Trend Micro Acquires Security Operations Center Tech Provider Anlyz

Trend Micro says the acquisition will extend its orchestration, automation, and integration capabilities. It will also enable enterprises and Managed Security Service Providers to improve operational efficiencies, cost effectiveness, and security outcomes.


Trend Micro, a global cybersecurity leader with a U.S. headquarters in Irving, announced it will acquire Anlyz, a provider of security operations center technology.

The company said its acquisition of Delaware-based Anlyz will extend Trend’s orchestration, automation, and integration capabilities and will enable enterprises and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to improve operational efficiencies, cost effectiveness, and security outcomes.

“We’re happy to welcome the Anlyz team into the Trend family—together we are increasing SOC effectiveness and reducing both the technology and resources burdens,” Trend Micro COO Kevin Simzer said in a statement. “Due to market pressure, we see organizations moving past security point-solution experiments in preference for platform breadth that allows for vendor consolidation, maximized return on investments and efficiencies.”

Financial details were not disclosed.

Deal encompasses IP, industry expertise, 40-plus employees

Trend Micro said the deal encompasses intellectual property, industry expertise, and more than 40 technical employees all focused on strengthening Trend’s security platform strategy.

The company said the acquisition will expand Trend Micro’s engineering team of over 3,000 people, adding a new research and development center in Bangalore, India.

Managed Security Service Providers will be empowered to grow their strategic SOC services while minimizing the complexity of the underlying security stack by reducing the number of technology vendors needed, Trend Micro said.

Its enterprise customers will benefit from a comprehensive detection and response and incident response orchestration platform that can maximize analyst productivity and help relieve resource constraints, the company added.

Aiming to deliver what customers are seeking

Trend Micro cited Gartner research which stated, “As buyers, both end customers and service providers, continue to consolidate vendors/providers, buyers will seek best-of-suite and integrated solutions over best-of- breed point solutions. Preferred technology vendors will be those that ease integration with other IT and security technology and tools within the environment, supporting efforts toward use-case-based outcomes.”

Trend Micro said that it’s been a technology alliance partner with Anlyz since 2021. The two companies share more than 30 joint customers that are positioned to move forward quickly to capitalize on future opportunities.
