Bit9 + Carbon Black buys VisiTrend to combine analytics and UI with endpoint security
The world of postantivirus endpoint security continues to undergo substantial change, and Bit9 + Carbon Black (Bit9 + Cb) remains one of the key players in that evolution. With the purchase of VisiTrend, Bit9 has enhanced an incredibly important but oftenneglected capability – effective user interface and experience (UI and UX). It’s easy to throw some charts onto a security product dashboard, or some data queries into a report, but all too often we’ve seen little thought into how useful that data is from the security analyst’s chair. As the combination of mass data collection in security increases, the combination of the right analytics and effective UI/visualizations becomes more and more critical.

Top 10 Oil and Gas Enterprise Provider
As a top-10 provider of products and services used by leading petroleum exploration and production companies worldwide, this U.S. enterprise was missing a solution that could provide continuous data collection at the endpoint and integration with tailored, relevant threat intelligence. To manage and even create their own intelligence, the company needed a way to receive and rank data from three primary sources—information on targeted attacks gathered by trusted industry groups; intelligence reports and indicator feeds from leading security vendors; and open source intelligence—before deploying it for detection and monitoring.
Corporate Brochure: Endpoint Threat Prevention, Detection and Response
A new generation of threats is attacking your endpoints and servers—you need a modern defense. Today’s attackers are after the data and intellectual property on your endpoints and servers. If you’re relying on traditional endpoint security, such as antivirus, you’re putting your organization at risk. AV doesn’t see or stop targeted attacks, nor does it help you respond to an incident. You need to arm your endpoints so that you can easily see and immediately stop advanced threats.
Next-Generation Endpoint Security: Top 10 Checklist
Compromise is inevitable, but a massive data breach does not have to be. When evaluating products, selecting a next-generation endpoint security solution can be a daunting task. Leverage these 10-essential items when evaluating a next-generation endpoint security solution.

Blocking CryptoLocker with Advanced Threat Protection
This Threat Advisor will examine how CryptoLocker adds a couple of new twists to familiar advanced-attack techniques used in ransomware to devastating effect for those who are unprepared. We’ll show you the keys to detecting and preventing Cryptolocker (and other advanced attacks) from executing. First and foremost is the use of policies that prevent CryptoLocker from executing on any endpoint, anywhere.
Don’t Get Burned by Flame
What is Flame? Flame is the latest high profile cyber attack making the news. It has so far been detected in Middle East countries. Flame is more than simply a virus or worm – it is basically a cyber espionage toolkit, containing the most comprehensive set of sleuthing technologies in a single piece of malware. It can monitor and steal data from a computer’s microphone, screen, keyboard, Bluetooth, WiFi and network, among its known capabilities. It can propagate via USB or directly over a network. It can use several different types of data encryption and compression to store and then exfiltrate data to a controllable set of command-and-control servers.
Building Sophisticated Detection Mechanisms Leveraging Patterns of Compromise
The attackers of today are more sophisticated than ever. In recent years, we have acquired a wealth of evidence related to data breaches and other incident scenarios that indicate just how sophisticated and focused attacks are becoming. Download this free white paper by Dave Shackleford, principal consultant for Voodoo Security and senior SANS instructor, to learn about the state of detection today, detecting anomalous behavior leveraging patterns of compromise and the power of threat intelligence and data sharing.
SANS Survey Maturing and Specializing: Incident Response Capabilities Needed
Hackers used to break into a system, steal as much data as possible and get out, without worrying about detection. Today, however, they have learned to be patient, harvest more data, and cause significant security and financial effects. Because of this, organizations must detect and respond to incidents as quickly, efficiently and accurately as possible.
