Cybersecurity firm Trend Micro has launched its regional data lake for XDR in India after similar launches in Sydney and Singapore. The company also provides Cloud App Security (for Office 365 environments) and Apex One SaaS (Software as a Service) with local sandbox capability made available out of its data centre in India, to address the growing concerns around data localisation and sovereignty issues.
This announcement comes at the back of Trend Micro launching its local managed XDR data centre service in India last year, the company said in a statement.
Trend Micro XDR collects and analyses activity data from emails, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads and networks, enabling security operations centre (SOC) teams to detect, investigate and respond to advanced threats.
“We have launched our local XDR data lake, Cloud App Security and Apex One SaaS, along with sandbox, hosted out of India data centre to serve our vast clientele. This is the need of the hour, as data sovereignty and data protection are of utmost importance to our customers and us alike,” said Nilesh Jain, Vice President, Southeast Asia and India, Trend Micro.
Adding to it, Frank Kuo, Vice President, Product Management, Trend Micro, said, “In an ever-evolving technology landscape, it is important to look at security that goes beyond traditional antivirus. Apex One SaaS leverages a blend of cross-generational threat techniques to provide the broadest protection against all types of threats. It redefines end-point security with its breadth of capabilities and gives centralised visibility and control across all functions. This offers actionable insights that maximise security for customers.”
With EDR being an important building block for XDR, Trend Micro Apex One delivered as SaaS serves as an added advantage for Indian customers, claimed the statement. It also mentioned that this solution is an all-in-one streamlined agent that provides automated detection and response with effective and modern technology, including machine learning, behavioural analysis and more, to block the latest threats with the added benefit of the industry's most timely virtual patching.
