The partners will offer next generation security services to organisations using automated technology

Trustwave and Palo Alto Networks have announced a strategic alliance designed to bring next-generation managed security services to global, multi-national businesses and government agencies.

Under the terms of the agreement, Trustwave has become a global member of the Palo Alto Networks NextWave partner programme to provide managed security services for the Palo Alto Networks security platform.

The alliance expands Trustwave Managed Security Services to include Palo Alto Networks devices delivering the latest next-generation security technology, to help businesses defend the network perimeter without having to manage and monitor the devices themselves.
