Tudor Australia Partners with Trustwave to Offer Security Solutions to Help Businesses Meet Compliance Requirements

SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA (28 October 2010) -  Tudor Australia, a dynamic specialist IT Security value added distributor (VAD), has selected Trustwave's award-winning suite of security solutions to help Australian and New Zealand businesses meet compliance requirements and protect critical data. Trustwave is a leading provider of information security and compliance solutions.

Through this partnership, Tudor Australia will distribute Trustwave's solutions for compliance requirements like the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS). Included in this bundle is access to TrustKeeper, Trustwave's on-demand compliance management service, which detects and alerts customers to security flaws at their network perimeter and provides guidance to address these exploits. It also provides the necessary tools to support on-going compliance including external vulnerability scanning. E-commerce merchants will be provided with Trustwave's full range of SSL certificates, including Extended Validation (EV), to provide security when communicating sensitive information over the Internet such as credit card information.

For businesses requiring additional security services, Tudor Australia will resell Trustwave's leading security technology, including Network Access Control (NAC), Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), WebDefendTM Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Discover Data Loss Prevention. These complimentary security solutions help protect a merchant's network environment, as well as mitigate vulnerabilities. For those customers with limited resources, Tudor Australia will resell Trustwave's managed security services, including managed SIEM and Internal Vulnerability Scanning.

To further secure businesses' network environments and Web applications, customers can engage SpiderLabs, the advanced security team at Trustwave, to perform Penetration testing, or ethical hacking, which will help determine if any vulnerability exists in the network or application layer that needs to be secured.

"We are extremely excited about this partnership and the potential growth it offers our company," said Anton Goldman, director, Tudor Australia. "We now have the ability to take a best of breed, comprehensive PCI security vendor to our various partners who will in turn sell the product and solutions to their large corporate and government customer bases."

"Tudor Australia has a long history of providing only the best solutions to customers across Australia and New Zealand," said Andy Bokor, executive director of EMEA and APAC for Trustwave. "This partnership will allow us to further expand that expertise by providing their customers with leading compliance and security solutions to help protect their network environment and protect critical customer data."

"This is an exciting partnership for Trustwave as it will enable us to provide our industry-leading technology to many more customers throughout Australia and New Zealand," said Sunil Sharma, managing director of Asia Pacific. "We look forward to growing together while helping to protect and secure critical data."
