Trend named a leader in network analysis and visibility

JOHANNESBURG, 11 July, 2023 Trend Micro Incorporated (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global cybersecurity leader, announced that it has been named a leader in network analysis and visibility (NAV) solutions in a new Forrester evaluation of 13 top solution providers, including Trend Micro. The report analysed three core products in the evaluation of Trend Micro’s offerings.

Emmanuel Tzingakis, Technical Lead: Sub-Saharan Africa at Trend Micro: Zero Trust is quickly becoming a key pillar for any cyber security strategy, but organisations cannot achieve true zero trust without comprehensive insight into and control over their networks. The Trend Vision One platform is built to provide attack surface visibility across endpoint, server, cloud, email, IOT, mobile and at the network level, giving network analysis and visibility by detecting the unknown and protecting the unmanaged allowing cyber security teams to become more proactive as well as being able to respond more effectively in case of an incident.

Forrester describes NAV solutions as used to monitor network traffic, detect threats, discover apps and assets and gain insight into packet payloads. Integrating with analytics, SOAR, XDR and other tools, they help to provide a foundation of visibility and analytics to drive Zero Trust, the report explains.

Its analysis of Trend’s capabilities in this area covers three offerings: Trend Vision One, Deep Discovery Inspector and Tipping Point Intrusion Prevention.

The Forrester report described Trend’s offering as “…a product portfolio rich with native threat intelligence” that “stands out from the competition” and notes that Trend Micro’s rich correlation data set enables “rapid, high-fidelity convictions at the analyst’s fingertips.” Trend’s position as a Leader was accompanied by the highest possible marks in 12 criteria, including: augmented threat analysis, APIs and other integrations, vision, and innovation.

According to the Forrester report:

  • Trend Micro has a UI that is “intuitive and easy to understand”.
  • “Threat detection relies heavily on the ingestion of telemetry from multiple sources”.
  • “Customers with AWS cloud environments will benefit from the tight integration across multi-cloud and multi-tenant properties.”
  • “Trend Micro’s NAV offering is well suited for medium-size to large enterprises that have other Trend Micro products in place or are looking for a platform offering that includes XDR.”

“Trend’s vision is driven by combining all telemetry data, from the endpoint to the cloud, into a single cohesive view, regardless of which vendor provides the data,” says the Forrester report. “Trend’s NAV strategy builds on its capabilities in intrusion prevention, Zero Trust edge, and the endpoint, offering a single vendor technology stack to customers. Trend Micro is unique in that it views all other technologies as possible attack vectors and has a heavy focus on stopping emerging attack techniques.”
