  • Penetration Testing

    A penetration test or "ethical hack" evaluates an application's or network's ability to withstand attack. During a penetration test, you authorize an expert (or "ethical hacker") armed with the same techniques as today's cybercriminals to hack into your network or application. Such an exercise will open your eyes to vulnerabilities you didn't know existed and the effects of exploitation.

    Now more than ever, Government organizations realize the need for pro-active security testing, and budgets are increasing as a result. Still, planning for and procuring security testing presents a number of challenges:

    • Anticipating future testing needs
    • Conducting testing in a timely manner
    • Making testing an efficient, business-as-usual initiative rather than an obstacle
    • Getting high quality testing across multiple asset types
    • Standardizing repeatable testing/reporting across asset types
    • Fulfilling compliance requirements
    • Effectively managing multiple tests, and re-testing, over the course of the year
  • Compliance Services (PCI, HIPPA)


    Trustwave delivers industry-leading assessment services and compliance-enabling technology to government organizations that must comply with the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). Trustwave Compliance Validation Service (CVS) can help you proactively manage and streamline your PCI compliance efforts and ensure the process is completed with security in mind.


    For government organizations or programs providing healthcare or healthcare plans and their business associates, Trustwave provides knowledge and expert guidance at each milestone on the road to secure protected health information (PHI) according to the rules under the Health Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

    Trustwave HIPAA services include:

    • HIPAA Compliance Gap Assessment service to identify all policy gaps, how they relate to critical HIPAA regulatory issues, and specific actionable recommendations to close those gaps.

  • Managed Security Services (MSS)

    Whether you're challenged with meeting IT budget demands, fighting new threat adversaries, or are just looking for more efficiency around your compliance and security initiatives, we understand that all organizations are different, and that's why our Managed Security Services are designed for that kind of flexibility.
