Trustwave launches cloud-based cybersecurity platform for Singapore enterprises

Trustwave, the cybersecurity division of Singtel, has launched the Trustwave Fusion platform, a cloud-native platform that delivers its cybersecurity offerings in Singapore.

The platform enables powerful cybersecurity capabilities to address a constantly evolving threat landscape while running completely in-country, adhering to Singapore data sovereignty laws and regulations.

“Enterprises today are challenged not only by skilled adversaries adept at capitalising on the smallest vulnerability or gap in defences, they are also contending with stricter regulations on how customer data is handled and stored,” said Toh Lee Chiang, general manager Asia Pacific and Japan at Singtel’s Trustwave. “These restrictions can have adverse effects by limiting technologies and techniques used to protect data and actions that can be taken should a breach occur. By offering the Trustwave Fusion platform through a local instance, organisations are ensured access to leading-edge security resources regardless of regulatory pressures.”

The Trustwave Fusion platform connects Singapore enterprises and government institutions to a security cloud composed of the Trustwave data lake, advanced analytics, actionable threat intelligence and a deep portfolio of products and security services. In addition, the platform provides a direct channel to Trustwave SpiderLabs, the company’s renowned team of security practitioners.

Once connected, the platform unifies Trustwave technologies, services and security expertise onto a single application accessed and controlled by any device including desktop, tablet or mobile phone. Organisations then have the ability to manage security programmes, which includes asset discovery to threat detection and eradication to how resources are provisioned and scaled using simple point and click navigation.

“The Trustwave Fusion platform is the latest example of how Trustwave continues to push
cybersecurity innovation and make security intuitive, scalable and customer value-driven,” added Cathy Huang, associate research director, Services and Security, IDC Asia Pacific.

In related news, the Southern Cross NEXT subsea cable, part owned by Singtel, has just been green-lit for construction. Due for completion by January 2022, the new 13,483km, 72Tbps system will connect New Zealand and Australia, the Pacific Islands.
