Symphony Technology Group (STG), a private equity partner to data, software, and analytics companies, has launched Trellix, a new business that will deliver extended detection and response (XDR) to protect organisations focused on using machine learning and automation to accelerate technology innovation.
Trellix emerged from the previously announced merger of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye in October 2021.
“We are incredibly excited to have Trellix in the STG portfolio,” STG managing partner William Chisholm said. “Customers can expect Trellix’s living security platform to deliver bold innovation across the XDR market.”
Trellix will deliver its brand promise to build resilient and confident organisations through living security – security technology that learns and adapts to protect operations from the most advanced threat actors.
“As today’s organisations push to achieve digital transformation, a strong security foundation is required to ensure continued innovation, growth and resiliency,” Trellix chief executive officer Bryan Palma said.
“Trellix’s XDR platform protects our customers as we bring security to life with automation, machine learning, extensible architecture and threat intelligence.”
Trellix’s XDR ecosystem is designed to accelerate the effectiveness of security operations by providing customers with the capability to ingest over six hundred native and open security technologies. By providing security analysts with better insight, granting more control and delivering comprehensive threat context, analysts can save time and act decisively to remediate threats.
“The promise of XDR dramatically improves security efficacy, and the vendors that can deliver on that promise will capture market share,” IDC Cyber security Products program vice president Frank Dickson said. “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.”
Symphony Technology Group is expected to launch the McAfee Enterprise Secure Service Edge (SSE) portfolio as a separate business later in the quarter, including Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).
