MSSP Trustwave Unveils Online Learning System for Channel Partners


Trustwave, a Top 100 MSSP that provides compliance, threat and vulnerability management services, has launched Academy for Partners -- an online learning system available to the company's channel partners.

With Academy for Partners, Trustwave partners can complete formal training courses to better understand customer security and compliance challenges, according to the company. The online learning system helps Trustwave partners identify potential new sales opportunities, the business said, and gain technical expertise that they can use to effectively deliver the company's managed security services.

In addition, Trustwave has introduced Partner Hub, a self-service portal that provides the company's partners with access to marketing materials, sales information, technical support and product documentation. The portal also ensures access to case studies, research and security reports from SpiderLabs, Trustwave's team of ethical hackers, forensic investigators and security researchers.

Trustwave Partner Program Details

Trustwave's channel partner program enables service providers, value-added resellers (VARs) and other organizations to deliver Trustwave security products and technologies to their customers. The program offers three partnership tiers:

  • Silver: Provides access to online resources and support options.
  • Gold: Provides access to internal Trustwave resources, along with sales and marketing tools.
  • Platinum: Provides access to sales, marketing and technical resources and emphasizes joint planning for the development of mutually beneficial relationships.

Trustwave offers cloud and managed security services to help businesses combat cybercrime, protect data and eliminate security risks. The company ranked sixth on MSSP Alert's "Top 100 MSSPs of 2017" list, and today, more than 3 million businesses across 96 countries leverage the Trustwave TrustKeeper cloud and managed security services portal.

Trustwave to Expand Its Global Headquarters

Trustwave has been in growth mode. For instance, the company in June announced plans to increase the size of its global headquarters by 65 percent. With the global headquarters expansion, Trustwave will create additional room for more than 700 Chicago-based employees by the end of the year, the company said at the time.

Furthermore, Trustwave intends to hire more sales, engineering, security research and operations talent to keep pace with its growth. The company currently employs 1,700 workers globally, and approximately one-third of these employees operate out of the business' Chicago headquarters.

Trustwave is a privately held information security company that is owned and operated by Asian communications provider Singtel Telecommunications, which reached an agreement to acquire the business in April 2015. The company provides a variety of security products, including application, endpoint and network security offerings.
