Trustwave, a Chicago-based managed security services provider focused on managed detection and response, has announced the global availability of Managed Vendor Risk Assessment (MVRA), the company’s cyber supply chain risk assessment solution for enterprises and SMBs.
“Now more than ever, supply chain risk is a critical component of your organization’s cyber resilience,” said Nick Ellsmore, Global Head of Strategy, Consulting & Professional Services at Trustwave. “With our ability to rapidly scale, organizations around the globe can assess a large number of vendors with deep expertise and consistent measurement without a high cost.”
The service encompasses both an automated and specialist-led assessment, built on a software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform. Promised benefits include a reduction in staff time necessary to vet suppliers; enhanced understanding of vendor cyber risks, sensitive data, and operations; increased support for procurement decisions; vendor security comparisons; increased uptime; and improved reporting.
For organizations just beginning their supply chain risk discovery process, Trustwave offers diagnostic services, which consist of highly targeted assessments designed to help organizations understand their ability to address today’s most pressing cybersecurity risks.
The company claims more than 2,000 world-class security professionals operating on behalf of clients across 96 countries. The Trustwave SpiderLabs team provides threat research and intelligence, which is infused into Trustwave services and products.
The Supply Chain Risk Assessment is intended to produce powerful insights at reduced costs.
