Armed and Ready for a Great H2 2018

by Matt Poulton

With the first half of the year almost unbelievably already over, Team Trend Micro UK upped sticks to Winchester last week to kick off 2H 2018. Why Winchester? Because this is where you can find the British Army Training Regiment. It was a privilege to hear from some truly inspiring individuals during our stay there, and experience some obstacles of our own to overcome as a team. It’s set us up for what we hope will be another knock-out six months. Continue reading

A New EU Cyber Force Highlights the Power of Strategic Alliances

by Bharat Mistry

Several EU members states have just resolved to develop a new cyber-response force to help mitigate the threat posed by online attacks in the future. It’s another very promising step towards a more joined approach to cybersecurity at a trans-national level. But let’s not also forget the importance of public-private partnerships here, to ensure that those governments avail themselves of the best resources and intelligence available from leading private sector cybersecurity companies.

Trend Micro a Leader in Forrester Wave Endpoint Security Report

The results are in from another independent analyst report and it’s great news for Trend Micro’s endpoint security. We achieved the highest score possible for the “strategy” category, were top ranked for “current offering” category, and among the second-highest scores in the market presence category, according to The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q2 2018[1] report. In our view, it’s yet more confirmation that we’re offering superior protection around: optimized security to decrease complexity on the endpoint and inspire confidence among our customers.

A market leader
Organizations today want to simplify their endpoint security by consolidating on vendors they trust — vendors that have the tools to tackle modern cyber-threats. That’s exactly what Trend Micro offers and what we believe the findings point to with consistent market leadership and the value of our XGen™ approach.

All in all, “Trend Micro continues to offer the most flexible and fully featured suite on the market.”1

Better than ‘next gen’
It’s especially gratifying to contrast our best-in-class capabilities with the marketing of many ‘next generation’ vendors, who try to convince customers they can only improve protection by adding their security tools to the endpoint. This is in direct contrast to what organizations actually want and need — greater simplicity and consolidation to improve performance.

In short, Trend Micro is offering enterprises just what they need today — as we believe is evidenced with our current offering score — and has the strategic vision to evolve these capabilities successfully over time.

In our view, the report is testament to the value of our XGen™ approach to security, which blends a cross-generational mix of techniques to offer the most comprehensive suite out there — way beyond what’s on offer from next generation and legacy AV vendors. Per Forrester, “Customers give the product high marks for its malware and exploit prevention efficacy, with a low negative impact on endpoint user experience.”1 This is another beneficial impact of XGen™, which allows us to apply the right protection technique at the right time to minimize user disruption.

Coming just a few months after the company named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP), we’re delighted at yet more independent confirmation of our status as a leader, which we believe demonstrates Trend Micro can deliver results over next-gen vendors and legacy AV solution vendors alike.

Data Protection Set to Loom Large Over Infosecurity Europe 2018

by Bharat Mistry

This year’s Infosecurity Europe will be the first to take place under the new data protection regime brought in by the long-awaited EU GDPR. It’s going to be interesting to see how much coverage the new law gets. I’d wager, more than you’d think, because compliance doesn’t end on 25 May — for many firms, it will only start once the reality of the new legislation hits home. As we were reminded this week by a £120,000 fine handed down to Greenwich University, the regulator will come down hard on organisations that fail on cybersecurity. Continue reading
