Trustwave announced an expanded alliance with Palo Alto Networks for delivering managed security services to businesses and institutions worldwide. Trustwave now offers managed support for Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls, Traps, Cortex XDR and GlobalProtect cloud services incorporating actionable threat intelligence from Trustwave to heighten detection, response time and remediation of cyberthreats.
Palo Alto Networks recently introduced Cortex, the industry’s only open and integrated AI-based continuous security platform. Trustwave will host managed services for Cortex, starting with Cortex XDR, a detection, investigation and response product that natively integrates network, endpoint and cloud data to stop sophisticated attacks.
Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls will leverage actionable threat intelligence derived from the Trustwave global network of Advanced Security Operation Centers (ASOCs) and the Trustwave SpiderLabs Fusion Center, a leading-edge security command center and acting hub to the ASOCs. These facilities work in tandem continually identifying, tracking and collecting the latest intelligence on malware strains, vulnerabilities and adversary tactics, techniques and procedures disseminating new information to Trustwave Managed Security Services customers. From there, security teams can apply appropriate actions ranging from blocking and containment to threat elimination down to the endpoint.
Trustwave has also delivered added support for Palo Alto Networks WildFire and Threat Prevention, cloud-based security subscription services that bolster the capabilities of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls to detect and prevent highly evasive threats and zero-day malware. Trustwave actionable threat intelligence is amalgamated with Palo Alto Networks machine learning and advanced traffic and malware analysis, key components to these services, to add a deep layer of context for addressing threats in customer environments as they arise.
"In today’s cybersecurity climate, time from detection to remediation is vital as threats like obfuscated malware and intruders covertly operating across enterprise environments becomes commonplace,” said Chris Schueler, senior vice president of managed security services at Trustwave. “Having access to the best available technologies, latest threat intelligence and high-level security expertise who can pinpoint anomalies and jump in to take control of a breach situation helps even the playing field. Expanding our managed security services collaboration with Palo Alto Networks truly brings a whole new level of protection for enterprises and government institutions.”
As an Authorized Support Center (ASC) partner, Trustwave enhances its existing role as a trusted advisor and is now a single point of contact for the Palo Alto Networks portfolio of security products, offering organizations technology optimization consulting, full implementation capabilities and technical support. By pairing an ASC partner and world-class managed security services, delivered by Trustwave SpiderLabs, an elite team of security professionals, organizations can heighten their security posture while greatly reducing total cost of ownership for maintenance and personnel.
“Cortex XDR in combination with managed security services from partners like Trustwave delivers round-the-clock monitoring, analysis and coordinated response across network, endpoint and cloud environments to secure our customers most critical assets,” said Karl Soderlund, senior vice president, worldwide channel sales at Palo Alto Networks. “Our collaboration will provide more holistic security outcomes delivered through an even simpler managed model.”
The alliance between Trustwave and Palo Alto Networks will continue around key areas including cross-environment protection and cloud services that extends protection to remote networks and users anywhere in the world.
