LAUREL, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aquilent, the recognized leading provider of Mobile, Web, Cloud and Portal solutions shaping the next generation of technology for the federal government, has been named “Cloud Service Provider of the Year” by Trend Micro Incorporated.

Aquilent is a member of Trend Micro’s Partner Program for Cloud Service Providers, started earlier this year. The program is designed to help customers more effectively address security and compliance requirements when moving to a cloud environment.
“Aquilent was one of the first to join our new Partner Program for Cloud Services Providers,” said Partha Panda, vice president of global channels and alliances, Trend Micro. “With their deep expertise in AWS and strong market presence they’ve demonstrated tremendous leadership in helping customers address essential security and compliance requirements by recommending and embedding Trend Micro Deep Security into their solutions. We are excited to be partnering with Aquilent as they address the rapidly growing market for cloud security solutions.”
