NetCitadel and Webroot Partner to Bring Security Intelligence to the Enterprise -- NetCitadel strengthens threat management offering with Webroot security intelligence
 


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., and BROOMFIELD, Colo., Oct. 28, 2013 -- NetCitadel, Inc., the pioneer in innovative threat management solutions, and Webroot, a leader in cloud-based security intelligence solutions, today announced their partnership to deliver enhanced security intelligence and threat context to enterprises facing sophisticated security attacks and Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs).

The explosion in both volume and sophistication of new malware and APTs has overwhelmed security analysts with alerts from traditional threat detection and enforcement solutions. While next-generation threat detection technologies and traditional SIEM products can generate thousands of security alerts each day, the volume can be overwhelming for IT security teams. These alerts often do not provide sufficient context for security analysts to take immediate action, requiring tedious and time-consuming manual investigation to verify, prioritize and initiate the proper response.

To enable rapid understanding of threats, NetCitadel will now embed Webroot® IP Reputation Service into its Threat Management Platform (TMP), providing relevant contextual data such as IP reputation, threat type, and geo-location data for security incidents. NetCitadel customers will gain the benefit of the Webroot® Intelligence Network™ services and its constantly updated data feed on hundreds of millions of IP addresses worldwide to receive the most comprehensive and accurate IP reputation and security intelligence data available today.

“We are pleased to work with NetCitadel to enhance their Threat Management Platform offering for enterprise customers,” said Scott Merkle, VP of Enterprise and OEM Sales at Webroot. “By leveraging Webroot’s dynamic big data analytics and automated machine learning approach to security intelligence, NetCitadel customers will experience dramatic improvements in their security efficacy and marked reductions in the time required to identify new and existing IP threats.”

Webroot IP Reputation Services provide real-time context data for security incidents, including whether a particular IP is malicious and the type of threat. This increases efficiency by significantly reducing the time to manually investigate IP addresses. NetCitadel correlates this information across alerts, adds additional threat context, scores the threat, and presents it to security analysts in a single-pane-of-glass.

“Integrating best-of-breed IP technologies follows our strategy of offering the best solution choices for our customers,” said Neil Stratz, VP of sales and marketing at NetCitadel. “By combining the additional security intelligence from Webroot with NetCitadel’s context-aware platform, security analysts are effectively slamming the door on modern malware and targeted attacks.”
