Cyphort Launches Partner Ecosystem; Integrates With Bit9 + Carbon Black Solution to Deliver Advanced Threat Defense Across the Extended Enterprise

Committed to Creating an Advanced Threat Defense Eco-System With Measurable Business Value, Cyphort to Deliver "Out-of-the-Box" API-Driven Integration and Threat Intelligence Sharing

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/06/14 -- Cyphort, a pioneer of Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) solutions, today announced the launch of its Partner Ecosystem (detailed in a separate release, also issued today) featuring a partnership with Bit9 + Carbon Black. Cyphort is integrating its network-based approach to Advanced Threat Defense with Carbon Black's endpoint threat detection and response product, enabling organizations to deploy complete and reliable protection against advanced attacks across network and endpoint assets. As part of the partnership, Cyphort and Bit9 + Carbon Black will also share threat intelligence.

"The Cyphort-Carbon Black integration enables us to zoom in on potentially risky attacks much faster than if we leveraged each one individually, increasing our productivity and enabling us to more strategically mitigate risk," said Brian Johnson, manager, Netflix Information Security. "Cyphort and Bit9 + Carbon Black are already trusted partners that have proven their value; that they took the initiative to integrate their solution in such a useful way increases our ability to efficiency and effectively defend our network against advanced attacks, and serves as a powerful example of how best-of breed companies can work together to increase the value they provide to their customers."

Cyphort - Carbon Black: Unparalleled Advanced Threat Defense
The Cyphort-driven collaboration leverages the open, API-based architecture of both solutions to deliver a best-of-breed offering that addressed customer-driven use cases. As Cyphort detects malware on the network, Carbon Black can determine if the detected malware executed on an endpoint, and how many machines were affected. This real-time, closed-loop visibility enables security analysts to filter out non-actionable events, prioritize high-impact alerts faster, improving response times to potential intrusions.

By querying Carbon Black to show the behavior of the files and processes on the targeted endpoint, the Cyphort Platform can better determine exactly where an attack sits in the kill chain and if a download progressed to infection by showing what the malware did on the endpoint, expediting targeted and accurate remediation.

This integration allows organizations to act quickly and with certainty when malicious objects are detected. Additionally, by sharing threat intelligence, joint customers can correlate Cyphort and Carbon Black threat data to beef up prevention strategies and respond better and faster to Zero Days and other modern attacks.

"The ability to incorporate Carbon Black's endpoint intelligence into our threat ranking processes increases the value of our solution to customers," said Anthony James, Vice President of Marketing and Products for Cyphort. By sharing threat intelligence, we are walking our talk about how information sharing should be the rule and not the exception. We look forward to deepening our relationship with Bit9 + Carbon Black, a company that understands and shares our vision for Advanced Threat Defense."

"Network and endpoint-based approaches to threat defense solutions can no longer operate in silos; they must work together to deliver complete actionable intelligence from the network to endpoints and servers," said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. "We applaud Cyphort for using Carbon Black's open API to integrate with our product. This is a great example of the power of our API to deliver an integration that provides real value to customers. Cyphort is exceptional in its commitment to sharing threat intelligence. We hope this level of openness and collaboration becomes an industry standard."

The Cyphort solution is available immediately, and is included as part of the Cyphort Advanced Threat Platform 3.0.
