Cloud Computing Security

Nearly half of all companies struggle to secure their journey to the cloud.

Cloud computing is changing our digital world

The “cloud” is simply using the Internet to access shared computing resources. It’s changing the way we consume, share and use digital information because it makes access to information and computing power easier, faster, more affordable. In fact, more and more companies are adopting cloud computing even as they face new security challenges.

What it means to you

As a consumer cloud computing provides easy-to-use applications and services, but you need to know your personal information and files are secure. As a business owner you need to understand the opportunities and risks of cloud computing, and how to make the move that’s right for you and your business.

Trend Micro’s annual global cloud security survey found that with greater public cloud adoption comes more security issues for companies all over the world.

Finding the right security strategy can help you take advantage of the amazing potential cloud computing offers enterprises to control their data, maintain compliance and decrease costs.

Regardless of the approach you take to cloud computing, you’ll need a solid security foundation that spans across all of your platforms – physical, virtual and cloud.


Whether you’re a consumer, small business or enterprise, Trend Micro is the smart security choice as you journey to the cloud. (04:05)

Trend Micro began its own journey to the cloud with the development of the Smart Protection Network  infrastructure more than five years ago. We implemented a cloud-based email reputation collection and correlation database. This was soon expanded to include web reputation checking, and later file reputation, to create a triad of global threat intelligence correlation.

By providing more complete threat intelligence, faster threat detection and blocking, and smaller pattern file updates, Smart Protection Network has proved the efficacy of cloud-based protection. We continue to expand the capabilities of Smart Protection Network by applying big data analytics to keep pace with the volume, variety, and velocity of today’s threats.

While delivering security from the cloud, we also took an active role in advancing security technologies for the cloud. As an early adopter of virtualization and cloud computing, we gained a clear understanding of the challenges to extending threat protection into emerging cloud environments, resulting in product innovations that lead the industry and continue to evolve.
