Ziften Technologies, a cloud, endpoint and server security provider, has integrated its Zenith threat detection, prevention and response solution into the Microsoft Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) platform.

With the integration, MSSPs can leverage Zenith in combination with Windows Defender ATP to identify suspicious activities that indicate the presence of threat actors using advanced fileless attack techniques across Windows, macOS, Linux and cross-platform environments, according to a prepared statement.

The Zenith-Windows Defender ATP integration simplifies the process of searching through networks to detect and isolate cyber threats, Ziften stated.

Windows Defender ATP empowers Zenith users with the ability to hunt for cyber threats and breaches across six months of endpoint behavioral and configuration data, Ziften indicated. Zenith users also can leverage the integration to perform cross-platform queries to identify potential threats such as lateral movement by threat actors across mixed endpoint enterprise environments.

In addition, Zenith users can contribute threat hunting queries, according to Ziften. These queries are available directly within the Windows Defender ATP advanced hunting console and GitHub repository.

Side note: Microsoft earlier this week announced plans to buy GitHub.

Ziften Joins the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association

Ziften in April joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, which enables security technology partners to work together to create integrated cyberattack detection and protection solutions. Now, Ziften and Microsoft mutual customers can access advanced endpoint detection and response solutions, cloud visibility and security solutions for Windows, macOS and Linux systems and other cybersecurity capabilities.

Meanwhile, Ziften in November announced a strategic business and technology collaboration with Microsoft. Ziften and Microsoft together planned to help organizations accelerate cyberattack and zero-day exploit detection, uncover the full scope of data breaches and increase their security operations productivity.

Ziften empowers IT operations and security teams to minimize endpoint risks and eliminate cyber threats. The company posted 100 percent year-over-year revenue growth and 80 percent year-over-year customer growth and continues to expand its channel reach.

The Ziften Activate Partner Program enables MSSPs and other channel partners to support security operations, IT operations, IT help desk and development and operations teams. It allows channel partners to integrate Zenith into their existing security offerings to provide visibility and security across customer endpoints, servers and multi-cloud environments.
