"Overall, Ziften has a very competitive offering that provides endpoint security and management, and one that must be on every evaluation short-list." - Steve Broadhead, Broadband Testing Labs
AUSTIN, Texas (PRWEB) January 09, 2018
Enterprise organizations need to more effectively manage security risk exposures in an era of multifaceted attacks. Stovepipe cyber security tools and limited endpoint management have not worked. They only provide partial, point-in-time data that leaves gaps for security and IT teams to piece together manually.
Ziften, a provider of all-the-time visibility and control for client endpoints, servers, and cloud VMs, today announced industry-wide recognition of its Zenith systems and security operations platform. The company was cited by industry analyst firm Enterprise Management Associates (EMA), and successfully evaluated by independent lab, Broadband-Testing. The recognition adds to the momentum for Ziften after announcing integration of Zenith with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection by Microsoft in November.
Recognized as EMA Technology Innovator
EMA recently named Ziften Zenith as an “EMA Technology Innovator” as part of its 2017 Next-Generation Endpoint Security (NGES) Vendor Landscape and Five-Year Market Forecast. In its report and corresponding webinar, EMA highlights Ziften Zenith as a solution with a differentiated approach to defending the endpoint.
“Ziften services extend well beyond the normal NGES vendors,” said David Monahan, Research Director, Security and Risk Management, EMA. “Zenith provides continuous endpoint visibility and control for exceptional insight into the endpoint and its interaction with the network, enabling organizations to efficiently manage security risk exposures, and detect and respond to advanced threats that are attacking endpoints.”
Received Broadband-Testing’s Seal of Approval
Europe’s leading independent lab, Broadband-Testing recently awarded Ziften Zenith its Seal of Approval in its Ziften Zenith Review. Broadband-Testing’s hands-on deployment and evaluation of Ziften Zenith features and functionality highlighted the following key benefits:
- “Key to Ziften’s approach to endpoint security is total visibility. With its Zenith platform, Ziften has a product that ticks all the SysSecOps boxes and more.”
- “Deployment is simple, especially in a cloud-based scenario as tested. Scalability also looks to be excellent – the biggest customer deployment to date is in excess of 110,000 endpoints.”
- “Data analysis options are extensive with a huge amount of information available from the Ziften console - a single view of the whole endpoint infrastructure. Additionally, Ziften provides the concept of extensions for custom data collection, beyond the reach of most vendors.”
Steve Broadhead, Founder & Director of Broadband-Testing Labs, commented, “Overall, Ziften has a very competitive offering that provides endpoint security and management, and one that must be on every evaluation short-list.”
Continued Momentum After Integration with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection
Today’s announcement builds on the November 8 news that Ziften’s Zenith systems and security operations platform would integrate with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection from Microsoft and extend support to Linux and Mac in addition to Windows. The solution delivers a cloud-based, “single pane of glass” to detect, view, investigate, and respond to advanced cyber-attacks and breaches on Windows, macOS and Linux-based endpoints.
Ziften’s integration with Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection helps organizations speed detection of attacks and zero-day exploits, uncover the full scope of a breach, quickly respond to contain attacks and prevent recurrence, and as a result, increase overall security operations productivity.
Ziften delivers all-the-time visibility and control for any asset, anywhere - client devices, servers, and cloud VMs – whether on-network or remote; connected or not. Our unified systems and security operations (SysSecOps) platform empowers IT and security operations teams to quickly repair user impacting endpoint issues, reduce their overall risk posture, speed security threat response, and increase operations productivity. Ziften’s secure architecture delivers continuous, streaming endpoint monitoring and historical data collection for large and mid-sized enterprises, governments, and managed security service providers (MSSP). And Ziften helps extend the value of incumbent tools, and fill the gaps between fragmented, siloed systems.
