SAN DIEGO and ARLINGTON, Va., Nov. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — AttackIQ™, a leader in the emerging market of attack simulation, today announced the integration of their FireDrill™ platform with Endgame’s endpoint protection platform. Customers benefit from rapid and continuous validation of protection against the most comprehensive scope of attacker techniques and technologies seen in today’s targeted attacks. With Endgame and AttackIQ, organizations receive a far more realistic understanding of their ability to protect against nation-state level attackers before data theft or damage.
Core to the offering is Endgame’s endpoint protection platform that unifies prevention, detection, and threat hunting to stop known and unknown attacker behaviors at scale. Endgame is rapidly becoming the standard endpoint protection platform across the Department of Defense and commercial sector due to its layered protections and ease of use for inexperienced analysts. Endgame’s recent nation-state emulation exercise against the MITRE ATT&CK Matrix – a framework for adversarial techniques enterprises encounter daily – further validates the scope of its protections against the most malicious attack types.
AttackIQ similarly holds MITRE’s ATT&CK Matrix as the gold standard for protection against targeted attacks. The newest FireDrill™ platform release allows enterprises to rapidly test security stacks to detect and block against adversary techniques, tactics, and procedures. With AttackIQ, organizations will receive constant insight into the effectiveness of the company’s security controls and posture.
“We have continued to see a massive escalation in the number and frequency of cyber-attacks over the past two years. Only through security stack integrations can enterprise organizations hope to get ahead of their adversaries. We believe by integrating continuous security validation with best of breed endpoint solutions like Endgame, customers will have the ability to ALWAYS BE CERTAIN of their security posture,” said Carl Wright, Chief Revenue Officer of AttackIQ.
The partnership provides customers with the ability to continuously and completely automate the process of running attack scenarios, correlating alerts, and validating Endgame’s breadth and depth of ATT&CK Matrix coverage. Key benefits of the joint platform include:
- Automate the comprehensive testing of advanced attacks
- Extend the coverage and depth of validation efforts
- Gain deeper understanding of vulnerabilities and risk
- Understand the impact of threats to your organization
- Better protect against potential threats
- Free up red teams’ time to focus on critical priorities
- Prioritize security investments
“For too long, Endpoint security has been synonymous with Antivirus (AV),” said Lyndon Brown, Director of Corporate Development at Endgame. “As techniques previously limited to nation-state actors have become the norm, it is incumbent on the vendor community to respond. For a number of years, Endgame has used MITRE’s ATT&CK Matrix to demonstrate our differentiated value to customers. We are honored to partner with AttackIQ to empower customers to independently and continuously validate our performance.”
