CyberDefenses Announces Expanded Threat Hunting Capability

September 24 11:00 2017 Print This Article

AUSTIN, Texas, Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CyberDefenses, Inc., a leading provider of military-grade managed security services, today announced the addition of Ziften’s systems and security operations (SysSecOps) platform, Zenith, to its military-grade Threat Hunting and Response service.  Zenith provides all-the-time visibility and control for client devices, servers, and cloud VMs – a strong addition to CyberDefenses’ existing portfolio of behavioral analysis, big data analytics, and threat intelligence services.

Governments and enterprises are establishing threat-hunting teams within SOC operations as fast as possible. However, finding the security analyst talent – and building out the right tooling, processes, and procedures – remains a tough challenge for even the most security savvy, well-funded organizations.  And the challenge grows exponentially for less sophisticated, more budget-constrained organizations. CyberDefenses’ military-grade Threat Hunting and Response services offer customers a powerful alternative to the “do-it-yourself” approach that many cannot achieve.

“The demand for endpoint systems and security operations solutions that enable holistic threat detection and response is huge,” said Charles Leaver, Chief Executive Officer of Ziften. “Working with a managed security services partner like CyberDefenses, with such a strong military and federal heritage, gives Ziften a fantastic opportunity to bring our unique capabilities to an increasing set of customers.  Zenith gives CyberDefenses a powerful new threat hunting capability, so together we can continue to serve the increasing number of customers that demand an achievable and affordable path to an improved security posture.”

CyberDefenses offers a Threat Hunting and Response service – as part of its comprehensive managed security service portfolio – that collects and analyzes security data to identify targeted advanced threats and insider threats before critical damage or theft occurs. Defense-in-depth remains central to effective IT security, but adversaries are increasingly wily and relentless. Effort must be devoted to hunting for undetected threats that have breached an organization’s perimeter, and Zenith’s all-the-time endpoint visibility strengthens that hunt process significantly.

“The addition of Ziften Zenith to our threat hunting service makes our already seasoned staff even more effective at their craft,” said Randell Casey, CyberDefenses CEO.  “And, it allows us to offer expanded endpoint assessment and incident response capabilities being demanded by our federal and commercial clients alike.”
