IDC names Trend Micro number one vendor for SDC security

FYI, this story is more than a year old

Trend Micro has been ranked the number one vendor in the 2018 market share for software-defined compute (SDC) workload protection, according to global analyst firm IDC.

The new independent report: Worldwide Software Defined Compute Workload Security Market Shares, 2018 revealed Trend Micro achieved a market share lead of 35.5%, almost triple its nearest competitor in 2018.

“We predicted a decade ago that organisations would need multi-layered security to protect their cloud environments and software-defined data centers,” says Trend Micro ANZ technical director Mick McCluney.

“Were glad to see our foresight and innovation being recognised by so many customers and to be ranked a #1 vendor for 2018 market share by IDC,” says McCluney.

The firm defines SDC in the report as, SDC technologies are often used in the context of public or private clouds, but can also be implemented in non-cloud environments particularly virtualised and/or containerised environments.

These products accomplish their goals by ensuring the system does not run malicious software that can compromise business applications and data on the servers.

IDC program vice president, security and trust Frank Dickson says, “For years, Trend Micro has steadily built out its SDC workload protection capabilities for virtual, public cloud and container environments, offering tight integration with AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform. Although, the future has not been written, Trend Micro is the dominant player in this market.”

Over this time, real-time security has been embedded into running applications and Trend Micro has focused on automation and security-as-code to seamlessly build protection into DevOps pipelines, including pre-runtime scanning of container images.

This development continued with the August release of XDR, which correlates data across email, network, endpoint, server and cloud workloads to identify malicious activity which might otherwise go unnoticed. Trend Micro further built on these capabilities with the acquisition of security posture management leader Cloud Conformity in October.

This month, Trend Micro launched a cloud security services program, Trend Micro Cloud One, to address customers security challenges around data center, IaaS, containers, storage and serverless architectures.

Trend Micro provides cybersecurity solutions including layered security for data centers, cloud environments, networks and endpoints to consumers, businesses, and governments. The vendor’s products work together to share threat intelligence and provide a connected threat defence with centralised visibility and control. The company has more than 6,000 employees in 50 countries.
