Irving-Based Trend Micro acquires firm focused on security operations center tech

Irving-based cybersecurity firm Trend Micro Incorporated announced today an agreement to acquire Anlyz, a security operations center technology provider.

According to a news release, the acquisition “will extend Trend’s orchestration, automation and integration capabilities and will enable enterprises and Managed Security Service Providers to improve operational efficiencies, cost-effectiveness and security outcomes.”

The acquisition covers intellectual property, expertise and more than 40 employees. This deal will expand Trend’s engineering team to over 3,000 and adds a new research and development center in Bangalore, India.

“We are happy to welcome the Anlyz team into the Trend family – together we are increasing SOC effectiveness and reducing both the technology and resources burdens,” Kevin Simzer, COO of Trend Micro, said in a prepared 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.”
