Invincea and ForeScout Partner to Protect End User Devices and Corporate Networks From Targeted Attacks

ForeScout Counteract to Enforce Enterprise-Wide Use of Invincea FreeSpace, Ensuring End User Devices -- Including BYOD -- Gain Advanced Cybersecurity Defenses

FAIRFAX, VA and CUPERTINO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/14 -- Invincea, Inc., the market leader in the use of secure virtual containers for user protection against advanced cybersecurity threats, and ForeScout Technologies, Inc., the leading provider of pervasive network security solutions for Global 2000 enterprises and government organizations, today announced the upcoming integration of the Invincea and ForeScout CounterACT™ platforms to enable continuous monitoring and prevention of advanced cyber attacks within enterprise networks.

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 globe. 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 -- with the Invincea platform, enterprises can enforce safe online usage with Invincea for both enterprise and BYOD assets.

Invincea delivers proven protection from malware, whether it is advanced or conventional and whether the exploits are known, unknown or zero-days. It does so 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, Invincea contains the attack, terminates the malware, collects forensics on the threat and forwards 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. As part of ForeScout's ControlFabric™ Technology Partner Program, Invincea's platform will be integrated with ForeScout CounterACT 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. "They fill a gap that has been left by traditional endpoint security providers and are incredibly effective. 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 by Invincea FreeSpace and respond to any machines not running FreeSpace so as to maintain a secure internal network."

"At Invincea, we believe in the power of a defense-in-depth strategy," said PJ Bihuniak, vice president of channels at Invincea. "We pride ourselves on working with other leading technology providers to deliver what our customers need -- solutions that work with one another to strengthen the overall security posture. Our ecosystem of technology alliances grows stronger today with our relationship with ForeScout."

"We are pleased to partner with leading threat prevention providers, such as Invincea, as their ability to detect and thwart attacks makes them a crucial part of our CounterACT ecosystem," said Gil Friedrich, vice president of technology at ForeScout. "This integration illustrates how ForeScout's customers and partners can leverage our ControlFabric technology to accelerate interoperability, bolster controls and automate policy-based mitigation."

Invincea's software is now deployed in more than 15,000 organizations worldwide -- protecting dozens of industry verticals such as financial services, retail, energy, oil & gas, high tech, healthcare, retail, transportation, defense industrial and federal and state government agencies and companies. In June 2013, Invincea became the first advanced malware threat protection technology to ship straight from the factory on all-Dell commercial devices under the brand name of Dell Data Protection | Protected Workspace. These machines include: Precision, Latitude and Optiplex machines. The OEM deal announced by Dell is now shipping Invincea on more than 60 million devices globally over the next three years.
