ForeScout Technologies, Inc. and FireEye, Inc. Team for Real-Time Mitigation of Advanced Persistent Threats
Apr 23 13
ForeScout Technologies and FireEye(R), Inc. announced an integrated approach to dynamically mitigate advanced persistent threats (APTs) and zero-day attacks. By combining the ForeScout CounterACT platform with the FireEye threat protection platform, enterprises can rapidly identify, verify and quarantine APTs, botnets and propagating malware affecting systems in distributed and bring your own device (BYOD) environments. As a result, companies can reduce breaches, data leakage and reputation risks while preempting costly investigation and remediation tasks. The FireEye platform creates a cross-enterprise threat protection fabric using a next-generation threat detection engine, dynamic threat intelligence and interoperability with a broad ecosystem of technology alliance partners to secure all major threat vectors and enable rapid detection, validation and response to cyberattacks. Partner integrations, such as that with ForeScout, can utilize FireEye APIs and standards-based Threat Intelligence Metadata to address the network visibility, endpoint validation and enforcement options needed by today's organizations to automate key cybersecurity workflows. ForeScout CounterACT is a real-time security platform that delivers complete visibility and automated control for all devices, users, systems and applications attempting to connect to an enterprise network - wired or wireless, managed or unmanaged, PC or mobile. Working together, FireEye MPS (malware protection system) identifies attacks and blocks any outbound malware activity while simultaneously informing CounterACT of the affected system and threat severity. In turn, CounterACT applies an enforcement policy, which may include: quarantining the endpoint; blocking or limiting specific communications between the endpoint and other systems; reporting rich details about the endpoint; notifying the end-user and/or administrator; and triggering system remediation.
