SecureWorks Corp. (NASDAQ: SCWX), a leading provider of intelligence-driven information security solutions, and Carbon Black, the leader in next-generation endpoint security, are teaming up to bring managed, next-generation antivirus (NGAV) protection to clients to block sophisticated security threats.
As a part of SecureWorksâ€™ advanced endpoint security solutions, SecureWorks will offer Advanced Endpoint Threat Prevention (AETP), a next-generation antivirus service powered by Carbon Blackâ€™s Cb Defense. Using a combination of endpoint and cloud-based technologies, Cb Defense delivers a breakthrough security model known as â€œstreaming preventionâ€ to block malware as well as increasingly common attacks that exploit memory and scripting languages, such as PowerShell. By leveraging Cb Defense, SecureWorksâ€™ AETP service will offer enterprises and SMB clients: Protection Against Advanced Attacks: Carbon Blackâ€™s new â€œstreaming preventionâ€ technology prevents malware, ransomware, 0-days, and non-malware attacks.
SecureWorks Intelligence: SecureWorks adds 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. SecureWorks experts from its Senior Intrusion Analyst teams provide documented, actionable guidance on how to eradicate adversary activity that cannot always be blocked.
24X7 Monitoring: Non-stop coverage from SecureWorks gives small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprises alike the ability to offload the time and energy of managing endpoint security to a trusted team of specially trained experts skilled at detecting and defending against advanced threats.
â€œWe are excited to be working with Carbon Black to deliver a solution that blocks a broad spectrum of attacks that traditional antivirus generally misses,â€ said Matt Eberhart, vice president of global product management at SecureWorks. â€œOur 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 canâ€™t prevent.â€
SecureWorks is the first managed security service provider to partner with Carbon Black on Cb Defense. With AETP, SecureWorksâ€™ clients will now receive comprehensive endpoint prevention with NGAV and the latest threat intelligence from the combined global visibility of Carbon Black and SecureWorks.
