Latest offering will empower stretched IT security teams to become
more strategic

Trend
Micro Incorporated
(TYO:
4704
; TSE:

), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today introduced
advanced analytics capabilities for its network security solution, Deep
Discovery. Now in addition to detecting and analyzing advanced threats
on the network, customers will be able to streamline investigation and
response with automated analysis and correlation of network events,
while maximizing organizations' limited IT security resources.

Organizations today are being squeezed on both sides, by an endemic
cybersecurity skills shortage* and increasingly determined threat
actors, driving a heightened fear of missing new threats. They
desperately need a way to simplify and prioritize threat information,
accelerating detection and response.

"Nobody likes to be blindsided. Security professionals need to be able
to see what is happening across their network and respond quickly when
needed. They need to be able to filter the noise so they can focus on
critical tasks," said Eric Skinner, vice president of solution marketing
for Trend Micro. "The new network analytics capabilities of Deep
Discovery do just that, empowering organizations struggling with skills
shortages to keep themselves protected and productive."

In addition to the new network analytics capabilities, Deep Discovery
has enhanced the sharing of advanced threat information or indicators of
compromise (IOCs) by leveraging standards-based formats and transfers
(STIX, TAXII, YARA). All compatible security solutions an organization
uses, including the entire Trend Micro product family and third-party
products, will have the up-to-the-minute threat intelligence. This
simplifies IOC management for stretched IT teams.

"Today's organizations are being steadily submerged by threat alerts.
Firefighting these individual problems means there is no time for the
security team to focus on the bigger picture," said Rob Ayoub, IDC
Program Director, Security Products. "Solutions that address this
challenge effectively can offer significant benefits — enabling IT
security teams to do more with less and add true strategic value to the
organization."

Network analytics enable security teams to easily look back at
historical data in an automated way to determine:

  • Who was the first point of compromise
  • What other users in the network have been impacted
  • Where the threat is calling out to, including Command and
    Control (C&C) and malicious site redirects

By providing a prioritized view of advanced threat detections it helps
IT security teams automate investigations for quicker action, helping
them save time and allowing them to focus their limited resources on
other activities. In addition, the solution accelerates remediation
efforts and even prevents further attacks thanks to information
displayed across the attack lifecycle.

"When it comes to threat detection and response, speed is essential when
trying to minimize the impact of an attack. With limited time and
resources, we need a tool that can help us correlate threats and quickly
steer us in the right direction," said Jeff Ringness, IT Security
Architect at Eaton Corp. "Now Trend Micro can aid in the heavy lifting,
turning a manual intensive process into something far more manageable.
By grouping similar detections together in one easy-to-view screen, our
security team will be able to reduce the time to investigate and shift
our efforts to prevention and remediation."

Advanced threat sharing and network analytics capabilities for Deep
Discovery are now available globally.
