[South Africa] Google Cloud and Cybereason Join Forces to Drive XDR Innovation
Cybereason, a leader in operation-centric cyber attack protection, and Google Cloud have announced a joint collaboration between the two companies to create and bring to market unprecedented Extended Detection and Response (XDR) across endpoints, networks, cloud and workspaces at record-setting speed.
Cybereason delivers the most comprehensive protection available on the market today, analysing more than 23 trillion security-related events per week -- five times the volume of any other solution in the market. Using its patented Malicious Operations (MalOps™) engine, Cybereason reveals the full attack story across every device, user identity, application and cloud deployment.
Meanwhile Google Cloud’s cybersecurity analytics platform Chronicle ingests, normalises, and analyses petabytes of data from the complete IT environment on planetary-scale infrastructure.
The combination of these capabilities delivers a cloud-native XDR solution, Cybereason XDR powered by Chronicle, that automates prevention for common attacks, guides analysts through security operations and incident response, and enables threat hunting with precision at a pace never before achieved.
“Google Cloud’s ability to hunt through petabytes of data at the speed of search, combined with Cybereason’s revolutionary correlation capabilities and behavior-based detections delivers unparalleled speed and accuracy in the prevention, detection, and response of advanced attacks,” said Cybereason CEO and co-founder Lior Div.
“We founded Cybereason with a mission to reverse the attacker's advantage and return the high ground to the defender, and we are excited to have Google Cloud partner with us in furthering the success of this mission.”
Cybereason has succeeded in protecting customers and experienced impressive growth over the last year, being recognised as a leading innovator by respected third-party organisations.
Where many solutions failed, Cybereason protected customers from headline-making attacks like SolarWinds, the Microsoft Exchange Server attacks, and crippling ransomware attacks from DarkSide, REvil and other ransomware gangs.
That level of protection is why Cybereason was recognised on the CNBC 2021 Disruptor 50 list, and received top scores across every aspect of testing in the MITRE Engenuity ATT&CK Evaluations.
“Google Cloud is dedicated to delivering the industry’s most trusted cloud to accelerate customers’ digital transformation efforts with security products that meet them wherever they are. Cybereason continues to disrupt the market and deliver on their vision for a future-ready extended detection and response defense platform,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO, Google Cloud.
“We’re excited to partner with Cybereason to help customers quickly secure their hybrid and cloud environments with the combined capabilities of Google Cloud and Cybereason’s XDR services.”
