Cybersecurity company Trend Micro Inc. has said that it is making its managed detection and response (MDR) services available for Indian enterprises.

It further said that the set of new services launched in the country was planned to address the shortage of cybersecurity professionals in the country and augment an enterprise's threat-hunting and investigation capabilities.

As part of its focus areas this year, the company said that it was looking at products such as Apex One for endpoint security, cloud security for companies operating in the hybrid cloud environment, network defence, virtual patching, and providing even more visibility through connected threat defence.

It further said that it had seen a huge uptake in its endpoint services in the country.

"In India, 33 out of the 40 large banks and seven of the top energy companies rely on our connected threat defence solutions. The top five information technology (IT) and IT-enabled services (ITES) companies are using our hybrid cloud security solutions, and all the three private telcos have implemented our network security and hosted email security solutions," Nilesh Jain, vice-president, Southeast Asia and India, Trend Micro, said.

Speaking about the company's channel strategy, Jain said that the firm could leverage its channel partners’ security operations centres and existing capabilities, and work together with them to deliver solutions to the customers. 

"Our end goal is to grow together with the channel partners, creating a win-win situation,” he said.

The company also offers a two-month certification programme in IT security at its Bengaluru facility. The programme, it said, is expected to equip the trainee with hands-on knowledge and skills.
