Security Capabilities

Protects applications and data with comprehensive security

To be effective, security in your data center must be able to dynamically follow your servers, protect your unpatched servers from vulnerabilities and ransomware, whitelist software through application control, conduct real-time monitoring, and provide automatic protection. Trend Micro’s modern data center security provides the broadest set of security capabilities to do all of the above and more to keep your applications and data safe.

Key Features:

  • Anti-malware with web reputation
  • Network security, including Intrusion Prevention (IPS) and advanced host firewall
  • System security, including integrity monitoring, application control, and log inspection

Optimizes data center resources with virtualization-aware security

By utilizing hypervisor-based security for resource-intensive controls like anti-malware, we removed the need to install and manage a separate agent on every VM. Individual servers and VMs are not cluttered with signature libraries and detection engines, which leads to tremendous improvements in management, network usage, speed of scans, host-wide CPU and memory usage, input/output operations per second (IOPS), and overall storage.

VDI security is also maximized through hypervisor-based deployment, ensuring no extra footprint from a security agent impacts the virtual desktops and the underlying host.

Tight integration with VMware allows automatic provisioning of the right security policy to VMs as they are brought up - without deploying an agent. This is another key method of eliminating security gaps.

Easy administration and management

Manages security efficiently, even while transitioning to new environments

Manage security for all your deployments—across physical, virtual, and cloud—from one intuitive central dashboard. Managing security is easy with a single dashboard that allows continuous monitoring of multiple controls across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. Robust reporting and alerting help you focus on what’s important so you can quickly identify issues and respond accordingly. Easy integration with other management systems, such as HP ArcSight, IBM QRadar, and Splunk, helps incorporate security management as part of other data center operations.


Accelerates compliance

The complexity and fluidity of virtualized and cloud environments pose regulatory and internal compliance challenges. Trend Micro’s modern data center security supports audits through centralized security controls and consolidated reporting, saving time and resources.

Major compliance requirements for PCI DSS 3.1, as well as HIPAA, NIST, and SSAE16 are more easily addressed with:

  • Detailed, auditable reports that document prevented vulnerabilities, detected attacks, and policy compliance status.
  • Support for internal compliance initiatives with increased visibility of internal network activity.
  • Proven technology certified to Common Criteria EAL4+.


Trend Micro’s modern data center security is centered around Trend Micro™ Deep Security™. Already selected by thousands of global customers to protect millions of servers, Deep Security software powers Trend Micro's Hybrid Cloud Security solution, providing market-leading security capabilities for physical, virtual, and cloud servers from a single integrated platform for a connected threat defense.
