Hexis Managed Service Pairs HawkEye G 3.0 Automated Threat Removal With Experienced Security Professionals to Bolster Constrained IT Resources

HANOVER, Md., April 22, 2015 (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 a new managed service for its flagship automated threat removal platform, HawkEye G. Hexis Managed Service delivers operational management, monitoring, reporting and automated threat removal capabilities that companies have come to expect from their own HawkEye G deployments, now available with a managed service option delivered by Hexis security analysts.

The launch of Hexis Managed Service follows the availability of HawkEye G 3.0, featuring ThreatSync™, an open framework for threat fusion, analytics and evidence-based detection and validation of unknown and known threats, which includes direct integration with third-party perimeter security technologies and third party SIEMs. Pairing the HawkEye G automated threat removal platform with monitoring by the Hexis Security Operations Center delivers immediate security value, allowing enterprises to focus on other IT projects in their organization while improving their security defenses.

"Hexis Managed Service exactly addresses a major challenge facing companies globally – trying to combat increasing security threats but challenged by constrained internal resources," said Chris Carlson, Senior Director of Product Management, Hexis Cyber Solutions. "This offering makes it easy for customers to do more with their existing staff, and they gain additional assurance from our security professionals supporting their efforts to defend against persistent threat actors." This value is illustrated by the tremendous amount of interest from customers that have already become HawkEye G managed service customers.

The Hexis Managed Service offering for HawkEye G is provided through its network of channel partners and value added resellers. Select partners are able to create their own managed services offering using the HawkEye G automated threat removal platform, layering on an additional service offering integrated into their current managed security services, reporting, and help desk services.

With flexible subscription terms, expedited on-site installation, and automated or machine-guided threat removal policy definition, Hexis Managed Service delivers unparalleled security 24/7 all while reducing capital and operational costs. Flexible deployment options provide support for companies ranging in size from a single office to large enterprises with distributed branches or locations, all managed centrally by the Hexis Security Operations Center.


Hexis Managed Service is available now.
