Singapore Telecommunications Ltd. has completed its acquisition of data security vendor and researcher Trustwave, about four months after the companies initially announced the deal.

Chicago-based Trustwave will operate under its brand name as a standalone business unit within the Singtel Group Enterprise, the companies said this week.

Trustwave will bring data from Singtel's large Asia Pacific network and its Advanced Security Operations Center to establish additional threat intelligence into its managed security services.

Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

The acquisition increases Trustwave's current six global security operations centers to eight, including Singapore and one planned for Australia.

“Joining Singtel gives us the ability to leverage its global presence and resources to accelerate worldwide adoption of Trustwave managed security services and technologies," Trustwave CEO and president Robert J. McCullen stated in a press release.

Trustwave brings more than 3 million business subscribers in 96 countries to Singtel, as well as its Trustwave SpiderLabs ethical hacking and threat research team.

Trustwave also has a portfolio of security technologies and intellectual property that includes 56 patents either granted or pending, the companies said.

Singtel provides voice and data solutions throughout Asia over fixed, wireless and Internet platforms as well as information communications technology and pay TV. It boasts of more than 550 million mobile customers in 25 countries.
