Trustwave gobbles up Application Security, gorges itself on tech

Fighting cybercrime, protecting data. Yo!

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Data security biz Trustwave has acquired fellow data security provider Application Security, a startup that specialises in automated database security scanning technologies.

Financial terms of the deal, announced on Monday, were undisclosed.

Privately-held Application Security develops security software for relational databases and big data stores that helps its enterprise customers uncover critical configuration mistakes and other toxic combinations of settings that could lead to denial-of-service attacks, unauthorised data modification or data breaches.

Trustwave said acquiring Application Security will allow it to enhance its existing range of corporate compliance services as well as developing technologies to protect high-value data, and reduce security risks.

Trustwave plans to integrate Application Security's DbProtect and AppDetectivePRO products into its portfolio of information security, compliance management and threat intelligence products and services. Application Security's technology will be used to augment Trustwave’s existing managed security services as well as providing the combined firm will the ability to extend protection of data and management of threats across endpoints, networks, applications and databases.

"By joining forces with Application Security, Trustwave can help customers strengthen security across their environment—from the network, applications, Web, and down to the data itself—so they can more effectively fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce security risks,” said Trustwave chairman and chief exec Robert J. McCullen in a canned statement. ®
