Trustwave has announced the acquisition of data security vendor Application Security.
Adding automated database security scanning technologies to its product and service offering, Trustwave will continue to develop, support and offer the DbProtect and AppDetectivePRO products to help with compliance, patch management and mitigate data-centric vulnerabilities.
Trustwave said that Application Security’s technologies will enhance Trustwave’s penetration testing and vulnerability management services, with additional database scanning and testing capabilities.
Financial terms of the acquisition, which has already closed, were not disclosed.
Robert J. McCullen, Trustwave chairman and chief executive officer, said: “Disparate products and manual tools and processes just can’t keep up with the pace of today’s threats. 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.”
