Trend Micro has recently launched its advanced endpoint security offering re-branded as Trend Micro Apex One™. The product redefines endpoint security with the sheer breadth of capabilities delivered as a single agent, with consistency across SaaS and on-premises deployments. This simplified offering enhances automated detection and response and provides actionable insights that maximize security for customers and offers growth opportunities for the channel.
“Our latest release has advancements that address the most pressing endpoint security issues being faced in the industry today,” said Kevin Simzer, chief operating officer for Trend Micro. “Despite the claims of some so-called ‘next-gen’ vendors, effective protection requires multiple layers of security, which is foundational to our strategy. Apex One™ is a fantastic choice for businesses seeking to displace traditional AV or struggling next-gen deployments.”
Three key highlights of Trend Micro Apex One™ are:
- Automated Detection & Response:
Apex One™ is built upon the XGen™ security techniques, which is a cross-generational blend of threat defense functionality that intelligently applies the right technology at the right time. The product includes the industry’s most timely virtual patching capabilities powered by Trend Micro’s Zero Day Initiative, along with a range of modern technologies to detect and block advanced attacks, including fileless threats.
- Actionable Insights:
Apex One™ introduces significantly expanded endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities. Additionally, it connects to Trend Micro’s managed detection and response (MDR) service option that boosts in-house teams with threat hunting and alert monitoring.
Apex One™ offers an industry-leading breadth of capabilities from a single agent, while many vendors are still only shipping two or more. In particular, Apex One™ powerful EDR with the automated detection & response tools, simplifying deployment and eliminating silos.
These key highlights of Trend Micro Apex One™ provide a major growth opportunity for channel partners looking to offer a higher-value product that meets the security needs of enterprises.
The product’s single agent form factor, available in November 2018, eases deployment while addressing today’s demanding protection and compliance requirements. Apex One™ furthers Trend Micro’s existing OfficeScan product and current OfficeScan customers will receive Apex One™ as a regular update at no additional cost.
