Cloud Computing Security

Nearly half of all companies struggle to secure their journey to the cloud.

See the results of our annual cloud security survey (PDF) 

Computing is rapidly moving from the physical world, to the virtual world and the cloud.

For consumers and businesses alike, cloud computing offers cost-effective, easy-to-use applications and services, but you need to know your personal information and files are secure. You need to understand the opportunities of cloud computing, as well as the risks, to make the move that’s right for you and your business.

Virtual servers are already outpacing physical ones, and Gartner predicts that in a few short years 71% of server workloads will be virtualized.

However, in Trend Micro’s annual global cloud security survey (PDF), we found that with greater cloud adoption comes greater concern about security. More than half of the decision makers surveyed stated that data security is a key reason for holding back their adoption of cloud solutions.

Finding the right security strategy can help you take advantage of the amazing potential virtualization and cloud computing offer your company including:

  • Lower capital and operational costs – consolidating the number of servers used and turning on VMs only as the business demands it
  • Increased business agility – offering new services quickly and easily
  • Instant scalability – turning on and off VMs as required
  • Anywhere, anytime access – offering business services to your users who are in the office, at home or on a mobile device

 

Ideally, a solution would be integrated with the administration of leading virtualization suppliers and cloud providers so that appropriate security would be automatically applied across all of your platforms – physical, virtual and cloud.

Trend Micro began its own journey to the cloud with the development of the Smart Protection Network infrastructure more than five years ago. By providing more complete threat intelligence, faster threat detection and blocking, and smaller pattern file updates, Smart Protection Network has proved the efficacy of cloud-based protection. We continue to expand the capabilities of Smart Protection Network by applying big data analytics to keep pace with the volume, variety, and velocity of today’s threats.

While delivering security from the cloud, we've taken an active role in advancing security technologies for the cloud. As an early adopter of virtualization and cloud computing, we gained a clear understanding of the challenges to extending threat protection into emerging cloud environments, resulting in product innovations that lead the industry and continue to evolve.

Our Cloud and Data Center solution protects physical, virtual and cloud servers, as well as virtual desktops, with automated, comprehensive security.

Unlike other vendors, we enable you to cost-effectively centralize policy control and monitor security across your physical, virtual and cloud environments with a single platform. Our solution is integrated with VMware vCenter and vCloud, and Amazon Web Services to automate security policy enforcement, and includes multi-tenancy management for businesses and service providers who need overall control with segregated administration for departments or other organizations.

As the market leader in cloud security, virtualization security, and server security, our solution is the only true cloud security platform optimized for today’s virtualization and cloud environments.
