ENCODE Joins “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as a Managed Services Security Provider (MSSP) Partner in EMEA

ATHENS, Greece—March 5, 2015—ENCODE, one of the premier providers of IT security and digital risk management services and solutions, today announced it has joined the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an MSSP partner. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response.

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

“We’re in the business of protecting our customers’ valuable digital assets from advanced threats,” said Panos Dimitriou, chief technology officer of ENCODE. “With Carbon Black, our team now has the most advanced solution available to protect our customers better than ever before.”

“This partnership puts the market’s best detection and response technology in the hands of an extraordinarily capable team,” said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. “We’re thrilled to be partnering with ENCODE.”
