KUALA LUMPUR (Aug 18): Multinational cyber security and defense company Trend Micro Incorporated has launched its comprehensive XDR Platform in Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa.

In a statement, the Tokyo and Texas-headquartered firm described its Trend Micro XDR as the first in the cybersecurity industry that offers the most extensive correlated detection going beyond endpoint detection and response (EDR).

Trend Micro said its XDR collects and analyses activity data from emails, endpoints, servers, cloud workloads, and networks, enabling Security Operations Center (SOC) teams to detect, investigate, and respond to threats more effectively.

The firm said SOC analysts are up against sophisticated threats that are designed to circumvent the most advanced protection.

It said adding fire to the fuel is the massive volume of alerts they have to triage on a daily basis, explaining that low job satisfaction and cybersecurity talent shortage are commonplace challenges for SOCs across the region.

Trend Micro Senior Vice President, Asia, Middle East and Africa Dhanya Thakkar said Trend Micro’s XDR is designed to address such operational nightmares in a SOC.

“There has been tremendous demand from our customers in the region for XDR capabilities since last year.

“Now they will be able to have the full XDR experience,” he said.

Thakkar said Trend Micro’s XDR is also available as a managed service (MDR), to further alleviate the pressure of constrained in-house teams.

He said the MDR team conducts 24/7 full-threat analysis and threat hunting and provides response plans and remediation recommendations.

“EDR is only one piece of the whole detection and response puzzle. It’s great but it has limited reach, as it only collects data on the endpoints.

“To have integrated visibility across multiple security vectors is a top-priority item on any SOC’s to-do list. And XDR ticks that box,” he said.
