ISG recognized Trustwave as a Rising Star in Managed Security Services for Large Accounts in its recently released Provider Lens™ Quadrant Report on Cybersecurity Solutions & Services report. The ISG research evaluates strengths, challenges, and competitive differentiators across cybersecurity providers and solutions, and serves as a resource for IT decision makers tasked with improving the cyber resilience of their organizations.
“Trustwave’s experts and security operations centers provide a combination of automated analysis by a cloud engine with human analysis for advanced threat triage, threat hunting, reverse engineering, and other activities,” said ISG Principal Analyst Gowtham Kumar Sampath. “The investment in SpiderLabs helps in gathering and utilizing global threat intelligence.”
ISG's key areas of focus while assessing managed security providers included cloud security, intelligent security operations centers, managed detection, and response (MDR), and investigative cyber analytics.
In its report, ISG provided an overview of Trustwave’s unique strengths and innovative solutions within the MSS market, noting our:
Comprehensive offerings and platform: Trustwave Managed Detection and Response is an enterprise-proven solution that combines a cloud-native security operations platform, integrated threat hunting, elite cyber experts, and SpiderLabs global threat intelligence. The Trustwave Fusion platform is purpose built to provide deep visibility, technologies, and advanced security expertise.
Federated security operations centers delivering effective cybersecurity: Trustwave’s security operations centers have extended capabilities for advanced threat detection and real-time incident response, and containment and remediation, in addition to security device monitoring and alerting. The centers combine automated analysis by a cloud engine with human analysis for advanced threat triage, threat hunting, reverse engineering, and other activities.
Elite security experts: The SpiderLabs team at Trustwave has more than 250 specialists, including security and penetration testers, incident responders, forensic investigators, malware reversers, security researchers, published authors, and sought-after speakers.
"Security issues are taking a toll on enterprises, with the continuous emergence of new threats, requiring smarter ways to manage security concerns,” the report stated. “The managed security services market in the U.S. is driven by the growing adoption of secure access service edge (SASE) and zero-trust access to protect data and control access to information. Over the last year, the demand for cloud security, data security, and IoT/OT security have increased among enterprises in an effort to respond immediately to security threats.
Within its research, ISG found that there continues to be room for the adoption of new technology and service capabilities as MSS grows in demand. A few of the developments that ISG outlined include:
Growth of MDR and XDR: Most providers have integrated their offerings with managed detection and response (MDR) and extended detection and response (XDR) services and are partnering with MDR platform providers. These offerings include advanced technologies such as AI, machine learning, and behavior analytics for enabling proactive security monitoring, alarm validation, security orchestration, and automation.
Innovative and sophisticated offerings: As remote working has become the new normal, MSS focuses on helping clients with governance, risk and compliance (GRC); next-gen identity and access controls, remote access, threat management, and endpoint protection.
Demand for skills and talent: One of the key factors impacting the MSS market is the lack of talented specialists that can manage the current challenging requirements. Enterprises and providers realize that technology alone might not solve the problem; they require human-led expertise to address sophisticated threats.
Intelligence-led cyber centers: Providers are investing in innovating their cyber centers or defense centers with superior and next- generation capabilities in threat intelligence, adversary simulations, incident response services, and behavior analytics.
