Integrated security comes to web apps

Web apps are becoming increasingly important business tools to many organizations and, if not secured, they also risk becoming a security weakpoint that can be exploited to gain entry to sensitive business data.

It’s a vulnerability that security vendor Trend Micro Inc. is seeking to address with its latest offering, Trend Micro Web App Security. According to the vendor, it’s a service offering that provides enterprise-grade security, including vulnerability detection and protection, for web applications and the platform they’re running on in an organization. The cloud-based service can issue unlimited SSL certificates and be tuned to meet each application’s unique security needs.

The tool is part of Trend Micro’s Cloud and Data Centre Security Solution. In addition to vulnerability detection, it also includes web malware checking and reputation management, automatic protection at the platform level and native integration with leading web application firewalls.

“As attacks grow in sophistication and volume, our team is working diligently to ensure that customers are ready,” said Kevin Simzer, senior vice-president of marketing and business development at Trend Micro, in a statement. “Providing comprehensive detection and protection capabilities through a scalable cloud service helps to set Trend Micro apart from traditional offerings. Organizations deploying Web App Security are able to benefit from proven security combined with a compelling package of cost-effective detection, protection and SSL certificates.”

Trend Micro Web App Security is available now in North America.
