CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Trustwave today announced that the company was named a Leader in the latest Forrester Research, Inc. evaluation of cybersecurity consulting services in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. The report, The Forrester Wave™: Cybersecurity Consulting Services In Asia Pacific, Q4 20191, included ten vendors in the assessment who were evaluated on 23 individual criteria grouped into three high-level categories including current offering, strategy and market presence.
“Our consulting and professional services are focused on improving digital resilience for our clients,” said Rob Stitch, senior vice president of worldwide consulting and professional services, Trustwave. “As a security pure play with global reach, Trustwave offers a deep portfolio of consulting services and seasoned security experts to address the mounting challenges of an evolving threat landscape. We believe this recognition as a leader in cybersecurity consulting is a testament to our efforts securely enabling digital transformation and accelerating business outcomes for organizations across all industries.”
In our view, the following points represent Trustwave’s differentiators:
- Unrivaled customer satisfaction -- According to the report, Trustwave reference customers “were the most enthusiastic of any that [Forrester] interviewed; they were hard-pressed to find any areas of improvement [for Trustwave].” The report went on to note that “clients lauded Trustwave’s quality, subject-matter expertise, commercial acumen, and depth of understanding of their requirements.”
- Innovative asset-based consulting capabilities --Trustwave Security Colony gives organizations access to a massive repository of information including security best practices, policies, standards and key findings from a culmination of past consulting engagements. This unique offering allows organizations to learn from each other on ways to improve security posture and reduce spending.
- A compelling virtual CISO service -- According to the report, “Trustwave delivers a compelling virtual CISO service, which resonates with customers in heavily regulated environments that don’t have the resources to build their own security teams.” The service, part of Trustwave Security Colony, is designed to make highly experienced top-tier security experts available to organizations for planning, critical decision making and guidance.
According to Forrester, “As threats evolve and digitization becomes more complex, customers look for service providers that have a strong cybersecurity consulting practice vision, innovate with IP and asset-based consulting, and focus on engaging all the way up to executive management. Firms with these capabilities position themselves to deliver robust, effective, and customized offerings to their clients.”
In December 2018, Trustwave acquired renowned Australian cybersecurity consulting company Hivint, including Security Colony, and incorporated its employees and consulting services into Trustwave Consulting and Professional Services.
