Trend Micro Named a Leader in 2018 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS)

Trend Micro has been named a Leader in the Gartner 2018 Magic Quadrant for Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS) again. We have improved our position in both Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute from last year, and we believe that placement in the Leaders’ quadrant illustrates our commitment to meeting the growing security and performance requirements of data centers and high-performance enterprise networks.

What Sets Us Apart? Go Beyond NGIPS with XGen™ Security

Trend Micro goes beyond next-generation intrusion prevention systems (NGIPS) to protect your enterprise network with a cross-generational blend of threat protection techniques fueled by market-leading threat intelligence. Our solutions are optimized, specifically designed for and integrated with leading customer platforms and applications, and connected through shared threat intelligence with centralized visibility and control across layers of security.

Going beyond NGIPS with XGen™ requires that our solutions must be smart – they must provide faster time to protection against known, undisclosed and unknown threats. Our solution provides protection against the full range of threats through key capabilities like virtual patching, lateral movement detection, machine learning, and custom sandbox analysis. Our threat intelligence is fueled by a global research team and the Zero Day Initiative, the leader in global vulnerability research and discovery since 2007. With exclusive access to vulnerability information from the Zero Day Initiative, we were able to provide customers an average of 72 days of preemptive coverage for vulnerabilities before the availability of a patch in 2017!

XGen™ security demands that our solutions be optimized – they must provide high performance and automated protection that will fit any network environment. With the TippingPoint® TX Series, we are able to provide unparalleled performance up to 40 Gbps in a small physical footprint (1U) for large data centers and high capacity enterprise networks and stack up to 120 Gbps in a 3U form factor. Our purpose-built solutions are designed for optimal performance and network transparency, and can be deployed in the network as a bump-in-the wire – with latency measured at less than 40 microseconds.

XGen™ security requires that our solutions must be connected – they must enable real-time sharing of threat intelligence and provide centralized threat insights to deliver automated and faster time to protection. Our solutions leverage the intelligence gathered from Trend Micro’s security research teams, as well as the Trend Micro Smart Protection Network™ and Zero Day Initiative to detect and block known, unknown and undisclosed attacks in-line in real-time. TippingPoint automatically integrates with Deep Discovery™ to immediately forward suspicious objects to be analyzed and remedied. Our threat insights provide centralized visibility on critical threat information including the number and severity of breached hosts, attacked vulnerable hosts, suspicious objects and zero-day threats. Enterprises can prioritize response measures by quickly understanding the threats impacting the network and identifying those that need immediate attention.
