Trend Micro has introduced a comprehensive set of services to empower organizations in adapting their response to and improving detection capabilities of these targeted attacks at the CLOUDSEC Congress 2013 in Singapore today.
The Trend Micro Defence Services will be made available first in APAC, and to support the services roll-out in the region, Trend Micro is bringing malware forensic and analysis capabilities to Singapore with the establishment of TrendLabs in the country. The centre is the latest addition to the global network of security experts in TrendLabs providing 24x7 threat surveillance, attack prevention, and timely customized solutions delivery.
In addition, Trend Micro is partnering with e-Cop, a leading managed security service provider headquartered in Singapore, to offer Trend Micro Custom Defence Services to customers across APAC.
Given each and every targeted attack is a customized one, and that all organizations should assume they will be breached, a new level of visibility and intelligence is critical to combat advanced persistent threats (APTs) and targeted attacks across the evolving computing environment.
At the core of the Trend Micro Custom Defence solution is the Deep Discovery solution, comprising of the Deep Discovery Inspector which provides network traffic inspection, advanced threat detection and real-time analysis and reporting; and the Deep Discovery Advisor which provides open, scalable custom sandbox analysis, deep visibility into network security events, and immediate security updates—all in a unified intelligence platform.
Supporting the solution is a new comprehensive portfolio of Trend Micro Custom Defence Services, including health checks of critical systems and network traffic for malicious activities, advisory services to keep security plans up-to-date, round-the-clock remote monitoring and alert services to augment day-to-day security operations, on-site breach investigations, cleaning up of compromised systems and development of customized signatures based on malicious files collected.
As part of Trend Micro’s commitment to APAC, Trend Micro is establishing TrendLabs Singapore to extend continuous coverage to Trend Micro customers with research and services support. TrendLabs Singapore will also support the roll-out of Custom Defence Services in the region, focusing on breach investigation and incident response.
As the backbone of the Trend Micro service infrastructure, TrendLabs researchers equipped with the latest tools and technology offer deep expertise and skill sets to respond to global and local real-time developments in the threat landscape, delivering solutions to the plethora of threats that confront users and businesses on a daily basis.
With the threat landscape evolving to be more localized and targeted, the creation of in-country focused labs like TrendLabs Singapore improves SLA response time for Singapore customers, and strengthens its big data analytic capabilities. This reinforces Singapore’s position as a trusted and robust infocomm hub.
