Trend Micro Delivers the Industry’s Most Complete Security Across Cloud and Container Workloads

Micro Incorporated
; TSE:
), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced
the availability of the industry’s most complete security from a single
solution protecting across cloud and container workloads. This
leadership has been achieved through newly launched container security
capabilities added to Trend Micro Deep Security to elevate protection
across the entire DevOps lifecycle and runtime stack.

From virtual servers and data centers to public and private cloud
workloads, containers are increasingly used and demand protection.
Leading enterprises are bringing together their application development
teams, IT operations and their security team to help the business
deliver automated, secured applications to market quicker. Trend Micro
connects teams with technology tools that bake security into the process
while meeting compliance needs and reducing risk.

“While customers have been securing their containers with our technology
for a couple of years now, we are proud to significantly expand our
offering,” said Steve Quane, Executive Vice President, Network Defense
and Hybrid Cloud Security for Trend Micro. “Unlike many of the one-off
point solutions crowding the market, our offering provides automated
build-pipeline container image scanning, and extensive runtime
protection providing full visibility and control. What is strikingly
unique is our consolidated tool for container plus workload security in
every environment.”

Senior analyst and group director Doug Cahill at Enterprise Strategy
Group believed, “Developers might be surprised by the scope of this new
offering. The on-going deployment of application containers into
production environments requires that the entire build-ship-run
continuum be secured. As such, protection across the CI/CD pipeline for
container environments must include the ability to the detect
vulnerabilities, secrets, malware, and misconfigurations for early
protection at build time, while delivering critical threat protection
across on-prem and cloud host, orchestration and container layers at

The new features available now in Trend Micro’s container security
solution include:

Securing across the complete DevOps lifecycle

Within the software build-pipeline, Trend Micro has extended its
container image scanning to include pre-registry scanning, providing
earlier detection of vulnerabilities and malware over and above scanning
the trusted registry for any future threats. Deep Security will now also
scan for embedded secrets such as passwords and private keys and provide
compliance and configuration validation checks, along with image
assertion for digitally signed images.

Securing across the entire stack

At runtime of the container, Trend Micro has boosted container platform
protection across Docker and Kubernetes. Deep Security has long ensured
protection for the host and containers at runtime. This includes
intrusion prevention system (IPS) rules, integrity monitoring to detect
compromised instances of the platform, as well as log inspection.

To ensure complete protection, Trend Micro inspects all lateral and
horizontal traffic movement (east, west, north, south) between
containers and platform layers like Kubernetes and Docker.

Securing while granting full control

To increase automation and decrease manual tasks, security and
operations teams using Trend Micro can now use any command shell to
execute the application program interfaces (APIs). This additional
option ensures full control of deploying policies, automation of
monitoring, reporting and more. This completely new set of
representational state transfer APIs have been written to automate
security for application development and operations teams across the
container orchestration tools and runtime environments.

A customer currently evaluating the container security from Trend Micro
is DealerSocket’s Director of Network and Security Operations, Greg
Tatum. He said, “DevOps presents unique security challenges. The move to
DevOps requires security tools that our engineers and infrastructure
teams can easily embed, in real time as they are built.”
