The Invincea Platform—which includes the FreeSpace user protection software suite and the Invincea Management Service (IMS), a cloud-hosted management and threat intelligence service—currently protects more than 15,000 organizations around the world. By integrating ForeScout CounterACT—a real-time security platform that delivers visibility and automated control for devices, users, systems and applications attempting to connect to or on an enterprise network—enterprises can enforce safe online usage with for both enterprise and BYOD assets.
Containing the Threat
Invincea delivers protection from malware, whether it is advanced or conventional and whether the exploits are known, unknown or zero-days, by moving the most highly targeted applications on endpoints, the web browsers, PDF reader and Office suite, into secure virtual containers on the user’s device.
When a user trips across a malicious website or content, whether via a spear-phish, web-based drive-by or watering hole, the attack is contained, the malware is terminated, and forensics on the threat are collected and forwarded to the Invincea Management Service. The collected forensics from each attack are then fused with third-party and organic threat intelligence to understand the attack type and adversarial profile behind the attacks.
The combination of the two platforms is aimed to enable customers to efficiently scope, validate and maintain FreeSpace deployment in the enterprise. Invincea will also provide ForeScout with broader threat details to provide closed-loop, automated policy-based mitigation.
“As a financial services company, we anticipate regular malicious attacks from the Internet. We turned to Invincea as an extra layer of defense to protect our employees against what we see as our biggest threat—spear-phishing, watering hole attacks, drive-by-downloads and crime-ware encountered on the Internet,” said Chris Walsh, information security officer at Bank Leumi USA. “We also rely on ForeScout to gain visibility and enforce policy for users and devices connecting to our network—including home-use devices and BYOD. With the two companies integrating their solutions, we have the ability to ensure that all of our users’ machines are protected and respond to any machines not running FreeSpace so as to maintain a secure internal network.”
