DIGITS LLC Joins "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program as Incident Response (IR) Partner

WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 18, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, and DIGITS LLC, premier digital forensics experts, today announced that DIGITS LLC has joined the "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program as an incident response partner.

As a "Connect" IR partner, DIGITS LLC uses Carbon Black to help its customers in the legal and corporate communities remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As the DIGITS LLC team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, DIGITS LLC uses Carbon Black to pinpoint each endpoint and server on which malware has landed and reveal the entire "kill chain" of the attack, so responders can quickly see where and how the attack started. This enhanced visibility enables DIGITS LLC to move rapidly to contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.

"Carbon Black is the leading incident response tool on the market," said Michael McCartney, DIGITS LLC's President/CEO "Our team and, as a result, our customers will see immediate benefits from this partnership."

Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black, said: "Incident response in today's world of advanced threats is about making sure that when a breach occurs that data is protected from falling into the wrong hands. The combination of DIGITS LLC's specialists and Carbon Black's innovative ability to detect and respond to threats in real time will provide companies with a unique defense against cyber attacks."
