Trend Micro announces Deep Security 8.0

Trend Micro, renowned player in antivirus cloud computing security and internet content security software, has announced the Deep Security 8.0 that further expands its server security platform in the IT industry across physical, virtual and cloud computing environments. The latest version marks the beginning of a new era for datacenter security platforms. Protection for the next generation datacenter with support for all protection modules for physical, virtual and cloud is now offered. With an all-new agentless integrity monitoring capability purpose-built for VMware vSphere 5 virtual environments and other cloud-sourced innovations, Deep Security 8.0 is designed to lower the barrier to adoption of file integrity monitoring across the data center and help small and midsize businesses (SMBs) achieve higher levels of data protection and compliance.

This server security platform comprises anti-malware, firewall, IDS/IPS, Web application protection, Application control, integrity monitoring and log inspection in one integrated solution, Deep Security 8.0 offers new features for Physical and Virtual Datacenter Security Platform, including automatic cloud-based event white-listing and configurable trusted events to help lower the operational complexity of integrity monitoring, and agent-based anti-malware to allow businesses to extend the same Deep Security protections to physical servers for Windows (Support Windows 2003, 2008, XP, Vista) and Linux operating systems. The agent hardening prevents malware and user tampering on Windows Anti-malware agent.

"Quality is one of our key goals and we are proud to bring Deep Security 8.0. It is a comprehensive, adaptive, and highly efficient server security platform that protects enterprise applications and data from breaches and business disruptions without expensive emergency patching. This comprehensive server security platform helps to simplify security operations while enabling regulatory compliance and accelerating the ROI of virtualization and cloud projects," commented Amit Nath, Country Manager, India & SAARC, Trend Micro.

For virtual servers, the platform offers agentless file integrity monitoring through the same Deep Security Virtual Appliance that already provides agentless anti-malware and agentless intrusion prevention in a virtual environment, flexible deployment architecture that allows select VMs to be set up with optional agents that coordinate with the virtual appliance for added defense in depth, and support for VMware vSphere 5 and VMware vShield Manager 5, with VMware vShield Endpoint Security API 2, as well as backward compatibility with VMware vSphere 4.1 with VMware vShield 1.0.

Deep Security 8.0 offers agent-based anti-malware for VDI local mode, which allows continuously optimized protection of virtual desktops as they move outside, and back, into the data center, and the platform leverages web reputation capabilities to protect users from accessing compromised websites. For virtual desktop environments protected by Deep Security agentless anti-malware, Deep Security now provides an optional End-user Notifier that can provide malware notifications in lieu of a full-blown anti-malware agent.

Deep security 8.0 assists the acceleration of virtualization investments, higher VM consolidation rates, ensures cost-effective compliance and moves safely to the cloud.
