Trend Micro’s telecom security solution certified as VMware-ready

23 Jan 2019

Cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro has announced that its telecom IoT security solution, Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS), has been certified as VMware Ready. This designation verifies the compatibility of the Trend Micro solution to secure modern networks that are built to support 5G and Internet of Things (IoT). "We are pleased that Trend Micro qualifies for the VMware Ready logo, signifying to customers that it has met specific VMware interoperability standards and works effectively with VMware cloud infrastructure," says VMware technology alliance partner program director Kristen Edwards.  "This signifies to customers that the Trend Micro solution can be deployed in production environments with confidence and can speed time to value within customer environments." Certification by VMware allows communications service providers who prefer or have already adopted VMware vCloud NFV to add network security services from Trend Micro.  Those who are interested in the Trend Micro solution but haven't virtualised their networks yet will find it much easier to set up an evaluation environment with VMware vCloud NFV. "We are pleased to be certified VMware Ready, as it signals to telecom carriers, service and cloud providers that there is an answer to concerns of protecting expanded architectures required to support 5G," says Trend Micro NFV business development director Hideyuki Tsugane.  "Leading telcos can now use the latest virtual network-ready solution from Trend Micro to provide security and reliability." Telecom providers are expected to offer highly reliable networks that can support the extra load from an increasing volume of corporate and consumer smart devices, while also keeping their business and home users safe.  The Trend Micro VNFS contains a fully virtualised set of network functions that sits on the carrier network, applying URL filtering, application control, intrusion prevention and IoT reputation services.  It leverages Trend Micro's global threat intelligence platform, the Smart Protection Network which blocks 65 billion threats per year for customers. The Trend Micro solution supports next-gen NFV networks by enabling security resources to be dynamically allocated and configured for different servic|es as they scale up and down to meet varied traffic demands.  It utilises the data plane development kit for high-speed packet processing, ensuring outstanding performance.
