We are pleased to announce that Singapore Telecommunications Limited (Singtel), Asia’s leading communications company, has completed its acquisition of Trustwave. This acquisition is a positive event for our customers, partners and employees and represents an important milestone in our company’s evolution as it strengthens Singtel’s information security capabilities and bolsters Trustwave’s ability to expand its leadership in managed security services globally.
The company will continue to operate under the industry-leading Trustwave brand – remaining headquartered in Chicago with offices worldwide – as a standalone, strategic business unit within Singtel Group Enterprise. Our mission of helping you fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce risk, remains unchanged, as we continue to operate globally, supporting our customers and partners in more than 96 countries, without reduction in our services, technology portfolio or support.
Joining Singtel gives us the ability to leverage its global presence and resources to accelerate worldwide adoption of Trustwave managed security services and technologies. With the backing of Singtel, we will continue to innovate, deliver and expand our global leadership in cyber security services and technologies.
For example, Singtel brings a wealth of data from its massive, Asia Pacific network backbone and Advanced Security Operations Center (ASOC) that Trustwave plans to use to feed additional threat intelligence into its managed security services. Joining Singtel also increases the collective managed security services capacity of Trustwave by expanding its global footprint from six global security operations centers (SOCs) to eight including the Singapore SOC and one planned in Australia. Trustwave will also leverage Singtel’s strategic industry partnerships to deliver additional advanced, third-party services to customers.
I’d like to personally thank you for your support of Trustwave and our continued relationship. I look forward to taking Trustwave to the next level, backed by the support of Singtel.
