Trend Micro leads market share for hybrid cloud security - IDC

09 Dec 2019

Cybersecurity solutions provider Trend Micro has announced it has been named by IDC as the number one vendor in Software-Defined Compute (SDC) workload protection, according to the analyst firm's new independent report: Worldwide Software-Defined Compute Workload Security Market Shares.

The report found that Trend Micro achieved a market share lead of 35.5%, almost triple its nearest competitor in 2018.

"We predicted a decade ago that organisations would need multi-layered security to protect their cloud environments and software-defined data centres," says Trend Micro network defence and hybrid cloud security executive vice president Steve Quane.

"We're glad to see our foresight and innovation being recognised by customers and to be ranked a #1 vendor for 2018 market share by IDC."

The firm defines SDC in the report as, "SDC technologies are often used in the context of public or private clouds, but can also be implemented in non-cloud environments--particularly virtualised and/or containerised environments.

These products accomplish their goals by ensuring the system does not run malicious software that can compromise business applications and data on the servers."

"For years, Trend Micro has steadily built out its SDC workload protection capabilities for virtual, public cloud and container environments, offering tight integration with AWS, Azure and Google Cloud Platform," says IDC Frank Dickson security and trust program vice president.

"Although the future has not been written, Trend Micro is the dominant player in this market."

Over this time, real-time security has been embedded into running applications and Trend Micro has focused on automation and security-as-code to seamlessly build protection into DevOps pipelines, including pre-runtime scanning of container images.

This continued with the August release of XDR, which correlates data across email, network, endpoint, server and cloud workloads to identify malicious activity which might otherwise go unnoticed.

Trend Micro further built on these capabilities with the acquisition of security posture management leader Cloud Conformity in October.

This month, Trend Micro launched a cloud security services program, Trend Micro Cloud One, to address customers' security challenges around data centre, IaaS, containers, storage and serverless architectures.
