Fidelis Cybersecurity Boosts Detection and Shortens Response and Resolution Times for Security Incidents with Real-Time Attack Visualization and Monitoring for Endpoint Devices

Fidelis Cybersecurity™, the leading provider of solutions for detecting and stopping advanced cyberattacks, announces new time-saving features, enhancements and usability improvements to its Fidelis Endpoint™ product. Fidelis Endpoint 6.1 shortens the time to investigate and resolve security incidents and provides real-time insights into attackers when they infiltrate your endpoints and hide in your environment.

“The attacks are happening on laptops, servers and other endpoints,” says Fidelis Cybersecurity Senior Vice President of Products Brian Karney. “Immediate and long-term visibility is critical when it comes to limiting the damage attackers can do. With Fidelis Endpoint, security teams can immediately and retrospectively detect suspicious activity across endpoints and get one-click access to the related information they need to understand and act on that alert.”

Highlights of the enhancements included in Fidelis Endpoint 6.1 include:

  • Real-Time Event Monitoring: The introduction of new centralized event monitoring provides real-time detection and visibility into what is happening on endpoints across the enterprise. With this release, Fidelis Endpoint now continuously records and streams key endpoint activities including file, process, registry, network, URL and DNS into a centralized event repository. In addition to improved detection, the historical event data holds valuable clues that let you trace an alert back to its original source. When you get new intelligence from Fidelis or your threat intelligence services, you can apply it to the historical events to detect if you’ve been compromised in the past.
  • Enhanced Detection Engine: A new detection engine built on top of the centralized event monitoring system provides real-time threat detection. Detections are driven by a growing set of behavioral rules -- also known as indicators of attack and powered by the Fidelis Threat Research Team -- that can be configured to take automated actions, such as tagging for later review, isolating the machine, or acquiring RAM. The new detection engine supports third party/custom indicator feeds and has the ability to create custom behavior rules.
  • Event Driven User Interface: When an attack occurs, a new event-driven user interface provides an interactive play-by-play view that shows how the incident unfolded so security teams can take appropriate action to resolve the issue. Users can also filter through data and quickly tag an event, see similar events, or easily create an alert rule when they discover something malicious to drive future and retrospective detections.
  • Fidelis Network Integration: The introduction of event monitoring enhances the product’s integration with Fidelis Network. Now, when Fidelis Endpoint receives an alert from Fidelis Network, it automatically queries the event repository to determine what took place and validate the alert. Results happen within seconds and an alert rule is dynamically created to watch across others systems for the endpoint activity that triggered the Fidelis Network alert.
  • Script Support for All Jobs: All jobs are now executed using the peer-to-peer script engine, which enables users to perform queries/jobs and receive results in near real-time across hundreds of thousands of endpoints.
  • Enhanced Endpoint Context: Users can now quickly access additional context about endpoints of interest. This lets users quickly see who is currently logged into a system, the host name, IP address, OS, event data associated with a specific endpoint and the job history for a particular endpoint – all in one location.

“Until this release, users have been forced to choose between vendors who had optimized their endpoint products for query speed or real-time threat detection from centralized events, or endpoint forensics,” says Fidelis Cybersecurity Chief Technology Officer Kurt Bertone. “Fidelis Endpoint 6.1 is the first and only endpoint detection and response product with an architecture optimized to support all three of these use cases in a single product.”

Fidelis Endpoint 6.1 is generally available today.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...
You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. ...

The material was delivered interac...
The taxi industry never saw Uber coming. Startups are a threat to incumbents like never before, and a major enabler for startups is that they are instantly “cloud ready.” If innovation moves at the pace of IT, then your company is in trouble.

In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Don Browning, VP of Cloud Architecture at Turner, posited that disruption is inevitable for comp...
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.).

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input.

"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The Internet giants are fully embracing AI. All the services they offer to their customers are aimed at drawing a map of the world with the data they get. The AIs from these companies are used to build disruptive approaches that cannot be used by established enterprises, which are threatened by these disruptions.
