Trend Micro integration of AWS Gateway Load Balancer eases security usability

Cloud security company Trend Micro Inc. will be integrating its hybrid cloud security with the newly launched AWS Gateway Load Balancer (GWLB), a service that “makes it easy” to deploy, scale, and manage third-party virtual appliances with Amazon Web Services (AWS).

This integration provides customers with the ability to use trusted vendor appliances, like those from Trend Micro, in a way that is auto-scalable and operates to continuously meet security needs in an as-a-service format.

Companies are quickly migrating their infrastructure into a hybrid cloud model to meet the demands of remote work. Gartner stated in a recent report, “Dynamic cloud realities demand that controls automatically adapt to the protected workloads because an IP address alone is no longer sufficient for security. Trend Micro Cloud One — Network Security with GWLB delivers protection that fits the dynamic nature of cloud migration.

“To maintain functional IT operations, meet compliance standards, and protect complex systems in the cloud, security is a concern that must be proactively addressed,” said Mark Nunnikhoven, vice president of cloud research for Trend Micro and AWS Community Hero. “Customers need an appliance that adapts to increased volume and automatically provides a centralized implementation of network security with less friction. GWLB with Cloud One-Network Security help solves this problem for security teams.”

Security teams using GWLB with Trend Micro for their hybrid cloud security can benefit from high availability, scaling, and load balancing while maintaining all product features and benefits.

Today’s integration with GWLB coincides with Trend Micro’s release of its Cloud One-Network Security solution at AWS Marketplace.
