Cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro has announced the extension of its network protection to the cloud, now available on Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace.

This was delivered in response to the operational challenges enterprises often experience with available network security solutions.

It will first be available for AWS Transit Gateway, with multiple deployment models planned to follow.

“Cloud security is the highest priority for AWS, and we are committed to helping customers achieve the highest levels of security in the cloud,” says Amazon Web Services EC2 compute and networking services vice president Dave Brown.

“As companies move and scale their infrastructure in the cloud, they are looking for ways to easily insert and manage security appliances in their network topologies.

Trend Micro’s security solution was built to accommodate the growing amount of network teams being tasked with extending their security to the cloud.

It does so by utilising the AWS Transit Gateway, which simplifies the routing between Amazon Virtual Private Clouds (Amazon VPCs) and on-premises networks by acting as a hub that controls traffic routing among all connected spokes.

For customers with particularly demanding network traffic, the option to deploy on FPGA accelerated instances will be available with Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) F1.

“We consistently hear from customers that they face significant operational hurdles with today’s firewall-based approaches to cloud network security,” says Trend Micro A/NZ technical director Mick McCluney.

“They introduce operational complexity, are disruptive to deploy and are inefficient, due in large part to complex networking requirements that are cumbersome in the cloud.

“Trend Micro’s approach removes these operational challenges.”

Trend Micro Cloud Network Protection, available today, will be listed on AWS Marketplace.

It aims to leverage the power of Trend Micro Research, including the Zero Day Initiative (ZDI) bug bounty program, to spot advanced targeted attacks, vulnerabilities and exploits, and easily integrates with other security tools.

Trend Micro’s solutions for consumers, businesses, and governments provide layered security for data centers, cloud environments, networks, and endpoints.

Its products share threat intelligence and provide a connected threat defence with centralised visibility and control, enabling better, faster protection.

Trend Micro has more than 6,000 employees in over 50 countries.
