Trustwave support for Prisma Cloud helps enterprises address growing complexities achieving visibility, identifying threats and protecting assets in diverse environments.
“Prisma Cloud, in combination with managed security services from partners like Trustwave, gives enterprises powerful options for helping ensure their cloud footprint remains secure,” said Karl Soderlund, senior vice president of worldwide channel sales at Palo Alto Networks. “This relationship will help customers identify and address threats before they escalate into a serious incident.”

Continuous threat monitoring and detection in cloud environments is delivered through Trustwave Managed Detection Services and led by Trustwave SpiderLabs, the company’s elite security team. Data from users, devices and applications is closely inspected for malware, behavioral anomalies, policy violations and other potential threats. Detected threats are cross-referenced with threat intelligence derived from the global network of Trustwave Security Operation Centers, Palo Alto Networks and third-party sources resulting in minimal false positives to help expedite proper response.
"Enterprises are under tremendous pressure to enforce policies and secure data across their footprint as they adopt multi-cloud strategies, while contending with industry-wide security talent shortages further compounded by cloud security,” said Chris Schueler, senior vice president of managed security services at Trustwave. “By pairing Prisma Cloud with our security experts and managed offerings, we have delivered an effective solution that bolsters policy enforcement and threat detection capabilities while maximizing investments in cloud security.”
