Instant-On Cloud Security for vCloud Air

Elastic security built for vCloud Air

Organizations around the world are embracing the economic and operational benefits of cloud computing. The ability to extend internal resources and take advantage of the business benefits of vCloud Air requires organizations to address key security requirements. While cloud service providers (CSPs) like VMware provide a secure infrastructure, customers running workloads need to ensure they are meeting all security and compliance requirements.

Trend Micro’s Hybrid Cloud Security solution delivers security that is optimized for vCloud Air. It’s fast to launch and easy to deploy. And, our tight integration with VMware makes cloud security elastic, so you get the full benefit of the cloud’s agility and cost savings.

Securing vCloud Air

As security in the cloud is a shared responsibility, your CSP delivers the secure underlying infrastructure, and you are responsible for protecting your applications and data, meeting compliance regulations, and ensuring business continuity.


Trend Micro Deep Security lets vCloud users fulfill their shared security responsibilities by easily extending on-premises security to cloud workloads. By leveraging Deep Security's interoperability with VMware vCloud Director and other VMware technologies, administrators can automatically detect virtual machines (VMs) and apply context-based security policies. This provides consistent security across the data center and into the cloud.


With Deep Security, organizations benefit from advanced threat protection for their hybrid workloads. Trend Micro's Hybrid Cloud Security solution is comprised of market-leading products that deliver key capabilities including:

  • Comprehensive security capabilities: anti-malware with web reputation, host-based firewall, intrusion prevention, integrity monitoring, log inspection, and encryption
  • Vulnerability shielding with virtual patching to protect applications and servers
  • Deployment flexibility: available as software or as a service. Includes full multi-tenant capabilities for easy service operation
  • Reduced cost and complexity: highly integrated with VMware vSphere to reduce operational impact with a single platform for management of security controls and policies across multiple environments: physical, virtual, and cloud
  • Easy administration with tight integrations to management consoles from Trend Micro, VMware, and enterprise directories
  • Compliance: addresses major regulatory requirements for PCI DSS 3.0, HIPAA, NIST, SAS 70, and many others

Optimized for vCloud Air

Deep Security is optimized for VMware virtualized and cloud environments. This gives vCloud Air customers who are already using Deep Security in the data center a built-in advantage with instant-on cloud security that is optimized for vCloud Air.


Because vCloud Air is built on VMware vSphere, Trend Micro Deep Security can quickly and seamlessly extend your data center security into the cloud with the tools and processes you already have in place.
