Trend Micro Expands XDR Solution into “Threat Defense Platform”: Page 2 of 2

Trend Micro Vision One adds risk visibility, consolidated management, and other features to the vendor’s existing XDR solution in a bid to centralize siloed security tools and simplify threat analysis. By Rich Freeman

Vision One builds upon and replaces Trend Micro’s previous XDR platform. Users of that system will be upgraded to the new product and its extended capabilities at no extra cost.

A promotional offer currently in effect lets users of Trend Micro’s Apex One and Apex One as a Service endpoint security solutions add XDR to 50 endpoints or 10% of their licensed endpoints (whichever is greater) for the length of their contract, and also add Trend Micro Cloud App Security plus XDR to 50 Office 365 mailboxes or 10% of their Apex One endpoints (whichever is greater).

Vision One is designed principally for use by businesses with in-house IT departments, rather than by MSPs and MSSPs. Trend Micro offers a separate managed XDR solution, however, for partners in those categories. Providers of incident response services can use Vision One as an investigative and mitigation tool as well, MacMillan notes.

93% of organizations surveyed by analyst ESG last year were either already working on an XDR project or planning an XDR investment in the next 12 months.

Fortinet introduced an XDR solution powered by artificial intelligence late last month.
