SoftwareONE Picks Trend Micro to Team Up to Protect Microsoft Azure Cloud Environments

SoftwareONE announced today it is collaborating with Trend Micro, a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, to launch Security for Azure, a managed security service that enables organizations to protect their Microsoft Azure environment. SoftwareONE empowers customers to intelligently shift to consumption-based models in the cloud that deliver more efficiency from the start. The new managed security service ensures customer cloud environments are hardened and secure from day one.

Built upon the Trend Micro Deep Security solution, SoftwareONE's Security for Azure, will plan, configure, implement and support security within the customer's Azure environment as added protection to Azure's built-in security controls to provide a secure foundation. The combination of SoftwareONE managed service and the Trend Micro solution enables organizations to detect and prevent known and unknown threats, protect applications, stop suspicious and unauthorized attempts and harden resources deployed in the Azure environment.

The SoftwareONE Security Operation Center (SOC) continuously monitors the customer environment, enabling organizations to more quickly and effectively respond to security incidents. Trend Micro's Deep Security capabilities are optimized to protect Azure deployments across data centers, private and public clouds, and hybrid deployments. The combination of the two solutions enables organizations to secure their Azure environment and put in place security controls to accelerate compliance.

"We share a commitment, along with SoftwareONE, to protect and streamline our customers' journey to the cloud," said Sanjay Mehta, SVP, Business Development & Strategic Alliances, Trend Micro. "This new offering answers the demands of organizations needing to design, implement and operate successful and secure cloud deployments."

"Security is a shared responsibility between the customer and the cloud provider," said Mike Fitzgerald, global leader - Solutions at SoftwareONE. "Joining forces with Trend Micro enables our customers to more effectively protect their host infrastructure, network, applications, identities, endpoints and data. Our security services empower in-house teams to assess security and compliance risks and protect their cloud environments against cyber harm."

With cyber threats and risks on the rise due to an expanding attack surface, motivated threat actors and ever-changing regulations, SoftwareONE's security services enable organizations to prioritize and protect their cloud environments.
