Trend Micro/Savvis Partner For Cloud Security

Incorporating virtual intrusion prevention (vIPS) into the Savvis cloud

ST. LOUIS, Aug. 14, 2012 – Savvis, a CenturyLink company (NYSE: CTL) and global leader in cloud infrastructure and hosted IT solutions for enterprises, today announced the addition of Trend Micro™ Deep Security to its global Savvis Symphony Virtual Private Data Center (VPDC) cloud services.

The new security offering, Virtual IPS (vIPS) for VPDC, makes Savvis among the world’s first cloud providers to introduce a virtual, fully automated intrusion prevention system purpose-built for hybrid and public cloud deployments. Benefits to Symphony VPDC customers include virtual self-tuning intrusion prevention and inline patching capabilities.

“Deep Security’s innovative virtualization and cloud security design and feature set enable us to deliver a fully automated, virtualized intrusion prevention system that our customers can implement quickly and easily,” said Chris Richter, vice president of security products and services at Savvis. “Moving forward, we expect to continue collaborating with Trend Micro as we explore opportunities to further enhance our position as a leader in cloud security.”

Savvis expects to further integrate Deep Security and related reporting capabilities with its SavvisStation Portal, which provides users with access and complete visibility into all things surrounding their Savvis-managed IT services, including support tickets, invoices, service reports, security profile and product orders. Savvis also plans to increase its security operations center support to include 24/7 monitoring and support for vIPS.

“Savvis delivers proven, enterprise-ready cloud services that are depended on by many of the world's largest companies,” said Kevin Simzer, vice president of corporate development at Trend Micro. “The addition of Trend Micro Deep Security to these services will enable Savvis customers to upgrade to our industry-leading virtualization and cloud security solutions that are purpose-built to protect hybrid data center and cloud environments.”

Available in North America, Asia and EMEA, Symphony VPDC is one of the industry’s first enterprise-class virtual private data center cloud solutions with multi-tiered security, service and network profiles. The flexible service levels (Essential, Balanced and Premier) provide a range of features, support levels and performance to suit broad infrastructure profiles that enterprises demand. With industry-leading security elements, quality of service and service-level agreements (SLA), Symphony VPDC meets a range of needs including web hosting, test/development, mission-critical and other applications.

Symphony VPDC also can be integrated seamlessly to support hybrid cloud solutions that leverage Savvis' managed hosting, colocation and network services.

Trend Micro Deep Security combines agentless anti-malware, web reputation, integrity monitoring, intrusion prevention and firewall in a single security virtual appliance for VMware virtual machines. In recognition of its leadership in virtualization security, Trend Micro was named VMware’s Technology Alliance Partner of the Year in 2011 and the recipient of the first Cloud Security Alliance Industry Leadership Award in 2012.
