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

RKON uses Carbon Black to rapidly detect and respond to attacks and accelerate remediation efforts for its customers

CHICAGO—October 1, 2014—RKON Technologies, a leading managed cloud solutions provider for Fortune 2000 companies, specializing in emerging technologies and security, today announced it has joined the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an incident response partner. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection, and response.

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

“Incident response is now a key offering for RKON,” said RKON CEO Jeff Mullarkey. “By partnering with Bit9 + Carbon Black, we’re equipping our team with the most progressive detection and response solution on the market and delivering to our customers a mature, always-on information security program.”

RKON is a leader in managed cloud solutions that empower enterprises with high performance and reliable, scalable, and secure designs. Clients turn to RKON to deliver best-in-class technology-enabled solutions to solve their toughest challenges from Hosted Virtual Desktops, Disaster Recovery, Managed Security, to Managed Virtualization. RKON’s passion around early adoption, innovation and high quality design and implementation has been the cornerstone of its culture since founding in 1998.

“Incident response is a critical component of any successful security program,” said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. “This partnership demonstrates RKON’s commitment to providing their customers with outstanding services and technology.”
