Trend Micro a Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant for
Endpoint Protection Platforms
SINGAPORE, Jan. 27, 2014 – According to Trend Micro’s recent H1 Targeted Attack Trends Report, threat actors targeting the APAC region are consistently refining their targeted attack tactics, which allows them to remain undetected. At the same time, old vulnerabilities resulting from unpatched software and applications are being exploited to the fullest. With all outlets open to attack, be it email, networks, servers and website, there is no one-size-fits-all solution that exists.
In response to the growing threat landscape, companies need to ensure that they are protected at all levels, from the server and cloud all the way down to the endpoints. With sensitive data at stake, Trend Micro Incorporated is able to help today’s enterprises navigate the murky waters of what could be the year of the targeted attack.
The company has been positioned by Gartner, Inc., over a 13-year span, in the “Leaders” quadrant of its Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms, having improved its position this year in both completeness of vision and ability to execute.
“Enterprises have to fully understand the networks they manage and implement the necessary measures to protect their environments. It is essential to have a custom defense strategy, which uses advanced threat detection technologies and shared intelligence to detect, analyse, and respond to attacks that are invisible to standard security products,” said David Siah, Country Manager, Singapore, Trend Micro.
“We have invested and improved our endpoint protection capability set, with application control, advanced malware detection, sandboxing, and incident response. At the same time, we have strengthened performance, flexibility and simplicity of deployment and management. Driven by our new Smart Protection Suites, as well as Deep Security™ and Deep Discovery™, we believe Trend Micro’s position in this report reinforces the strength and performance of our multi-layered endpoint protection solution.”
The Gartner Magic Quadrant positions technology vendors within specific markets in four distinct groups: “Leaders,” “Challengers,” “Visionaries,” and “Niche Players.” According to the report, “leaders demonstrate balanced progress and effort in all execution and vision categories. Their capabilities in advanced malware protection, data protection and/or management features raise the competitive bar for all products in the market, and they can change the course of the industry.”
Trend Micro’s endpoint solutions protect users and their information across virtually every endpoint, server (physical or virtual), as well as applications, integrating security across all layers to reduce risk, protect business reputation and help ensure compliance. In response to the increasingly complex threat landscape, Trend Micro has created a solution that features multiple layers that receive real-time global threat intelligence to detect a broad range of threats faster, avoiding impact to user productivity, and combined with breach detection investigation tools.
To further enhance and simplify deployment and ongoing management, the solution offers control and visibility to enable interconnected threat response on different operating systems, devices and applications, as well as flexible on-premise, cloud and hybrid deployment models.
