Ziften, a Texas company that provides cloud, endpoint and security services, has introduced turnkey managed detection and response (MDR) services to help MSSPs and other organizations improve their threat identification and mitigation capabilities, according to a prepared statement.
The Ziften MDR services portfolio includes the following:
- Managed Assess: Provides assessment processes and reports to help organizations evaluate asset management, asset performance, licensing, vulnerability state, policy compliance, anomalous behaviors and other security concerns.
- Managed Hunt: Delivers managed endpoint and detection (EDR) for client devices, servers and cloud virtual machines (VMs).
- Managed Response: Allows organizations to request remote and/or on-site incident response escalation and recommended policy actions based on investigations and response activities.
The MDR services address the EDR challenges of organizations dealing with capability or resource constraints, Ziften CEO Charles Leaver (pictured above) stated. They enable organizations to overcome these limitations, Leaver said, and improve their overall security posture and capabilities.
What Is Ziften?
Ziften offers a unified systems and security operations (SysSecOps) platform designed to help MSSPs, enterprises and government agencies minimize endpoint security issues and accelerate their cyber threat response
Over the past year, Ziften has experienced 80 percent year-over-year customer growth and 100 percent year-over-year revenue growth, according to the business. The company also has made several recent moves to further enhance its cloud, endpoint and security services portfolio.
The ZFlow App and TA enable Splunk Enterprise and Splunk Enterprise Security (ES) users to leverage a Ziften-generated extended NetFlow network protocol from endpoints, servers and cloud VMs. That way, Splunk Enterprise and ES users can "see what they are missing at the edge of their network, in their data centers and in their cloud deployments," Ziften stated.
In addition, Ziften earlier this month updated its Zenith endpoint security platform to provide vulnerability assessment, threat detection and incident response in cloud VMs running Linux operating systems, the company said in a prepared statement.
