Guidance Software has integrated with Lastline, a provider of advanced malware detection. The integration combines EnCase Endpoint Security with Lastline Enterprise to automate incident response workflows and greatly reduce the time from detection to triage and response.
“Sophisticated malware is no longer reserved for attacks on large organizations,” said Brian Laing, vice president of business development and products. “The proliferation of advanced and zero-day attacks to include midmarket and in some cases, the SMB market, reinforces the pressing need for enterprise-grade malware protection at all levels of the market. We are excited to partner with Guidance Software as an industry pioneer in rapid detection and response to offer our customers a streamlined workflow to greatly increase their ability to respond to advanced cyberattacks.”
The partnership means that Lastline Enterprise immediately shares threat intelligence with EnCase Endpoint Security when it detects advanced malware. EnCase Endpoint Security validates potential threats by enriching the data and providing a threat score that enables security teams to prioritize the response.
“Improving incident response workflows is critical as security teams face an ever increasing number of attacks,” said Guidance senior technical manager Paul Shomo. “Combining the incident response capability of EnCase Endpoint Security with advanced threat intelligence from Lastline will greatly increase the speed with which our customers can respond to security alerts. Guidance is committed to achieving maximum results and ROI for customers through integrations with leading cybersecurity providers like Lastline.”
