Trend Micro #1 Again in Worldwide Server Security Market Share
Report positions Trend Micro as leading provider of corporate endpoint server security.
Taipei, Taiwan, Dec. 21, 2011 – Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704), a global cloud security leader, maintains its lead in the corporate endpoint server security market with an estimated 23.7 percent market share, according to IDC’s “Worldwide Endpoint Security 2011-2015 Forecast and 2010 Vendor Shares” report.
The current overall IDC estimate for the server security market is $439.2 million, with a growth rate of 6.1 percent, and expected to reach $694.4 million by 2015. IDC noted in the report that the growth of mobile devices within the workplace, and the intersection of mobile and virtualization helped fuel the need in server security. Cloud adoption is also driving the upward trajectory of the server security market as enterprises seek to secure their cloud environments.
For comprehensive server protection, Trend Micro offers Deep Security, which is designed to provide system and application security across physical, virtual, and cloud environments. Deep Security meets the challenging operational security and compliance needs of today's dynamic data center. It combines intrusion detection and prevention, web application protection, firewall, integrity monitoring, log inspection and anti-malware capabilities in a single, centrally managed enterprise software solution. Deep Security also provides the industry's first and only agentless security suite for VMware environments, enabling enterprises to attain even higher consolidation rates, faster performance, better manageability and stronger security.
“This is further validation that worldwide, enterprises are looking to Trend Micro for their server security needs,” said Eva Chen, CEO. “Today’s quickly changing infrastructure requirements make Trend Micro’s ability to provide a server security platform that spans physical, virtual and cloud environments a truly strategic advantage for enterprises large and small. Our introduction of an agentless solution in conjunction with VMware has been a huge success."
VMware vShield Endpoint is now available in APAC through Trend Micro partners for the retail price of 60 USD per VM, or 300 USD per CPU, and agentless antivirus protection for VMware virtual data center is also provided. Trend Micro is looking forward to provide a simple and convenient all-dimensional integrated virtualization security solution towards market needs.

“Server security is an important market, distinct from the endpoint and network security markets, and one that continues to grow alongside cloud computing. With more companies moving toward data center consolidation, virtualization, and cloud applications, a data-centric focus is essential. Server security needs to increase -- this is where security needs to be, and this is where Trend Micro stands out.”
Ty Smallwood, Information Services Security Officer, Medical Center of Central Georgia
“We can move forward with our VMware VDI architecture with the confidence that Trend Micro makes it easy to secure all of our endpoints. Deep Security allows us to match the right level of protection to sessions based on the applications’ compliance requirements.”
Steve Bradley, IT Director and Network Administrator, Rocklin Unified School District
“If I had to license security software for every one of our desktops, it would cost more. Add to that the server resources we save, and the resulting increase in our consolidation ratio, and you can see that Deep Security is a smart choice for school districts that want to maximize ROI for VDI.”
Levend Abay, IT security manager, Yapi Kredi Bank “It was important to choose a security solution that would help us get the best return on our investments in virtualization. Trend Micro Deep Security met all of our technical and business requirements.”
IDC’s definition of server security solutions include antimalware, desktop firewall, and host intrusion detection and prevention software that is designed to maintain the integrity of servers. These products primarily protect server operating systems to ensure that the systems do not run malicious software that can compromise the business applications and data on the servers. These products are generally more robust than desktop endpoint security and are available for a much wider set of operating systems (Windows, Unix, and Linux). This category also includes products that are designed to protect hypervisors and virtual servers.
