Comprehensive Managed Security Strategy to Augment Nitel’s Security Portfolio

CHICAGO – April 18, 2018 – Nitel, a leading nationwide next-generation technology services provider, announced a newly forged relationship with Trustwave to deliver a suite of managed security services to its nationwide business customers. The new services expand Nitel’s security capabilities, offering a natural complement to its existing managed next-generation firewall, SD-Security and unified threat management offerings.

Trustwave is a leading cybersecurity and managed security services provider that helps businesses fight cybercrime, protect data and reduce risk. Using threat intelligence paired with elite in-house security experts, Trustwave helps businesses assess risks and proactively protect networks and data against evolving attack methods and rapidly expanding threat landscape.

Nitel will offer a comprehensive strategy built around key offerings from Trustwave to include managed security information and event management (SIEM), security testing and incident response. Customers using the Managed Security Testing service will undergo penetration testing by “ethical hackers” to identify vulnerabilities and report the consequences of exploitation.  The SIEM service will provide real-time event correlation, analysis, alerts and auditing with threat intelligence provided by Trustwave’s industry-recognized SpiderLabs®, an elite team of ethical hackers, researchers and forensic investigators, to help ensure customers stay on top of threat and compliance issues.

“While firewalls continue to get better at protecting customers, threats are becoming more widespread, complex and damaging.  Customers today need a multi-threaded approach to prevention, detection and mitigation, which includes the use of advanced technologies augmented by the expertise of a market leader like Trustwave,” said Todd Miller, vice president of product, Nitel. “And with Nitel, customers have a single provider to monitor the end-to-end health, performance and security of their entire technology environment.”

The Trustwave Partner Program delivers one of the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio of security products and services addressing business needs in the areas of threat, vulnerability and compliance management. In addition to security solutions, the program offers valuable resources to help partners launch sales and marketing campaigns and highly-accessible support to help ensure ongoing needs of customers are met. Trustwave offers multiple levels of engagement to give channel partners a wide range of collaboration options from simple referrals to joint planning for the development of mutually beneficial relationships.

Nitel formally announced this partnership Tuesday at the Channel Partners Expo in Las Vegas. To learn more about Nitel’s security offerings, reach out to a channel manager or contact us.
