Trend Micro announces security products for Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes and Gmail

10 Apr 2019

Cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro has announced enhancements to it'is Deep Security and Cloud App Security products designed to extend protection to virtual machines on the Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes platform protection, container image scanning integration with the Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) and Gmail on the G Suite.

Trend Micro A/NZ managing director Ashley Watkins says, “An increasing number of businesses are investing in Google Cloud and Kubernetes to drive efficiencies and business agility.

“It is critical for enterprises to remember that they share in the responsibility of what they put in the cloud.

“Customers count on us to ease the implementation and automation of security earlier in the development process and to ensure the safe migration between the data centre, hybrid cloud and even multi-cloud environments.”

To address this need, Trend Micro has created a Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Connector that enables automated discovery, visibility and protection of GCP virtual machine instances.

This eases the management by giving an instant view of all GCP workloads while also showing any virtual machines that might have been deployed outside of security purview or under shadow IT projects.

This feature of Trend Micro Deep Security has the ability to automatically deploy policy via automated workflows, combat advanced malware, enhance network and system security and capture workload telemetry for threat investigations.

Container users can benefit from Kubernetes platform protection at runtime with Deep Security intrusion prevention (IPS) rules, integrity monitoring and log inspection.

Trend Micro’s IPS approach allows users to inspect both east-west and north-south traffic between containers and platform layers like Kubernetes.

Additionally, Trend Micro’s Deep Security provides container image scanning in the build pipeline for vulnerabilities, malware, embedded secrets/ keys and compliance checks.

Deployed as a Kubernetes Helm Chart, this container image scanning simplifies security deployment on popular services like Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) and Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS).

Research continues to show that email remains one of the most popular threat vectors which drove Trend Micro to expand its popular Cloud App Security platform to support Gmail users within G Suite.

Organisations are increasingly looking to cloud email services to boost productivity and agility.
