As a global leader in cloud security, Trend Micro develops Internet content security and threat management solutions that make the world safe for businesses and consumers to exchange digital information. With over 20 years of experience, Trend Micro is recognized as the market leader in server security for delivering top-ranked client, server, and cloud-based data protection solutions that stop threats faster and protect data in physical, virtualized, and cloud environments.
Trend Micro™ SecureCloud provides security for Public Cloud, Private Cloud and Hybrid clouds. Data is encrypted on a virtual machine before being written to any SCSI, iSCSI, NFS or IDE storage device and decrypted when read back. The symmetric encryption keys are managed by the SecureCloud Key Manager—which is available as SaaS hosted by Trend Micro or can be installed within your own datacenter.
SecureCloud's policy-based key management solution validates the identity and integrity of virtual machines requesting access to data. This system ensures encryption keys are released only into safe environments and gives data owners’ confidence that information remains secure. This key release process is achieved through numerous rules, such as checking network services running within the virtual machine; which helps SecureCloud assess the cloud environment’s identity and integrity. Some of the benefits include:
- Enables business to leverage cloud economics while enforcing data protection.
- Allows control of data to reside with enterprise no matter where it’s located.
- Obviates need to rely on proprietary cloud vendor security because security is controlled by the enterprise (no vendor lock-in).
- Gives additional information security by validating virtual servers.
- Enables multi-cloud usage since security follows the data.
Trend Micro and RightScale partnered to provide customers with an intuitive and automated way to protect sensitive data in the cloud. The Trend Micro RightScript takes AWS credentials and device configuration information as input and then performs provisioning of storage devices. Through the use of the published Trend Micro RightScripts, customers are able to encrypt sensitive data running in a multi-cloud environment.
