Trustwave Named a Leader in Managed Security Services by Independent Research Firm

CHICAGO - March 29, 2012 - Trustwave, a leading provider of cloud-based compliance and information security solutions, today announced it has been named a "Leader" in the March 2012 "Forrester Wave™: Managed Security Services: North America, Q1 2012." Trustwave was one of the top vendors "that matter most" that Forrester invited to participate in this evaluation to assess the state of the managed security services provider (MSSP) market.

"Trustwave has one of the industry's most comprehensive security portfolios and one of the broadest suites of managed security services available on the market today," said Leo Cole, Chief Marketing Officer, Trustwave. "We believe that recognition as a Leader in the Forrester Wave for Managed Security Services validates the innovation and work we have done to reduce the complexity of protecting data and help organizations focus on what they do best: running their business - while we run their security."

"Unlike many managed security service providers who deliver just foundational security, we provide our customers with higher-value, unified managed security solutions spanning compliance, application, network and data security solutions -- enhanced by Trustwave SpiderLabs' threat intelligence," added Cole. "We continually improve our managed security offering. We're excited about our acquisition of M86 Security as we will add their Secure Web Gateway to our broad portfolio of managed security services in 2012."

Forrester analysts evaluated nine managed security services providers who have a substantial client base in North America against 60 criteria to help organizations select the right managed security services provider for their requirements. Some of the vendor evaluation criteria for being included in the report were: a complete suite of managed security services, a strong presence in North America, significant interest from Forrester customers and substantial annual managed security services revenues, among other requirements.
