Merged McAfee Enterprise and FireEye rebrand as Trellix

The company created through the recent merger of McAfee Enterprise and FireEye has rebranded as Trellix, with a new focus on delivering extended detection and response services.

FireEye and McAfee Enterprise announced a merger in October 2021 under the auspices of McAfee Enterprise’s parent company, Symphony Technology Group (STG), which paid US$1.2 billion ($1.67 billion) for FireEye.

STG had previously purchased McAfee’s enterprise division in March 2021 for US$4 billion.

Trellix CEO Bryan Palma said the name has been derived from ‘trellis’ to evoke the structure of a strong and safe framework used to support structured growth of climbing plants and trees. This reflects the company’s focus on building resilient and confident organisations through a concept it refers to as ‘living security’.

“As today’s organisations push to achieve digital transformation, a strong security foundation is required to ensure continued innovation, growth and resiliency,” he said.

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

The XDR ecosystem is designed to accelerate the effectiveness of internal security operations by providing access to over 600 native and open security technologies.

STG also plans to launch the McAfee Enterprise Secure Service Edge portfolio — including the Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Secure Web Gateway (SWG) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) products — as a separate business later this quarter.
