attack is across the network or within a single device.
Smarter data protection enables integrated data protection and contextual awareness across the organisation to ensure the confidentiality and protection of your valuable data across physical, virtual and cloud environments.
Integrated data protection represents a fundamental shift in the way Trend Micro approaches data protection. Rather than having siloed capability, data loss prevention (and in some cases encryption & device control) is being integrated across platforms and managed through a unified central console.
This brings a new level of contextual awareness and visibility across the Trend Micro product portfolio
The smart, data-centric security framework builds on the superior technology of the Trend Micro™ Smart Protection Network™ infrastructure, integrating smarter threat and data protection along with unified security management to deliver adaptive security that protects your important data wherever it resides – from a device to a server; at home or on the road; in physical, virtual or cloud environments.
Smarter threat protection brings the power of our cloud-based detection and correlation technologies inside a customer’s environment with intelligent sensors throughout the network to identify and protect against targeted attacks. Smarter data protection enables integrated data protection and contextual awareness throughout the organisation to ensure the confidentiality and protection of valuable data.
Three important trends are coalescing in the computing industry to create a unique set of security challenges.
First, we’ve recently seen the escalation of targeted attacks against companies by sophisticated hackers using advanced, hard to detect techniques that capture valuable data and may remain undiscovered for long periods of time.
Second, growth in consumerisation – the use of unsecured personal mobile devices in the workplace – is exposing company information to risk.
Third, and perhaps most impactful, cloud computing is revolutionising the way businesses and people consume, share and use increasing amounts of digital information, stretching the boundaries of individuals’ and companies’ security perimeter beyond the PC and beyond the network, and making access to information and computing power easier, faster and more affordable for people everywhere.
With a smart, data-centric security framework, you’ll be able to:
Our vision is different from our competitors in the following ways:
Stopping targeted attacks or advanced persistent threats requires more than a point solution. We believe combining threat and data protection within a context-aware security framework which identifies who is accessing what data when, where and how, can help quickly identify and mitigate these attacks.
Managed with a central, policy-based platform that improves visibility of the threat lifecycle can significantly enhance your ability to protect yourself against targeted attacks.
With these enhancements, Trend Micro will be able to deliver adaptive security that protects your important data wherever it resides – from a device to a server; at home or on the road; in physical, virtual or cloud environments.
Integrated data loss prevention, encryption and context-aware threat sensors throughout the network identify who is accessing what data, when, where and how. Intelligent search capability, dynamic threat analysis, and central policy management allow users to rapidly deploy mitigation solutions across their ecosystem.
Only Trend Micro provides the intelligent integration required to manage, control and defend your data in real time. It’s security made smarter.
