Trustwave today announced that Gartner, Inc., a leading information and
technology and advisory company, has placed Trustwave in the Leaders
quadrant in the 2019
Gartner “Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services, Worldwide,”1
a report that assessed 14 managed security service providers (MSSPs).
Trustwave’s position in the Leaders quadrant has improved its position
on both the completeness of vision and ability to execute axes compared
to the previous report.
“We feel our improved placement in the Leaders quadrant compared to the
previous report reflects our innovation in threat detection and response
capabilities as well as service delivery excellence we have brought to
organizations to help combat increasingly advanced cyber threats,” said
Arthur Wong, Chief Executive Officer of Trustwave. “From our view, this
recognition recognizes how Trustwave strives to be a trusted partner to
our clients through leading-edge security services that scale, and
unparalleled global threat intelligence.”
Significant Trustwave managed security services milestones in 2018
Integration of global cybersecurity resources — Trustwave
parent company Singtel pooled the cybersecurity capabilities and
resources of Singtel, Optus, Trustwave and NCS, into a single global
identity operating under the Trustwave brand. This integration formed
one of the industry’s most comprehensive global cybersecurity
companies offering a complete range of managed security services as
well as consulting services and proprietary technologies to help
organizations contend with rapidly evolving external and internal
Trustwave SpiderLabs Fusion Center debut — Trustwave opened
the Trustwave SpiderLabs Fusion Center, a leading-edge cyber command
center with the ability to monitor for, detect, and immediately kill
threats anywhere inside an organization’s environment down to an
individual computer or endpoint device, a feat unprecedented in
managed security. The center employs a unique Point of Delivery (POD)
system where security practitioners are grouped based on their
expertise in technical environments and specific industries to counter
cybercriminals with similar attributes.
New Managed Security Services — Trustwave bolstered its
Managed Detection and Response (MDR) for Endpoints service and
capabilities by forging an alliance with Cybereason. The
collaboration added artificial intelligence powered data analytics and
built-in forensic abilities to correlate data behavior with potential
threats. Trustwave also expanded its alliance with Palo Alto Networks
by adding support for their next-generation firewalls, Traps™,
GlobalProtect cloud services and Cortex XDR, a new cross-environment
detection and response platform.
New distribution and technology partnerships — Trustwave
bolstered its channel partner ecosystem for offering managed security
services to markets worldwide. These additions added to an already
impressive roster of partners ranging from telecommunication and
service providers to third-party technology alliances with Akamai,
Carbon Black, Cybereason, Fortinet and Palo Alto Networks among many
“I’m proud of our team and the continued push to address complex
cybersecurity challenges our clients face. Taking the fight to
adversaries head-on has been our aim, and with Gartner’s recognition, we
believe we are hitting our objectives,” added Chris Schueler, senior
vice president of managed security services at Trustwave.
According to the Gartner, “The MSS market is mature, with an estimated
market size of $10.7 billion in 2018. The market continues to adapt to
the challenges facing organizations around: An increasingly complex IT
environment that includes SaaS and IaaS, and the expansion into
nontraditional IT domains; The growing hostile external landscape; The
ongoing issues of a lack of talent and expertise in security; The needs
of less mature organizations that are likely to have only ever
implemented preventative security controls.”
Managed Security Services help businesses proactively address
advanced information security threats while alleviating the pressures
created by resource constraints, skills shortages, compliance
requirements and the rapid adoption of new technologies. The services
deliver the security businesses need without requiring them to install
and manage technologies themselves, to retain and train staff to run and
configure those systems, or to worry about aging levels of protection.
By relying on Trustwave as their trusted security partner, businesses
can focus more on their priorities and core competencies.
In this report, Gartner evaluated MSSPs on several criteria to assess
their completeness of vision and ability to execute. The ability to
execute criteria included product or service, overall viability
(Business Unit, Financial, Strategy, Organization), sales
execution/pricing, market responsiveness/record, marketing execution,
customer experience, and operations. The completeness of vision criteria
included market understanding, marketing strategy, sales strategy,
offering (product) strategy, business model, vertical/industry strategy,
innovation, and geographic strategy.
