OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Sept. 29, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foresite, an emerging leader of managed security services, today announced it has joined the "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program as an incident response (IR) partner.
As a "Connect" IR partner, Foresite uses Carbon Black to help its customers remediate cyberattacks and breaches. As the Foresite 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 Foresite to rapidly contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.
"The Bit9 + Carbon Black partnership helps to minimize the time required to mitigate an incident, which means faster resolution to the critical data investigation process, and provides organizations continued improvement to their security posture through the remediation and 'lessons learned' processes," said Jason LeDuc, Foresite's vice president of consulting services.
"The Foresite team clearly values its customers' data," said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. "Now equipped with Carbon Black, this team has the ability to detect and respond to advanced attacks targeting these customers better than ever before."
