Multi-vendor approach for first NDR offering aligns with NIST cybersecurity controls
IronNet Cybersecurity, the leader in Network Detection and Response (NDR) and Collective Defense, announced today the Enterprise Security Program Review (ESPR), a joint security offering with Unlimited Technology, Exero and DirectDefense. The first of its kind in the NDR space, the Enterprise Security Program Review measures the current and desired future state of an organization’s infrastructure against the National Industry Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity controls.
The ESPR will assess, test and review an organization’s existing security controls, analyze risk exposure, and help implement individually tailored security solutions. Applying a holistic approach to cybersecurity, this approach addresses cyber risks missed by single-solution providers. ESPR is the only comprehensive solution to support both large and small enterprise customers ensuring the installation, modification and operation of a successful cybersecurity defense platform.
- DirectDefense will conduct the information security assessment of the client infrastructure and test effectiveness of security controls and existing tools. As a managed security service provider (MSSP), they will also offer managed security services for IronNet.
- IronNet’s Collective Defense platform provides behavior-based analytics at the network level that detect anomalous activity at individual enterprises — then allows organizations of all sizes to share threat data anonymously, at network speed, to increase visibility into incoming cyber attacks. Collective Defense allows customers to leverage a wider pool of cybersecurity expertise, threat intelligence, and higher-order behavioral analysis.
- Exero provides health-based monitoring for all endpoint devices in a customer’s network. This increased visibility to endpoints helps visualize trends and patterns regarding the endpoint behavior of a network in real time. Exero offers an API for automation in the kill chain tied directly to malicious threats identified by IronNet’s artificial intelligence.
- Unlimited Technology provides the procurement of services and technology, manages the rollout, provides additional staffing where required and delivers physical and logical infrastructure upgrades.
“The recent SUNBURST attack was a wake-up call that organizations need a defense-in-depth strategy that includes real-time threat intelligence sharing and collaboration,” said IronNet founder and co-CEO, General (Ret.) Keith Alexander. “The Enterprise Security Program Review is a groundbreaking offering that will help organizations define and greatly enhance their cybersecurity posture across a number of important dimensions.”
