Protection against attacks dedicated to physical servers, virtual servers and servers located in cloud data centers of critical importance for the organisation.
It is difficult to imagine a modern Data Center in which virtual environments based on VMware, Microsoft or Citrix are not implemented. Unfortunately, in most cases, those environments are somehow detached from the network layer and security systems, that are unaware of the existence of virtualised environment using the physical server infrastructure. In practice, we observe:
Virtualisation of not only the server layer but also the LAN and security systems, so that all these three elements work together and form a coherent system, becomes a critical element when designing the environments in the Data Center. Another issue related to Data Center virtualisation is the possibility of sharing the infrastructure with many independent clients:
Trend Micro Deep Security is a comprehensive server and application protection solution that enables the self-defence of physical, virtual, and cloud computing environments. Regardless of whether this solution is implemented as software, virtual device or hybrid, it reduces costs, facilitates management and enhances the protection of virtual machines, without disrupting normal operation. Deep Security also meets a number of regulatory compliance requirements, including six main requirements of compliance with PCI standard – thanks to firewall at web application layer level, IDS/IPS systems, file integrity monitoring and network segmentation.
Exactly 100% of the Fortune 500 companies and 98% of the Fortune Global 500 companies have virtual data centers.

Security agents are available on many system platforms (not only Windows but also Linux, Solaris, Unix (Hp-UX, AIX). The software also has Common Criteria EAL3+ certificates and a certificate confirming compliance with PCI (PCI Suitability Testing for HIPS) standards from NSS Labs.
