Trustwave Acquisition Bolsters Data Protection | Trustwave

Acquisition of Application Security, Inc. Expands Trustwave's Leadership in Protecting Data, Managing Compliance and Mitigating Data-Centric Vulnerabilities

CHICAGO - November 11, 2013 - Trustwave today announced the acquisition of data security provider Application Security, Inc. The company's automated database security scanning technologies strengthen Trustwave's ability to help organizations protect high-value data, reduce security risks and achieve compliance with mandates and regulations.

Application Security, Inc. pioneered the research and development of security software for relational databases and big data stores-helping businesses and government agencies uncover critical configuration mistakes, access control issues, missing patches, or any toxic combination of settings that could lead to denial-of-service attacks, unauthorized data modification and data breaches.

Trustwave will continue to develop, support and offer both Application Security, Inc. products, DbProtect and AppDetectivePRO, and will integrate and use those products throughout the Trustwave portfolio of information security, compliance management and threat intelligence offerings. The acquisition gives Trustwave the ability to:

  • Secure data in more places-Application Security, Inc. deepens Trustwave's data and advanced threat protection capabilities, augmenting Trustwave's existing managed security services and extending protection of data and management of threats across endpoints, networks, applications and databases.
  • Improve compliance management-Application Security, Inc. enriches Trustwave compliance auditing and management services by streamlining and automating the process of testing and monitoring databases so that businesses can improve the way they address the requirements of regulations and mandates including PCI DSS, HIPAA and SOX.
  • Mitigate more data-centric vulnerabilities-Application Security, Inc. enhances Trustwave's penetration testing and vulnerability management services, with additional database scanning and testing capabilities that offer customers more comprehensive vulnerability scanning, logging and monitoring across their networks, applications and databases.

 

"Attacks from cybercriminals, malicious insiders and other threats have increased the spotlight on the security of high-value data and the importance of protecting it no matter where it lives or where it's going," said Trustwave Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Robert J. McCullen. "Disparate products and manual tools and processes just can't keep up with the pace of today's threats. By joining forces with Application Security, Trustwave can help customers strengthen security across their environment-from the network, applications, Web, and down to the data itself-so they can more effectively fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce security risks."

Founded in 2002, Application Security, Inc. was, until the completion of the acquisition, a privately-held company headquartered in New York. The acquisition has closed, and financial terms were not disclosed.
