Home Security SecureWorks to offer Carbon Black Cb Defense as a managed service

SecureWorks will partner with leading next-generation endpoint security company, Carbon Black to provide managed, next-generation anti-virus (NGAV) protection to clients to block sophisticated security threats.

SecureWorks  is the first managed security service provider to partner with Carbon Black on Cb Defense. It will offer Advanced Endpoint Threat Prevention (AETP), a next-generation anti-virus service.

Using a combination of endpoint and cloud-based technologies, Cb Defense delivers a security model known as “streaming prevention” to block malware as well as increasingly common attacks that exploit memory and scripting languages, such as PowerShell.

Matt Eberhart, vice-president of global product management at SecureWorks, said, “We are excited to be working with Carbon Black to deliver a solution that blocks a broad spectrum of attacks that traditional antivirus generally misses.

"Our clients tell us about the need for a simple solution that combines the black-and-white decisions of next-gen anti-malware protection with a service that also has the necessary endpoint telemetry to rapidly respond to adversary activity that you can’t prevent.”

By leveraging Cb Defense, SecureWorks’ AETP service will offer enterprises and SMB clients:

  • Protection against advanced attacks: Carbon Black’s new “streaming prevention” technology prevents malware, ransomware, zero-days, and non-malware attacks.
  • SecureWorks intelligence: SecureWorks adds curated threat intelligence and analytics, going beyond point-in-time protection with the visibility to respond to threats identified by less certain triggers. SecureWorks experts from its Senior Intrusion Analyst teams provide guidance eradicating adversary activity that cannot always be blocked.
  • 24x7 Monitoring: Non-stop coverage from SecureWorks gives small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprises alike the ability to offload the time and energy of managing endpoint security to a team of experts skilled at detecting and defending against advanced threats.

Tom Barsi, Carbon Black’s senior vice-president of business development, said, “Customers can now enjoy the benefit of breakthrough prevention technology combined with world-class detection and response services. They no longer must make a choice about which is more important. This offering provides full protection with one technology in Carbon Black and one service provider in SecureWorks.”

The new service will be available in the second quarter of 2017 and enhances the Advanced Endpoint Threat Detection (AETD) service already offered by SecureWorks leveraging Red Cloak and Carbon Black technologies.
