Content security vendor Trend Micro sought to broaden its appeal to large enterprises today by announcing a partnership deal with security management firm BigFix that will see Trend's endpoint security tools integrated with the BigFix platform.
The first of these tools, Trend Micro Web Protection Module, will integrate with the BigFix platform to allow IT managers in large enterprises to easily deploy, manage and control their endpoints, thanks to the platform's single-agent architecture, according to Trend Micro.
The BigFix platform also features consolidated single-console views and the power to scale the solution to cope with over 10,000 endpoints, the company said.
Andrew Hanson, research analyst at IDC, argued that the management capabilities of endpoint protection suites is a substantial differentiator.
"By combining multiple correlated technologies into a single management framework, endpoint protection platforms have the promise of increasing security while lowering complexity, cost and administrative overhead," he said.
