We’ve hit a period of relative calm in the cybersecurity space over the past few weeks with no new reports of major breaches or threats. In fact, there have actually been a few positive news announcements of late, with UK organisations spending more on threat protection and seeing some decent results.
But as the annual Infosecurity Europe event next month draws nearer, perhaps we should remind ourselves that the industry is still filled with marketing claims which don’t necessarily tell the whole story.

VMware is one of Trend Micro’s oldest and closest partners. So we boldly went where we’ve been many years before this week with a trip to VMworld Europe in Barcelona. From our much-admired Star Trek-themed stand we’ve been explaining how Deep Security is now more powerful than ever at securing physical, virtual and cloud servers, thanks to XGen.

Once considered something of an afterthought for CISOs, server security is finally getting the attention it deserves. Driven by cloud, virtual, social and mobile trends, these workhorses of the datacentre must be protected at all costs, without degrading performance. But that’s not always easy given the complexity of modern day computing environments. Years ago Trend Micro anticipated these burgeoning IT trends and developed Deep Security – our flagship datacentre product which now protects millions of servers for thousands of global customers.
So it’s fantastic to hear that analyst IDC has just reaffirmed our leadership in this market. For the sixth year in a row, we’re in top spot for server security globally. In fact, we’ve even increased our revenue share to over 30%. Continue reading →
