Cybersecurity and defense company Trend Micro recently launched its local managed XDR data center service in India to solve data sovereignty issue. The company announced the news at its own security event named CLOUDSEC India 2019, which gathered more than 750 business and technology leaders from the cybersecurity industry. Trend Micro stated that its XDR offers 24/7 service for organizations that want additional detection and response support.
Based out in Japan, Trend Micro is a major player in the information and network security landscape. Founded in 1988, the company holds a variety of cybersecurity merchandise for multiple operating systems, including threat detection, and antivirus products. Hybrid cloud security, network defense, user protection, and small business products are at the core of its product line.
In India, Trend Micro holds around 1,000 large enterprise customers, which provides security across the hybrid cloud, network, and endpoints. The company also has its presence across the government, BFSI, IT/ITeS, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, and telecom sectors.
“Today, data is collected and analyzed in silos, however, what enterprises need is to collect and analyze data as a whole and be able to generate high-priority, actionable intelligence with context. To address this challenge, we recently launched our XDR solution that will be a gamechanger for the industry. Managed XDR is a great service for customers who have detection and response tools, but don’t have the required resources or skillsets to maximize them,” said Nilesh Jain, Vice President, Southeast Asia and India, Trend Micro.
“The engagement around cybersecurity is no longer limited to CISOs and CIOs. At Trend Micro, we have taken the engagement to the next level by speaking to the application team and the operations team. We are also looking at initiatives like community day to deepen our interactions with the DevOps professionals. Our top three priorities for India this year are to – first, focus on hybrid cloud customers who are looking to grow aggressively; second, build on existing customers including those who are sitting on the fence evaluating prospective options; and, finally, to recruit and grow our partner ecosystem,” Jain added.
Recently, Trend Micro launched its new headquarters in Singapore for Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa (AMEA) operations. The facility will be a part of Trend Micro’s new managed detection and response (MDR) security operations center across North America, Europe, and Southeast Asia.
Trend Micro stated its new center comprises an executive briefing area to host cybersecurity sessions for customers and government officials in the AMEA region. The company is also offering Certification Programs in IT Security to train the security officials in Singapore.
