New Trend Micro Vision OneTM Platform to empower Security Operations Teams across the Middle East and North Africa

New threat defense platform provides centralized risk visibility and prioritizes alerts for faster detection and response

February 17, 2021 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced the launch of Trend Micro Vision OneTM, an innovative breakthrough in visibility and response that empowers security teams by eliminating security alert overload from a single console. The new platform, Trend Micro Vision One, has extended detection and response (XDR) at its core and raises the bar with new capabilities to help security teams to see more and respond faster.

Organizations are struggling with siloed tools, disjointed alerts and stealthy, sophisticated threats, whether they have a Security Operations Center (SOCs) or are relying on stretched IT security teams for SOC functions. Trend Micro has helped hundreds of organizations identify and reduce cyber risk by correlating alerts across the entire IT environment, with the industry-first XDR solution launched in 2019. Now, with Trend Micro Vision One, the company is solving more complex security challenges with enhanced XDR, new risk visibility, new third-party integrations, and simplified response to threats across security layers.

“The past year has seen escalating complexity in IT stacks, with environments across the region becoming highly hybridized,” said Dr Moataz bin Ali, VP and Managing Director, Middle East and North Africa, Trend Micro. “XDR connects every aspect of infrastructure, from email and endpoints to cloud workloads and networks. And Trend Micro Vision One brings these capabilities together in a comprehensive view of the entire environment, ridding security teams of alert fatigue and providing them with a rich, contextual view that allows them to hunt down and contain threats more effectively.”

With Trend Micro Vision One, organizations can maximize efficiency by making less sophisticated security resources operate at a more expert level. The new platform allows them to faster dissect security incidents, identify critical threat patterns and complex attacks and understand their overall security posture and trends, so organizations can proactively identify and assess potential security risks.

According to Gartner, Innovation Insight for Extended Detection and Response, March 2020, “Two of the biggest challenges for all security organizations are hiring and retaining technically savvy security operations staff, and building a security operations capability that can confidently configure and maintain a defensive posture as well as provide a rapid detection and response capacity. Mainstream organizations are often overwhelmed by the intersectionality of these two problems.”

The holistic threat defense platform is true to its name, offering:

• Visibility & threat intelligence: Cross-layer detection models, along with security risk visibility supported by Trend Micro Research insights, enable enterprises to see complex attacks and particular points of security risk that siloed solutions miss. In preview, are new insights into SaaS application usage, their risk levels and trends over time.

• Purpose-built sensors: Native integrations with Trend Micro security stack across critical security layers.

• Fit with existing infrastructure: Out-of-the-box, API integrations with existing third-party solutions already in use to compliment workflows.

• Simplified management: Ability to adjust security policies and drive response actions across security layers from a single console instead of swivel chair management

In addition to the layered security from Trend Micro, customers can easily connect this new platform into other security technologies such as third-party endpoint protection platforms and SIEM and SOARs, including new integrations with Fortinet, Microsoft Sentinel and Splunk just to name a few. Early adopting customers are ready to act on the developing opportunity to integrate beyond SIEM and SOAR, with solutions like firewalls, ticketing solutions, identity and access management.
