Trend Micro's telecom security solution gets VMware-ready certification

Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global provider of cybersecurity solutions, has announced that its telecom IoT security solution, Virtual Network Function Suite (VNFS), has been certified as VMware Ready, the company said.

This designation verifies the compatibility of the Trend Micro solution to secure modern networks that are built to support 5G and Internet of Things (IoT).

Certification by VMware allows communications service providers who prefer or have already adopted VMware vCloud NFV to easily add network security services from Trend Micro. Those who are interested in the Trend Micro solution but haven´t virtualized their networks yet will find it much easier to set up an evaluation environment with VMware vCloud NFV.

Telecom providers are expected to offer highly reliable networks that can support the extra load from an increasing volume of corporate and consumer smart devices, while also keeping their business and home users safe. The fact that Trend Micro blocked more than 20.4 billion threats to both in the first half of 2018 reinforces that it is ideal for this environment.

The Trend Micro VNFS contains a fully virtualized set of network functions that sits on the carrier network, applying URL filtering, application control, intrusion prevention and IoT reputation services. It leverages Trend Micro´s global threat intelligence platform, the Smart Protection Networkâ„¢, which blocks 65 billion threats per year for customers.

The Trend Micro solution supports next-gen NFV networks by enabling security resources to be dynamically allocated and configured for different services as they scale up and down to meet varied traffic demands. It utilizes the data plane development kit for high-speed packet processing, ensuring outstanding performance.
