Cybereason, the leader in future ready attack protection, is pleased to announce a partnership with Ensign InfoSecurity , one of the Asia Pacific’s largest pure-play cybersecurity firms, to expand the suite of cybersecurity solutions and services that Ensign offers to protect its Asia Pacific customers from the evolving cyber threats.
The partnership enables mutual customers access to elite threat hunting, next generation detection and response capabilities, and delivers actionable security intelligence to address evolving cyber risks faced by organisations and their distributed workforce.
“Partnering with Ensign, a premier and trusted cybersecurity leader enables cyber defenders to take the fight directly to the adversary across endpoints, the enterprise and everywhere cyber battles are fought,” said Eric Nagel, Vice President of Business Development and Investor Relations, Cybereason.
“Ensign’s visibility and reach provides Cybereason with the access we need to engage with organisations across Asia Pacific and are committed to delivering value with our leading endpoint protection platform. We see great synergy in our capabilities and alignment in our cybersecurity vision for this region. We are excited about how we can deepen our collaboration with Ensign.”
This collaboration will enable Ensign’s customers access to Cybereason’s world-class Cybereason Defense Platform, a combination of endpoint detection and response (EDR) and endpoint prevention (EPP) capabilities. Cybereason’s offerings complement and extend Ensign’s already well-established visibility, threat hunting and Managed Security Services portfolio. Customers will benefit as it allows them to detect threats faster, monitor activities across both networks and endpoints with actionable intelligence, and leverage guided remediation tailored specifically to organisations’ unique digital environment and cybersecurity requirements.
With the rapid adoption of cloud, advent of IPV6 and 5G, and an increase in endpoint devices and applications that are connected to organisation’s network which reside both inside and outside of the traditional security perimeter, organisations face a rapidly expanding attack surface. Additionally, threat actors are launching increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks against organisations, including wateringhole attacks and polymorphic malware likeEmotet.
“Organisations today are exposed to an exponentially larger digital attack surface and increased vulnerabilities as the industry experiences convergence of on-premise work practices together with remote users on home networks. As organisations start looking at long-term cyber resilience strategies, we are seeing an increased demand among our customers for a transformed security operations model that allows them to optimise their cyber security capability, make faster response decisions and boost resilience through Managed Detection and Response,” said Roland Lau, Vice President of Managed Security Services, Ensign InfoSecurity.
“We selected Cybereason as our partner because they’re a trusted name in Endpoint Detection and Response. This partnership provides us with the opportunity to leverage Cybereason’s world-class EDR technology to bolster our existing capabilities. This will allow us to not only detect threats sooner, but respond to them more effectively, bringing more value to our customers. Cybereason’s expertise, high customer satisfaction ratings and regional capabilities make them a great fit for our partnership” added Ronald Lau.
