Trend Micro, global leader in cyber security solutions with its new Virtual Patching, aims to help its customers shield vulnerabilities in crucial systems until a patch is available and its deployed in place of a future patch, and to protect systems that are unpatchable. The new patching technique addresses the vulnerability risks and patch management that are not met by the traditional solutions.
Nilesh Jain, Vice President- South East Asia & India, Trend Micro, says, “Advanced cyberattacks including ransomware such as SamSam, WannaCry, Petya, Locky and many others, have made customers aware of the importance of security more than ever. Patching is critical for defending against attacks that exploit security flaws and when organizations can’t patch directly, using a virtual patch can help mitigate the risk. Virtual Patching, the unique feature of Trend Micro Deep Security, is advanced in shielding from vulnerabilities without leading to do emergency patching and safeguarding of networks and endpoints from threats.”
Trend Micro Deep Security provides a smart blend of cross-generational threat defense techniques for protecting servers from unknown threats. It uses a dedicated, security hardened virtual appliance that integrates with the VMware vShield APIs to provide agentless security. Similarly, Trend Micro vulnerability Protection provides earlier, stronger endpoint protection by supplementing desktop anti-malware and threat security with proactive virtual patching. It is very scalable with options for multiple servers to ensure endpoint deployment for even the largest of organizations.
LIC Mutual Fund, Lupin Pharma, CIBIL are some of the companies who have deployed the Virtual Patching solution from Trend Micro. Commenting on the new implementation, Prashant Thakkar, CTO & Head of Strategy, LIC Mutual Fund, says, “With ever-growing security risks and a complex IT environment, it was very important to find a flexible, customizable, easy-to-manage solution suitable for our business. Partnering with Trend Micro led to a harmonious collaboration that helped us combat the challenges of securing and protecting our data and network from potential security risks and cyber threats.”
