Cyphort announces product integration with Tanium Endpoint Platform
Santa Clara, CA, April 23 – Cyphort, a provider of Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) solutions, has announced the integration of its payload analysis capabilities with the Tanium Endpoint Platform that will enable Global 2000 companies to better combat advanced persistent threats. The integration of Cyphort’s payload analysis into Tanium IOC Detect, part of the Tanium Endpoint Platform, will provide a new level of endpoint visibility and control to combat against next-generation threats, helping to not only reduce the time it takes companies to detect and respond to incidents, but also increase mitigation velocity.
Gartner’s Five Styles of Advanced Threat Defense report1 states, “Payload Analysis solutions provide detailed reports about malware behavior, but they do not enable a post compromise ability to track endpoint behavior over a period of days, weeks or months. Enterprises that seek that capability will need to use the incident response features of the solutions in Style 5 (Endpoint Forensics).”
The integration of Cyphort and Tanium bring together Payload Analysis with Endpoint Detection and Response to allow for object submission from the endpoint to the payload analysis engine for a verdict on unknown files and applications. For example, if the verdict is malware, Cyphort can create an Indicator of Compromise (IOC) for the specific threat and feed it into Tanium IOC Detect to query all of the endpoints across the organization and look for their presence on the intended target and any other machines to confirm if there is infection within seconds. In addition, Tanium can perform the desired remediation action across all of the compromised systems within seconds, such as quarantining a machine, killing a process or deploying a patch.
“Today’s threat landscape is at a whole new level because the hackers have upped their game, making it vital for companies to identify and protect their critical intellectual properties,” says Jeremy Carlson, senior director, business development at Cyphort. “With our payload analysis capabilities integrated with Tanium’s 15-second endpoint detection and response capabilities, we are not only able to analyze all potential malicious objects coming into an organization, but dramatically increase the speed and scale by which organizations detect and respond to incidents.”

General availability for the Cyphort product integration will be available in August. For more information on the integration, please visit www.cyphort.com.
