Minimize Cybersecurity Risk and Relieve Overstretched Security Teams with Trend Micro Support and Service Bundles

Trend Micro Incorporated | September 07, 2021

Trend Micro Incorporated a global cybersecurity leader, today announced the launch of Trend Micro Service One, consolidating its managed services to optimize enterprise threat management. The new services bundles, which can include premium support, an early warning service, Managed XDR and incident response, help customers prevent, detect and respond to cyber threats faster by supplementing internal resources.

The prevalence of cybersecurity threats and the dynamic threat landscape leave businesses vulnerable and put security experts in high demand to triage and investigate incidents.

According to Aaron Sherrill, Senior Research Analyst at 451 Research, part of S&P Global Market Intelligence[1], "Security teams are struggling to understand the right approach or strategy to employ to detect and respond to advanced threats. While most organizations have a plethora of security tools at their disposal, they are creating enormous amounts of data that must be explored and inspected. It is becoming increasingly difficult to distinguish between the noise and indicators of serious threats – especially complex, distributed threats that operate low and slow to avoid detection."

Over half of Security Operations Center (SOC) teams feel overwhelmed by alerts and aren't confident in their abilities to prioritize or respond to these alerts, according to a recent Trend Micro survey. Outsourcing security management significantly lightens the workloads and saves businesses from catastrophic breaches. 

"The weight of the world was felt by our security team as we work tirelessly to enable organization success in the digital transformation journey," said Andre Castleberry, cybersecurity manager of Hall County, Georgia. "Trend Micro's managed services have empowered our small team to manage risk and compliance at scale. Having threat experts support day-to-day detection and response for our security platform allows our employees to focus resources on serving our constituents."

Trend Micro's expert threat analysis and monitoring via its different services helps fortify business risk management plans. Managed threat detection and response across a complete security platform takes the burden of threat data triage off of stretched security teams, allowing internal resources to focus on business enablement.

"Security teams are stretched to the max while the business risk of cybersecurity continues to increase," said Wendy Moore, vice-president of product marketing for Trend Micro. "We want to help make our customers' lives easier while also minimizing their risk of attack. Providing better insight across the entire security platform, from product enablement, to risk monitoring and mitigation, to attack detection and response is one way we're doing that. Our proactive services that cross the threat lifecycle enables more advanced visibility and protection, helping businesses manage threats most effectively."

Enterprise security requires streamlined operations with a broader perspective, including better context to hunt, detect and contain threats to best manage the business risk introduced by cyber threats. Trend Micro's powerful cybersecurity platform detects malicious activities, with threat intelligence from various sources, helping catch threats faster and improve investigations, analysis, and response times, while eliminating pressure from the SOC team so they can focus on high value activities.

Leveraging Trend Micro's services adds business value by combining premium customer support with such options as:

Early Warning Service scans for early indicators of compromise and then alert customers of potential threats before they cause system harm.
Incident Response provides expert resources in case of a critical, active attack.
Managed Detection and Response monitors alerts and logs across the entire environment, identifying and investigating events and providing ongoing threat expertise.
Trend Micro is committed to supporting customers through their digital transformation journey, supporting internal resources, so customers get the most out of their security platform.

Wiz Launches Free Cloud Framework to Drive Community-Backed Security

Wiz | December 15, 2022

Wiz, the leading cloud security platform that rapidly enables customers to find and remove critical cloud risks, today announced its newest project, The PEACH framework, a tenant isolation framework for cloud applications. This framework will enable industry-wide collaboration and provide cloud customers and cloud application developers with the necessary guidance to build cloud services securely and prevent critical risks in the implementation process. "Over the past year and a half, Wiz researchers and other members of the cloud security community discovered several cross-tenant vulnerabilities in various multi-tenant cloud applications. "Although these issues have been reported extensively and were dealt with appropriately by the relevant vendors, we've seen little public discussion on how to mitigate such vulnerabilities across the entire industry. This is where we see an opportunity to strengthen the collaboration between members of the security community." Wiz CEO Assaf Rappaport Beyond offering a guideline for organizations, PEACH is a starting point for empowering security teams to work together to establish standard transparency and common language when it comes to mitigating cloud threats. Serving as a step-by-step framework for modeling and improving SaaS and PaaS tenant isolation, PEACH manages the attack surface exposed by user interfaces and provides a clear standard for transparency on tenant isolation assurance. Wiz developed the following parameters based on lessons learned to address the rising cross-tenant vulnerabilities, lack of a standard for transparency, and missing common langue among vendors: Privilege hardening – ensure tenants and hosts have minimal permissions in the service environment. Encryption hardening – confirm the data belonging to each tenant is encrypted with a unique key, regardless of where the information is stored. Authentication hardening – validate that communication between each tenant and the control plane use authentication with a validated key unique to each tenant. Connectivity hardening – establish that all inter-host connectivity is blocked by default unless explicitly approved by the tenants involved. Hygiene – verify that unnecessary secrets, software and logs scattered throughout the environment are purged to avoid leaving clues or enabling quick wins for malicious actors. The second part of the security review process consists of remediation steps to manage the risk of cross-tenant vulnerabilities and improve isolation as necessary. These include reducing interface complexity, enhancing tenant separation, and increasing interface duplication -- all while accounting for operational context such as budget constraints, compliance requirements, and expected use-case characteristics of the service. This framework was reviewed and collaborated on with cloud security industry experts from AWS, Google, IBM, Netflix and Cisco. Instead of commercializing PEACH though, Wiz will be offering the framework for free. About Wiz Wiz secures everything organizations build and run in the cloud. Founded in 2020, Wiz is the fastest-growing software company in the world, scaling from $1M to $100M ARR in 18 months. Wiz enables hundreds of organizations worldwide, including 30 percent of the Fortune 100, to rapidly identify and remove critical risks in cloud environments.
