AUSTIN, TX: Ziften, developer of end point threat detection and response technology, to reduce threat detection and mitigation for endpoints, wipes out data breach guesswork and brings down cyber attack response dramatically with introduction of Ziften v4.5. The software delivers unprecedented visibility, all the way to the endpoint for enterprise security teams.

Reducing the threat detection and mitigation on an average from 14 hours to 4 hours, the solution has the ability to cease the attack from spreading, sealing security exposures where businesses are most vulnerable. The solution has also come up with several integrations that amplify organizations’ currently deployed products in both security and network operations, as well as automated integration with a team’s workflow and skill set.

“In business, time has always meant money, and today’s cyber attackers are getting faster, smarter, and more targeted than ever before, working their way around traditional prevention solutions and often getting straight to the endpoints. As a result, organizations may be compromised for days or even weeks without any visibility into malicious behavior,” points out Charles Leaver, CEO, Ziften. The robust functionality of Ziften is that it merges operational efficiency and security prowess to provide unparalleled organizational resiliency.

Extending a full visibility, contextual intelligence, user behavioral analysis, and integration into previously deployed security tools, Ziften ZFlow is a key feature incorporated in the software to provide greater network visibility by eliminating the guesswork in discovering cyberattacks.

Whether downloaded or brought in via removable media, the solution fetches executables from endpoints giving continuous access to any binary that has been executed in the environment while National Vulnerabilities Database (NVD) integration enables continuous insight into vulnerable applications running on your endpoint.

Ziften v4.5’s  enhanced compliance monitoring tracks and reports both policy-mandated and prohibited agents and applications across the endpoint population, while providing continuous audit confirmation to ensure what should be running  and what not shouldn’t be.  It also enables Windows and OS X patch level tracking, including availability and successful/failed patches along with enterprise-class dashboards for both security and operational insight.

In addition, the software can be integrated with Palo Alto’s WildFire, Splunk, Lancope, Active Directory, AlienVault’s Open Threat Exchange (OTX), ServiceNow, SolarWinds, and any SIEM.
