Why best practice security starts with improved IT-business communication

by Bharat Mistry

There’s always been friction at the heart of the relationship between IT and the business. It’s particularly acute in the sphere of cyber, where the security function has long been regarded with suspicion as a block on innovation and productivity. However, the chasm between both sides has rarely been this wide. Nor have the repercussions of miscommunication and mistrust been so potentially catastrophic. A new Trend Micro study lays bare the scale of the problem, and offers some advice on how to tackle it.

To build the security-by-design culture that modern organisations need, security must be formalised, and embedded into every business process.

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.

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.”

How Trend Micro and partners are keeping customers safe from the Kaseya ransomware attack

One of the most audacious cyber-attacks of recent years was revealed last December, when state-backed hackers infected customers of an IT software company via a malicious update. That SolarWinds attack resulted in the compromise of at least nine US government departments. At the time Trend Micro warned that this was just the tip of the iceberg. Unfortunately, we were right. Now, potentially thousands of customers of another IT management software company, Kaseya, have experienced a similar fate.

While US intelligence agencies investigate, Trend Micro and its partners’ customers remain protected via multiple layers of defence. Here’s what happened and how we’re keeping these organisations safe.
