Trustwave MDR Services Leverage the Power of Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR To Bring Unmatched Security to Billion-Dollar Oil & Gas Company, Industries Highly Targeted by Hackers

You may have heard the news. Trustwave was recently named a finalist in Palo Alto Networks’ Professional Services Awards for Customer Excellence.

Why Trustwave Was Recognized

Trustwave combines deep expertise and threat intelligence from Trustwave SpiderLabs with advanced analytics from the Trustwave Fusion open XDR (Extended Detection and Response) platform to provide industry-leading Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services that protect our global customers from growing cyber threats 24/7, 365 days a year.

But another crucial key to Trustwave’s leadership in managed detection and response is our seamless integrations with world-class partners, like Palo Alto Networks.

Trustwave Managed Detection and Response services leverage Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR to perform:

  • Complete implementations and baselining of endpoints
  • Health Checks of the Cortex platform
  • Monitoring and escalation of incidents based on new behavioral indicators of compromise (BIOCs) and behavioral analytics matched with threat intelligence
  • Continuous and proactive threat hunting using Palo Alto Networks XDR
  • Multiple levels of breach responses with Trustwave Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR)
  • Custom training on new Cortex platform releases
  • And more

With Trustwave MDR and Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR, your organization can aggressively detect and stop threats that may have outsmarted other security measures before they spread. Remediation of advanced threats happens in hours, not days, with Trustwave MDR and Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR.

How Trustwave Works Differently With Palo Alto Networks

Trustwave Fusion backend integration with Palo Alto Cortex Data Lake gives us the ability to ingest, investigate and mitigate threats detected via aggressive threat hunting and Palo Alto Cortex XDR endpoints.

As a global Certified Professional Services and MDR partner of Palo Alto Networks, Trustwave has been developing innovative consulting strategies and services with deep integration and high value in mind.

The Power of Trustwave Integration

Trustwave integrations don’t just stop at Palo Alto Networks Cortex XDR. Trustwave MDR and Trustwave Fusion can integrate and expand into other Palo Alto Networks solutions such as Prisma Access, Strata (NGFW), Prisma Cloud, and additional third-party solutions for even more powerful monitoring, detection and response capabilities. The Trustwave Technology Alliance Program allows partners like Palo Alto Networks and others to integrate with Trustwave Fusion, which provides additional capabilities such as more powerful monitoring, detection, automation and threat intelligence. This significantly sets us apart from other MDR vendors, who are typically limited to integrating with endpoint solutions.

Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR powered by Trustwave is also coming soon.
