Trustwave and Trellix Enter into a Strategic Managed Detection and Response Partnership

Trustwave and Trellix have entered a strategic partnership that will see the two premier cybersecurity companies deliver best-in-class Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions to enterprise-class organizations.

The partnership will begin with Trustwave's innovative MDR services on Trellix EDR products, which will result in these clients receiving unrivaled threat visibility and the ability to detect and respond to threats faster and more precisely.

“We’re committed to helping organizations realize greater value from across their security investments while conducting and growing their businesses securely,” said Trustwave CEO Eric Harmon. “Unlike other providers, MDR is the core of our business, and we’re proud to take over as Trellix’s newest partner to provide our joint clients with a new level of holistic cyber defense.”

Trellix views the partnership with Trustwave as highly strategic due to its leadership and market innovation. Industry analysts have unanimously considered Trustwave a global Managed Security Services (MSS) leader, ranking the company as a Leader across analyst reports.

“Our partnership with Trustwave was carefully chosen because we believe Managed Detection and Response works best with a level of customer intimacy provided by the channel,” said Trellix CEO Bryan Palma. “We have no doubt our XDR platform combined with MDR services from Trustwave is a winning combination for our customers.”

Trustwave was recently awarded Frost & Sullivan’s 2023 Cybersecurity Company of the Year in MSS & PSS Markets, with special recognition as the highest-rated Innovator in the Americas MSS and PSS Radar Report and as top 5 Innovator in the Global MDR Radar Report. Trustwave is also the highest-ranked pure-play cybersecurity provider in IDC’s 2022 Worldwide Managed Cloud Security Services in the Multi-Cloud Era Marketscape.

“IDC research has shown that improving mean time to detect (MTTD) and mean time to respond (MTTR) are the top concern in the US, and the 2nd highest concern globally when choosing a security services provider,” said Craig Robinson, Research Vice President, Security Services at IDC. “MDR providers that have dedicated resources assigned to their customers to fine-tune their performance will help to elevate cybersecurity maturity and improve the key metrics that Boards are increasingly monitoring to ensure their organizations are staying safe in an increasingly hostile cyber environment.”

Trustwave’s Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provides enterprises across the globe with 24x7 monitoring, detection, and response of their hybrid multi-cloud environments for active threats and anomalies, backed by an elite team of global threat operators, threat hunters, and malware experts.

Armed with Trellix XDR, Trustwave threat intelligence, and context from customers’ security infrastructure, Trustwave detects threats in real-time, hunts for emerging threats at the endpoint, and initiates response actions to quickly eliminate them. Both companies share a commitment to drastically improving organizations’ Mean Time to Respond (MTTR), and tailor offerings to the customers’ unique environment to provide faster security outcomes.
