Infocyte HUNT to provide agentless threat hunting for defense-in-depth security to the US Federal government through preferred distributor
SAN ANTONIO, TX and WASHINGTON, DC | May 26, 2016
Federal government agencies have become a hot target for hackers and terrorists alike as illustrated by the OPM breach, making cybersecurity a top priority for these institutions. Infocyte, a provider of hunt technology that eradicates malware and persistent threats, announced today that it has signed a relationship agreement with immixGroup to make Infocyte HUNT™ available to the US government through their contracts and partners.
immixGroup, an Arrow company, is a value-added distributor providing reliable access for government agencies to a wide range of enterprise software and hardware products. The relationship agreement will enable immixGroup to work directly with Infocyte to grow their public sector business and accelerate the sales cycle. The Infocyte HUNT threat hunting solution will be on immixGroup’s contract vehicles and distributed through preferred business partners.
“We are pleased to work directly with immixGroup to bring Infocyte’s industry leading hunt solution to the US Federal markets,” stated Infocyte president and COO Kurt A. Mueffelmann. “There should be no higher priority for an agency than knowing if they’re breached. Infocyte HUNT automates the threat hunting process to empower agencies to hunt without a forensics specialist. Agencies can now have confidence that malware and persistent threats have been properly identified and remediated to prevent and limit damage, without the need for third party experts.”
Infocyte HUNT is designed specifically to detect if malware is present on network endpoints. It scans and detects the post-intrusion activity, active or dormant, of attackers who have successfully evaded an organization’s real-time defenses and established a beachhead within the network. It reduces the breach detection gap – the time that exists between infection and discovery – denying attackers the ability to persist, restoring trust in a network’s health.
