Help AG Joins ‘Carbon Black Connect’ Alliance Program As MSSP Partner
Help AG, a leading information security services and solution provider in the Middle East, today announced it has joined the ‘Carbon Black Connect’ Alliance Program as a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) partner. Carbon Black is the market leader in Next-Generation Endpoint Security (NGES).
As a ‘Connect’ IR partner, Help AG uses Carbon Black’s leading security solution, Cb Enterprise Response, to help its customers remediate cyber-attacks and breaches. As the Help AG team identifies malicious files used to execute an attack, they use Cb Enterprise Response to pinpoint each endpoint and server on which malware has landed and reveal the entire ‘kill chain’ of the attack. This enables responders to identify where and how the attack started quickly and efficiently, and enables Help AG to contain attacks rapidly and accelerate remediation efforts.
“Partnering with Carbon Black further enables us to provide our customers with the leading-edge, managed security services they need to defend their networks and protect sensitive data,” said Stephan Berner, CEO at Help AG. “As we lead our customers on a next-gen digital journey, Carbon Black’s enterprise response solution will play a critical role.”
“Help AG and Carbon Black are a very powerful cyber-security combination,” said Kevin Appelbe, senior regional manager of business development for Carbon Black. “The Help AG team is exceptionally talented. We are thrilled they’ll now be bringing Carbon Black’s endpoint detection and response capabilities to their managed security services customers.”
Help AG already holds the Authorized Solution Partner (ASP) and Security Service Provider (SSP) status with Carbon Black in the GCC. For over a year now, the company has leveraged the vendor’s endpoint security solution in its 24×7 Cyber Security Operations Centre to enhance its Managed Security Services (MSS) and Incident Response (IR) services. “As invest further into this successful relationship, we continue to drive additional value to our customers from the expertise that we have built on Carbon Black’s solutions,” concluded Berner.
