Interoperability of Bit9 Parity Suite with the ArcSight ETRM Platform Brings Advanced Threat Protection via Application Whitelisting to ArcSight Customers
Washington, D.C. -- Sept. 20, 2010 -- Bit9, the leader in Advanced Threat Protection, announced today that its Bit9 Parity Suite Application Whitelisting solution has achieved Common Event Format (CEF) certification for its interoperability with the ArcSight Enterprise Threat and Risk Management (ETRM) platform. Additionally, Bit9 has made the certified solution commercially available.
The CEF is an open log management standard that improves the interoperability of security-related information from different security and network devices and applications.
The Advanced Persistent Threat targets end users and leverages e-mail, blogs, IM, podcasts and other collaborative resources as attack vectors for distributing malware. These targeted attacks, stealth and unique to an organization, put sensitive data at risk and hinder productivity. Companies need to ensure that employees have access to every technology necessary for success while operating within a safe and reliable environment. Bit9 Parity Suite together with the ArcSight ETRM platform provides customers with:
Continuous monitoring of all endpoint configurations
Threat detection to assess the reputation of all software and isolate embedded malware and,
Threat prevention with Application Whitelisting to ensure only trusted software is allowed to run
The interoperability between Bit9 and the ArcSight ETRM platform enables ArcSight customers to aggregate, filter, correlate, and analyze security events – including the Bit9 Parity whitelisting solution – all from one user interface, helping drive down management costs while increasing security.
