Bit9(R) + Carbon Black(R) Announce Bit9 + Carbon Black Solution, the Most Advanced and Complete Endpoint Threat Prevention, Detection and Response Solution

Bit9(R) + Carbon Black(R) announced the Bit9 + Carbon Black Solution, the most advanced and complete endpoint threat prevention, detection and response solution available to enterprises, government and mid-size businesses. The integrated Bit9 + Carbon Black Solution, which consists of new versions of the company's products--the Bit9 Security Platform version 7.2 and Carbon Black version 4.2 as well as the new Threat Intelligence Cloud service--fills the visibility, prevention, detection and response gaps in antivirus products, traditional post-breach incident response services, and network security technologies to deliver a new level of endpoint protection that makes advanced threats easier to see and faster to stop--before a breach occurs. The integrated Bit9 + Carbon Black Solution directly addresses these new realities by delivering: Real-time threat visibility and continuous recording of all endpoint and server activity; Proactive endpoint prevention that provides multiple forms of prevention to stop advanced attacks from infiltrating an organization; Fast, accurate detection of advanced threats, without relying on signatures; Response to and remediation of threats in seconds; Open integration with leading network security solutions. The new product versions and integrated solution feature improvements in four key areas: The new Bit9 + Carbon Black Threat Intelligence Cloud service--which features community and proprietary threat data from leading third-party threat intelligence providers, as well as the Bit9 + Carbon Black Software Reputation Service (SRS) and Advanced Threat Indicators (ATI)--delivers shared intelligence for fast, accurate identification of threats and malware. This enables security teams to create detection events and filter results based on reputation as well as community and shared intelligence for the best possible prevention of advanced threats; The Threat Intelligence cloud service--including recently added community and proprietary attack classification capabilities--now works seamlessly with both the Bit9 Security Platform and Carbon Black; The integration of the Bit9 Security Platform version 7.2 and Carbon Black version 4.2, which were announced, features two key integrations: Automation of prevention policies. When Carbon Black detects a new piece of malware it automatically feeds the threat information into the Bit9 enforcement engine, allowing the Bit9 Security Platform to immediately terminate the malicious process and prevent its execution on every endpoint and server in the enterprise. This allows customers to proactively take charge of protecting their endpoints and servers instead of waiting days or weeks for traditional security vendors to generate and distribute signatures; enhanced visibility and response. From inside the Bit9 Security Platform a security analyst can select any suspicious file and, with a single click, enter the Carbon Black console to investigate the full ‘kills chain’ by seeing which sequences of processes created the file, what network connections it made, what processes or files it created, and more; and enhanced open-platform application programming interfaces (API) and specific product integrations with leading security solutions.
