MDR market growth fuels Trustwave momentum
The appointments and promotions of top talent to Trustwave’s senior leadership team come during a high-growth period for the managed detection and response (MDR) market.
“MDR is recognized as the next most important advancement in the Managed Security Services (MSS) market, rapidly expanding and demonstrating high double-digit growth,” states Martha Vazquez, senior research analyst at IDC Security Services.
“Trustwave is actively elevating the level of our talent to support our strategic direction and growth, as well as heavily investing in integrating innovative technologies like machine learning and cloud capabilities into our Fusion Platform,” said Trustwave CEO Eric Harmon. “We are combatting the surging advanced threat landscape and answering the market’s need for world-class managed detection and response by continuing to evolve.”
IDC recognizes Trustwave’s strategic direction and MDR investments

IDC states, “Trustwave has indicated a tremendous focus and investment in the Fusion Platform.” According to the IDC Link, “Trustwave sees the cloud-native platform playing a critical role in its broader vision in the cloud security services space as the aggregator of cloud platforms from a security perspective, connecting ‘all of the relevant dots’ in the multi-cloud world.”
