Customers Can Efficiently Mitigate Security Risks with Strong Support by Certified Experts
Taipei, Taiwan – July 8, 2013 –a global leader in security software and solutions, today announced the launch of Trend Warrior Program in Southeast Asia. To be rolled out in Thailand this July and in Malaysia and Singapore in late 2013, this program aims to train and certify professionals in Trend Micro's partner network so that experts with rich experience in IT security and in-depth solution knowledge of Trend Micro solutions will be easily accessible. Trend Micro customers in Southeast Asia can efficiently mitigate risks of security breaches with strong support by these certified system engineers, consultants, and architects.
Targeted attacks designed to lay hidden inside networks while exfiltrating information have been a fact of life for businesses as well as government agencies. For example, Trend Micro recently discovered an attack campaign that uses a remote access tool in its operations to target different entities in the APAC region. The victims range from telecommunications, oil and gas, media/communications industries to the public sector. Moreover, among the 22 support cases submitted to Trend Micro in June, 16 were identified as advanced persistent attacks (APTs). To combat such targeted attacks, especially APTs, organizations need innovative threat detection and response measures. Trend Warrior Program is an integral part of Trend Micro's solutions and services. Committed to the success of its partners, Trend Micro delivers resources and tools for them to safeguard customers' sensitive data and intellectual property.
Trend Warrior Program is designed to certify two roles of security experts, with certain experience and technical capabilities strictly set as prerequisites for each role. Architects are expected to provide consultancy services in infrastructure of cloud as well as of data centers; consultants will help customers with the process from threat analysis, solution evaluation to deployment. While each role is different, all of the certified professionals will be equipped with thorough knowledge of Trend Micro Deep Discovery -- a solution providing insight into and control over networks to defend against targeted threats, and Trend Micro Deep Security -- a platform preventing data theft and business disruptions for physical, virtual, and cloud servers.
After the completion of certification in Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore, Trend Warrior Program will be expanded to other countries in Southeast Asia. Certified partners will also be highlighted separately on Trend Micro's company website so customers can readily reach experts that meet their needs.
