Trend Micro Acquires Cloud Conformity

Trend Micro Incorporated today announced it has acquired Cloud Conformity, an innovative Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) company. The acquisition instantly broadens the cloud services Trend Micro can secure and resolves often overlooked security issues caused by cloud infrastructure misconfiguration.

Trend Micro’s strategy is built to ensure cloud security without disrupting how customers need to do business. This acquisition builds upon Trend Micro’s continuous innovation in cloud security, adding complementary capabilities that automatically identify and fix a range of cloud infrastructure configuration issues. It also optimizes costs and helps ensure compliance with leading industry regulatory standards such as PCI, GDPR, HIPAA and NIST.

In purposeful acquisitions, people matter as much as the technology, and Trend Micro will nurture and grow both as part of its market-leading cloud security strategy. The addition of all of Cloud Conformity’s employees brings valuable expertise and experience, along with the technology, to help businesses build in the cloud more effectively, not just build securely.

According to Gartner, “Through 2023, at least 99% of cloud security failures will be the customer’s fault.”* Gartner also states, “Through 2024, organizations implementing a CSPM offering and extending this into development will reduce cloud-related security incidents due to misconfiguration by 80%.” Trend Micro’s comprehensive set of cloud security services provide assurance for businesses that their risk is effectively managed while simultaneously meeting compliance standards.
