Bit9 Introduces The Bit9 Connector For Palo Alto Networks, Enabling Integrated Real-time Endpoint And Network Security Solution For APTs

Solution combines network security with real-time, continuous endpoint and server monitoring and recording
WALTHAM, Mass.--May 21, 2013--Bit9, the leader in Next-generation Endpoint and Server Security, today announced the introduction of the Bit9 Connector for Palo Alto Networks, the first solution to combine network security with real-time, continuous endpoint and server monitoring and recording. The Bit9 Connector for Palo Alto Networks integrates with Palo Alto Networks' next-generation firewalls and WildFire, the company's cloud-based advanced persistent threat (APT) prevention service, and delivers four significant enterprise security firsts:

· It is the FIRST solution to automatically enforce endpoint and server protection based on results from the Palo Alto Networks WildFire service.

· It is the FIRST solution that can automatically retrieve any file on any system and submit it to Palo Alto Networks for execution and analysis.

· It is the FIRST solution to combine a real-time endpoint sensor and continuous recorder with Palo Alto Networks network security devices to automatically prioritize actionable alerts.

· It is the FIRST solution to provide real-time enterprise-wide visibility into all endpoints and servers infected by malware discovered by Palo Alto Networks.

Traditional security solutions are ineffective against today's advanced threats, especially zero-day and targeted attacks. Network security solutions and endpoint/server security solutions can no longer operate in silos; they must work together to deliver complete actionable intelligence from the network to endpoints and servers.

The Bit9 Connector for Palo Alto Networks delivers real-time security for two major use cases:
