Trustwave today announced that industry analyst firm International Data Corporation (IDC) has named it a Leader in the IDC MarketScape: Asia/Pacific Managed Security Services 2018 report.
The report assessed and compared 19 organisations that offer managed security services in the Asia Pacific region and was based on several parameters including comprehensiveness of service offerings, portfolio benefits, delivery model, market execution, cost competitiveness, platform capabilities and customer services.
Trustwave has moved into the leader position from the major player category in the previous year through aggressive regional expansion, a threat intelligence-led approach for delivering higher-value security services, and connectivity support across the data center and cloud.
"Demand for managed security services continues to spike as organizations face arduous struggles to detect advanced persistent threats while contending with new malware strains and exploitable vulnerabilities each day," says Trustwave APJ general manager Lee Chiang Toh.
"Our position in IDC's report reflects significant strides we made and continue to make in the Asia Pacific region and globally helping businesses combat threats and strengthen their security postures by providing a managed security services portfolio backed by our security expertise."
