Symphony Technology Group (STG) has announced the launch of Trellix – an offshoot of the merger between STG subsidiaries McAfee Enterprise and FireEye, announced in October 2021.

The new business is set to offer extended detection and response (XDR) solutions with a focus on leveraging machine learning and automation.

By using the “living security” strategy, Trellix aims to deliver solutions that learn and adapt to protect operations from the most advanced threat actors.​


“We are incredibly excited to have Trellix in the STG portfolio,” William Chisholm, managing partner of STG, said.

“Customers can expect Trellix’s living security platform to deliver bold innovation across the XDR market.”

Bryan Palma, who will serve as Trellix CEO, said the strong security foundation offered by the company would help ensure continued innovation, growth and resiliency.

“Trellix’s XDR platform protects our customers as we bring security to life with automation, machine learning, extensible architecture and threat intelligence,” Palma added.

Specifically, Trellix's offering is expected to enable customers to ingest over 600 native and open security technologies, providing security analysts with enhanced insight, granting more control and delivering comprehensive threat context.

“The promise of XDR dramatically improves security efficacy, and the vendors that can deliver on that promise will capture market share,” Frank Dickson, program vice-president, cyber security products, IDC said.

“However, integrating context and delivering outcomes takes resources and work. It is a monumental effort made possible with the right security partner.

“With a combined product portfolio that spans endpoint, network, messaging, data protection and cloud services, Trellix has an impressive multi-technology portfolio to address the promise of XDR.”

Meanwhile, STG has confirmed McAfee Enterprise’s Secure Service Edge (SSE) portfolio would be launched as a separate business unit later this quarter, incorporating cloud access security broker (CASB), secure web gateway (SWG) and zero trust network access (ZTNA).
