Bit9 + Carbon Black Announces the Addition of EY’s Managed SOC to the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Partner Program

Trusted advisor to leading organizations now uses Carbon Black detection and response as a key differentiator in its IT services portfolio

WALTHAM, Mass.—Sept. 2, 2015— Bit9 + Carbon Black, the market leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response, today announced that EY has signed up for the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Program in support of its Managed Security Operations Center (SOC) offering.

EY uses the Carbon Black endpoint detection and response solution to help its customers remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As the EY security team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, they can leverage Carbon Black to pinpoint each endpoint and server on which malware has landed and reveal the entire “kill chain” of the attack, so responders can quickly see where and how the attack started. This enhanced visibility enables EY to rapidly contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.

“There has been rapid growth in the number and sophistication of cyber attacks,” said Ken Allan, EY’s Global Information Security Leader. “Our mission is to provide organizations with the most advanced defenses, enabling immediate detection and rapid response to such attacks. The solutions we use are tailored specifically to mitigate against threats from advanced, interactive attackers that put their critical business assets at risk. That’s why we have chosen Carbon Black to complement our toolset for its outstanding detection and response capabilities.”

Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black, said EY’s customers will benefit greatly from this relationship. “EY’s team of information security service experts is second to none in the industry. With that team now using Carbon Black, the industry’s top detection and response solution, the tide in the battle against advanced threats and targeted attacks has just taken a significant turn for the better.”
