Trustwave Takes On Targeted Attacks with New Security Solutions

New and enhanced solutions offer a multi-pronged approach to protect against targeted malware

Trustwave has enhanced its award-winning Secure Web Gateway, Secure Email Gateway, Network Access Control (NAC), Managed Unified Threat Management (UTM) and File Integrity Monitoring products, while also delivering the new Trustwave Vulnerability Manager. These Trustwave solutions prevent malware from entering the environment by detecting attacks through the Web and email, stop the propagation of malware from compromised devices and stop the infection of other devices.

A recent Ponemon study that surveyed more than 2,500 C-level and IT security personnel from around the world, reported that targeted attacks cost enterprises an average of $214,000, with most of the cost related to “forensic investigation, investments in technology and brand recovery costs.
