Cyphort and DB Networks Partner to Provide Full Spectrum Visibility

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Cyphort, the next generation APT defense company, announced today that it has partnered with DB Networks, a leader in database cybersecurity. Through this partnership, Cyphort and DB Networks will offer customers full spectrum visibility from the desktop and network perimeter to deep in the database.

“Being able to integrate with Layer 7 Database Sensor, Cyphort gains access to database security alerts that provide additional information around a lateral spreading virus trying to exfiltrate data.”

Cyphort’s Advanced Threat Defense platform will leverage event information from DB Networks’ Layer 7 Database Sensor to help increase fidelity on verdicts of malicious content. Both Cyphort and DB Networks leverage the power of machine learning coupled with behavior analysis, to provide detection that evolves with threats and protects against new zero-days, APTs and evasive attacks.

“Partnering with DB Networks further enhances Cyphort’s lateral capabilities,” says Anthony James, vice president of product and marketing at Cyphort. “Being able to integrate with Layer 7 Database Sensor, Cyphort gains access to database security alerts that provide additional information around a lateral spreading virus trying to exfiltrate data.”

Hackers are always trying to move and spread threats to as many locations as possible. From there, they typically look for escalated privileges for an attack on a database. Since the attack can be someone with database privileges, it is important to triangulate what the database is doing as well as the user. By combining these results, typically hidden threats become obvious.

"The combination of Cyphort and DB Networks provides enterprises with a comprehensive analysis of the kill chain," said Rami Shalom, vice president of product management at DB Networks. "Enterprises can now observe and mitigate risk throughout their entire infrastructure including risks effecting critical data assets, thereby focusing attention on the riskiest activities."
