Trend Micro | April 26, 2022
Trend Micro Incorporated , a global cybersecurity leader, announced the launch of Trend Micro One, a unified cybersecurity platform with a growing list of ecosystem technology partners that enables customers to better understand, communicate, and lower their cyber risk.
Organizations are battling on all fronts to face mounting cyber risks from their complex and growing attack surface with stretched teams and siloed security products. The unified security platform approach delivers a continuous lifecycle of risk and threat assessment with attack surface discovery, cyber risk analysis, and threat mitigation and response.
Inaugural partners of the Trend Micro One technology ecosystem include: Bit Discovery, Google Cloud, Microsoft, Okta, Palo Alto Networks, ServiceNow, Slack, Qualys, Rapid7, Splunk, and Tenable.
"We are so proud that ecosystem partners value integrating into our platform. Collectively we help enterprises fight the bad guys known as cybercriminals. Alone we are strong, but together our industry is unstoppable in helping customers eliminate security gaps anywhere, identify internal and external enterprise assets, and take critical steps to mitigate them.
Kevin Simzer, COO of Trend Micro
According to Gartner®, "vendors are increasingly acquiring or developing these adjacent technologies and integrating them into a single platform. The benefits are best realized when this integration minimizes consoles and configuration planes and reuses components (e.g., endpoint agents) and information.1"
"We all know that digital transformation is table stakes for the post-pandemic enterprise. But this comes with additional risks: a bigger target for threat actors to aim at and more visibility and security coverage gaps for them to hide in," said Jeremiah Grossman, CEO of Bit Discovery. "Trend Micro's approach stands out from the crowd — notably with its blend of multiple sources of asset and risk visibility, including external attack surface visibility powered by Bit Discovery. Trend Micro's platform helps customers quickly get a prioritized and comprehensive understanding of their attack surface."
As a unified platform, Trend Micro One delivers powerful risk assessment capabilities, but the ecosystem partners extend that to make it the most complete in the industry. Joint customers benefit from truly connected visibility, better detection and response capabilities, and comprehensive protection across security layers and systems.
Trend Micro One supports this approach by enabling customers to:
Discover the attack surface: Identify, monitor, and profile cyber assets in customers' environments.
Understand and continuously assess risk: Analyze risk exposure, the status of vulnerabilities, the configuration of security controls, and types of threat activity.
Effectively mitigate risk: Ensure the right preventative controls and take swift action to mitigate risk and remediate attacks across the enterprise by leveraging Trend Micro's threat and risk intelligence.

Palo Alto Networks | April 22, 2022
Palo Alto Networks , the global cybersecurity leader, today announced that its IoT Security solution has achieved Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) Moderate Authorization. The company's sponsoring agency is the United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
U.S. federal agencies are increasingly focused on adopting a Zero Trust architecture to ensure their IoT devices meet federal security compliance requirements. With this authorization, Palo Alto Networks IoT Security can help federal agencies protect their unmanaged IoT devices with ML-powered visibility, threat prevention and Zero Trust enforcement with a single platform.
"As cyberattacks become more frequent and sophisticated, the IoT Security solution helps automate Zero Trust security with quick, accurate discovery and best-in-class protection. We are committed to protecting the U.S. government and its federal agencies from all security threats with reliable solutions."
Dana Barnes, senior vice president of Public Sector, Palo Alto Networks
Digital transformation across all industries is driving massive growth in the use of IoT devices. Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 IoT Threat Report found that 30% of all devices on enterprise networks fall in the IoT category.
Unfortunately, IoT devices and their inherent vulnerabilities are often overlooked, which can lead to enterprise-wide exposure to unseen cyber risk. Federal officials have adopted several provisions in recent years to increase overall protection and awareness of IoT device security vulnerabilities, including the Internet of Things Cybersecurity Improvement Act and the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) IoT Device Cybersecurity Guidance for the Federal Government.
The IoT Security solution's Moderate Authorization extends the offerings Palo Alto Networks provides its U.S. government customers. This authorization adds to the portfolio of other authorized products already being deployed today.
The IoT Security solution helps U.S. agencies leverage their current Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFWs) to secure all unmanaged IoT devices at scale. Some of the key benefits for government agencies include:
Quick and accurate discovery and insights into all devices, even those never seen before
Best-in-class protection with behavior analysis to detect risk, compliance, and anomalous activity, and prevention of known and unknown threats
Automated Zero Trust security with automated discovery, least-privileged access policies, and 1-click enforcement
Workflow automation across existing IT and security solutions and simplified agentless and sensorless deployment
