Ziften, provider of visibility and control for client devices, servers, and cloud VMs, announced a business and technology collaboration with Microsoft. The collaboration brings together Ziften’s Zenith systems and security operations platform, and Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection delivering 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.
Together, Ziften and Microsoft help 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. The integrated, cloud-powered approach supports the most highly complex multi-system, multi-cloud enterprise environments, giving business, government, and MSP customers the capability to:
- Extend Windows Defender ATP to macOS and Linux Systems: Customers can extend post-breach detection, investigation, and response to any asset, anywhere – client devices, servers, and cloud VMs – whether on-network or remote; connected or not. They get an integrated “single pane of glass” supporting Windows, macOS, and Linux-based systems.
- Secure Multi-Cloud, Windows and Linux-Based Environments: Organizations can overcome cloud monitoring and security concerns with visibility and control of all virtual operating systems deployed across any cloud service provider.
- Conduct 6 Month, Lookback Forensic Investigations: Customers can instantaneously search six months of machine timeline unifying security events from Windows, macOS, and Linux-based systems – both physical and virtual.
“Available in preview, Ziften enables Windows Defender ATP customers to extend their ATP service to non-Windows endpoints by deeply integrating Ziften’s solution for Mac and Linux into Windows Security Center”, said Moti Gindi, GM for Windows Cyber Defense, Microsoft. “This provides Sec-ops holistic protection and visibility across their Windows and non-Windows clients and ensures they can quickly and accurately detect, investigate and responds to attacks across their entire install base.”
