Cloud Compliance: Trend Micro, HyTrust Partner for Reporting
Trend Micro is bringing its server expertise to the equation, with its Deep Security offering protection across physical, hybrid and cloud infrastructures thanks to Firewall/Deep Packet Inspection, Intrusion Detection and Prevention, File Integrity Monitoring, Agentless Anti-Malware and Advanced Monitoring modules. It supports compliance standards including HIPAA, FISMA and cardholder security standard PCI DSS right out of the box.
Meanwhile, HyTrust offers similar management, protection and control functionality for virtual environments. And now, thanks to this partnership, it can offer PCI DSS reporting in conjunction with Trend Micro Deep Security, thanks to a single unified dashboard.
Narsi Kodukula, senior director of data center and cloud security solutions at Trend Micro, explained the bigger picture in a prepared statement (with links added by yours truly):
“Trend Micro Deep Security is highly integrated and optimized for VMware vSphere environments. The combination of Trend Micro and HyTrust’s solutions provide customers with the assurance that they can virtualize their applications onto VMware vSphere while maintaining ongoing visibility into critical PCI DSS compliance metrics.”
I don’t need to tell TalkinCloud readers that cloud security and compliance are hot topics for service providers. We’ll be keeping a close watch as vendors attempt to bridge the gap and help partners and customers get where they need to go.
