Global cyber security firm Trend Micro has announced that it has achieved Amazon Web Service (AWS) Healthcare Competency status.

This accreditation adds to Trend Micro's more than 15 Amazon Web Service competencies and designations for its cloud security solutions.

As an Amazon Web Service Advanced Technology Partner, Trend Micro offers simple and comprehensive security solutions specially designed to meet the needs of companies using Amazon Web Service.

Critical healthcare operations and the continuous care of patients all depend on the security of highly sensitive personal data. According to Forrester Research, Healthcare organisations must fortify security now and continuously improve it moving forward. Ransomware, insider threats, bad bots, DDoS attacks, and spear-phishing emails targeting HCOs have wreaked havoc on an already overburdened healthcare system.

"XSOLIS provides data automation, transparency, and objective insights to our connected network of providers and payers. Ensuring the secure exchange of data for our customers is our utmost priority," says Zach Evans, chief technology officer at XSOLIS.

"By leveraging Trend Micro managed services, we have improved our security posture and meet compliance with ease, allowing us to focus on our mission of accelerating data-driven decision making and collaboration to create a more efficient healthcare system," he says.

Trend Micro has also added the latest Amazon Web Service DevOps Competency, and averages more than 10 design wins a year, which is a testament to the value Trend Micro has created for customers.

"Technology innovation is in our DNA. This latest designation is another proof point of our successful business transformation as a platform-based cybersecurity provider," says Ashley Watkins, vice president Australia and New Zealand, at Trend Micro.

"As we continue to expand into new business verticals, a strong relationship with AWS allows us to broaden our customer base and jointly create a secure cloud environment," Watkins says.

Amazon Web Service Healthcare Competency recognises partners with proven customer success and technical skills in their respective categories.

According to the cloud giant, customers can work with Amazon Web Service Healthcare Competency Partners to build innovative, cost-effective, and secure solutions that improve operational and clinical effectiveness, while improving patient outcomes for healthcare payers and providers.

Amazon Web Service Healthcare Competency Partners have demonstrated technical expertise and customer success in building healthcare solutions on Amazon Web Service that securely store, process, transmit, and analyse clinical information. The AWS Competency Program validates and promotes Amazon Web Service Partners with demonstrated AWS technical expertise and proven customer success.
