With cyber threats evolving, the frequency of attacks increasing and the cyber security talent market experiencing a crunch from the Great Resignation, the company is focused on rolling out its XDR capabilities in ANZ through increased investment in research and development, up-skilling security and IT teams in the areas of automation, machine learning and threat intelligence, as well as developing partnerships with local system integrators and managed service providers.

ANZ is a region with a track record in early adoption of technology with strong technical capabilities, according to Adam Philpott, chief revenue officer at Trellix.

"The region has seen rapid digitisation in the span of a few years and because of this, organisations of all sizes are increasingly becoming prime targets for cyber criminals and being increasingly used as launchpads for cyber attacks.


"What we’re seeing today is the rising demand for fresh, new ways to approach cyber security.

"Organisations in ANZ are seeking strong, security foundations that can adapt and learn as the threat landscape evolves, and this is where we come in with our living security approach and XDR capabilities," Philpott said.

Trellix is aiming to be at the forefront of the XDR revolution, pioneering a brand-new way to bring detection, response and remediation together in a single security solution.

The company's XDR ecosystem is designed to accelerate the effectiveness of security operations by providing customers with the capability to ingest over 600 native and open security technologies.

By providing security and IT teams with better insight, granting more control, and delivering comprehensive threat context, analysts can save time and act decisively to remediate threats.
