Trustwave Buys Application Firewall Vendor
The company has expanded its security portfolio with the acquisition of Breach Security.
Expanding its security portfolio, Trustwave has acquired application firewall vendor, Breach Security. As noted in this Network World report, The deal gives Trustwave not only Breach's commercial Web Defend firewall, but also its open source Web application firewall software ModSecurity.
"Breach's gear can be used to provide interim Web application security after vulnerabilities have been found in corporate Web apps and before they can be remediated via securing the code itself, Trustwave says. Web Defend will be offered as a separate product but also as the gear used in a managed WAF service, the company says."
