Fujitsu, Cybereason Partner for Real-Time Threat Hunting Platform

Fujitsu now offers the Cybereason Deep Hunting Platform as part of its Global Managed Security Service, according to a prepared statement. The news comes after Fujitsu Americas last month integrated Cylance artificial intelligence-based endpoint protection technology into its security operations center (SOC) and security services.

With the Cybereason integration, Fujitsu customers can leverage the Deep Hunting Platform's endpoint detection and response (EDR) and data analytics capabilities, the companies said. They also can use the Deep Hunting Platform to defend against cyber threats and identify cyberattacks in real-time.

The Deep Hunting Platform combines EDR, next-generation antivirus (NGAV), managed threat hunting and threat intelligence in one solution and a single lightweight sensor, Cybereason stated. It is built on Cybereason's cybersecurity data analytics architecture and enables organizations to correlate disparate data points to identify malicious activities.

Also, the Deep Hunting Platform allows organizations to collect and evaluate behavioral data in real-time, Cybereason indicated. It asks up to 8 million questions per second based on the data collected, and by doing so, helps organizations analyze and address security risks.

Cybereason Appoints CFO, Chief Strategy and Product Officer

In addition to the Fujitsu partnership, Cybereason this month hired Russell Stein as its CFO and Roi Carmel as its chief strategy and product officer.

Stein most recently served as EVP of corporate development and investments and CFO at Intellectual Ventures, an intellectual property and licensing company. He also has held various executive roles at wealth management firm Merrill Lynch.

Carmel has more than 20 years of business and product leadership experience. Prior to joining Cybereason, Carmel served as CMO and corporate strategy officer at continuous testing platform provider Perfecto Mobile and held multiple executive roles at HP.
