Wipro, Trend Micro to deliver virtualisation security offerings for datacentres

New offerings to address private and public cloud security.

Trend Micro has partnered with Wipro Technologies to provide virtualisation security offerings for dynamic datacentres.

Under the partnership, the companies will develop new offerings that help secure public and private cloud computing environments. The companies are building Centers of Excellence to address the data protection, security and compliance needs of virtualised datacentres and market demand for server consolidation.

The companies said that the mutual customers will be able to leverage the benefits of Trend Micro enterprise security offerings through Wipro's approach for deployment. With access to combined expertise at these Centers of Excellence around the globe including the US, UK, Australia and Japan, enterprises will be able to better focus on their core business competencies.

As part of the agreement, the companies will provide joint virtualised data centre security and datacentre consolidation offerings using security products from Trend Micro and other mutual partners. Wipro becomes a global reseller of Trend Micro products that encompass threat management, web, messaging, server and endpoint security.

In addition to Trend Micro, Wipro has the largest Centers of Excellence for Hewlett-Packard/Mercury, EMC and Cisco.

Wael Mohamed, senior vice president of business development at Trend Micro, said: "We have entered into a strategic relationship with Wipro for their global expertise in technology services. This agreement allows us to create security that fits - customisable, scalable solutions that enable enterprises to protect confidential data and take advantage of the benefits of virtualisation and cloud computing without compromising the security of their dynamic datacentres."

We're hiring! Join the New Statesman as an editorial assistant

The NS is looking for a new recruit.

The New Statesman is hiring an editorial assistant, who will work across the website and magazine to help the office run smoothly. The ideal candidate will have excellent language skills, a passion for journalism, and the ability to work quickly and confidently under pressure.

The job is a broad one – you will need to understand the requirements of both halves of the magazine (politics and culture) as well as having an interest in the technical requirements of magazine and website production. Experience with podcasts and social media would be helpful.

The right person will have omnivorous reading habits and the ability to assimilate new topics at speed. You will be expected to help out with administration tasks around the office, so you must be willing to take direction and get involved with unglamorous tasks. There will be opportunities to write, but this will not form the main part of the job. (Our current editorial assistant is now moving on to a writing post.)

This is a full-time paid job, which would suit a recent graduate or someone who is looking for an entry into journalism. On the job training and help with career development will be offered.

Please apply with an email to Stephen Bush (Stephen. Bush @ newstatesman.co.uk) with the subject line ‘Editorial Assistant application’.  

In your covering letter, please include a 300-word analysis of the strengths and weaknesses of the New Statesman. Please also include 500 words on what you consider to be the most interesting trend in British politics, and your CV as a Word document. 

The deadline for applications is noon on Monday 12th October.
