Bit9 + Carbon Black and Stroz Friedberg form partnership for incident response

Stroz Friedberg is a specialized risk management firm built to help clients solve the complex challenges prevalent in today’s digital, connected, and regulated business world

WALTHAM, Mass. – July 31, 2014

Bit9® + Carbon Black®, the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, today announced that Stroz Friedberg, a global leader in investigations, intelligence and risk management, has joined the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an incident response partner.

As a “Connect” IR partner, Stroz Friedberg gains access to Carbon Black as an option to help its clients remediate cyber attacks and breaches. The alliance also gives Bit9 + Carbon Black customers access to Stroz Friedberg’s incident response specialists and security risk consultants to create a unified defense against cyber threats.

As the Stroz Friedberg team investigates an intrusion and identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, Carbon Black pinpoints each endpoint and server on which malware has landed and reveals the entire “kill chain” of an attack. This information enables responders to quickly and easily see where and how an attack started, as well as additional investigative leads.

“The process of ‘incident response’ is constantly and quickly evolving,” said Tom Barsi, Vice President of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. “Today, incident response is no longer an after-the-fact ‘post mortem’ process. Organizations need to accept that a compromise is inevitable, and they need to prepare for it. Incident response is now a fluid, continuous process that rewards organizations who prepare themselves to detect, respond to and remediate threats as they happen. Stroz Friedberg joins a select group of companies participating in the “Connect” program that represent the best of the best in their respective segments of security.”

Stroz Friedberg is a world leader in digital risk management serving all industries. Its IR team is comprised of federal prosecutors, former Air Force and FBI Special Agents, Military Intelligence responders, and Defense Department specialists, with certifications in Information System Security, Financial Crimes investigations, and Information Privacy. In handling data breaches, Stroz Friedberg uses cutting edge investigative techniques along with its experienced responders to provide critical answers for an affected organization as quickly as possible.

“Carbon Black provides our world-class IR team with a fast, comprehensive look at everything that’s occuring on the enterprise endpoint,” said Erin Nealy Cox, Executive Managing Director of Stroz Friedberg. “Our alliance with Bit9 + Carbon Black advances our core mission of continually delivering to our clients the swiftest and most comprehensive response possible to breaches in their networks. Having access to the innovative Carbon Black product gives Stroz Friedberg and our clients a distinct advantage in battling cyber attacks.”
