Ensign InfoSecurity (Ensign), one of the Asia Pacific’s largest pure-play cybersecurity firms and Cybereason, the leader in future-ready attack protection, have announced a partnership to expand the suite of cybersecurity solutions and services that Ensign offers to protect its Asia Pacific customers from the evolving cyber threats and security vulnerabilities faced in today’s new normal.
This collaboration will enable Ensign’s customers access to Cybereason’s world-class Cybereason Defense Platform, a combination of award-winning endpoint detection and response (EDR) and endpoint protection platform (EPP) capabilities. Cybereason has built a powerful, extensible analytics platform capable of detecting modern cyberthreats, as demonstrated through their strong prevention, detection, and response offerings. Cybereason’s offerings complement and extend Ensign’s already well-established visibility, threat hunting and Managed Security Services portfolio. Customers will benefit as it allows them to detect threats faster, monitor activities across both networks and endpoints with actionable intelligence and guided remediation tailored specifically to organisations’ unique digital environment and cybersecurity requirements.
With the rapid adoption of cloud, advent of IPV6 and 5G, and an increase in endpoint devices and applications that are connected to organisation’s network which reside both inside and outside of the traditional security perimeter, organisations face an expanding attack surface. Additionally, threat actors are launching increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks against organisations, including wateringhole attacks and polymorphic malware like Emotet.
“Organisations today are exposed to an exponentially larger digital attack surface and increased vulnerabilities as the industry experiences convergence of on-premise work practices together with remote users on home networks. As organisations start looking at long-term cyber resilience strategies, we are seeing an increased demand among our customers for a transformed security operations model that allows them to optimise their cyber security capability, make faster response decisions and boost resilience through Managed Detection and Response,” said Roland Lau, Vice President of Managed Security Services, Ensign InfoSecurity.
“We selected Cybereason as our partner because they’re a trusted name in Endpoint Detection and Response. This partnership provides us with the opportunity to leverage Cybereason’s world-class EDR technology to bolster our existing capabilities. This will allow us to not only detect threats sooner, but respond to them more effectively, bringing more value to our customers. Cybereason’s expertise, high customer satisfaction ratings and regional capabilities make them a great fit for our partnership” added Roland Lau.
“Partnering with a premier and trusted cybersecurity player such as Ensign enables cyber defenders to take the fight directly to the adversary across endpoints, the enterprise and everywhere cyber battles are fought. With Ensign’s visibility and reach provides Cybereason with the access we need to engage with organisations across Asia Pacific and are committed to delivering value with our leading EDR technology that offers highest security efficacy in the business,” said Eric Nagel, Vice President of Business Development and Investor Relations, Cybereason. “We see great synergy in our capabilities and alignment in our cybersecurity vision for this region. We are excited about how we can deepen our collaboration with Ensign moving forward.”
