Trend Micro and AWS collaborate to boost cloud security

Trend Micro, which has announced integration with Amazon GuardDuty, is also one of the first companies for Enterprise Contracts for AWS Marketplace.

Enterprise Contracts for AWS Marketplace provides standardised contract terms across many software vendors to simplify and hasten procurement for the recently announced Amazon Web Services (AWS) Web Application Firewall (WAF) Managed Rules Partner Program.

With the AWS cooperation, Trend Micro expects to deliver application protection rules as part of the new AWS WAF Managed Rules Partner Program.

“AWS Marketplace is simplifying the enterprise software procurement experience to accelerate customer innovation," comments Dave McCann, VP of AWS Marketplace and Catalog Services, Amazon Web Services. "Trend Micro is a valued AWS Marketplace seller that embraces customer feedback to drive their innovation in product and business models. We are delighted to have them as one of the first companies for Enterprise Contract for AWS Marketplace.”

The Trend Micro and Amazon GuardDuty integration permits users to take advantage of the security findings from Amazon GuardDuty in order to make smarter decisions with their Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon EC2 Container Service (Amazon ECS) workloads.

Kevin Simzer, EVP at Trend Micro, said: “We are proud to provide an extra layer of protection to the innovative applications that AWS builders are deploying on the cloud. Our collaboration with AWS allows us to deliver scalable security that removes friction from procurement, devops lifecycle and day-to-day operations.”
