Trend Micro, the cloud security provider, today announced the launch of its Cloud One regional data centre in India, to uphold data sovereignty and safeguard data privacy in the country.
Cloud One is Trend Micro’s flagship cloud security services platform for protecting servers, resources, and applications in the cloud. Trend Micro claims to have been one of the first security vendors to have the broadest set of services around cloud security, delivered out of India. This move is said to follow its regional XDR data lake in India last year.
Owing to the agility that cloud brings, organisations are increasingly embracing it, making SaaS the preferred model for security solutions delivery. However, many customers face regulatory or policy-based concerns around the location of SaaS platforms or data storage for their workloads. Having a data centre within the country improves compliance and reduces friction for guidance and reporting requirements, noted a company statement.
“Cloud One addresses the most fundamental cloud security requirements of the customers, protecting a number of the most used cloud services, such as compute, file storage, containers, serverless functions, virtual private network, and more. Cloud One also enables customers to gain full visibility into their hybrid or multi-cloud environment, and ensure that the cloud services are configured correctly and are compliant to industry standards,” said Vijendra Katiyar, country manager, India & SAARC, Trend Micro.
