Trend Micro Incorporated’s cloud-powered XDR and managed XDR solutions perform the most optimized detection tests

FREMONT, CA: Trend Micro, a renowned provider of cloud security has shared significant business value driven by cloud-powered XDR and Managed XDR solutions, which optimize threat detection and response across all critical vectors.These latest offerings optimize threat detection and response across all acute vectors. In a recent survey commissioned by Trend Micro and conducted by ESG, organizations surveyed displayed faster detection, and less alert fatigue as a product of intelligently utilizing the data from all their security controls points.

Trend Micro’s XDR solution is a hybrid of SaaS-based offering and a managed service with the “X” referring to the most expansive sets of data from multiple protection points, which is critical while finding the hidden threats. Forrester recently deemed it as a Leader in enterprise detection and response, and it achieved the highest initial detection in the MITRE ATT&CK Framework.

City of Tyler, Texas CIO and Trend Micro customer, Benny Yazdanpanahi, said, “Our citizens and employees have a right to expect that their data and public services are secured from cyber-threats, but our small IT workforce can’t do everything, so we turned to Managed XDR. Finding a strong, committed partner with knowledge and expertise we don’t have was a game-changer for us. Our city motto is ‘We are called to serve,’ but the same could equally be said of Trend Micro. They care about their customers.”

Trend Micro XDR was considered the first solution to offer correlated detection beyond the endpoint. It included collecting and analyzing insights from email, endpoints, cloud workloads, servers, and networks to effectively hunt down, detect, and efficiently contain threats. It adds a greater context, understanding, and provides faster, more accurate incident responses. It is known that organizations that employ automated data aggregation techniques, like those provided by Trend Micro XDR, enjoy enhanced security outcomes. For instance, they are typically able to restore in hours vs. days by a ratio of 83percent vs. 66 percent.

The solution is also available as a managed service (MDR) to completely take the pressure off constrained in-house teams that provide 24/7 full-threat analysis, threat hunting, response plans, and remediation suggestions.

“There’s no such thing as 100 percent prevention anymore, which puts the focus on effective threat detection and response. With XDR, we’ve broken the mould with correlated detection across traditional siloes to help stretched IT teams optimize their response to stealthy threats,” said Steve Quane, executive vice president at Trend Micro. “I’m proud of the fantastic value our solution offers businesses and of once again delivering on our commitment to secure the connected world. It’s a privilege to remain a trusted cybersecurity advisor for our global customers.”
