Lastline Partners with Bit9 + Carbon Black to Deliver Comprehensive Network and Endpoint Breach Protection

Product Integration Provides End-to-End Coverage Against Advanced and Evasive Malware

REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Feb. 3, 2015 – Lastline, a global breach detection platform provider, today announced a partnership and technology integration with Bit9 + Carbon Black, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response. The integration delivers automated and comprehensive end-to-end endpoint and network security for email, web, files and mobile applications. Lastline also has joined the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Partner Program.

“Defenders are increasingly being overrun both by ordinary cybercrime (or hacktivist attacks) and by advanced, targeted attacks from sophisticated adversaries,” said Mario de Boer of Gartner. “A complete advanced anti-malware strategy must consider extending the traditional endpoint and Web/email protections with network malware protection systems (MPSs) and the latest technologies in endpoint protection, in addition to malware incident response.” 1

With faster and more comprehensive visibility into indicators of compromise and malware behaviors on endpoints such as laptops or desktops, IT security professionals are far better equipped to identify and respond to advanced threats with Lastline and Bit9 + Carbon Black in place.

“Our shared commitment to interoperable platforms that support rapid response to enterprise security threats with end-to-end endpoint and network security makes this partnership with Bit9 + Carbon Black a natural fit,” said Brian Laing, VP of Products for Lastline. “Undersecured endpoints are a primary source of enterprise data leakage, which makes the Lastline Breach Detection Platform, and the ability to correlate malware detection and response across endpoints and the network, a powerful complement to best-of-breed endpoint security solutions such as Bit9 + Carbon Black.”

The software-based Lastline Breach Detection Platform allows integration partners to tap into advanced malware protection for email, file, Web content and mobile applications. Lastline’s full-system emulation sandbox detects advanced threats including evasive malware that is crafted to bypass traditional sandboxes.

“It is well understood that attacks and compromise are the new normal, and legacy security systems do not solve the problem of today’s advanced threats. Integrating the Carbon Black open platform and Lastline’s Breach Detection Platform extends real-time advanced threat prevention, detection, analysis and response to every endpoint and server in an enterprise,” said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black.
