Latest analyst report finds Trend Micro holds three times the market share of number two player

Cybage software deploys Trend Micro’s solutions to strengthen its security posture across heterogeneous environment

Bangalore, NFAPost: Trend Micro Incorporated, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, announced it has been ranked No 1 in 2019 market share for Hybrid Cloud Workload Security, according to IDC’s Worldwide Hybrid Cloud Workload Security Market Shares, 2019 (doc #US46398420, June 2020) report.

With a market share of 29.5% last year, three times that of the number two vendor, Trend Micro was described in the report as the “800-pound gorilla” in this space and “the dominant leader in SDC workload protection.”

Lauding the customers and partners of the company Trend Micro Product Vice President said Wendy Moore said as IDC mentions in its report, Trend Micro leadership position in this space is no accident.

“We spotted how important workload security was going to be more than a decade ago and have been building out our capabilities ever since. While other vendors shout loudly about their professed leadership, IDC’s findings paint a different picture,” said Trend Micro Product Vice President said Wendy Moore.

Trend Micro Product Vice President said Wendy Moore said the company continues to build on our market position with new products and capabilities designed to support customers’ growth ambitions in hybrid cloud and cloud infrastructure services.

IDCdefines hybrid cloud workload protection as protecting the VMs and containers that run on top of SDC environments. Trend Micro made its first moves in this space back in 2009, by investing significantly in recently acquired host-based intrusion-prevention and firewall software for cloud and virtualized data center environments.

The report goes on to mention that the keys to Trend Micro’s position include significant cloud innovations, as well as the acquisition of Cloud Conformity to tackle customers’ cloud misconfiguration challenges. Additionally, a partnership with Snyk helps to address vulnerabilities stemming from DevOps teams’ reuse of open source code repositories.

Following the successful acquisition of Cloud Conformity, an AWS Technology Partner of the Year in 2019, Trend Micro has continued to build-out its non-AWS capabilities, with support for VMs on Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Kubernetes platform protection, and integration of container image scanning in the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE).

Trend Micro created a GCP Connector to automate the discovery and protection of GCP VM instances and was named 2019 Google Cloud Technology Partner of the Year for Security.

According to IDC, “Trend Micro has not rested on its position, rather continues to invest.” To this end, Trend Micro launched Cloud One at the end of 2019. This unified SaaS platform holistically addresses customer cloud security challenges in several key areas: data center servers and VMs; IaaS workloads; containers and container services; cloud security posture management; cloud file & object storage services; and serverless.

The IDC market share ranking comes on the back of similar recognition for Trend Micro in the Forrester Wave™: Cloud Workload Security, Q4 2019 report.

Cybage software deploys Trend Micro’s solutions

Trend Micro Incorporated is providing its security solutions to Cybage Software, a global technology engineering services organization. Trend Micro Deep Security, which is implemented across 100 servers of the company, enables comprehensive protection for on-premises data centers, and prevents the spread of viruses, spyware and other threats to various internal and external endpoints. The solution currently supports over 1,500 kernels of Linux at Cybage Software, making processes faster and more efficient.

Securing their Linux-based servers from hosting infected files was a major priority for Cybage Software. They needed a solution that could provide end-to-end coverage for all of their Linux servers and Trend Micro was able to give adequate support. With Trend Micro Deep Security, they have been able to prevent unauthorized software changes, and stop the execution of unknown and unwanted applications. The solution also integrates well with existing applications.

As a large organization, Cybage Software had adopted a multi-vendor approach to their IT environment and had a number of stand-alone IT solutions. Trend Micro seamlessly manages to keep operations from all these vendors running smoothly. The console comes with a completely customizable dashboard that allows us to closely monitor the status of each layer of security—anti-malware, web reputation, firewall, integrity monitoring, and intrusion prevention—in a single pane of glass.

Cybage Software Pvt. Ltd Information Systems and Security Head Satish Kharat said with virtual patching, the company has been able to take a systematic approach to patching, scheduling it as needed and when it’s most suitable for the company, rather than rushing to find a solution under the threat of an attack. 

“Trend Micro offered exhaustive coverage and comprehensive protection, making it the product of choice. Deep Security helped eliminate the operational pains and downtime of emergency patching, and reduce the risk of breach disclosure costs. Also, Trend Micro team was always available on hand to provide support and guidance, and the solution itself was easy to use,” said Cybage Software Pvt. Ltd Information Systems and Security Head Satish Kharat.

Vijendra Katiyar, Director – Enterprise Business, India & SAARC, Trend Micro said Cybage Software was looking for a solution that could not only defend against vulnerabilities of servers but also support heterogeneous environment i.e. Linux and windows.

“Trend Micro simplified their security operations through Deep Security, which offers a consolidated security controls like next generation anti-malware capabilities, application control, log monitoring and virtual patching which helps in addressing known and unknown vulnerabilities. By applying automated virtual patches to servers and applications, it shields servers until an actual patch is applied,” said Vijendra Katiyar, Director – Enterprise Business, India & SAARC, Trend Micro.

Trend Micro has proposed that Cybage Software evaluate the endpoint security solution -Trend Micro Apex One, to eliminate security gaps and stop threats across the entire organization. Apex One will help leverage a blend of cross-generational threat techniques to provide protection against all types of threats. This will further strengthen endpoints’ security posture of Cybage Software by using a host-based intrusion prevention system that would provide real-time visibility into activities on their servers.
