Polito, Inc. Joins “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an Incident Response Partner

WOODBRIDGE, VA—March 17, 2015—Polito, Inc., a leading information security firm, today announced it has joined the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an incident response (IR) partner. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response.

As a “Connect” IR partner, Polito uses Carbon Black to help its customers remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As the Polito 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 Polito to move rapidly to contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.

“We secure the data and critical systems for our clients,” said Fred Mastrippolito, Polito, Inc.’s president and chief executive officer. “With Carbon Black, our team now has a leg up when it comes to advanced detection and immediate incident response.”

“Polito values its customers’ data,” said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. “Now, with Carbon Black in their hands, the Polito team can protect that data better than ever before.”
