Randstad Group selects Trend Micro to protect its public cloud infrastructure
Trend Micro (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in cybersecurity solutions, today announced that the Randstad Group, a human resources and flexible work services industry leader, has selected Trend Micro to ensure all services on new infrastructure will benefit from optimum security protection using deep security as a service (SAAS). Randstad has selected Trend Micro as its cloud infrastructure security solution partner for the next five years.
The Randstad Group is currently consolidating and centralising its IT infrastructure across 30 IT departments providing service to 40 operating companies in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific. This transformation will increase efficiencies, reduce risks and align IT infrastructure with Randstad's digital vision to provide better service.
Host and consumption-based
Trend Micro Deep Security is a market leader in server protection solutions. The solution encompasses a complete set of security controls which are entirely host and consumption-based. Automated policy-based protection is possible thanks to the integration of the controls in its design. In this SAAS model, Randstad will only incur the costs associated with the actual use of the platform (pay as you go).
Deep Security is optimised to integrate with a large number of Microsoft and Linux server platforms offering fast and effective protection against new and unknown vulnerabilities. Deep Security supports DevOps processes and container technology integrating with Splunk and ServiceNow, which Randstad will also deploy.
Bernardo Payet, general manager for Randstad Global IT Solutions said, "Today the disruptive influences of digital technology are providing us with more opportunities to capitalise in our markets. We decided to centralise responsibility for all IT Infrastructure into the new Global IT Shared Service Centre (SSC). In turn, the IT SSC was looking for partners to transform the landscape over time, to a fully cloud-enabled future mode of operations. We found in Trend Micro the perfect combination of an effective and scalable platform to fulfil Randstad's security requirements."
"Trend Micro helps companies embrace cloud technologies securely," adds Steven Heyde, regional director for Trend Micro Benelux. "Ultimately this delivers a flexible and efficient infrastructure with applications and data which can be used safely in the cloud. We are proud to support Randstad Group in their transition to the AWS Cloud."
