DALLAS, May 5, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Advanced Threat Analytics, a leading MSSP, today announced it has joined the "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program as an MSSP partner. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response.
As a "Connect" MSSP partner, Advanced Threat Analytics uses Carbon Black to help its customers remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As the Advanced Threat Analytics team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, they use 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 Advanced Threat Analytics to move rapidly to contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.
"Effective security is fundamentally based on collecting the right type of alerts and then being able slash investigation time from hours to minutes," said Robert Davis, chief executive officer of Advanced Threat Analytics "Using Carbon Black as the core element of our cloud-based managed service, our team has built a solution that deploys in hours while dramatically improving productivity and enables rapid incident response on and off the corporate network."
"With Carbon Black now an integral component of Advanced Threat Analytics' security services, customers can be sure they have the best detection and response capabilities on the market," said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black.
