SecureWorks Corp., an intelligence-driven information security solutions provider, and Carbon Black, next-generation endpoint security provider, are teaming up to bring clients managed, next-generation antivirus (NGAV) protection.
SecureWorks will be offering Advanced Endpoint Threat Prevention (AETP), a next-generation antivirus service powered by Carbon Black’s Cb Defense. Using a combination of endpoint and cloud-based technologies, Cb Defense will offer “streaming prevention” to block malware as well as increasingly common attacks that exploit memory and scripting languages, such as PowerShell.
The companies say their AETP service will offer enterprises and small to mid sized business (SMB) clients:
Protection against advanced attacks including malware, ransomware, 0-days, and non-malware attacks.
Curated threat intelligence and analytics, going beyond point-in-time protection with the complete visibility needed to rapidly respond to threats identified by less-certain triggers.
Documented actionable guidance on how to eradicate adversary activity that cannot always be blocked.
24X7 Monitoring by a trusted team of specially trained experts.
“We are excited to be working with Carbon Black to deliver a solution that blocks a broad spectrum of attacks that traditional antivirus generally misses,” said Matt Eberhart, vice president of global product management at SecureWorks. “Our clients tell us about the need for a simple solution that combines the black-and-white decisions of next-gen anti-malware protection with a service that also has the necessary endpoint telemetry to rapidly respond to adversary activity that you can’t prevent.”
“Customers can now enjoy the benefit of breakthrough prevention technology combined with world-class detection and response services,” said Tom Barsi, Carbon Black’s senior vice president of business development. “These customers no longer have to make a choice about which is more important. This offering provides full protection with one technology in Carbon Black, and one service provider in SecureWorks.”
The offering is slated to be available in the second quarter of 2017.
