Trend Micro has announced a collaboration with VMware to enable a software defined data centre. The company is working with VMware to integrate Trend Micro's Deep Security with VMware NSX, the platform for network virtualisation. Trend Micro will conduct demonstrations at VMworld in San Francisco, taking place from 25-29 August 2013. As part of the Trend Micro Cloud and Data Centre Security Solution, Deep Security integrates anti-malware, web reputation and firewall in addition to intrusion prevention, integrity monitoring and log inspection to protect mission-critical applications and data. The platform utilises agentless and agent-based protection to automatically secure virtual servers and desktops, as well as private and public clouds.
