“As companies embark on their digital transformation initiatives, their enterprise IT organizations are turning to MCSS providers that can integrate and manage a muti-faceted security ecosystem of partners and capabilities for a hybrid environment,” says Cathy Huang, Research Director, IDC Security Services Worldwide. “Trustwave has fused together modular offerings that combine consulting and managed services to address the needs of small, midsize, and large enterprises at various levels of security maturity. Customers that IDC has spoken with cite Trustwave’s SpiderLabs team and Security Colony resource as differentiators.”
Positioned as a Major Player, Trustwave differentiators from the report include the following:

• Innovative emerging technology: According to the report, buyer's rate Trustwave strongly on its effective use of emerging technologies and assets as well as tools used in the engagement. Trustwave's Fusion platform is fully integrated and core to the delivery of MSS, MDR, and/or comanaged SOC services. The platform, which uses ML, can store, process, correlate, and analyze data according to Trustwave's content rules.
• Elite technical expertise: The report noted that Trustwave customers appreciate the technical expertise shown by its staff, frequency of customer engagement, effective onboarding, and overall customer success/customer service support.

"Small/midsize companies and large enterprises with varying levels of security maturity that prefer MSS, MDR, and comanaged SOC offers targeted to each segment will want to consider Trustwave. Also, companies with a mix of on-premises and cloud estates or those in the process of moving to cloud should consider Trustwave's holistic offerings that fuse consulting and managed services," the IDC MarketScape stated.
