Offerings Including Next-Generation Firewalls, Traps and Cortex XDR to
Enhance Threat Detection and Response Capabilities
CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Trustwave today announced an expanded alliance with Palo Alto Networks
for delivering managed
security services to businesses and institutions worldwide.
Trustwave now offers managed support for Palo Alto Networks
next-generation firewalls, Traps™, Cortex XDR and GlobalProtect cloud
services incorporating actionable threat intelligence from Trustwave to
heighten detection, response time and remediation of cyberthreats.
Palo Alto Networks recently introduced Cortex,
the industry’s only open and integrated AI-based continuous security
platform. Trustwave will host managed services for Cortex, starting with Cortex
XDR, a detection, investigation and response product that natively
integrates network, endpoint and cloud data to stop sophisticated
Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls will leverage actionable
threat intelligence derived from the Trustwave global network of Advanced
Security Operation Centers (ASOCs) and the Trustwave
SpiderLabs Fusion Center, a leading-edge security command center and
acting hub to the ASOCs. These facilities work in tandem continually
identifying, tracking and collecting the latest intelligence on malware
strains, vulnerabilities and adversary tactics, techniques and
procedures disseminating new information to Trustwave Managed Security
Services customers. From there, security teams can apply appropriate
actions ranging from blocking and containment to threat elimination down
to the endpoint.
Trustwave has also delivered added support for Palo Alto Networks WildFire
Prevention, cloud-based security subscription services that bolster
the capabilities of Palo Alto Networks next-generation firewalls to
detect and prevent highly evasive threats and zero-day malware.
Trustwave actionable threat intelligence is amalgamated with Palo Alto
Networks machine learning and advanced traffic and malware analysis, key
components to these services, to add a deep layer of context for
addressing threats in customer environments as they arise.
“In today’s cybersecurity climate, time from detection to remediation is
vital as threats like obfuscated malware and intruders covertly
operating across enterprise environments becomes commonplace,” said
Chris Schueler, senior vice president of managed security services at
Trustwave. “Having access to the best available technologies, latest
threat intelligence and high-level security expertise who can pinpoint
anomalies and jump in to take control of a breach situation helps even
the playing field. Expanding our managed security services collaboration
with Palo Alto Networks truly brings a whole new level of protection for
enterprises and government institutions.”
As an Authorized Support Center (ASC) partner, Trustwave enhances its
existing role as a trusted advisor and is now a single point of contact
for the Palo Alto Networks portfolio of security products, offering
organizations technology optimization consulting, full implementation
capabilities and technical support. By pairing an ASC partner and
world-class managed security services, delivered by Trustwave
SpiderLabs, an elite team of security professionals, organizations

coordinated response across network, endpoint and cloud environments to
secure our customers most critical assets,” said Karl Soderlund, senior
