Ziften Now a Certified Partner in Blue Coat System’s EDR Ready Program
AUSTIN, Texas – February 24, 2015 – Ziften today announced that they have joined Blue Coat System’s Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) partner program as an EDR-Ready Certified Partner. Ziften’s innovative EDR solution is now integrated with Blue Coats’ Security Analytics and Malware Analysis solutions. This integration provides security professionals the ability to quickly see what is happening both at the network level and down to the endpoint, in real-time, but also analyze historical data.
The integrated solution combines Ziften’s next-generation platform for detection, containment, analysis, and response to leverage a broader set of data originating from Blue Coat’s Security Analytics and Malware Analysis solutions. Ziften’s continuous endpoint visibility yields unprecedented insight and enables organizations to efficiently detect advanced threats and immediately respond with automated remediation functionality across their entire IT environment, including all laptops, desktops, and servers.
As the IBM Cyber Security Intelligence Report noted, 95 percent of successful attacks involve human error. This reinforces that people are the biggest point of vulnerability in any organization. With elimination of firewalls and an ongoing movement to cloud technologies, the protection of the endpoint is vital. This is where the most valuable information lives including intellectual property and credentials—each of which can be used for cyber ransom.
Since advanced cyber threats can target any part of an organization, effective threat detection and rapid response requires comprehensive visibility from network to endpoint. “With the evolution of threats over the last several years, there is an even greater need for coordination amongst security providers,” said Josh Applebaum, vice president of product strategy, Ziften. “Ziften and Blue Coat have partnered to bring together an integrated solution that allows continuous, real-time visibility and control from your network to your endpoints.”
“We’re excited to welcome Ziften into the EDR Ready program,” said Peter Doggart, vice president of business development at Blue Coat. “We are focused on building a highly integrated security eco-system to help our customers quickly and efficiently move from breach discovery to containment and remediation. The integration with Ziften automatically shares intelligence, and improves IR workflow saving precious resources.”
Integration of Blue Coat solutions, together with its extensive ecosystem of industry leading endpoint security partners, delivers unrivaled end-to-end visibility and threat intelligence to enable swift detection, effective blocking, and complete and proactive incident response. Ziften complements and extends this by leveraging third party data feeds from ReversingLabs File Reputation Service, AlienVault Open Threat Exchange (OTX), Palo Alto WildFire, and iSIGHT Partners ThreatScape®.
Global enterprises of all sizes rely on Ziften to enhance their existing security posture, and amplify their limited resources. The Ziften solutions take the complexity, time, and cost out of threat detection with a solution that deploys and can be utilized in minutes, not days. Ziften’s continuous monitoring solution helps organizations quickly detect and stop threats, monitor for vulnerabilities and exposures, and identify abnormalities utilizing context-rich historical data. Ziften’s ZFlow technology extends network telemetry down to the endpoint, providing critical “last mile” network visibility with rich endpoint context. By pairing end-to-end visibility with actionable intelligence, Ziften customers secure their environment and protect their reputation.
