Trend Micro to launch local XDR data lake

Cybersecurity leader responds to data sovereignty issuesin India

Razor-sharp focus on banking, manufacturing and government sectors as the major segments in 2021

BANGALORE, Nov 27 (BNC Network) – Cybersecurity leader Trend Micro will launch its local XDR data lake next month in India for key partners and SOC solution providers.

Providing for multi-layered detection and response in a single platform, XDR collects and correlates activity data for one or more vectors—endpoints, email, servers, cloud workloads, and networks, enabling a level of detection and investigation that is difficult to achieve with SIEM or individual point solutions.

At the three-day CLOUDSEC 2020, one of the industry's biggest cybersecurity events hosted by Trend Micro, the company said it will continue to have a razor-sharp focus on banking, manufacturing and government sectors as the major segments for the coming year.

Nilesh Jain, Vice President, Southeast Asia and India, Trend Micro said, “India is a growing and an important market for us. As the cybersecurity industry and the technology landscape evolves, we see ourselves transitioning to become a DevOps company, emphasising more on product development to drive growth.”

CLOUDSEC 2020 attracted more than 100 business and technology leaders from industry-defining companies speaking at the virtual event this year. At the three-day event that concluded yesterday, the panelists and experts emphasized on how a fine balance between SecOps, DevOps and CloudOps should be met, for organizations to achieve success in their digital transformation journey. A model, where CloudOps and SecOps teams can talk about doing touchless or SOC-less security that is automation all the way through the workflow.

With digitalisation and the ongoing pandemic, Indian enterprises are rapidly moving to cloud and adopting next generation technologies and SaaS based solutions. There is a growing concern on data sovereignty issues, and at Trend Micro we consider this as a big priority and hence have decided to invest in our local data lake for majority of our critical projects like XDR, Apex One and Cloud App Security solutions, Jain said.

The company has increased its team size to address the cloud requirements and has launched Trend Micro Cloud One – Network Security this year that delivers simple and comprehensive protection of virtual private clouds at scale to support compliance requirements, with zero disruption to applications or traffic.

“We opine that enterprises will increasingly choose solutions from vendors who give them assurance on their confidential data not leaving geographical boundaries of the country. Also, globally we will be launching file storage security for cloud, which is a first-of-its-kind and unique offering that is going to address the requirements of customers,” Jain said.

Sharing his advice for CIOs and CISOs on choosing the right security solution and safeguarding their journey to the cloud, he said, “Analyzing technologies which provide proactive protection and detection with cross-generational technology to prevent cyberattacks should be a priority. It is also important to invest in technology with minimum of five years value in mind, for it to be effective. Being the organizations’ security gatekeepers, they need to identify a vendor who provides best-in-class solutions in all categories with the ability to integrate and work together, without compromising on the functionalities and security posture. This is where XDR comes into the picture.”
