Trustwave expands Fusion offering into Pacific region
Tue, 18th Jul 2023

Trustwave, a global cybersecurity and managed security services provider, has announced the expansion of its globally federated, cloud-native Fusion platform into the Pacific region.

Trustwave continues to grow its investment and commitment to the Pacific region and with the Fusion expansion, Pacific client data will now be retained onshore in Australia, according to the company.

Trustwave's Fusion platform is designed to provide enterprises with visibility and control over how security resources are provisioned, monitored, and managed across any environment.

Additionally, this latest expansion announcement aims to help Trustwave Pacific clients achieve legislative or regulatory compliance requirements that specify data storage within Australia, or have a preference for data retention in Australia.

Jason Whyte, General Manager for Pacific, Trustwave, says, "We are committed to continuing to grow our investment in the Pacific region to drive success for our clients and allow them to conduct business securely.

"Our unique combination of world-class SpiderLabs security talent and our market-leading Fusion platform enables us to meet the strenuous security needs of global enterprises.

"With our Fusion expansion, we can continue to partner closely with our Pacific clients to address the changing nature of cyberattacks, while keeping their data close to home."

While all Pacific client data ingested into the Fusion platform will remain within Australia, clients will still benefit from the actionable insights of Trustwave's global SpiderLabs Threat Intelligence and scale of its leading-edge security operations centre (SOC) teams, the company states.

The Trustwave Fusion platform offers a single view of threats, technology management, vulnerabilities, and perceived risks across an organisations entire environment.

Whyte says, "In response to market demand, we're proud to be able to fill a glaring gap in the industry by delivering cybersecurity services that are infused with global threat intelligence and can operate on a global scale, all while providing local data storage.

"Trustwave's co-managed SOC and managed detection and response (MDR) services, which are globally recognised in numerous analyst reports, allow it to detect what others cant find.

"Through its managed security services, Trustwave is positioned to respond better and faster with a wider picture of potential threats and attacks in client environments, ultimately allowing teams to make more informed decisions sooner to protect their organisations."

For companies focused on measuring and managing risk, Trustwave also offers managed security testing (MST), which is a subscription-based managed vulnerability scanning and penetration testing service.

As a subscription-based offering, Trustwave enables its MST clients to continuously identify vulnerabilities and findings that can lead to data compromise in networks, applications, and databases.

Additionally, Trustwave Fusion utilises AWS Cloud in Sydney and is built using IRAP-assessed AWS services. Trustwave also maintains ISO27001 and SOC Type II compliance certification across its organisation.

In a recent IDC report, Trustwave was named a Major Player in the Asia/Pacific Professional Security Services Vendor Assessment MarketScape. In the report, IDC Research Manager Christian Fam, said that, "Trustwave leverages its amalgamation of technologies and resources to focus on delivering outcome-based solutions for security operations that are centred around its managed security services, professional security services, and networking capabilities within the Asia/Pacific region."
