DALLAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trend Micro International (TYO: 4704; TSE: 4704), a global leader in security software, is proud to be featured in a new AWS Quick Start Reference Deployment for National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) compliance developed in conjunction with Amazon Web Services (AWS). This Quick Start is a part of the AWS Enterprise Accelerator for Compliance that assists the federal government and other customers who have a need to meet NIST SP 800-53(rev4) high impact security control requirements on AWS.
The AWS Quick Start - Standardized Architecture for NIST High Impact Controls on the AWS Cloud Featuring Trend Micro Deep Security includes a deployment guide, AWS CloudFormation templates for automation, and a security controls matrix describing how NIST SP 800-53 controls are addressed at the infrastructure layer with AWS controls, and how many additional high impact security controls at the workload (app, data, and operating system) layer are addressed by Trend Micro Deep Security.
“Security and compliance are top of mind for our customers, but both can be time-consuming and resource-intensive processes. For that reason, we’ve created the AWS Enterprise Accelerator for Compliance as a framework to help compress and simplify compliance processes,” said Teresa Carlson, vice president, worldwide public sector for Amazon Web Services, Inc. “We are so pleased APN Advanced Technology Partner, Trend Micro, has created a combined accelerator that helps organizations achieve NIST high impact security controls.”
This AWS Quick Start includes a recommended architecture which, when deployed as a package, provides a baseline for security-related configurations for AWS and Trend Micro Deep Security, as well as security control inheritance from AWS. We have also included a sortable spreadsheet that outlines how these controls can also be used to address other compliance programs including FedRAMP and Trusted Internet Connection Initiative (TIC) Capabilities Version 2.0.
“By combining AWS controls and best practices with Trend Micro Deep Security for workload protection,” says Bill McGee, senior vice president and general manager, Hybrid Cloud Security at Trend Micro, “organizations can simplify the adoption and automation of NIST high impact security controls, radically reducing the time and effort needed, even in hybrid environments.”

Trend Micro will be presenting this AWS Quick Start alongside AWS at the AWS Public Sector Summit in Washington D.C. on June 21, 2016 in a session entitled “Mission (Not) Impossible – NIST SP 800-53 high impact controls on AWS.” Join us and learn how to leverage AWS and Trend Micro security controls to retain logs, control access to systems, monitor changes and more, and how to automate everything using technologies like AWS CloudFormation.
