    New ways to protect against malware appear daily. The new techniques sound like a panacea for stopping all malware, but each technique has advantages and disadvantages.

    Serverless applications offer a number of advantages, the biggest one being freedom from a number of standard operational tasks. And while you may not need to do basic ops tasks, you still have a responsibility to keep your data safe and secure. Serverless designs require a completely new approach to development, and securing these applications requires new concepts, processes and tools.

While at the Trend Micro booth, visitors will gain in-depth knowledge about the expansion of Trend Micro’s powerful XGen™ technology to all of its solutions. XGen™ security will effectively and holistically protect an enterprise’s networks, hybrid cloud environments and endpoints from ever-evolving security risks.
