DevOps teams gain continuous cloud security visibility and cloud security posture management


KONG, CHINA – Media OutReach – 23 July
2020 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), the global
leader in cloud security, today announced its Trend Micro Cloud One™ —
Conformity offering is now available to Azure customers, helping global organizations
tackle misconfigurations, compliance challenges and cyber-risks in the cloud.


The company also achieved the CIS Microsoft Azure Foundation Security Benchmark. This
certifies the Conformity product has built-in rules to check for more than 100
best practices in the CIS framework.

security of the cloud is a cloud
providers’ responsibility, but security in
the cloud falls to the customer, which is where we fit,” said Wendy Moore, vice
president of product marketing for Trend Micro. “Our Cloud One platform integrates closely with Microsoft Azure
allowing DevOps to easily deploy against any hybrid cloud environment during
their migration to the cloud.”


In-house skills are often overloaded with the
challenge of managing hybrid cloud complexities. The proliferation of shadow IT
projects in the enterprise also means IT functions are often the last to know
if cloud accounts have been created by business units without adequate care and
attention paid to compliance, security and governance controls.


Conformity tackles these challenges by providing
powerful visibility and control of Azure environments. Its continuous cloud
security and compliance posture management capabilities alert customers to the
risk status and provide easy-to-action remediation recommendations. These can
help prevent common mistakes such as unauthorized database access and public
access to Blob storage accounts.


By implementing the Conformity API into a CI/CD
pipeline and existing workflows, DevOps teams can
identify potential risk in their cloud infrastructure before they are deployed
to live environments for
automated, proactive prevention of vulnerabilities.


Trend Micro
Cloud One — Conformity identifies around 230 million cloud misconfigurations
for its global Azure and AWS customers every single day.


Trend Micro’s experience securing
multi-cloud environments is a key differentiator to many organizations. “Trend
Micro is one of just a few vendors that provides the same full security and
monitoring capabilities across both Microsoft Azure and AWS,” said Mario Mendoza, Team Lead, Cyber Security
Architecture and Engagement at Blackbaud. “Blackbaud adheres to a DevOps
approach internally, so any shift in security vendors requires buy-in from the
DevOps teams. The fact that Trend Micro is able to protect Blackbaud’s hybrid
cloud environment without slowing down its DevOps teams was critical in our
decision for Trend Micro.”


Micro helps Blackbaud maintain constant vigilance for security and monitoring
across its cloud operations. Trend Micro is always on the cutting edge of new
threats, and they include us in those efforts. As a market leader, that’s what
we look for in partners,” said Mendoza.
