Damballa and ForeScout Partner to Further Automate Defense Against Advanced Threats

Partnership to enable enterprises to reduce risk and accelerate mitigation 

Damballa, the experts in advanced threat protection and containment, and ForeScout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced a partnership and planned technology integration between the Damballa Failsafe and ForeScout CounterACT™ platforms to enhance visibility and automate remediation of advanced threats within enterprise networks. Leveraging ForeScout ControlFabric technology, the combined solution will enable enterprises to expedite time to discovery and containment and provides the manpower required to keep up with advanced threats.

Damballa’s automated breach defense system helps enterprises fill the security gap between failed prevention and their incident response. Damballa Failsafe automatically discovers and validates successful infections with certainty; so incident responders can quickly mitigate risk. As part of ForeScout’s ControlFabric Technology Partner Program, Damballa Failsafe will be integrated with ForeScout CounterACT to enable customers to automatically quarantine or log devices deemed ‘infected’ by Damballa. Damballa will provide ForeScout CounterACT with the details of the infected device for efficient, automated policy-based mitigation.

Based on its real-time visibility and policy-based mitigation capabilities, ForeScout CounterACT will leverage the actionable information about known and unknown threats from Damballa Failsafe. CounterACT will receive the malware details from Damballa Failsafe and allows enterprises to take actions based on triggered policies, which can quarantine infected endpoints, isolate the communications channels of breached systems, block the infection source or automatically install hot patches as needed on endpoints.

Damballa has also joined the ForeScout ControlFabric Technology Partner Program. The program allows ForeScout to further collaborate with industry-leading hardware and software vendors, examine ways to team their solutions with ForeScout CounterACT and deliver greater customer value.
