Sure to offer Trustwave Managed Security Services in the Channel Islands and Isle of Man

Powered by Trustwave: Sure strengthens cybersecurity capabilities as organisations contend with advanced adversarial tactics and a shifting threat landscape.

Trustwave, a leading cybersecurity and managed security services provider, and Sure, a leading telecommunications provider serving the Channel Islands and Isle of Man , today announced a partnership to offer Trustwave Managed Security Services and other cybersecurity solutions to help organisations combat cyber threats, protect data and reduce security risk. The alliance addresses data sovereignty and other challenges organisations face to help ensure offshore data is properly housed, handled and protected.

Trustwave Managed Security Services offer a viable path for Sure customers to address advanced information security threats while alleviating the pressures created by resource constraints, skills shortages, compliance requirements and the rapid adoption of new technologies. As a key element of the partnership, Trustwave architected and developed a platform that will be deployed within Sure’s Channel Island data centres providing a service that analyses and correlates customer data against known and unknown threats while monitoring and identifying incidences as they happen.

“Our alliance with Sure leverages our expertise in delivering world-class managed security services to detect, protect and remediate persistent attacks from adversaries who are invariably refining techniques to gain access to an organisation’s critical assets,” said Barry O’Connell, General Manager, Europe, Middle East & Africa at Trustwave.

“We look forward to working with Sure to help businesses solve these complex security challenges.”

Trustwave Managed Security Services are delivered through a global network of Advanced Security Operation Centers (ASOCs) with a centre located in London. These centres identify, track and collect cybersecurity threat intelligence and benefit from the capabilities of Trustwave SpiderLabs, a renowned team of ethical hackers, threat hunters, security researchers and incident responders that spearhead immediate action as security events emerge. These highly skilled practitioners are grouped together based on industry specific proficiency and experience resulting in intimate knowledge of client environments and response playbooks for any given threat situation.

“The threat landscape continues to rapidly shift, especially in regions that have distinctive data protection challenges because of industries served such as professional and financial services,” stated Ian Kelly, Chief Executive Officer at Sure.

“Our partnership with Trustwave will further cement Sure’s position as a leading provider of offshore security services by offering businesses with highly-advanced cybersecurity capabilities that scale as needed to address evolving threats and regulatory requirements--capabilities most would find impossible to achieve with given resources.”
