WatchGuard gains a HawkEye

By

Security vendor WatchGuard has acquired the HawkEye G threat detection and response technology from Hexis Cyber Solutions.

The acquisition of the HawkEye G threat detection and response technology is part of WatchGuard's plan to provide enterprise-grade security to small to midsize organisations, explained WatchGuard chief executive Prakash Panjwani.

"The combination of HawkEye G and WatchGuard will address the evolving threat landscape organisations face today by extending visibility from the perimeter to the end-point," he said.

HawkEye G combines behaviour-based endpoint detection, continuous endpoint recording, network deep packet inspection, security analytics, and policy-based automated and machine-guided responses to find and respond to threats.

WatchGuard vice-president of product management Andrew Young said: "HawkEye G's signature-free static and dynamic host heuristics, combined with its unified scoring model, provide unparalleled visibility in to what is happening on customer networks."

Work on integrating HawkEye G into WatchGuard's platform will begin immediately. Delivery is expected "in the coming months", according to Young, via WatchGuard's resellers and managed security service provider partners.

Hexis president Chris Fedde said: "Our goal with this transaction was to partner with a recognised security leader who could greatly expand the product's reach with sales and distribution while continuing to invest in the core technology.

"Globally recognised for their extensive security sales channel and best in class network security solutions, WatchGuard is an exciting home for the award-winning HawkEye G technology."
