Re: Acquisition
@Dr.T: What they're lacking even more of is unikernel security -- which, frankly, is probably more effective (and, arguably, more efficient). It's kind of a shame unikernels seem to get the short shrift compared to containers.

Re: Acquisition
@Joe. If this approach has indeed fallen out of favor then the move to acquire Immunio will have a large degree of luck involved for future profitability. It will depend on how the attack vectors mature in the coming years. If virtualization proves to be less effective then currently theorized, this could push TM even further down the competitive ladder.

Re: Acquisition
@Ryan: I've seen reports that sandboxing and security via virtualization has fallen out of favor, but I'm not so sure -- and this development-oriented move could be just the sort of thing to help keep TM competitive in an area where others are sneering.

Re: Trend Micro
@Dr. T: Well, TM still is the default install on a lot of factory-shipped Dells, isn't it? That no doubt helps their market share.

If it doesn't help get them back into the game this could mark the beginning of the end for trend. Possibly another acquisition in the works...

Re: Acquisition
"I would say container security, the industry is lacking of it today."


I would agree that there definitely is a shortage but Immunio is not the only container based security firm. It would just be nice to be a fly on the wall to see what went into the decision making process.

Cloud reach
"Run-time operations located both on-premise and in the cloud"

This may be another advantage for Trend Micro to capture, there is more company having an hybrid cloud solutions today so something that works for both cloud and on-prem would be a good option.

Trend Micro
I think Trend Micros lost the ground a little bit in the industry in recent years, this new company may help them to get back in the game.

"I wonder what the major form factors are for the selection of Immunio"

I would say container security, the industry is lacking of it today.

"Larger businesses purchasing smaller ones to fill in gaps for their own platform is becoming increasingly more common"

Yes, that seems to be the trend. Like Facebook, buying other startups and expending it user base.
