SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Check Point and WireX Systems today announced a strategic partnership to accelerate their customers' ability to monitor, detect and neutralize security threats. The new relationship will combine Check Point's advanced prevention and detection capabilities with WireX Systems unattached ability to analyze, store and visualize months of network data, providing automated and continuous forensics visibility into an organization's network.
Tomer Saban, CEO and co-founder of WireX Systems, said, "This partnership gives our joint customers advanced prevention and detection capabilities combined with months of in-depth visibility to efficiently reveal the scope and impact of security incidents, while turning every security team member into a valuable analyst."
As companies today are under increasing pressure to quickly identify successful attacks and respond immediately to minimize damage, they face these main difficulties:
The lack of data to provide context beyond the simple log collection.
The ability to "see" the actual network activities within the variety of different servers (including payload information like file downloads/uploads, business applications, DB transactions, etc.)
The amount of time it takes to collect and compile the necessary data, for a single threat, is sometimes measured in days, even for the more experienced analysts.
"By teaming up with WireX Systems, we're excited to leverage their complete network visibility and advanced data analysis in pursuit of our mission to provide businesses with Gen V advanced threat prevention solutions," said Jason Min, Head of Business and Corporate Development at Check Point Software Technologies.
WireX Systems Incident Response Platform delivers complete network visibility and powerful tools to streamline the entire investigation processes. When a malicious activity is detected, the platform uses a unique approach to compile and analyze extensive data into clear and comprehensive intelligence critical for the investigation process. The solution further enriches these insights using external threat feeds while also managing and documenting the investigation workflow. WireX Systems developed the platform with an emphasis on simplification, ensuring that every level of security (including the less experienced ones) will be able to operate it and handle more threats in significantly less time.
Check Point's SandBlast Zero-Day Protection takes network security to the next level. Hackers are constantly modifying their strategies and techniques in order to evade detection and access corporate resources. To combat this, enterprises require a prevention strategy that combines proactive protection with CPU-level exploit detection in order to expose the best-camouflaged attacks. SandBlast provides complete protection from even the most dangerous attacks using evasion-resistant malware detection, ensuring rapid delivery of safe content to users.
The combination of the two services enables immediate threat enrichment of investigation data in real time, allowing companies to quickly assess complex security threats, threat actors, exploits, malware and vulnerabilities in order to make informed decisions.
By leveraging both platforms customers will be able to:
Get the context behind the alerts in order to understand lateral movement.
Accelerate the investigation process by having all network activities already collected, analyzed and visualized.
Enrich the collected data with SandBlast zero day protection to understand threat actors and perform root cause analysis.
