CIPHER Joins “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an Incident Response (IR) Partner

MIAMI—February 24, 2015—CIPHER, a leading information security firm, today announced it has joined the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an IR partner. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response.

As a “Connect” IR partner, CIPHER uses the Bit9 Security Platform and the Carbon Black software to help its customers remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As the CIPHER team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, they use the Bit9 Security Platform and 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 CIPHER to move rapidly to contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.

“We always seek cutting-edge technology to arm our global team to provide the most advanced services and products to our clients,” said Graham Ward, director of CIPHER. “Forming a strategic alliance with Bit9 + Carbon Black enables us to enhance our capability to provide our clients with advanced threat protection, threat detection and incident response services.”

“Increasingly, leading organizations are turning to teams like CIPHER as their trusted security partner,” said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. “Teaming with CIPHER puts the leading detection and response technology in the hands of an extraordinary class of security professionals.”
