New ThreatSync correlation and scoring engine automates malware detection and remediation with real-time data from networks, endpoints and cloud intelligence
SEATTLE – January 24, 2017 – WatchGuard® Technologies, a leader in advanced network security solutions, today announced Threat Detection and Response (TDR), a new cloud-based service that gives small and midsize businesses (SMBs), distributed enterprises, and managed security service providers (MSSPs) the ability to detect advanced threats on endpoints, correlate this with data collected from the network and empower them to centrally respond. Now available with WatchGuard Total Security Suite (TSS), TDR is the only security service on the market that pairs detection and response capabilities on the endpoint with a comprehensive set of industry-leading Unified Threat Management (UTM) network security services.
“As cyber criminals continue to leverage increasingly varied and sophisticated threat vectors, many companies’ endpoints represent under-secured, unnecessary risks for customers, partners, and internal users.” said Andrew Young, SVP of product management at WatchGuard. “By correlating our enterprise-grade network security services with data collected from each individual device, WatchGuard can now provide actionable intelligence that enables comprehensive security from the network to the endpoint.”
TDR Features and Benefits
TDR further allows organizations to protect themselves from cyber threats by correlating events from their UTM appliances and their endpoints. This pinpoints malicious behaviors by using heuristics and threat intelligence, and scores them by risk and severity.
The new service includes the following features and benefits:
“As a longtime WatchGuard customer, we are excited about how Threat Detection and Response has tightly and easily integrated with our network defense to add powerful correlation capabilities,” said Andre Bromes, SVP and CIO/CISO of Goodwill New York / New Jersey (goodwillnynj.org), an organization whose mission is to empower individuals with disabilities, and other barriers to employment, to gain independence through the power of work. “The correlated detection and automated response features adds a missing layer to our security stack and have enabled us to immediately detect infections, and prevent them from spreading within our network. This streamlined approach has increased our ability to identify and deal with suspicious activity on our network, and is also saving us valuable resources like time and additional manpower."
