McAfee Enterprise and FireEye merge to become Trellix

Issue 1 2022 News & Events

Symphony Technology Group (STG) has announced the launch of Trellix, a new business delivering extended detection and response (XDR) to organisations with a focus on accelerating technology innovation through machine learning and automation.

Trellix emerges from the merger of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye in October 2021. “As today’s organisations 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. “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 600 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,” said Frank Dickson, program vice president, Cybersecurity Products, IDC. “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.”

According to Trellix CRO, Adam Philpott, markets here and abroad are ready for a different approach to cybersecurity, with customer needs far better addressed through ‘living security’ that is flexible and adaptable. “Cybersecurity should work as an organism that evolves and grows with your business. We have seen the adoption of cloud at pace in Africa, which we saw starting to fast-track a few of years ago and has continued to accelerate as a result of Covid-19.

“Organisations have had to be more flexible in how they deliver services to their staff and to their customers, and therefore the attack surfaces have expanded - but there are also opportunities in that. It's not just a threat. We understand this landscape and evolve our architecture platform to support it.”

STG is expected to launch the McAfee Enterprise Secure Service Edge (SSE) portfolio as a separate business later this quarter, inclusive of Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA).
