VMworld Europe: Time to Simplify Cloud Complexity Through Unified Security

by Simon Young

Cloud is at the heart of any organisation’s digital transformation efforts today, with new DevOps practices driving innovation. But although these efforts promise faster time-to-market and greater agility, the truth is that with greater adoption comes potentially greater complexity and the danger of cloud siloes. According to the latest IDC stats out this week, 90% of organisations will look to migrate to hybrid and multi-cloud environments over the next six years. In this fracturing world, it’s important to ensure you have unified security which works across all major platforms.

That’s part of the message Trend Micro will be bringing to VMworld Europe next week. Continue reading

Securing Cloud Workloads: Making DevSecOps a Reality at VMworld Europe

by Bharat Mistry

You might have noticed new official ONS figures claiming a 30% drop in cybercrime in the UK over the past year. But don’t be misled by the headline stats: the truth is that threats, especially against organisations, are on the rise. Trend Micro blocked over 20.4 billion of them in the first half of the year alone. The risks are especially pronounced during the app development lifecycle when the focus can sometimes fall too heavily on time-to-market, at the expense of security. That’s why cloud workload security is one of the top two IT budget priorities for 2019, according to a new study.

As organisations increasingly look to DevOps to drive innovation and growth, the need to seamlessly integrate security controls pre-deployment and at runtime becomes more urgent. Join us at VMworld Europe next month to find out how Trend Micro is helping global organisations manage these challenges. Continue reading

As Cybercrime Prosecutions Fall Again, CLOUDSEC Offers Food for Thought

by Bharat Mistry

Policing the Wild West of the internet has never been an easy job, but as cyber-criminals get more organised and better equipped thanks to the dark web economy, it has become even harder. That’s especially true in the UK where austerity measures have had a major impact on police budgets. So it might not come as a surprise that new figures show a decline in the number of cybercrime prosecutions in the country, the second year in a row.

At Trend Micro’s CLOUDSEC conference next month, experts from law enforcement and industry will come together to discuss what can be done. As we’ve shown in the past, public-private partnerships can produce some impressive results. Continue reading
