NetWorks Group Joins “Carbon Black Connect” Partner Program as an MSSP Partner

ANN ARBOR, Michigan.—August 7, 2017—  NetWorks Group, a leading provider of security monitoring and ethical hacking services today announced it has joined the “Carbon Black Connect” Partner Program as a managed security services provider (MSSP) partner.

As an MSSP partner, NetWorks Group uses two of Carbon Black’s leading security solutions, CB Defense and CB Response, to help its customers detect, prevent and respond to the most advanced cyberattacks.

CB Defense is a cloud-based, next-generation antivirus (NGAV) solution for desktops, laptops, and servers that combines advanced protection with detection and response capabilities. The NetWorks Group team uses CB Defense to protect organizations from the full spectrum of cyberattacks, including the increasingly prevalent non-malware attacks. CB Defense is powered by Carbon Black’s breakthrough streaming prevention technology, which collects, correlates and analyzes endpoint events, in real time, enabling organizations to identify and stop an attack while it builds.

As the NetWorks Group team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, they use CB Response, to pinpoint each endpoint and server on which an attack has landed to reveal the attack’s root cause. This enables responders to identify where and how the attack started quickly and efficiently. This enhanced visibility enables NetWorks Group to contain attacks rapidly and accelerate remediation efforts for its customers.

“Partnering with Carbon Black enables us to bring market leading endpoint detection and response solution to our customers.” said David Howard, NetWorks Group vice president of business development. “Our dedicated team of security experts and well developed processes and tools for managed threat detection and response will ensure protection of our customer’s assets 24x7x365. We empower organizations without sufficient resources and security expertise to defend and respond against advanced threats.”

“NetWorks Group and Carbon Black are a powerful cybersecurity combination,” said David Creed, director of business development for Carbon Black. “The NetWorks Group team is very talented. We are thrilled they’ll now be bringing Carbon Black’s leading endpoint security solutions to their customers.”
