ATD to leverage Endgame’s signature-less malware detection and automated hunt to close protection gap with greater speed and accuracy for customers
Vienna, VA, December 15, 2016 — Veris Group LLC, one of the leading mid-sized cybersecurity services firms in the country, today announced that its Adaptive Threat Division (ATD), an industry-leading provider in adversary simulation and detection services, will utilize Endgame’s endpoint detection and response (EDR) platform to enhance detection, response, and threat hunting capabilities that eliminate security threats faster and with greater accuracy for customers.
This partnership leverages Endgame’s recently-announced platform enhancements that expand coverage of the attacker lifecycle to anticipate adversary innovations, including In-Memory Attack Detection and Malicious Persistence Detection capabilities. Endgame is the first and only endpoint security platform that combines prevention, detection and response in a single centrally managed dissolvable sensor to prevent attacks and eliminate new and already resident adversaries in time to stop damage and loss.
“We are excited to incorporate Endgame’s new signature-less and in-memory detection capabilities into our hunting methodology,” said David McGuire, Vice President of Veris Group’s ATD. “Advanced adversaries often attempt to avoid common detection mechanisms. Providing our Hunt teams with a toolset to pursue these threat actors is a significant step forward in our capabilities.”
The ATD maintains a diverse, highly-skilled team of seasoned red team operators, penetration testers, malware reverse engineers, vulnerability researchers, hunt analysts, application security experts, and software engineers dedicated to the advancement of adversarial capabilities and tradecraft. Among regular industry accolades received, team members particularly stand out as the foremost experts on offensive PowerShell, Active Directory reconnaissance/exploitation, and “fileless” malware. Dedicated to providing increased customer value and contributing to the community, Veris Group ATD team members are among the creators and maintainers of the following non-exhaustive library of popular toolsets including PowerSploit, Empire, BloodHound, and PowerForensics.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Veris Group’s ATD to deliver our best-in-class signature-less malware, in-memory, and hunt detection capabilities,” said Mark Dufresne, Director of Threat Research and Adversary Prevention at Endgame. “The ATD will now have the ability to automate early prevention and detection of sophisticated attacks, allowing them to disrupt the adversary lifecycle in their customers’ networks without the need for signatures. Analysis that used to take hours or days on a small number of endpoints can now be accomplished in a matter of seconds at scale with Endgame.”
