Trustwave Achieves CREST Vulnerability Assessment Accreditation

Trustwave, a managed security services provider focused on managed detection and response, announced CREST, the internationally recognized professional certification board, has certified it for its vulnerability assessment services.

CREST conducted an in-depth assessment of business processes, data security, and vulnerability assessment methodologies in order to award Trustwave with its international accreditation and certification.

“This latest CREST certification further solidifies the industry-leading capabilities of the elite Trustwave SpiderLabs team,” said Ed Williams, EMEA director, Trustwave SpiderLabs. “The expertise of our world-class talent coupled with award-winning threat intelligence and cutting-edge technology in the Trustwave Fusion Platform gives us the unique ability to identify and remediate cyber risk for organizations around the world across disparate IoT devices, IT/OT networks, and cloud environments with precision and speed.”

Exploiting vulnerabilities is a major initial access vector for threat actors and ransomware-based attacks. Trustwave has seen an increase in malware attacks in recent months where exploited vulnerabilities could have been detected through routine assessments. Trustwave encourages organizations that handle sensitive data to conduct regular vulnerability assessments to optimize risk management and close security gaps across the business.

Vulnerability assessments are automated assessments aimed at identifying and quantifying known security vulnerabilities within an environment to provide an estate-wide view of an organization’s security posture, its weaknesses, as well as provide risk remediation. Combining regular vulnerability assessment with the Trustwave Fusion Platform allows management of assets that can then be used to further mature penetration testing.
