According to Gartner2, the public sector vertical will "incorporate cloud services, software-defined networks, and hyper-automation in technology and virtual desktops to ensure maximum flexibility in transitioning staff in and out of government offices according to fluctuations in COVID-19 levels."
Trend Micro's global expertise in cloud workload protection offers government customers a single purpose-built solution for virtual, cloud and container environments. The new services are optimized for AWS environments and provide automated protection via simplified deployment, rich APIs across multi-cloud environments and consistent, context-aware policies.
"We are committed to supporting our AWS Partners as they help customers leverage the cloud in order to meet their missions," said Sandy Carter, Vice President of Partners and Programs, AWS. "I applaud our partners Carahsoft, Smartronix, and Trend Micro for providing public sector customers with trusted security services to help them fast track their AWS cloud adoption, while maintaining continuity of operations, and FedRAMP compliance."
Trend Micro Deep SecurityTM for Government by Smartronix provides comprehensive security in a single solution that is built to protect sensitive workloads in Smartronix's FedRAMP authorized environment.
"Government agencies are accelerating their journey to the cloud to save taxpayer dollars, drive greater IT efficiencies and become more agile in what they do. But this threatens to expand the attack surface and expose these organizations to increased cyber-risk," said Kevin Simzer, COO of Trend Micro. "We have a strategic partnership with Smartronix who will go the final mile with these specific customers to help mitigate these risks and maximize AWS cloud investments."
Public sector organizations have multiple options to leverage Trend Micro's cloud security technologies via Smartronix' FedRAMP authorized Cloud Assured Managed Services platform. It can be delivered as a fully managed service, supported by Smartronix, or as a SaaS solution.
"Smartronix continues to support the increased demand for secure and compliant cloud solutions required by our government customers to meet their mission needs," said Peter LaMontagne, CEO of Smartronix. "Partnering with Trend Micro enables Smartronix to deliver a differentiated solution through a SaaS deployment and managed services model, via our FedRAMP authorized Cloud Assured Managed Services platform."
Smartronix was acknowledged as a Leader for the third time in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Public Cloud Infrastructure Professional and Managed Services, Worldwide report.3
The new Trend Micro Deep Security™ for Government by Smartronix is available through Carahsoft Technology Corp. and will soon be listed on AWS Marketplace.
