This approval is based on the fulfillment of technical requirements for the Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIGs).

“DISA’s approval allows federal agencies to utilize and configure our solutions in the most effective way, further protecting them from the increasing number of cyberattacks targeting physical, virtual and cloud network environments,” said Ed Cabrera, vice president, cybersecurity strategy, Trend Micro and former chief information security officer for the U.S. Secret Service. “With Deep Security, government IT teams have access to best-of-breed protection through centralized management and simple administration – helping to reduce the cost and complexity of keeping their data safe.”
