Trustwave, the leading provider of on-demand data security and payment card industry compliance management solutions to businesses and organizations throughout the world, announces the expanded security effectiveness of its managed IDS, IPS, and UTM services by joining Endeavor Security’s FirstLight signature library with Trustwave’s asset-based vulnerability correlation technology. Endeavor Security is a leader in intrusion detection and prevention technologies.
Endeavor Security’s global decoy grid and leading-edge signature library equip Trustwave’s signature operations team with the most current intelligence regarding in-the-wild threats. Trustwave’s proprietary technology enables IDS and IPS defense solutions to intelligently adapt to these new threats, modifying detection and prevention policies to any asset, including those with identified vulnerabilities. Trustwave’s UTM appliance delivers a variety of services including Firewall, IPS, Anti-Virus, Web Content Filtering and VPN services, managed and monitored 24 x 7 by Trustwave’s security experts. All of these services can be utilized concurrently to provide the best possible defense against online hazards attempting to access consumers' personal and other critical data.
This intelligence is also integrated into Trustwave’s recently-introduced high-speed IPS solution. As a truly adaptive intrusion prevention solution, Trustwave’s high-speed IPS appliance continually scans and monitors the network and applies that knowledge to the enabled protection signatures. This technique dramatically increases performance while reducing false positives.
“Trustwave’s knowledge of compliance and incident response makes them particularly well suited to manage global security operations” says Chris Jordan, CEO of Endeavor Security. “The Trustwave UTM device and managed service now has a knowledgebase of attacks that is second to none and will greatly enhance an organization’s security posture.”
“The signature library of an IDS, IPS or UTM managed service is a critical component in creating a secure network environment,” says Robert J. McCullen, chairman and CEO of Trustwave. “Continually staying ahead of security threats and vulnerabilities enables Trustwave to provide our clients with the highest level of security available.”
