General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions announced it is using Carbon Black as a key component of its incident response solution to help customers rapidly detect and remediate data breaches. Bit9® + Carbon Black® is the leader in endpoint threat prevention, detection and response.
An original partner in the "Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect" Alliance Program that launched in February 2014, General Dynamics Fidelis has expanded the partnership to bring its customers the benefits of Carbon Black's industry-leading endpoint threat detection and response solution. Now General Dynamics Fidelis' Network Defense and Forensics (NDF) team, an elite team of incident response and forensic experts, can use Carbon Black to supplement the network visibility, analysis and control provided by Fidelis XPS, its flagship network security solution. This allows the NDF team to pinpoint each endpoint and server on which malware has landed and reveal the entire "kill chain" of the attack, so they can quickly identify where and how the attack originated.
"Continuous monitoring and comprehensive network visibility are crucial to the success of incident response efforts," said Peter George, president of General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions. "In addition to the information continuous monitoring provides, it helps drive speed, which can be a critical factor during incident response. Our expanded participation in the 'Bit9 + Carbon Black Connect' Alliance better equips our team to help customers quickly detect, contain and remediate active breaches."
Supplementing the network information provided by Fidelis XPS, Carbon Black provides enhanced visibility into endpoints and enables General Dynamics Fidelis to rapidly identify and contain cyber attacks and accelerate remediation efforts.
The powerful combination of network and endpoint visibility provides a more complete picture of the severity of the breach, helping security analysts to decrease the time between detection and remediation.
"The incident response landscape is rapidly shifting," said Tom Barsi, vice president of business development for Bit9 + Carbon Black. "Today, incident response is a continuous process of proactively preparing for a breach by detecting, responding to and remediating threats—as they happen—before major damage is done.

The United States is reportedly facing a shortage of cybersecurity professionals — particularly for positions within the federal government because it does not offer salaries as high as the private sector.
