Experts Conclude: HawkEye G Identifies, Blocks and Removes Varying Levels of Threat-Based Malware

HANOVER, Md., Dec. 11, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hexis Cyber Solutions (Hexis), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation (Nasdaq:KEYW), and a provider of advanced cybersecurity solutions for commercial companies and government agencies, today announced Network World has given next generation Threat Detection and Response solution, HawkEye G, 4.875 out of 5 stars in a standalone product review on Incident Response Programs.

In today's constantly evolving threat landscape, sophisticated hackers are finding new ways to penetrate the networks of vulnerable organizations. As a result, organizations are faced with the daunting challenge of selecting a solution that will enable them to see past the constant "noise" of alerts made by security solutions that don't provide what's really important – actually removing malware and threats. Security experts have concluded that the only failsafe technology in protecting an environment is through automation.

In the article, reviewer John Breeden II noted that, "The only way to successfully combat the multitude of threats these days is with automation, and HawkEye G makes this possible in a safe way that keeps humans apprised of the situation, but doesn't require or need their approval to get the job done." He also noted that, "…HawkEye G does a great job of identifying threats, blocking, removing them, while also locking things down so that they can never return."

"As part of this product category review, Incident Response Programs, HawkEye G was tested against several key elements including: detection, prevention and automated or recommended response."

The Network World scorecard for HawkEye G was as follows:

  • Ease of Installation – 5.0
  • Ease of Use – 4.5
  • Features – 5.0
  • Automation Level – 5.0
  • Total Score: 4.875

"We're honored that HawkEye G received a near-perfect score in Network World's standalone product review," said Chris Carlson, Senior Director of Product Management, Hexis Cyber Solutions. "HawkEye G's approach to offering continuous detection and response capabilities in malware and threat removal is critical for organizations that are looking to reduce the risk of compromise and increase the effectiveness of incident response efforts. In looking back at some of the past year's more detrimental attacks, we at Hexis are committed to further enhancing our flagship solution to transform how enterprises deal with advanced threats."
