Trend Micro recently held its annual Channel Partner Day event in Gangtok, Sikkim. At the event, Trend Micro officially announced the availability of managed detection and response (MDR) services in India, an outsourced service to enterprises looking to deepen their threat-hunting and investigation capabilities. Addressing the shortage of cybersecurity professionals in the country, MDR augments a company’s existing security team by providing external expertise and resources to proactively hunt for stealthy threats in an IT environment. By uncovering and stopping such threats early, organizations can potentially avert data breaches.
Among Trend Micro’s enterprise customers in India, 33 out of the 40 large banks and seven of the top energy companies rely on its connected threat defense solutions. The top five IT and IT-enabled services (ITES) companies are using its hybrid cloud security solutions, and all the three private telcos have implemented its network security and hosted email security solutions.
One of the highlights of the event was a discussion around Trend Micro’s certification program in IT security (CPITS) - a fully-sponsored, two-month certificate-granting upskilling program recently launched at the company’s state-of-the-art infrastructure training facility in Bangalore. The program equips the computer science and engineering graduates with practical, hands-on knowledge and skills, helping them take advantage of systems engineering job opportunities in the IT security industry and with Trend Micro.
Trend Micro has been identified as an endpoint protection leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Endpoint Protection Platforms since 2002 and is a leader in the IDC MarketScape. Its Deep Discovery solution for network security has also been recognized by the NSS Labs as the “most effective recommended breach detection system” for two consecutive years....
