This release represents a continued focus on expanding the company’s core capabilities of integrated detection and automated response. Major highlights of this release include:

Improved Detection Combines Industry Leading Network Sandboxing Powered by Lastline with HawkEye G Next-Generation Endpoint Detection and Response
HawkEye G 4.0 now offers network sandboxing capabilities powered by Lastline, the only Full System Emulation (FUSE™) malware analysis platform with one of the highest-rated scores for security effectiveness by independent testing company NSS Labs. The integration of network sandboxing powered by Lastline strengthens HawkEye G’s signature-less detection improving an organization’s ability to detect and remediate unknown cyber threats. HawkEye G extracts suspicious multi-protocol content from network traffic and sends it to Lastline’s hosted or on-premise sandbox environment, where it is detonated and analyzed. Release 4.0 includes support for Windows PE executables, Microsoft Office documents, and PDF files in HTTP and STMP traffic; future support will include Mac OS X Mach-O executables and Android APK binaries delivering the most comprehensive coverage of file types and protocols available in the industry.
“The partnership between Hexis and Lastline provides a compelling offering for enterprises of all sizes looking to improve the visibility and detection of unknown threats at both the endpoint and network while eliminating point solutions from their enterprise,” explains Chris Carlson, VP of Product Management, Hexis Cyber Solutions. “This integrated offering provides organizations with industry-leading network sandboxing in addition to our award-winning next-generation endpoint detection and response capabilities.”
The Lastline partnership bolsters our integration capabilities with market-leading security technologies including FireEye™, Palo Alto Networks™ and Splunk™.
HawkEye G’s Next-Generation Endpoint Detection and Response Platform Now Available in Cloud and Hybrid Cloud Deployments
The release of HawkEye G 4.0 also includes a cloud offering. The single tenant cloud deployment provides an easy, secure way to leverage HawkEye G without needing to deploy and manage on-premise equipment. For customers who select the cloud deployment, Hexis offers a choice of geographic data center locations starting with the United States, with forthcoming datacenters in the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia and Japan.
“Whether you leverage HawkEye G in the cloud, on-premise, or a hybrid combination, the enhancements featured in HawkEye G 4.0 position us as the leading threat detection and automated response platform available today,” Chris Carlson states. “As we continue to bring innovative capabilities to the market, customers of all sizes will benefit from the advanced security protection we’re offering.”
