Carbon Black, together with Fortinet, has positioned themselves to stop the next-generation threats in way that it is still easy for a customer to manage, maintain, and integrate with other applications, while giving customers full visibility.
“For a long time, we’ve used legacy technologies to mitigate and detect security breaches – but now we’re looking at a few things we need to change – one of the key things is looking beyond simple files,” said Jim Raine, Director of Technology Alliances, Carbon Black.
Fortinet and Carbon Black’s coalition helps companies share their endpoint data with network entities, which can be shared with a SOC for a holistic picture of the entire environment – both on and off-premise, in order to ensure a better security posture for the end-user.
The integration of Carbon Black’s Cb Enterprise Protection within Fortinet ATP increases efficiency and response time to previously unknown threats – reducing the risk of lost data and business continuity – by prioritising high-risk alerts while filtering out non-actionable events.
Specifically, when Fortinet FortiSandbox detects previously unknown malware on the network (in sniffer, on-demand, or integrated mode together with FortiGate, FortiMail, FortiWeb, or FortiClient), Cb Enterprise Protection automatically confirms the location, scope, and severity of the threat on endpoints and servers. And it can also be configured to take immediate automated or operator-assisted response actions.
The powerful combination of Carbon Black and Fortinet endpoint and network security solves four key security challenges: analysis, prioritisation, investigation, and remediation.
