Trellix’s XDR platform is designed to help security teams leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to predict and detect attacks, quickly identify root causes, and ultimately provide guide detection and response through automated workflows. Trellix customers benefit from best-in-class threat monitoring and analytical support services, which help security operations teams work in an empowered, effective, and efficient manner.
“This moment is a critical point in the industry, as extended detection and response capabilities are foundational for building organizational resiliency,” said Rayasam, CPO of Trellix. “I’m ecstatic to join Trellix and accelerate the integration of artificial intelligence and automation into our XDR platform.”
