DALLAS-Trend Micro International, a global leader in security software and solutions, today announced it has joined the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance. A Gold Certified Microsoft Partner, Trend Micro has worked with Microsoft Corp. for over 20 years, and this alliance further demonstrates the commitment to deliver proven security solutions from a single security provider.

“Aligning with pioneers and innovators, such as Microsoft, reinforces our commitment to help end users protect data across their entire IT environment, from the desktop to the network and the cloud,” said Partha Panda, vice president, global channel and strategic alliance, Trend Micro. “The flexibility and reliability of the Microsoft cloud platform empowers enterprises to address growing business needs, while Trend Micro’s comprehensive solutions are specifically designed to deliver cloud security to maximize ROI and utilize the full benefits of the Microsoft cloud platform.”

As part of the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Alliance, Trend Micro delivered its Deep Security product for Microsoft Azure to help secure cloud workloads. Available from the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, Deep Security provides comprehensive, flexible security for applications and data to allow new cloud applications to be built and existing resources moved to the cloud with confidence.

In addition, Trend Micro recently launched Cloud App Security Solution for Microsoft Office 365. Cloud App Security enhances Office 365 with advanced threat protection controls. The solution extends Office 365’s built-in security with document exploit detection and sandbox malware analysis to detect zero-day malware and malicious code hidden in PDF or Office documents. Additionally, it improves visibility into compliance with data loss prevention. Cloud App Security also keeps threats from migrating over OneDrive or SharePoint Online from mobile workers or trusted partners. It works in conjunction with Office 365 using APIs without the need to install software or re-route email traffic.

“Security is an utmost priority for organizations relying on the cloud,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing, Microsoft Azure. “We look forward to offering our customers Trend Micro solutions that provide end-to-end protection from one of the foremost cloud security providers in the industry.”

Trend Micro is also a member of the Microsoft Active Protections Program, which delivers security vulnerability information from the Microsoft Security Response Center to update products and provide protections for zero-day vulnerabilities discussed in Microsoft Security Advisories.
