Bit9 announced its Security Platform for OS X, which delivers the following:
- Continuously monitors and records all activity on Mac desktops, laptops and servers.
- Detects and stops Mac-targeted advanced threats and zero-day attacks without using signatures.
- Integrates with network security devices such as FireEye and Palo Alto Networks to accelerate incident response and ensure all files arriving on endpoints and servers are safe.
Visibility: Know what’s running on every Mac OS X endpoint and server—right now.
Detection: Real-time, signature-less detection of advanced threats and zero-day attacks.
Protection: Stop all untrusted software from executing on any Mac.
Forensics: A complete recorded history and full audit trail of all threat-related activity on every Mac for immediate incident analysis and response.
Network security integration: A first-of-its-kind integration with next-generation network security solutions from industry leaders such as FireEye and Palo Alto Networks for accelerated incident response and remediation.
Fran Howarth, security practice leader, Bloor Research comments: “Macs are a reality in the enterprise IT ecosystem, and as they proliferate, they are increasingly vulnerable to advanced threats and targeted attacks. It’s a big mistake for enterprise security teams to underestimate the potential risks their Mac deployments represent. Bit9 has delivered a version of its platform for Mac that addresses this growing problem with a true enterprise-class security solution that offers real-time monitoring and recording and the same level of protection against untrusted software it offers for Windows.”
