Lockheed Martin's Threat technology and Cybereason's Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) Platform, a cyber-attack program, have been combined to create Wisdom EDR, a maximized system for protecting companies from cyber-attacks, Lockheed announced recently at the RSA 2016 conference in San Francisco.

Angie Heise, vice president of Lockheed Martin Commercial Cyber, described the partnership as a way of developing the best product of its kind.

“Cybereason’s market-leading endpoint threat detection and response capabilities complement our cyber-security offerings, providing customers a best-of-breed EDR solution that is driven by our unique threat feed intelligence and enhanced by our powerful ‘analyst on demand’ program,” Heise said.

Lockheed Martin Commercial Cyber used an Intelligence Driven Defense philosophy to protect infrastructure at Fortune 1000 and Global 1000 companies from cyber-attackers by using information about the attackers against them.

Cybereason uses Silent Sensors, which collect data and send it to their Cybereason Malop Hunting Engine to identify malicious operations, or malops, which are then run through the Incident and Response Console to get TRACE information. TRACE stands for Timeline, Root Cause, Adversarial Activity, Communication and Endpoints. Lockheed Martin has developed Cybereason's process, running all Endpoints through its own analysis program, “Analyst on Demand.”

“Organizations will significantly benefit from the first solution to incorporate Lockheed Martin’s threat intelligence feed into an advanced EDR solution," Cybereason CEO Lior Div said. "The combination of Lockheed Martin’s Threat Intelligence, the Cybereason Detection and Response Platform and Lockheed Martin’s leading Analyst services is a winning trifecta for enterprises combating advance persistent threats targeting their organizations. Launching Wisdom EDR, powered by Cybereason, is proof positive that market leaders like Lockheed Martin believe in the merits of our enterprise EDR platform to detect and mitigate advanced attacks.”
