Trustwave has launched a mobile security practice to offer enterprise compliance and risk services to address the challenges and complexities of mobility.

In addition to its SpiderLabs services, this includes: the Trustwave Enterprise Mobility Assessment Services that it says helps businesses identify gaps and potential risk exposure; and BYOD ‘Self-Sealing' Network Protection, which integrates network access control, a secure web gateway, data loss prevention and system information and event management (SIEM) to identify mobile devices on the network, and enforce BYOD and data access policies, according to the company.

Finally, the Trustwave SpiderLabs Services for Mobile contains a team of threat researchers, forensic investigators and ethical hackers to help businesses test security and identify vulnerabilities in BYOD deployments, mobile applications and mobile point-of-sale systems.

Leo Cole, general manager of security solutions at Trustwave, said: “Our new mobile security practice allows us to serve as a trusted advisor to our customers as they create a more holistic approach to mobility that includes risk assessments and proven technologies, that enables them to improve their risk and compliance posture, deploy secure mobile applications to their customers, and protect their network from emerging vulnerabilities and threats.”
