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

ALLENDALE, N.J.—September 29, 2014—STIGroup 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, STIGroup uses Carbon Black to help its customers identify and remediate cyber attacks and breaches. As the STIGroup team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, STIGroup 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 STIGroup to move rapidly to contain attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.

“Rapid and aggressive Incident detection and response is vital to a modern information security program,” said Dominic Genzano, CEO of STIGroup, Ltd. “Equipping our team with Carbon Black gives us the ability to detect and respond to advanced threats faster than ever before. This partnership will definitely enhance the services that we bring to our customers, who will realize the tremendous benefits of this next-generation server and endpoint security software.”

STIGroup has the resources necessary to structure and implement a complete Information Security program for a business, or to supplement an existing program by providing resources and expertise to fill a gap in the program or execute on a tactical project. The company has strategic partnerships with product vendors, law enforcement, and legal representation to facilitate the handling of these areas as they relate to Information Security.

“Incident response is no longer a reactive process,” said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. “Our mission is to equip organizations with the ability to actively prepare for a breach by detecting, responding to and remediating threats as they happen. Our partnership with STIGroup brings us another step closer to better securing today’s top businesses.”
