Managed security provider Secureworks have expanded their cloud security alliance with Carbon Black in a bid to augment their endpoint detection and incident investigation prowess. As per the terms of the deal, Secureworks will integrate their behaviour analytics solution Red Cloak with Carbon Black’s unfiltered data collection tool Predictive Security Cloud (PSC) to detect cyber threats.
According to Carbon Black, enterprises leveraging cloud products and technologies need continuous monitoring of cloud environments to ensure their security. They say that their current crop of customers have deployed 24/7 vigilance and end-point detection tactics to identify cyber threats.
By expanding their cloud security alliance with Secureworks, Carbon Black say that the unfiltered data collected by their PSC will be analysed and assessed by the former’s analytics prowess to identify risk-driven activities. They say that with Secureworks’ Red Cloak, enterprises can easily use insights provided by the same to instantly see and stop unknown attacks.
Speaking about this partnership, Victor Baez, Vice President, WW Channels of Carbon Black, commented:
Security teams are often challenged with having to keep up with the evolving nature of cyberattacks and efficiently responding.
By combining the deep insight of Secureworks Red Cloak behavioural analytics with the unfiltered data of the (PSC), we’ll better equip customers of all sizes – from SMB to Fortune 100 – with a more comprehensive view of threat-actor activity in their environments.
Secureworks claim that even though they have joined hands with Carbon Black, they aim to decouple their endpoint and analytics prowess to make their offerings broadly available in the marketplace. Delighted with this alliance, Wendy Thomas, Senior Vice President of Business and Product Strategy at Secureworks, commented:
This expanded partnership between Secureworks and Carbon Black will ensure that clients get more value from their choice of best-in-breed solutions.
