Centralized Policy management for Data and Threat Protection

As enterprises deploy security solutions across multiple layers of their IT infrastructure to protect against a wide range of threats, centrally managing security and data protection policies across the enterprise is becoming increasingly difficult. To address the resulting complexity, operational inefficiency, and loss of visibility, organizations require consistent security management that bridges IT silos that often separate threat and data loss prevention. A centralized approach will improve protection, reduce complexity, and eliminate redundant and repetitive tasks in security administration.

Trend Micro Control Manager™ 6 provides central threat and DLP policy management across layers of the IT infrastructure. Customizable data displays provide the visibility and situational awareness that equip organizations to rapidly assess status, identify threats, and respond to incidents. Now you can streamline administration and achieve more consistent policy enforcement with single-click deployment of data protection policies across endpoint, messaging, and gateway solutions.
