Trend Micro Regains Top position in Server Security Market Share

Trend Micro, Inc is ranked no. 1 for corporate endpoint server security according to a recent report by IDC. The “Worldwide Endpoint Security 2010 to 2015 Forecast”, market analysis report identifies server security as a new sub-segment of the endpoint security market.

Analyst firm IDC recently released its annual endpoint security report, Worldwide Endpoint Security 2011-2015 and 2010 Vendor Shares. In that report, server security was highlighted as a unique subcategory of endpoint security. And Trend Micro is the Leader in Server Security market share once again!

With more endpoints being mobile (which now includes virtual servers residing at remote datacenters), and thus out of the direct control of the enterprise, endpoint security requirements increase. The endpoint cannot rely solely on the network security infrastructure because many times the endpoint will be connecting to the Internet via an un-trusted network connection. The information that can be acquired from endpoints, including clients and servers, has kept corporations buying endpoint security at a record pace. In 2010, the endpoint security market was $7.2 billion. IDC expects this market to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.1% from 2010 to 2015, reaching total revenue of $10.6 billion in 2015.

Trend Micro’s Smart Protection Network allows threats to be identified and eliminated in the cloud before they arrive at the endpoint, thus reducing the reliance on antimalware signatures at the endpoint level. For server-specific security, the application control and virtual patching functions within Deep Security ensure that attacks can't gain a foothold on the server through vulnerability. Deep Security is also provided as a server security platform with all technologies integrated into a single agent to offer additional performance and management benefits.
