As a "Connect" IR partner, CSRA uses Carbon Black's leading security solutions, Cb Enterprise Protection and Cb Enterprise Response, to help its customers remediate cyber-attacks and breaches. As the CSRA team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, they use Cb Enterprise Response to pinpoint each endpoint and server on which malware has landed and reveal the entire "kill chain" of the attack. This enables responders to identify where and how the attack started quickly and efficiently.

This enhanced visibility enables CSRA to contain attacks rapidly and accelerate remediation efforts. CSRA uses Cb Enterprise Protection to deploy, automate and tailor protection policies based on users, lines of business and system types. As the world's most widely adopted application control solution, Cb Enterprise Protection delivers the unmatched flexibility, performance, scalability and enterprise quality required to shift the balance of power back to security teams fighting to stay ahead of the changing threat landscape.

"Partnering with Carbon Black further enables us to provide our customers with the leading-edge, managed security services they need to defend their networks and protect sensitive data," said John DeSimone, executive vice president, Delivery & Operations group. "As we lead our government customers on a next-gen digital journey, Carbon Black's enterprise protection and response solutions will play a critical role."

"CSRA and Carbon Black are a very powerful cyber-security combination," said Tom Barsi, senior vice president of business development for Carbon Black. "The CSRA team is exceptionally talented. We are thrilled they'll now be bringing Carbon Black's endpoint protection, detection and response capabilities to their managed security services customers."
