Trend Micro’s Deep Security platform has been certified as a VCE Validation Ready solution through the VCE Technology Alliance Partner (TAP) program.
The TAP program is designed for independent software vendors, hardware manufacturers, virtual appliance vendors and other technology providers seeking to ready solutions for deployment with VCE Vblock Systems.
Trend Micro Australia and New Zealand director of Cloud and Datacentre security, Sasha Pavlovic, said the firm was excited to strengthen its partnership with VCE through the program to protect converged and hyper-converged systems.
“With Deep Security, VCE Vblock System customers can focus on their business rather than worrying about their IT Infrastructure with the peace of mind that they are protected by the market leader in server security,” he said.
VCE Vblock Systems are pre-integrated, pre-tested and pre-validated IT infrastructures that combine compute, network, storage, data protection and virtualisation technologies from Cisco, EMC and VMware. These are delivered as a single product with unified support.
Trend Micro said the certification validates Deep Security to work optimally for all the key use cases and reassures customers that the converged solution provides key compliance capabilities that can assist with HIPAA, PCI, and other compliance frameworks.
Deep Security was the first certified Vblock Ready content security solution in 2012. It provides security for physical, virtual and Cloud servers from a single comprehensive platform, featuring centralised administration and reporting capabilities.
The solution includes both system and network security controls to address the protection of virtual workloads.
Trend Micro said the solution is optimised for virtual and Cloud environments and lets customers scale securely without compromising on performance and agility.
Deep Security has developed security that supports and integrates with virtualisation offerings, including VMware vSphere, NSX, and Horizon, Citrix XenDesktop, and key enterprise applications such as SAP and Oracle.
VCE senior director technology alliances and business development, DJ Long,said the company was pleased to welcome Trend Micro into the Validation Ready program.
“As a VCE Validation Ready solution, Trend Micro Deep Security can be integrated with Vblock Systems, delivering transformative Datacentre solutions and key compliance capabilities for mutual customers that enable the agility, simplicity and economics of converged infrastructure with Trend Micro’s expertise in Cloud, Datacentre and virtualisation security,” he said.
VCE works with Superna to conduct and administer the Validation Ready and Vblock Ready certifications for TAP program members. These certifications enable mutual channel partners and customers to accelerate adoption of Vblock Systems while leveraging Deep Security to protect workloads.
Trend Micro said joint partners, customers and prospects can test configurations and applications, protected by Deep Security, using a remote POC that leverages the remotely accessible VCE Validation Ready test bed at Superna.
