by Ross Baker

At Trend Micro we’ve spent the past three decades and more honing our threat protection capabilities to make the connected world a more secure place. But we also know that our company can’t work in isolation to make this happen. That’s what makes industry partnerships so crucial — and they don’t come much more important than in the cloud space, where so much business-critical data is stored these days.

That’s why we’re delighted to have just been awarded 2019 Google Cloud Technology Partner of the Year for Security. It’s testament to our ongoing leadership in the space and commitment to simplicity and close integration for optimised cloud security.
