Singtel integrates cybersecurity capabilities under Trustwave banner

Wed 5 Dec 2018
FYI, this story is more than a year old

Singtel has announced it has pooled the cybersecurity capabilities, technologies and resources of Singtel, Optus, 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 range of managed security services, consulting, education and leading-edge technologies to help organisations worldwide contend with rapidly evolving external and internal threats.

The integration enables Trustwave to harness the synergies of Singtel’s global cybersecurity business, revenue, capabilities 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 Centres  (ASOCs) supported by its 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 recognised by analysts.  

Trustwave chief executive officer Arthur Wong says, “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.”

“Customers benefit by having a security partner with global reach and intelligence, offering around-the-clock monitoring, detection and eradication of threats in addition to regional security expertise necessary for addressing global threats and localised attack campaigns.”

As part of the integration, Trustwave has redesigned its logo, giving it a modern look with new brand identity and colour scheme, and launched a new corporate website.

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 managed 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 challenges.  
  • 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 delivering, selling, marketing and supporting Trustwave cybersecurity solutions and managed security services. The added personnel complements ten interlinked Advanced Security Operations Centres responsible for delivering continuous threat monitoring, detection and threat elimination along with threat intelligence to ensure organisations 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 optimising technologies from many of the world’s top minds in cybersecurity. Options for earning industry recognised 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 organisations 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 standard (PCI DSS) pioneer.
