Cybersecurity software provider Trend Micro turned to Amazon Web Services (AWS) for local hosting in an effort to get closer to its cloud customers in Singapore.
The move, which sees the Trend Micro Cloud One offering now hosted in AWS’s Asia Pacific (Singapore) region, aims to help the vendor better serve Singapore customers across industries.
“Running on AWS, Trend Micro Cloud One – available in AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) region – is designed to provide customers with automated and comprehensive security for their AWS environment,” said Santanu Dutt, chief technology officer ASEAN for AWS.
“We are excited to expand our collaboration with Trend Micro in Singapore to simplify cloud security for organizations based here,” he added.
Trend Micro Cloud One is the vendor’s flagship software-as-a-service (SaaS) security solution for protecting servers, resources, and native applications in the cloud.
With Trend Micro Cloud One available in the AWS Asia Pacific (Singapore) Region, Singapore-based customers are now able to deploy locally available end-to-end solutions to effectively protect, detect, and respond to threats from a single source. centralized cloud.
While Trend Micro hopes that local hosting will benefit all of its customers in the local market, it will be of particular interest to organizations in Singapore that are subject to strict regulatory or policy requirements regarding the location of their data.
“Data governance and compliance are becoming a top priority for Singaporean businesses,” said David Ng, Country Manager for Trend Micro in Singapore. “As a customer-centric organization, we want to give our customers the peace of mind of embracing cloud security services and knowing that the security and compliance of their data is well taken care of. “
