Trend Micro Extends its Cloud Security offerings to Dell

Trend Micro will now offer its cloud security services to Dell, to further bolster Dell’s public cloud offerings that provide customers with a cost effective and secure enterprise-class solution to drive business agility and value. Earlier this week, Dell announced a new deal with Trend Micro. Using Trend Micro SecureCloud, Dell will now be able to provide data encryption and key management security to their VMware vCloud Datacenter Service customers. Dell’s comprehensive cloud offerings also include private and hybrid clouds, as well as application integration and consulting services.

Dell’s comprehensive cloud offerings also include private and hybrid clouds, as well as application integration and consulting services. Privacy and security issues are a growing concern as more companies turn to cloud computing and virtualization. Trend Micro SecureCloud provides data protection for cloud and virtual environments using encryption with policy-based key management and unique server validation. This protection can safely and easily secure sensitive data stored with the Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, an enterprise-class Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) hosted in a secure Dell data center.

The addition of the data encryption service lends oversight and accountability to the secure Dell data center, for either multi-tenant or single-tenant cloud development. The SecureCloud encryption solution is closely integrated with the Dell Cloud with VMware vCloud Datacenter Service, but the encryption keys are managed by Trend Micro and accessible only by Dell customers. This layered approach physically and logically separates the encryption keys from the service provider, thus providing additional security and an essential separation of duties.

“Security is one of the greatest challenges facing public cloud computing and we are pleased to work with companies like Dell that know what it takes to design, build and deploy highly efficient cloud solutions, and are committed to providing the unique needs of the hyper scale computing environment,” said Amit Nath, Country Manager, India & SAARC, Trend Micro. “We are also excited that Dell has selected Trend Micro to be one of its primary security vendors for Dell Cloud Services, further proof that when it comes to cloud security innovation and leadership, Trend Micro is ahead of the game

With the rollout of SecureCloud, Dell is ensuring that its cloud customers have access to a data encryption and key management service. By employing Dell SecureWorks’ comprehensive security services, Dell is also making sure that the infrastructure of the data center is protected around the clock from cyber threats.

Dell and Trend Micro hold a strategic relationship across several product lines and business units, from OEM to cloud services.
