Bradford Networks Integrates With FireEye Threat Prevention Platform to Deliver Customized Solution for Rapid Threat Response

Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye Correlates High Fidelity Security Alerts From the FireEye NX Platform to Contain Advanced Cyber Threats on Compromised Endpoints in Seconds

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 15, 2014) -  Bradford Networks™, the leading provider of rapid threat response solutions, today announced the availability of Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye, which empowers organizations to contain advanced threats in seconds. Developed following Bradford Networks' technology alliance with FireEye, this is a customized version of the recently announced Network Sentry/RTR solution. By automating the complex threat triage and response process, Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye minimizes the risk to assets and intellectual property, protects the brand, and reduces the impact, time, and cost resulting from cyber threats.

"Traditional incident response is a manual process that can take days traversing disparate security tools, IT domains, and endpoints," said Steve Pataky, senior vice president of worldwide channels and alliances at FireEye. "FireEye and Bradford Networks' solutions work together to automate the incident response process for cybersecurity teams, eliminate the barriers that delay investigations, and reduce the impact and remediation costs of an advanced targeted attack. As an Acceleration Partner in our Fuel Program for Technology Alliances, we are pleased to support Bradford Networks as they bring this complementary solution to the market for our customers."

Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye leverages its unique Live Inventory of Network Connections (LINC) to automatically correlate high fidelity security alerts from the FireEye NX Platform with detailed contextual information on compromised endpoints, users and applications. Armed with this information, Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye triggers an automated response based on the severity and business criticality of the incident.

Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye enables users to:

  • Reduce threat containment time from days to seconds
  • Isolate, restrict, or block compromised endpoints from the network in real-time
  • Bridge the workflows between the SOC (security operations center) and the NOC (network operations center) by automatically correlating silos of disparate information
  • Add contextual information to security alerts and events to gauge business criticality
  • Leverage historical network forensics to trace the point of compromise

"The traditional network perimeter is eroding and endpoint compromise is inevitable. While some preventive techniques can help, the best approach is to limit exposure, continually advanced detection, and respond to incidents quickly," said Dale Tesch, director of managed and professional services, NTT Com Security. "As a partner of both FireEye and Bradford Networks, this new solution enhances the value of our security portfolio, and will enable us to help our customers minimize risk and cost."

"Bradford Networks has a strong, established strategic partnership with FireEye. This new solution, which seamlessly integrates with FireEye's NX Platform, is a natural evolution of this partnership. With the release of Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye, our mutual customers can now instantaneously take action on security threats detected by FireEye," said Sanjit Shah, vice president of business development, Bradford Networks. "With spending on threat analysis and protection solutions expected to grow to $1.2 billion in 20171, Bradford Networks is well positioned to leverage the advancements in threat detection by automating threat response."

Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye is generally available and can be deployed as an appliance, virtual appliance, or cloud service, and agentless. Network Sentry/RTR for FireEye scales to address enterprises of any size.
