Ziften Unveils New Modular Extension Platform for On-Demand Detection and Response

Ziften unveiled its Modular Extension Platform, enabling users to develop fully customized mitigation and collection modules within the Ziften Open Visibility framework. Extension modules allow users to take customized actions to block and contain security incidents, mitigate IOC’s, manage risk and compliance, and collect new information on demand. With no additional cost to customers, Ziften delivers a seamless modularity to the endpoint, placing the power of detection and response directly in the hands of users responsible for protecting the integrity and security of their businesses. Users can define, develop, and deploy mitigation, detection and collection capabilities that are specific to their business environment within hours, rather than having to wait months for legacy endpoint vendors to schedule features into their roadmaps. Examples of customized capabilities include: automated discovery of unmanaged/rogue devices, terminating a malicious process, blacklisting or whitelisting an application, network quarantine/isolation, file deletion, registry key modification/deletion. Additionally, the Ziften Modular Extension Platform allows users to create their own customized and automated policies. When Ziften detects an Indicator of Compromise (IoC), the Modular Extension Platform can invoke application blocking or quarantine a system from the rest of the network, manually or automatically. The Modular Extension Platform is now generally available as part of Ziften 4.6.

Council Rock School District Implements Integrated Security Solutions of Lancope, Inc. and Ziften to Obtain Better Network Visibility

Lancope, Inc. and Ziften announced that the Council Rock School District (CRSD) has implemented the companies' integrated security solutions to obtain better network visibility across its 15 schools, 13,000 users and 5,000 endpoint devices. With Lancope and Ziften, CRSD now has continuous visibility into its network and endpoint activity to detect both external and insider security threats. Lancope's sophisticated behavioral analysis can automatically detect and trigger an alert when something abnormal happens, and then CRSD administrators can seamlessly pivot to the Ziften solution to drill into the endpoint for additional context. As a result, the school district is saving vast amounts of time on threat detection and incident response and is also able to leverage the Lancope and Ziften solutions for other critical efforts such as capacity planning.

Ziften Eliminates Data Breach Guesswork and Reduces Cyber Attack Response Time by 70%

Ziften announced general availability of Ziften v4.5 to deliver unprecedented visibility, all the way to the endpoint, for enterprise security teams. Ziften’s continuous endpoint visibility solution reduces threat detection and mitigation time by 70% " on average from 14 hours to 4 hours " with the ability to stop the attack from spreading, potentially eliminating millions in costs, and saving a company’s reputation with their customers, employees, partners, and investors. With the cost of data breaches increasing by 23% since 2013 and the hourly cost for incident response surpassing $400, the mean time to identify and respond to attacks has become a business imperative. Ziften’s latest release addresses this issue directly by building upon the company’s purpose-built endpoint detection and response solution with several new features that provide extended visibility, enhanced incident response, and rapid analysis, empowering security teams to identify and respond to potential attacks faster. The solution has also introduced several integrations that amplify organizations’ currently deployed products in both security and network operations, as well as automated integration with a team’s workflow and skillset. Global organizations are already integrating Ziften with network, systems, and security management tools, as well as the National Vulnerabilities Database (NVD), and Active Directory. The robust functionality of Ziften merges operational efficiency and security prowess to provide unparalleled organizational resiliency. Ziften is deployed in minutes, not days. It has ultra-low resource consumption and leaves only a negligible footprint while maximizing data storage retention. Additional features and benefits include: Ziften ZFlow™ provides greater network visibility by providing full visibility, contextual intelligence, user behavioral analysis, and integration into previously deployed security tools, eliminating the guesswork in discovering cyberattacks; Fetching executables from endpoints provides continuous access to any binary that has executed in environment, regardless of whether it was downloaded or brought in via removable media; Out-of-the-box National Vulnerabilities Database (NVD) integration, giving continuous insight into vulnerable applications running on endpoint; Integration with Palo Alto’s WildFire, Splunk, Lancope, Active Directory, AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange OTX, ServiceNow, SolarWinds, and any SIEM; Expanded suspect executable analysis from endpoint using the Ziften endpoint collector for submission to Palo Alto Wildfire for threat analysis; Expanded help desk integration through SolarWinds and WebHelpDesk, which are now alert delivery options, integrating Ziften continuous endpoint monitoring with desktop service and support workflows; Instant SIEM integration of Ziften alerts with CEF-formatted real-time alerting enabling correlation with other log data captured in SIEM; Windows and OS X patch level tracking, including availability and successful/failed patches; Enterprise-class dashboards for both security and operational insight; Enhanced compliance monitoring tracks and reports both policy-mandated and prohibited agents and applications across the endpoint population, while providing continuous audit confirmation to ensure what should be running is running and what should not be running is not running.
