Trend Micro unveils cloud solution to address Microsoft Azure issues

Cloud security firm Trend Micro Inc. announced the availability of its Trend Micro Cloud One-Conformity to Microsoft Azure customers in an effort to help global organizations tackle misconfigurations, compliance challenges, and cyber-risks in the cloud.

“The security of the cloud is a cloud providers’ responsibility, but security in the cloud falls to the customer, which is where we fit,” said Wendy Moore, vice president of product marketing for Trend Micro. “Our Cloud One platform integrates closely with Microsoft Azure allowing DevOps to easily deploy against any hybrid cloud environment during their migration to the cloud.”

In-house skills are often overloaded with the challenge of managing hybrid cloud complexities. The proliferation of shadow IT projects in the enterprise also means IT functions are often the last to know if cloud accounts have been created by business units without adequate care and attention paid to compliance, security, and governance controls.

Study finds ‘misconfiguration’ as top risk to cloud environments


Conformity tackles these challenges by providing powerful visibility and control of Azure environments. Its continuous cloud security and compliance posture management capabilities alert customers to the risk status and provide easy-to-action remediation recommendations. These can help prevent common mistakes such as unauthorized database access and public access to Blob storage accounts.

By implementing the Conformity API into a CI/CD pipeline and existing workflows, DevOps teams can identify potential risk in their cloud infrastructure before they are deployed to live environments for automated, proactive prevention of vulnerabilities.

Trend Micro Cloud One-Conformity identifies around 230 million cloud misconfigurations for its global Azure and AWS customers every single day.
