Trend Micro is offering its Deep Security product through Microsoft’s Azure marketplace after the security vendor joined Microsoft’s Enterprise Cloud Alliance.

Trend Micro has also launched Cloud App Security Solution for Microsoft Office 365, providing advanced threat protection controls for Office 365. The offering provides document exploit detection and sandbox malware analysis to detect zero-day malware and malicious code hidden in PDF or Office documents and improves visibility into compliance with data loss prevention.

Partha Panda, Trend Micro vice president of global channel and strategic alliance, says: “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.

“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 maximise ROI and utilise the full benefits of the Microsoft cloud platform.”

Nicole Herskowitz, Microsoft Azure senior director of product marketing, says security is an utmost priority for organisations relying on the cloud.

“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.”

The new alliance continues a long-standing partnership for the two companies which have worked together for more than 20 years.
