Security software vendor Trend Micro has made its Deep Security cloud and data center platform available on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace to help customers protect their Windows applications and services.

The addition of Deep Security to the Azure Marketplace is expected to give Microsoft customers an easy way to set up and deploy security  for their cloud workloads and improve existing security options within Azure, according to the announcement.

“Providing Deep Security via the Azure Marketplace allows organizations using Azure to acquire cloud workload security as easily as they acquire the cloud infrastructure resources which require protection,” said Bill McGee, senior vice president of cloud and data center security at Trend Micro, in a statement. “It extends the inherent security provided by Azure, with protection that allows organizations to better meet their shared security-enhanced responsibilities, including compliance requirements such as PCI and HIPPA.”

In case you aren’t already familiar, Trend Micro Deep Security is the company’s flagship cloud and data center protection platform for physical, virtual and cloud servers, according to the company. Deep Security allows users to virtually patch software for vulnerabilities and automatically recognizes new virtual machines at launch, with customizable policy templates and a host of other features to protect enterprise assets.

Trend Micro’s Vice President of Strategy and Business Development Partha Panda said Deep Security integration with the Azure Marketplace will provide customers with a much more convenient way to tack security onto their existing workloads without needing to purchase it separately.

“It’s all about how can we make it seamless for customers and partners to buy it [Deep Security] from one source,” said Panda, in an interview with Talkin’ Cloud. “The other part that excites me about the Azure Marketplace integration is it not only provides an opportunity for partners to buy directly from the marketplace, but it also automatically provisions an account in Deep Security as a Service.”

Trend Micro is one of several companies to integrate their services into the Azure Marketplace in the past several weeks, including SnapCLOUD for Azure from Sphere3D (ANY), a virtualization and data management solution provider. Masergy Communications also provided access to the Azure platform through its own Cloud Marketplace in an effort to provide customers with reliable access to Azure-hosted applications.
