Provides Context and Prioritization of Alerts to enable Speedy Containment of Detected Threats on Endpoints.

Waltham, Mass. - August 5, 2015Digital Guardian the only endpoint security platform purpose built to stop data theft, today announced it will join Blue Coat's Endpoint Alliance Ecosystem as a founding member. Digital Guardian’s Data Aware Endpoint Security Platform will provide validation and containment of threats discovered by Blue Coat’s network security portfolio on endpoints running Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. The integration enhances security operations and greatly speeds incident response.

The Digital Guardian Data Aware Endpoint Security Platform protects intellectual property and other sensitive data against insider threats and advanced external attacks targeting the endpoint. The Digital Guardian endpoint agent provides the most complete visibility and control on host systems to detect advanced malware and prevent it from compromising critical systems. Unlike signature-based anti-virus solutions, which only address known threats, the Digital Guardian solution is able to detect and block malware behavior as it unfolds in real time. Digital Guardian also protects host systems when they are most vulnerable: when users are off the company network and unprotected by corporate network defences.

By joining the Blue Coat Endpoint Alliance Ecosystem, Digital Guardian will integrate with Blue Coat’s security portfolio to enhance organizations’ malware detection capabilities, accelerate time to resolution and provide incident response teams with a comprehensive view during an investigation that includes activity across the network and all its endpoints. Alerts from Blue Coat network security solutions can be automatically validated and prioritized with Digital Guardian’s visibility from the endpoint. Incident responders can immediately respond to high priority threats by quarantining endpoints, killing malicious processes and blocking further infections.
