Singtel consolidates security capabilities

Singtel has combined the security technologies and resources of the company and its subsidiaries Optus, Trustwave and NCS into the Trustwave brand.

The integration will allow the new Trustwave to harness Singtel's global cyber security capabilities and team spanning Asia-Pacific, Europe and the Americas.

The combined entity now has around 2,000 employees and a global network of ten security operations centers. As well as more than 10,000 managed security services customers.

As part of the reorganization, Trustwave has meanwhile created a separate global Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and risk management arm, and has combined the training and education assets from Singtel's cyber security businesses into a single advanced security training and continued education program.

“Uniting the security assets and deep expertise of Singtel, Optus, Trustwave and NCS under one brand and single vision – what we call the new Trustwave – is a pivotal milestone for our customers, partners, employees and company,” Trustwave CEO Arthur Wong said.

“Trustwave is well-positioned to further its role as a recognised leader in cyber security and managed security services, areas vital for effective security programmes as enterprises accelerate their digital transformation.”
