Trustwave has unveiled a new cloud native platform designed to offer enhanced cyber security products and managed services to Singaporean customers.

Under the banner of Trustwave Fusion platform, the offering runs in-country in a move designed to adhere to Singapore data sovereignty laws and regulations.

The cyber security division of Singtel has labelled the platform as the “cornerstone” of its products, managed security services and other cyber security offerings in the local market.

“Enterprises today are challenged not only by skilled adversaries adept at capitalising on the smallest vulnerability or gap in defences, they are also contending with stricter regulations on how customer data is handled and stored,” said Toh Lee Chiang, general manager of Asia Pacific and Japan at Trustwave.

“These restrictions can have adverse effects by limiting technologies and techniques used to protect data and actions that can be taken should a breach occur. By offering the Trustwave Fusion platform through a local instance, organisations are ensured access to leading-edge security resources regardless of regulatory pressures.”

Fusion connects Singapore enterprises and government institutions to a security cloud composed of the Trustwave data lake, advanced analytics, actionable threat intelligence and a portfolio of products and security services.

In addition, the platform provides a direct channel to Trustwave SpiderLabs, the provider's team of security practitioners.

Once connected, the platform unifies Trustwave technologies, services and security expertise onto a single application accessed and controlled by any device including desktop, tablet or mobile phone.

“The Trustwave Fusion platform is the latest example of how Trustwave continues to push cyber security innovation and make security intuitive, scalable and customer value-driven,” added Cathy Huang, associate research director, IDC.

As reported by Channel Asia, Singtel unveiled plans to integrate all security offerings under the Trustwave brand, bringing together Optus and NCS capabilities to create a cyber powerhouse.

Specifically, the amalgamation will see a coming together of Singtel, Optus, Trustwave and NCS from a “capabilities, technologies and resources” perspective.

Key offerings will centre around managed security services, consulting and education, leveraging the footprint of Singtel from a business and revenue perspective across the Americas, Europe and Asia Pacific.
