BT’s Cloud Compute platform will now offer access to Trend Micro’s Deep Security data centre solution after the two companies announced a tie-up.
The UK-based operator's enterprise customers will now have the option to turn on the service when they order Cloud Compute through BT’s Compute Management System, with the option to activate as many modules as they need.
Offered on a pay-as-you-go basis, Deep Security will be available across BT’s 22 global cloud delivery zones in 19 countries.
The product offers anti-malware, host-based firewall, intrusion detection and prevention, integrity monitoring, log inspection, and SSL certificates.
BT is increasing the cyber security capabilities it offers to customers.
In April 2016, BT began a drive to expand its cyber security operations by hiring 900 new staff.
The following month, it launched a cyber security consultancy arm.
Neil Lock, VP of BT Compute at BT Global Services claimed that the integration would simplify cloud security for customers.
Bharat Mistry, Cyber Security Consultant at Trend Micro, said: “The concept of shared responsibility in the cloud requires all customers to make security a priority, but the dynamic nature of the environment means a traditional data centre approach simply doesn’t fit.
“Trend Micro’s Deep Security helps customers meet shared security responsibilities with the industry's most complete solutions set for BT’s Cloud Compute platform.
"Users benefit from a comprehensive security solution protecting their servers from multiple threats.”
