Leading TAP Manufacturer, Garland Technology, Teams Up With Advanced Malware Defense Provider, Cyphort, to create win-win security setup.
Buffalo, NY (PRWEB) July 29, 2015 -- Garland Technology and Cyphort, Inc. began a technology partnership in July 2015. Cyphort’s Advanced Threat Defense Platform (ATDP), when combined with Garland Technology’s network access TAPs, helps secure IT networks from the next generation of cyber attacks.
Garland Technology provides network access hardware with multiple functions, including load balancing, aggregation, filtering and bypass technology, which guarantee a replica of the traffic to the Cyphort solution.
The partnership emerged from customers need to provide quality replication of traffic to the Cyphort platform. With Garland’s solution, dropped packets are not an option – their technology ensures that a complete copy of all data on the live network is delivered to the Cyphort solution. Traditional mirrored ports on network switches are not reliable and often miss packets, potentially reducing the effectiveness of security solutions that rely on detailed traffic analysis.
Cyphort is the next generation of advanced threat detection and leverages the contextual information surrounding an object in web traffic that ensures more accurate verdicts are rendered. With network speeds increasing all over the globe, traditional mirrored ports become unreliable in providing all the contextual information as well as all the objects available for detonation. Cyphort and Garland have teamed up to provide scalable solutions for their security clients.
“The threat landscape is constantly changing and Cyphort is consistently ahead of the curve,” said Chris Bihary, Garland’s CEO. “Cyphort’s Advanced Threat Defense Platform provides customers a complete, real-time picture of an attack and the potential spread within an organization. I’m thrilled our TAPs will feed their clients’ defenses.”
“Security works best when you can afford the ability to check everything coming into your network,” said Jeremy Carlson, senior director, business development at Cyphort. “Now that we’re partnered with Garland Technology, we can assure that our clients are feeding all of the data necessary to make our part of the equation shine. It’s really a way to offer our clients a win-win situation.”
Cyphort will be attending Black Hat 2015 on August 5 - 6 in Las Vegas, NV. The conference, “built by and for the global InfoSec community,” features training, briefings and presentations for IT security. To learn more about our partnership, please stop by Cyphort’s booth #759.
