Trustwave today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading information technology research and advisory company, has positioned Trustwave in the "Challengers" quadrant in the most recent "Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide,"1 a report that evaluated 16 different global managed security service providers (MSSPs) on several criteria. Trustwave improved its position in both completeness of vision and ability to execute.
Trustwave Chief Executive Officer and President Robert J. McCullen said,"For the second time in a row, Gartner has named Trustwave a Challenger in its assessment of global managed security services providers. We believe Gartner's recognition of Trustwave showcases all the recent accomplishments the company has made establishing itself as a premier managed security services provider globally. We believe our partnerships with regional telecommunications providers, expanded geographic security operations footprint, large portfolio of security technologies, support for third-party security vendors and threat intelligence and incident response delivered by the SpiderLabs team at Trustwave, all contributed to our standing in the report."
Significant Trustwave managed security services milestones in 2016 included:
• Advanced Security Operations Centers (ASOCs) - Almost doubling its geographic security operations capacity in less than a year, Trustwave now operates nine, up from five, Advanced Security Operations Centers globally located throughout North America, Asia Pacific and Europe. In 2016, Trustwave opened new ASOCs in Sydney, Australia, and Tokyo, Japan. Through its federated ASOCs, Trustwave delivers managed security services plus extended capabilities for advanced threat detection and real-time incident response, containment and remediation.
• Telco partnerships - A strategic part of Trustwave's international growth strategy in managed security services is partnering with telecommunications providers. Leading international telcos are now providing managed security services powered by Trustwave in their regions: Singtel in Singapore, Optus Business in Australia, Globe in the Philippines and Rogers Communications in Canada. Trustwave also forged a relationship with TIS in Japan in 2016. Trustwave plans to partner with additional third parties to continue to fuel international expansion and growth.
• Strategic technology alliances - Through new, strategic alliances with several third-party security industry vendors including Akamai, Carbon Black, CounterTack and Palo Alto Networks, Trustwave can not only manage its own technologies but also those from these and other security industry leaders.
• Innovative services - Trustwave continues to innovate by offering new managed security services such as the Trustwave Managed Endpoint Detection & Response service. It can help identify endpoint behaviors and footprints commonly associated with sophisticated and never-before-seen attacks and help immediately contain and rapidly respond to the incident.
• Leadership - Trustwave has expanded its management team with several notable managed security services industry veterans including Trustwave Chief Operations Officer Rick Miller, Senior Vice President of Managed Security Services Chris Schueler, Senior Vice President of Product Management C.J. Spallitta, Vice President of Product Management James Tomlinson and Executive Vice President of Global Sales Dave Feringa.
