The combination of security solutions available from the two companies provides government, financial services, retail, healthcare and other organizations with a comprehensive set of advanced security capabilities that are essential to protecting data – which includes authentication, email encryption, SSL certificates, data center and cloud security, network defense and user protection. This partnership will allow organizations to have a more resilient approach to common attacker tactics that include exploiting unencrypted web connections, advanced persistent threats, spear-phishing, targeting unpatched software vulnerabilities, and infiltrating networks to steal data while remaining undetected for extended periods of time.

“Our two companies’ product portfolios are complementary when it comes to providing comprehensive data security to the enterprise,” said Sam Morcos, vice president and general manager, SSL business, at Entrust Datacard. “The acquisition of Trend Micro’s SSL business will further strengthen Entrust Datacard’s commitment to our strategic growth in secure certificate offerings. We are pleased to welcome Trend Micro customers and are committed to making the transition as smooth as possible, and we will ensure that these customers continue to receive superior support.”

“The partnership with Entrust Datacard aligns with the need commonly expressed by our customers to become more resilient to data breaches, hacks, theft and other threats that are becoming more frequent and destructive,” says Partha Panda, vice president, corporate and business development at Trend Micro. “Transitioning our SSL business to a respected global expert provides our customers with the best possible support now and in the future.”
