Trustwave Government Solutions Achieves Palo Alto Networks Cortex eXtended Managed Detection and Response (XMDR) Specialization

Combines Palo Alto Networks leading Cortex XDR solution with Trustwave Government Solutions managed services — empowering customers’ security operations

March 1, 2023 – Trustwave Government Solutions (TGS), a Federally focused Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider and the wholly-owned subsidiary of Trustwave Holdings, Inc., today announced it has become a Palo Alto Networks Cortex® XMDR Specialization partner.

Trustwave Government Solutions joins a select group of channel partners who have earned this distinction through operational capabilities and fulfillment of business requirements and completion of technical, sales enablement, and specialization examinations. The Cortex XMDR Specialization will enable TGS to combine the power of best-in-class Cortex XDR™ detection and response solution with their managed services offerings — helping customers worldwide streamline security operations center (SOC) operations and quickly mitigate cyberthreats. 

“We are thrilled to be expanding our managed security services collaboration with Palo Alto Networks to bring a whole new level of protection to government institutions,” said Bill Rucker, President of Trustwave Government Solutions. “This achievement confirms our commitment to providing our clients with next-generation security technology and services and offering the first-ever managed detection and response (MDR) service specifically built for the rigorous requirements of the federal government.”

“Organizations need effective detection and response across the network, endpoint, and cloud but managing today’s threats effectively is a massive undertaking,” said Tom Barsi, Vice President Cortex Ecosystems at Palo Alto Networks. “Trustwave Government Solutions’ commitment to attain the Cortex XMDR Specialization will give their managed security services customers peace of mind that the services they are choosing will mitigate security gaps and relieve the day-to-day burden of security operations for customers with 24/7 coverage.”

TGS has replicated its award-winning Trustwave Managed Detection and Response capability into its AWS GovCloud environment. Combining the power of a best-in-class Cortex XDR™ detection and response solution with the threat intelligence collected and curated by Trustwave SpiderLabs researchers ensures clients are well prepared to detect sooner, respond faster, maximize technology investments, and remain ahead of the quickly evolving threat landscape. 

To achieve Specialization status, Palo Alto Networks partner organizations must have Cortex XDR-certified SOC analysts/threat hunters on staff and available 24/7. Partners seeking this XMDR Specialization distinction must also complete both technical and sales enablement and specialization examinations. Cortex XMDR Specialization partners combine experienced analysts, mature operational processes, and proven customer support with Palo Alto Networks market-leading security products, enabling them to provide customers comprehensive visibility, detection and response across network, endpoint and cloud assets, combined with best-in-class threat prevention and in-depth security expertise.
