Trend Micro, a cloud security-based firm, announced its hybrid cloud security collaboration with the lately launched AWS Gateway Load Balancer (GWLB).
GWLB services were designed to deploy, scale, and manage third-party virtual appliances easily through AWS (Amazon Web Services).
“This integration provides customers with the ability to use trusted vendor appliances, like those from Trend Micro, in a way that is auto-scalable and operates to continuously meet security needs in an as-a-service format,” Trend Micro explains.
“In today’s economic reality, companies are quickly migrating their infrastructure into a hybrid cloud model to meet the demands of remote work. Gartner stated in a recent report, Dynamic cloud realities demand that controls automatically adapt to the protected workloads because an IP address alone is no longer sufficient for security. Trend Micro Cloud One Network Security with GWLB delivers protection that fits the dynamic nature of cloud migration.”
According to Mark Nunnikhoven, Vice President of Cloud Research for Trend Micro and Amazon Web Services Community Hero, security is a major concern that needs to be proactively addressed while handling functional IT operations, fulfilling compliance standards, and protecting complex systems in the cloud.
“Customers need an appliance that adapts to increased volume and automatically provides a centralized implementation of network security with less friction,” he said. “GWLB with Cloud One Network Security help solve this problem for security teams,” added Nunnikhoven.
“Security teams using GWLB with Trend Micro for their hybrid cloud security can benefit from high availability, scaling, and load balancing while maintaining all product features and benefits,” Nunnikhoven elaborated.
Mayumi Hiramatsu, Vice President, Amazon EC2 Networking, Amazon Web Services, Inc, said, “As companies move their infrastructure in the cloud, they are looking for ways to easily insert, scale, and manage security appliances in their network topologies.”
“Trend Micro is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner with a long-standing history of providing security solutions to help customers address their portion of the shared responsibility model,” he added.
“AWS Gateway Load Balancer with Trend Micro’s security solution is now available to more than 290,000 active buyers in Amazon Web Services Marketplace and can help our shared customers address their network security needs in the cloud,” Hiramatsu said.
Coincidently, the collaboration with GWLB coincides with Trend Micro’s release of its Cloud One Network Security solution, made available through Amazon Web Services Marketplace.
Last month, hybrid cloud security offerings by Trend Micro had entered into AWS Outposts Ready. This implies Trend Micro solutions are now completely capable of demonstrating integration with Outposts deployments.
