Trend Micro International, a global security software company headquartered in Tokyo, Japan, recently announced that its Deep Security program will be featured in a new AWS Quick Start Reference Deployment, which helps customers deploy fully functional software on the Amazon Web Service’s (AWS) cloud.
This quick start, which is part of the AWS Enterprise Accelerator for Compliance, was created to help federal government and other customers meet high impact security control requirements on AWS in compliance with the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).“Security and Privacy Controls for Federal Information Systems and Organizations” manual.
“Security and compliance are on top of mind for our customers, but both can be time-consuming and resource-intensive processes. For that reason, we’ve created the AWS Enterprise Accelerator for Compliance as a framework to help compress and simplify compliance processes,” said Teresa Carlson, vice president, worldwide public sector for Amazon Web Services, Inc.
This deployment is automated by AWS Cloud Formation templates and scripts that build an example multi-tier, Linux-based web application in the AWS cloud with comprehensive protection using Trend Micro Deep Security.
“We are so pleased APN Advanced Technology Partner, Trend Micro, has created a combined accelerator that helps organizations achieve NIST high impact security controls," said Carlson.
Deep Security is a product that adds additional server security for physical, virtual, and cloud servers. The program also provides customers with firewall support by centralizing management of server firewall policy using a bi-directional stateful firewall. It also provides log inspection capabilities, which give visibility into important security events buried in log file.
AWS Quick Start includes a recommended architecture, which provides a baseline for security-related configurations for AWS and Trend Micro Deep Security, as well as security control inheritance from AWS.
“By combining AWS controls and best practices with Trend Micro Deep Security for workload protection,” said Bill McGee, senior vice president and general manager, Hybrid Cloud Security at Trend Micro, “organizations can simplify the adoption and automation of NIST high impact security controls, radically reducing the time and effort needed, even in hybrid environments.”
