2013-03-06 17:10:36 - New Philippines Facility Supports Trustwave Managed Security Services Clients
Trustwave, a leading provider of cloud-based compliance and information security solutions, has opened a new Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Manila to meet client needs and support the growth of Trustwave’s Managed Security Services. The new Security Operations Centre enhances Trustwave’s ability to serve clients headquartered in Asia-Pacific, in addition to large, multinational businesses with operations in the region.
Security Operations Centres are “mission control” centres 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’s clients. Trustwave now operates four Security Operations Centres worldwide – in Chicago, Denver, Manila and Warsaw.
“Adding a Security Operations Centre 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, whilst 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 Centre, 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 per cent to 33 per cent annually through 2015.
Trustwave has expanded successfully its Managed Security Services offerings beyond traditional-security services. Whilst traditional services like managed firewalls, log monitoring, unified-threat management and secure email continue to be essential layers of protection, they do not 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 Centres 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 being a recent 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.
