Bit9+Carbon Black Integrates with Infoblox for Better Visibility and Automated Incident Response to Endpoint Threats
Gone are the days when an enterprise organization could just put a firewall at the edge of their network to block undesirable traffic and be assured that employees would solely access applications and services from the inside of the network.
Today, employees, partners, and customers are increasingly accessing sensitive data on endpoints connected not just from the inside, but more often from outside the corporate network. Ease of access can end up compromising security of the data. Data exfiltration-related costs of incident response, recovery and resolution, loss of revenue, and negative brand impact can be significant, averaging $3.5 million in 2014, according to the Ponemon Institute 2014 Cost of Data Breach study.
To take a proactive stance against advanced threats on endpoints and subsequent damage, organizations need to unify network and endpoint security to provide “closed-loop” protection. DNS security plays an important role in defending against advanced persistent threats (APTs), malware and data exfiltration, but traditional endpoint threat detection and response solutions do not intercept DNS communications to-and-from malicious locations. Hence, integration with the DNS security layer is critical.
That is why Bit9 + Carbon Black has just announced an integration with our industry leading Infoblox DNS Firewall solution. Connecting Carbon Black’s next-generation endpoint threat detection and response solution with Infoblox’s DNS Firewall and threat intelligence can help enable joint customers to:
- Detect and stop advanced threats in real-time for endpoints anywhere (inside or outside the corporate network)
- Prevent endpoint communications to C&C servers and botnets
- Automatically respond to endpoint threats
To learn more about how your organization can benefit from this integration, check out the brief solution guide. If you’re in Las Vegas for the annual Black Hat USA conference, Bit9 will present a live demo of the integration on Thursday, August 6th a their booth, #735, at 1 pm. For any questions, visit the Infoblox booth, #865, on August 5th or 6th during Business Hall hours.
