Ramon Peypoch is the Chief Product Officer for ProtectWise.

Navigating the number of enterprise security point products used to defend against today’s threat landscape can be overwhelming. Some sources say the average enterprise uses 75 security products to secure its network. Reducing the number of products security teams need to manage may seem like the right goal, but currently, it’s unrealistic. Each product plays an important role by providing necessary information to security professionals, which enables them to detect and respond to sophisticated attacks.

Instead, organizations can adopt an approach to security that makes it easy to access data, regardless of where it’s been produced, and derive new insights that add value and protection.

ProtectWise provides cloud-delivered network detection and response (NDR) capabilities through The ProtectWise Grid, a platform that helps organizations detect and remediate security events. Integrations with strategic technology partners are a key component to our approach. Through them, we enable security analysts to rapidly investigate and remediate any incident they find, from endpoint to network.


Integrating for Visibility, Detection and Response From the Network to the Endpoint

Carbon Black and ProtectWise first partnered in 2016 to provide joint customers with comprehensive endpoint-to-network detection and response capabilities. This integration combines the endpoint detection and response (EDR) capabilities of Cb Response and Cb Defense with the NDR capabilities of The ProtectWise Grid. Through this integration, security teams can automatically detect advanced network attacks and receive access to Carbon Black’s endpoint data on-demand (such as a host name associated with an IP address or endpoint forensics) all from within the ProtectWise platform.

Analysts can now not only view processes that ran on the endpoint and connected to the network, but can actually see data sent on the network. This integration makes it easier to identify the root cause of an attack, and rapidly take action to contain and stop it.

Visibility is the foundation of any good security program. Using network and endpoint context in The ProtectWise Grid increases visibility and puts analysts on the path to better decision-making. But EDR and NDR integrations are just the beginning; incorporating threat detection capabilities from other security products in your stack increases clarity. Additional integrations enable The ProtectWise Grid to feed correlated threat detections and pervasive visibility to existing network enforcement points. By working closely with Carbon Black and other strategic technology partners, ProtectWise is providing a new approach to how enterprises acquire, manage and operate security – evolving network security to provide the protection, detection and response capabilities that organizations need to outsmart their adversaries.
