Secure Sense Joins "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program as an MSSP Partner

BURLINGTON, Ontario, Aug. 4, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Secure Sense, a leading IT solutions provider, announced today it has joined the "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program as a managed security services provider (MSSP) partner. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response. Secure Sense is Bit9 + Carbon Black's first MSSP partner in Canada.

As a "Connect" MSSP partner, Secure Sense uses Carbon Black to help its customers remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As the Secure Sense 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 Secure Sense to rapidly contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.

"We are very excited to be strategically aligned with Bit9 and Carbon Black as their first MSSP solution provider in Canada," said Peter Humphries, chief executive officer, Secure Sense. "This service is a result of market demand for better ROI on customer endpoint protection expenditures. Strengthened by Bit9 and Carbon Black, this service is another example of Secure Sense's forward thinking to help implement, monitor, maintain and optimize customer security practices."

"Equipping the Secure Sense team with Carbon Black makes for a very powerful combination," said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. "We're pleased that the Secure Sense team will bring Carbon Black's unmatched capabilities to their customers."
