Driving success for Trend Micro’s MSP business

by Ritesh Pau

They say “good things come to those who wait”. That’s certainly my experience with Trend Micro. The journey actually started over a year-and-a-half ago following a conversation with Channel Director, James Munroe. Unfortunately, the right role didn’t exist back then. 

But 18 months—and a brief stint at HPE—later, Trend Micro kick-started the discussions again and I was delighted to become part of the team as an MSP manager.

Trend Micro continues to support legacy Microsoft platforms at no extra cost

by Laura Todd

Managing cyber-risk across multiple IT environments can be a major challenge. Without the right protection, legacy software in particular can become more exposed to threats. Yet tight budgets leave little wriggle room for IT security decision makers. So what happens if your incumbent security supplier decides to start charging extra to support these end-of-life platforms? Do you downgrade to a cheaper tool offering less protection? Or even consider refreshing the entire endpoint estate to a new operating system?

Fortunately, with Trend Micro, CISOs must make no such trade-offs. Unlike some providers, you get industry leading protection for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows SBS 2011 at no extra cost.

Building unified protection and control for one of England’s largest housing associations

by Alex Ekuza

Non-profits are facing surging levels of cybercrime. A third of charities in the UK claimed they’ve suffered an attack during the pandemic, losing over £3.5 million in the process. However, Together Housing is a rarity in the sector — an organisation that has prioritised cybersecurity in recent years to keep its customers and IT systems safe from threats. 

By consolidating on Trend Micro for endpoint, server, network and cloud app security, the non-profit has built a formidable connected threat defence which benefits employees, customers and the IT team.

Open to innovation

System Engineer Lee Richardson explains that Together Housing has always been open to trialling cutting edge technology from Trend Micro. 

“We are led by Trend on what products are coming out, and if we like what they’re doing we go for it,” Lee says.

This philosophy has led the housing association to installing Apex One for comprehensive endpoint and server protection across its 1,500 users, as well as Deep Discovery Inspector for network security, Cloud App Security (CAS) for additional Microsoft 365 protection, and Trend Micro Vision One for XDR.

Visibility and control

Trend Micro Vision One is the glue that holds it all together, correlating threat data from every layer for optimised threat detection and response. Together Housing’s faith in Trend Micro has been repaid many times over. The firm was fast to respond to the pandemic thanks to Apex One’s SaaS capabilities and its own virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). And CAS has helped keep users of OneDrive, SharePoint and other Microsoft 365 apps safe and productive during the crisis.

Most importantly for Lee and his team, consolidating on Trend Micro has reduced management headaches and streamlined workflows.

“Logging-in to diff services to check alerts and notifications can be quite cumbersome,” Lee says. “With Trend Micro it’s all there in one window, which is a lot more intuitive. It just makes life much easier.”
