CUPERTINO, Calif., June 18, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trend Micro Inc. (TYO: 4704;TSE: 4704), a global cloud security leader, today announced that the company holds the largest share – 10 to 12 percent -- in the global virtualization security management solutions market, according to The Global Virtualization Security Management Solutions Market 2011-2015, published by independent market research company TechNavio. TechNavio also recently placed Trend Micro #1 in the cloud security market share.
The report cited Trend Micro's wide range of virtualization security solution offerings for virtual environments, and its geographic diversity compared to its competitors. The report also credits the strategic acquisition of Third Brigade, along with Trend Micro's strong partnership network with Microsoft, HP, IBM, VMware, and more for helping Trend Micro expand its virtualization security product offering and lead the market.
The healthy virtualization security market, stated the report, is expected to grow at a CAGR of 49.53 percent within the next three years. Although the Americas is the major contributor to the market, with a share of 51–53 percent, the Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region and the Asia Pacific (APAC) region are also coming up as strong contributors in the market.
This follows other recent third-party reports that validate Trend Micro's stature in cloud and virtualization security:
