Trend Micro signs five-year deal with HR firm

Cyber security company Trend Micro has signed a five-year deal to provide its Deep Security-as-a-Service solution to human resources and flexible work services firm, the Randstad Group.

A statement from Trend Micro said the Randstad Group was consolidating and centralising its IT infrastructure across 30 IT departments which covered 40 operating companies in Europe, North and South America, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.

The company said the amount of the contract was confidential.

The switch to Trend Micro is claimed to "increase efficiencies, reduce risks and align IT infrastructure with Randstad’s digital vision to provide better service".

The Deep Security solution covers security controls that are completely host- and consumption-based. It can provide protection based on automated policy due to integration of controls in its design.

Randstad will have to pay only for actual use of the platform.

Trend Micro said Deep Security would work well with a large number of Microsoft and Linux server platforms. It supported DevOps processes and container technology integrating with Splunk and ServiceNow, which Randstad would deploy.

Bernardo Payet, general manager for Randstad Global IT Solutions, said, “Today the disruptive influences of digital technology are providing us with more opportunities to capitalise in our markets.

"We decided to centralise responsibility for all IT infrastructure into the new global IT Shared Service Centre. In turn, the IT SSC was looking for partners to transform the landscape over time, to a fully cloud-enabled future mode of operations.

"We found in Trend Micro the perfect combination of an effective and scalable platform to fulfil Randstad’s security requirements.”

Dhanya Thakkar, vice-president and managing director APAC at Trend Micro, said: "Trend Micro helps companies embrace cloud technologies securely. Ultimately this delivers a flexible and efficient infrastructure with applications and data which can be used safely in the cloud.

"We are proud to support Randstad Group in their transition to the AWS Cloud.”

Ransomware is a type of malware that blocks access to your files and systems until you pay a ransom.

The first example of ransomware happened on September 5, 2013, when Cryptolocker was unleashed.

It quickly affected many systems with hackers requiring users to pay money for the decryption keys.
