This new offering enables organizations to combine the benefits of security software-as-a-service (SaaS) with the convenience of consolidated cloud billing and usage-based, metered pricing.
“Our priority is to make cloud security as effortless as possible, which starts by meeting IT users and developers where they are and then offering comfortable usage and pricing options,” said Sanjay Mehta, SVP -Business Development & Strategic Alliances, Trend Micro.
“Trend Micro is proud to continue our close relationship with Microsoft Azure as one of its top global security partners. Being part of their consumption-based billing launch for SaaS offerings helps customers looking to secure workloads and containers through their Azure instances,” added Mehta.
Trend Micro’s Deep Security as a Service will provide Microsoft Azure customers a fully hosted security management experience with rapid delivery of innovations. The company launched this new offering at the Microsoft’s Inspire 2019 event.

“Customers can pay for only what they use with Trend Micro’s flexible, metered pricing or negotiate a more traditional enterprise agreement using private offers while enjoying a consolidated bill for software and cloud infrastructure,” added Jorgensen.
