Trend Micro has announced that it was named one of the 100 Coolest Cloud Companies for 2021 by CRN. This annual list recognises the leading cloud technology providers in five critical categories: infrastructure, monitoring and management, security, storage and software.
This year’s 100 Coolest Cloud Companies were selected based on two key deliverables: companies’ demonstrated commitment to working with channel partners; and their innovation in product and service development.
“Since day one, our sales model has been selling through the channel – that has not changed. However, as market dynamics and the needs of our partners change, so does our partner program. With cloud becoming increasingly relevant, we’ve refreshed our channel program to enable and reward our partners for their cloud business,” said Louise McEvoy, VP, US channel, Trend Micro. “I’m proud of the work the Trend Micro channel team has done to grow this business through the channel and proud of our partners for growing their cloud business alongside us. I’m humbled by this recognition, as it is a great validation of these efforts.”
With the launch of Trend Micro Cloud One, the company has launched a security services platform for organisations building in the cloud, delivering the broadest and deepest cloud security offering in one solution. It enables customers to secure their cloud infrastructure with clarity and simplicity.
“We are thrilled to be selected, once again, as one of the Coolest Cloud Companies for 2021. The award affirms our position at the top of the industry in cloud security, all the while remaining in close contact with our channel partners to ensure their overall success,” said Wendy Moore, VP, Product Marketing, Trend Micro. “Trend Micro’s Cloud One™, our new security services platform for cloud builders, will help our partners simplify their end customer’s hybrid and multi-cloud security. This, in return, adds both a cloud portfolio and services opportunities for our valued partners.”
