LightCyber Unveils Technology Alliance Program for Cybersecurity

LightCyber has announced the formalized LightCyber Technology Alliance Program (LTAP).

This dovetails with the release of a new software interface designed to promote swift and efficient detection and response processes by working with other security, networking, application and IT solutions.

HPE and Gigamon are the first partnerships announced as part of the formalized program and new API, while  Check Point Technologies and Palo Alto Networks integrations were built previously. The emphasis of LTAP is to facilitate interoperability with other important products or technologies; to create or utilize APIs enabling necessary communication and functionality; to educate about joint solutions and capabilities; and to promote best practices and streamline implementation.

Through LTAP, the LightCyber Magna platform for sharing information and enacting responses interoperates with a broad ecosystem of products. Initially there are nine technology areas that current and future partners participate, including:

  • Firewalls, Web Gateways
  • Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Systems
  • Visibility Platforms
  • Virtual Private Networks (VPN)
  • Virtualization
  • Cloud Applications, Platforms and Infrastructure
  • Network Access Control (NAC)
  • IT Workflow and IT Service Management (ITSM)
  • Authentication

“Customers have invested significant resources in their existing networking, security, threat prevention and incident response infrastructure that they want to leverage for optimal security posture,” said Jason Matlof, executive vice president, LightCyber. “We create a win-win for the customer by leveraging these existing assets while also enhancing the role that Magna plays in the broader detection and response process. In turn, the Magna platform benefits from capabilities in our LTAP partners’ products.”
