Trustwave Mobile Security Practice Aims at BYOD Businesses
The practice offers enterprise compliance and risk services aimed at protecting networks, data and devices from malware and data loss.Network data and security solutions specialist Trustwave unveiled a mobile security practice designed to help businesses embrace mobility and bring-your-own-device (BYOD) programs while maintaining compliance, managing emerging security risks and protecting corporate networks and data. The practice offers enterprise compliance and risk services as well as an integrated, technology suite aimed at protecting networks, data and devices from malware and data loss. The practice also includes Trustwave SpiderLabs services, delivered by a team of ethical hackers, designed to expose vulnerabilities and threats on mobile devices, systems and applications. "Mobility and BYOD are no longer theoretical—even for enterprises that think they've banned them—and the risk isn't confined to the devices themselves," Wendy Nather, research director for the enterprise security practice at IT analytics firm 451 Research, said in a statement. "They affect the entire organization from the standpoints of security and compliance. Trustwave understands this, and treats mobility not as an exception, but as the new business rule." The mobile security practice includes Enterprise Mobility Assessment Services, which consists of compliance and risk management experts that help businesses identify gaps and potential risk exposure and establish that pragmatic balance of productivity and security through customizable professional services, including risk assessment, policy development, architecture review and security awareness education.
Trustwave SpiderLabs, a team of threat researchers and forensic investigators, offers a suite of testing services specifically for mobile devices, applications and systems. These services are designed to help businesses test security and identify vulnerabilities in BYOD deployments, mobile applications and mobile point-of-sale systems.
