Trustwave, a leading provider of cloud-based compliance and information security solutions, has opened a new Security Operations Center (SOC) in Manila, the capital of the Philippines, to meet client needs and support the growth of Trustwave’s Managed Security Services. The new Security Operations Center enhances Trustwave’s ability to serve clients headquartered in Asia Pacific, in addition to large, multinational businesses with operations in the region.
Security Operations Centers are “mission control” centers through which Trustwave delivers Managed Security Services. The new, secure Manila facility houses the infrastructure and staff necessary to deliver customer service, threat monitoring and device management to Trustwave clients. Trustwave now operates four Security Operations Centers worldwide in Chicago, Denver, Manila and Warsaw.
“Adding a Security Operations Center in the Asia Pacific region was a logical next step in the growth and evolution of Trustwave Managed Security Services,” said Michael Petitti, Executive Vice President of Asia Pacific at Trustwave. “Our Asia Pacific expansion allows us to bridge geographical gaps and language barriers, while delivering high-value Managed Security Services and security expertise to our clients. Manila was an ideal location due to the wide variety of languages used throughout the city and country. From this Security Operations Center, our team can assist clients in English, Filipino, Japanese, Korean and Mandarin.”
Industry analyst firm Gartner anticipates that the Asia Pacific market for Managed Security Services will continue to grow from 28 percent to 33 percent annually through 2015.
Trustwave has successfully expanded its Managed Security Services offerings beyond traditional security services. While traditional services like managed firewalls, log monitoring, unified threat management and secure email continue to be essential layers of protection, they don’t always keep up with the latest threats to the network, applications or data. Trustwave goes beyond the basics with more advanced offerings managed by Trustwave Security Operations Centers worldwide using the latest Trustwave SIEM technology combined with threat intelligence and security research by Trustwave SpiderLabs.
Trustwave Managed Security Services have received global recognition including recently being a finalist for the SC Magazine Europe award for Best Integrated Security Solution. Trustwave was also named a “Leader” in the March 2012 “Forrester Wave™: Managed Security Services: North America, Q1 2012” and was one of the top vendors “that matter most” that Forrester invited to participate in its evaluation to assess the state of the managed security services provider market.
