Trend Micro, company that specializes in providing network antivirus and internet content security software, has decided to tackle the issue of virtual machines security and in this regard it has announced Core Protection, a security software solution that secures VMware ESX/ESXi environments. For the enterprise that uses Trend Micro Core Protection for Virtual Machines this translates into maximized economic benefits without giving up on datacenter security.

With Trend Micro Core Protection for Virtual Machines you can secure active and dormant VMware virtual machines in a comprehensive and efficient manner. Layered protection is ensured by using the VMsafe APIs from VMware and by using dedicated scanning VMs coordinated with real-time agents within the VM.


General Manager for the Enterprise Business Unit with Trend Micro, Tom Miller, comments: “As virtualization revolutionizes computing, it is introducing new risks to the security of the datacenter. Trend Micro Core Protection for Virtual Machines goes further than any other product in the industry towards providing specialized content security for virtual servers, both active and dormant, in today's dynamic datacenter.”

Trend Micro Core Protection for Virtual Machines highlights:
- Security solution optimized for virtualized environments.
- Protects virtual machines (even dormant ones) against malware.
- Provides simplified security management by integrating with the VMware management infrastructure.
- It will be easy to deploy.

Senior Consultant with Compugen, one of the largest privately owned and operated IT services providers and PC systems integrators in Canada, Terence Snijtsheuvel comments: “We were interested to try out Trend Micro Core Protection for Virtual Machines since most security solutions are focused on the operating system software and this was the first solution we found for addressing the unique aspects of virtual machines. To protect virtual environments, the main challenge is to deal with the many virtual machines that are dormant at any point in time. Even when not in use, virtual machines can be attacked and are especially vulnerable since traditional scans are not being done and pattern files are not being updated while they are dormant. With Core Protection for Virtual Machines, Trend Micro aims to offer a security solution that protects active and dormant virtual machines and therefore the entire infrastructure.”

In related news, the security experts at Trend Micro are advising all parents out there to pay attention to their child’s online activities this summer. The simple truth of the matter is that with no school they will stay home and spend most of their time with activities like surfing the web (details here).
