Cybersecurity Technology

Trellix, a new firm from Symphony Technology Group (STG), will provide enterprises with extended detection and response (XDR), with an emphasis on speeding technology innovation through machine learning and automation.

In October 2021, Trellix will arise from the previously announced merger of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye.  “We are incredibly excited to have Trellix in the STG portfolio,” said William Chisholm, managing partner, STG. 

He added, “Customers can expect Trellix’s living security platform to deliver bold innovation across the XDR market.”

“As today’s organizations push to achieve digital transformation, a strong security foundation is required to ensure continued innovation, growth and resiliency,” said Bryan Palma, chief executive officer, Trellix.

He  added, “Trellix’s XDR platform protects our customers as we bring security to life with automation, machine learning, extensible architecture, and threat intelligence.” 

“The promise of XDR dramatically improves security efficacy, and the vendors that can deliver on that promise will capture market share,” said Frank Dickson, program vice president, Cybersecurity Products, IDC.

He added, “However, integrating context and delivering outcomes takes resources and work. It is a monumental effort made possible with the right security partner. With a combined product portfolio that spans endpoint, network, messaging, data protection, and cloud services, Trellix has an impressive multi-technology portfolio to address the promise of XDR.”

The new term is based on the construction of a trellis, which is a robust and safe scaffolding for climbing plants and trees to enable structured growth. Trellix will deliver on its promise to help enterprises become more resilient and confident by using living security—security technology that learns and adapts to safeguard operations from the most advanced threat actors.

Trellix’s XDR ecosystem is designed to help companies improve the effectiveness of security operations by allowing them to ingest over 600 native and open security solutions. Security analysts can save time and move decisively to remediate attacks by giving deeper insight, granting more control, and delivering comprehensive threat context.

The McAfee Enterprise Secure Service Edge (SSE) portfolio, which includes Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG), and Zero Trust Network Access, is planned to be launched as a distinct business later this quarter by STG (ZTNA).
