Trend Micro leads server security market thanks to 'modern' approach
Trend Micro is the market leader in the server security market, and puts this down to its modern approach to security, according to analyst firm IDC.
The server security market was sized at over $800 million in 2014, and Trend Micro has grown its revenue share for server security to 30.3%, outpacing both the market and competitors.
This means for the sixth year in a row, the company has occupied the top spot for server security globally.
“IDC predicts the server security market to continue growing in importance, with virtualisation, cloud and hybrid deployments driving the need for a modern approach to security,” says Bill McGee, Trend Micro senior vice president cloud and data centre.
“Our leadership position in this market is a reflection of our focus on addressing hybrid cloud needs for our customers, delivering a comprehensive set of controls that can be centrally managed and automated for reduced operational impact across leading environments like VMware, Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure,” he says.
Trend Micro’s market-leading Deep Security platform protects virtual desktops and servers, cloud, and hybrid architectures against zero-day malware and other threats while minimising operational impact from resource inefficiencies and emergency patching.
“When choosing a security solution, today’s enterprises are looking for comprehensive security capabilities that address all of their critical issues,” says Chris Christiansen, IDC program vice president security products and services.
“Working with a trusted leader in server security is always a good choice - and Trend Micro has led the server security market for six years in a row,” he says.
Trend Micro offers the Deep Security platform as both software and as a service, enabling customers to align their purchasing with their data centre and cloud strategy.
Representative of Trend Micro’s commitment to the cloud market, Trend Micro Deep Security is also available on the AWS and Azure marketplaces, providing customers with additional purchasing flexibility, the company says.
