How Trustwave SpiderLabs Works


Intelligent Adversaries, On Your Side

Our experts have extensive experience using tools and techniques that rival the ingenuity of today’s advanced attackers and their methods allowing us to replicate the types of attacks your business needs to defend itself against. Our continual, impassioned research and experience investigating real world attacks allow us to anticipate tomorrow's threats. We apply those insights to Trustwave services to enable proactive threat and vulnerability management for our customers. Our security testing unearths exactly how adversaries think and act, allowing us to demonstrate how an attacker gains unauthorized access to your businesses' sensitive systems and data, so you know exactly where to focus your investment and time in protecting against actual intrusions.

Our Digital Forensics Team Investigates Data Breaches

Responding to a data-loss incident quickly and in an organized manner is paramount in containing a breach, limiting exposure, stemming losses and preserving evidence. The costs of such an incident include not only lost data and potential fines but also brand damage and embarrassment, plus time and resources spent cleaning up the mess. Our digital forensic investigators determine the root cause of breaches and properly collect, handle and maintain the chain-of-custody of evidence to support litigation should you choose to pursue it. And like we have for countless other businesses, we can help you respond efficiently to manage the ramifications of a data compromise. Our expert investigators are also available to lend their expertise in training your staff to react accordingly to a security breach.

We Help You Fortify Your Applications And Products

Close to four out of five IT professionals admit to being pressured to roll out insecure projects, including applications and new products. You probably understand the risks inherent in going to market with a potentially vulnerable product. You want to be proactive to protect not only your organization but also your customers and partners. Our range of security testing and review services make sure you’ve done your due diligence wherever you might be in the product development life-cycle.

Innovative Research Is At Our Core

Our world-renowned security research team studies attackers’ latest techniques to better understand both what’s happening now and what methods and vectors will challenge businesses next. The team makes Trustwave services and products more effective by analyzing recent attacks, threats and vulnerabilities, and then creating update detection rules for dozens of Trustwave solutions. In addition to their daily duties investigating malware, web clients and servers, email, databases, applications and major vulnerabilities, our researchers are sought-after speakers, trusted media sources, published authors and leaders of major industry projects.

Threat Intelligence Powers Our Services

Enhanced by our applied research and experiences from the field, Trustwave’s large, global client footprint offers us unmatched visibility into security threats. We gain key insights from our analysis of hundreds of data breach investigations, threat intelligence from our global security operations centers, telemetry from security technologies and industry-leading security research. Finally, we make Trustwave managed services more effective by feeding them with our proprietary threat intelligence.

Our Experts Are Yours

Trustwave offers you access to our personal information security advisors, serving as your one-on-one contacts to keep your business safer and help ensure that you have the services, technologies and tools you need to meet your future business goals. For example, maybe you don't have the resources to build an internal security testing team for all of your applications, databases and networks. Trustwave augments your internal security resources by providing a combination of tools-based testing with the expertise of the industry’s top penetration testers to provide a range of options to identify vulnerabilities so you can better manage them.

We Hire Top Talent
