Singtel Integrates Global Cybersecurity Capabilities Under Trustwave to Create an Industry Powerhouse
Singtel today announced it has pooled the cybersecurity
capabilities, technologies and resources of Singtel, Optus (News - Alert), Trustwave
and NCS, into a single global corporate identity operating under the
Trustwave brand. The strategic measure forms one of the industry's most
comprehensive global cybersecurity companies offering a complete range
security services, consulting, education and leading-edge
technologies to help organizations worldwide contend with rapidly
evolving external and internal threats.
Through the integration, the new Trustwave can harness the synergies and
strengths of Singtel's global cybersecurity business, revenue,
capabilities and teams across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific.
Trustwave's global cyber business now has about 2,000 security
employees, a global network of ten connected Advanced
Security Operations Centers (ASOCs) supported by its elite Trustwave
SpiderLabs security team, millions of businesses enrolled in its
cloud-based security platform, more than 10,000 managed security
services customers, and nearly 1,000 channel partners and numerous
technology partners worldwide. The Trustwave portfolio includes many
services and technologies recognized as industry-leading by analysts.
"Uniting the security assets and deep expertise of Singtel, Optus,
Trustwave and NCS under one brand and single vision - what we call the
new Trustwave -- is a pivotal milestone for our customers, partners,
employees and company," said Arthur Wong, Chief Executive Officer at
Trustwave. "Trustwave is well-positioned to further its role as a
recognized leader in cybersecurity and managed security services, areas
vital for effective security programs as enterprises accelerate their
digital transformation. Customers benefit by having a trusted security
partner with true global reach and intelligence, offering
around-the-clock monitoring, detection and eradication of threats in
addition to deep regional security expertise necessary for successfully
addressing global threats and localized attack campaigns."
As part of the integration, Trustwave has re-designed its logo, giving
it a bold modern look with new brand identity and color scheme, and
launched a new corporate website at www.trustwave.com.
The website serves as the digital hub showcasing all Trustwave
offerings, including those from Singtel, Optus and NCS.
Benefits of the integration include:
Broader security services portfolio --The new Trustwave
portfolio includes manage security services, security testing,
consulting, technology solutions and cybersecurity education. The
integration provides Trustwave with additional managed security
services, third-party technology solutions and cybersecurity education
and training services like the Cyber Security Institute in Singapore.
Increased focus on industry-leading technologies --Trustwave
will continue to offer both its own technologies and those from third
parties. Trustwave has added and will continue to add more
industry-leading third-party technologies that are integrated or
wrapped with its managed security and consulting services to offer
even more compelling solutions that solve cybersecurity problems and
More cybersecurity resources and talent --Through the
integration of Singtel's global cybersecurity assets under Trustwave,
the company has added more resources, employees and services to help
customers protect their data and reduce risk. At a time when there is
a world-wide security skills shortage, the company has about 2,000
security professionals worldwide delivering, selling, marketing and
supporting Trustwave cybersecurity solutions and managed security
services. The added personnel complements ten interlinked Advanced
Security Operations Centers responsible for delivering continuous
threat monitoring, detection and threat elimination along with threat
intelligence to ensure organizations are continuously protected
regardless of location.
Advanced security training and continued education --Trustwave
has combined the training and continued education assets from
Singtel's cybersecurity businesses including Trustwave Academy and the
Cyber Security Institute into a comprehensive program delivered
on-premises and remotely. Cybersecurity education has become paramount
to addressing the threat landscape through knowledge and best
practices. Customers, partners and employees can learn the latest
techniques for detecting threats, defending networks, protecting data
and optimizing technologies from many of the world's top minds in
cybersecurity. Options for earning industry recognized certifications
and accreditation in penetration testing, data forensics, incident
response and other fields are offered.
Separate business unit focused on compliance --Trustwave has
created a separate global
Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and risk management arm to
help organizations achieve and maintain regulatory compliance. The
division represents a continued commitment to focus on compliance,
risk and data privacy customer challenges while building upon
Trustwave's foundation as a payment card industry data security
