As more organizations transition to the cloud for increased efficiency and streamlined management of IT infrastructure, Trend Micro has enhanced security capabilities for Microsoft Office 365 customers.
Cloud App Security integrates directly with Office 365 using a Microsoft API for Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and OneDrive for Business. By providing data at rest encryption with customer-managed keys, customers will have added control of their data while preserving Office 365 functionality. It also reduces risk with advanced malware scanning through sandbox analysis and simplifies compliance with data loss prevention.
Trend Micro Hosted Email Security provides spam and malware filtering for Office 365, protecting users by scanning emails for malicious attachments and URLs, spam and graymail, and phishing attacks. The coming update includes enhanced spearphishing protection and hidden malware detection.
The offerings include centralized management and comprehensive protection controls to guard against data loss and advanced malware within Microsoft’s existing secure infrastructure.
“Our history with Microsoft runs deep, and our combined approach to providing customers with sound security will help users achieve the full benefits and ROI the cloud has to offer,” said Partha Panda, vice president of global channels and strategic alliances at Trend Micro. “This complementary approach to security will enable Microsoft partners to address their customers’ security concerns so they can more effectively close deals. As the largest, pure-play security software provider, we are deeply committed to being innovators in cloud protection as adoption surges across global industries.”
Trend Micro enhances Microsoft environments with multi-layered threat and data protection that encompasses endpoints, Web and e-mail. These will be available as part of the Trend Micro Smart Protection Complete suite, an interconnected set of security offerings for protection at endpoint, application and network levels, which enable partners to tailor offerings based on their customers’ unique business requirements. Solutions include flexible on-premise, cloud and hybrid deployment models that fit dynamic IT environments as they transition to the cloud.
“Being a partner of both Microsoft and Trend Micro allows us to offer powerful solutions that will help our customers’ businesses grow by providing user-friendly technology that drives productivity and profitability as securely as possible,” said Mike Hogan, Microsoft general manager at En Pointe Technologies. “We are excited to learn that Trend Micro is continuing to invest in its Microsoft relationship. Microsoft’s cloud services meet the needs of a wide variety of our customers, and the inclusion of Trend Micro gives us the ability to create an even stronger selling point.”
