BOSTON & TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hexadite, creator of the only agentless intelligent security orchestration and automation platform, today announced industry-first support for Mac and Linux-based devices. By extending its capabilities to additional operating systems, the company confirms its commitment to mitigating security incidents on any device and becomes the first solution capable of automating the end-to-end investigation and resolution process on machines running Mac and Linux.
As usage of Apple devices in enterprise environments continues to grow, they’ve become a much larger target for cyber criminals. According to a recent survey of enterprise IT professionals, a wide majority (68 percent) said that they witnessed an increase in the usage of Macs in 2015. At the same time, OS X malware was five times more prevalent last year than it was during the preceding five years combined, according to a recent report from Carbon Black.
“The volume and complexity of cyber-attacks are overloading cyber security teams that simply don’t have the resources they need. Investigating different operating systems requires a specialized skillset and knowledge, and we’re seeing from customers that security teams are having a hard time keeping up-to-date knowledge of all OSs. These are among the main reasons why artificial intelligence and automation are critical to mounting an effective defense against attackers,” said Barak Klinghofer, chief product officer and co-founder at Hexadite. “Automating the investigation and remediation of a threat amplifies the capabilities of a security team. By extending support to Mac and Linux machines, our customers know their network – and every device on it – is fully protected so any attack can be stopped quickly and automatically.”
Hexadite amplifies the capabilities of a security team by automatically and intelligently performing the same steps that a security analyst would implement to address a threat. Once a company’s detection systems (SIEM, endpoint solution/EDR, IDS, Gateway anti-malware detection, etc.) identify a threat, Hexadite aggregates relevant information from the network and devices. Its intelligent, proprietary algorithms and tools analyze the information to identify whether an alert is a false alarm, a low level threat or a security breach. Based on best practices codified in the system, Hexadite automatically determines the best course of action for each alert, and applies targeted mitigation efforts to stop the full extent of a breach.
These capabilities can now be applied to all network devices, including those running Mac and Linux. For more information, please visit http://www.hexadite.com/.
Hexadite is the only agentless intelligent security orchestration and automation platform for Global 2000 companies. By easily integrating with customers’ existing security technologies and harnessing artificial intelligence that automatically investigates every cyber alert and drives remediation actions, Hexadite enables security teams to amplify their ability to mitigate cyber threats in real-time.
