SAN JOSE, Calif., July 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- . (NASDAQ:FSCT), a leading internet of things (IoT) security company, and (NASDAQ:CBLK), a leader in next-generation endpoint security, today announced a new integration to fortify endpoint defenses and accelerate threat containment across enterprise networks. The combines ForeScout’s agentless visibility capabilities with Carbon Black’s advanced endpoint protection, offering intelligence from Carbon Black for Indicators of Compromise (IoCs), threat hunting, and ForeScout’s automated remediation and threat response.
“Enterprises are at risk as they continue to lack visibility into the devices connected to their networks as well as confidence that their corporate endpoints are properly configured, patched and free of malware,” said Brendan O’Connell, vice president of product management, ForeScout. “The most prevalent attacks target traditional corporate endpoints and the vast majority exploit known software vulnerabilities and basic configuration errors. By integrating with Carbon Black, we are taking an important step to help our mutual customers harden their endpoint defenses and keep threats out.”
According to , traditional antivirus solutions are only able to detect endpoint compromises 47 percent of the time, indicating that signature-based defenses are no longer sufficient in protecting modern enterprises. The research also found that 42 percent of breached endpoints involve employee-owned laptops, supporting that most organizations are unaware of a significant number of unmanaged endpoints on their network – BYOD, guest or IoT devices – which often remain invisible to most security tools. If undetected, compromised devices can be used as launch pads to target higher-value assets, gain access to sensitive information and cause significant business impact.
Now, joint customers can leverage ForeScout’s integration with Carbon Black’s Cb Response and Cb Protection for advanced endpoint protection and threat intelligence to proactively combat threats across Carbon Black and ForeScout-managed endpoints, and orchestrate workflows to isolate and remediate compromised devices.
“By integrating with ForeScout, an industry front-runner in device visibility and automated response, we believe we are enabling our customers to gain unmatched threat hunting and containment across their enterprises,” said Tom Barsi, senior vice president of corporate and business development at Carbon Black. “As a result, security teams can accelerate threat response in order to reduce the negative effects of potential security incidents.”
The integration between ForeScout and Carbon Black will provide joint customers with:
