WALTHAM, Mass. and FORT WORTH, Texas, Jan. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, and The Oxman Group LLC, a leading information security, data forensics, and consulting firm, today announced that The Oxman Group has joined the "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program as an incident response (IR) partner.
As a "Connect" IR partner, The Oxman Group uses Carbon Black to help its customers remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As The Oxman Group security team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, it 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 The Oxman Group to move rapidly to contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.
"Carbon Black is the premiere incident response solution on the market," said Don Oxman, The Oxman Group's founder and president. "Equipping our world-class security team with such a technology empowers us to have a 360-degree view of our customers' enterprises better than ever before."
The Oxman Group's experienced team of engineers, analysts and investigators provides support and assistance to customers worldwide. The company has years of real-world experience with clients big and small, private sector and government
"Incident response is a critical component in today's world of advanced threats," said Tom Barsi, Bit9 + Carbon Black's vice president of business development. "This partnership ensures that when a breach does occur, an organization's critical data is protected from falling into the wrong hands. We're proud to be partnering with The Oxman Group."
