SpearTip Joins “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as an MSSP and IR Partner

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

ST. LOUIS—May 14, 2015—SpearTip, a leading cyber security and cyber counterintelligence firm, today announced it has joined the “Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect” Alliance Program as a managed security services provider (MSSP) and incident response (IR) partner. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response.

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

“We often say that the best defense is to outmaneuver the adversary,” said Jason Wood, vice president of operations for SpearTip. “Now equipped with Carbon Black, our team has the visibility, detection capabilities and response power to stay ahead of attackers better than ever before.”

“Equipping the SpearTip team with Carbon Black makes for a very powerful combination,” said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. “We’re very pleased that SpearTip will bring the unmatched capabilities of Carbon Black to their growing base of customers.”
