Trend Micro, NEC/Netcracker Join Forces to Deliver NFV-based Security Solution

Trend Micro is joining forces with its long-standing channel partner NEC and NEC’s affiliate Netcracker Technology, the providers of software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) solutions, to deliver virtualized network security solution that can be used in carrier-grade NFV deployments.

Trend Micro will integrate NEC and Netcracker's management and orchestration capabilities with its Virtual Network Function(VNF) Suite. The VNF Suite is designed to offer flexible, reliable and high-performance virtual network security functions for CSPs from premise, to edge, to the core network, said the company.

At the foundation of the VNF Suite is Trend Micro’s innovative deep packet inspection (DPI) technology, which provides various network security functions including intrusion prevention, URL filtering and application control. It has been widely adopted in a variety of network security products, from home routers to enterprise-facing next-generation firewalls and intrusion prevention systems.

By validating and integrating Trend Micro’s VNF Suite with the NEC/Netcracker NaaS solution, the companies will be able to work together closely to create further technical and business synergies as more NFV migrations occur.

An effective security VNF needs to be natively crafted and optimized for NFV infrastructure, while also working closely with the rest of NFV components to provide the best elasticity and most efficient response.

Bringing together the power of Trend Micro and NEC/Netcracker’s SDN/NFV portfolio will provide a more robust network solution for CSPs and contribute to safe and secure networks for enterprises and consumers.
