General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions' industry-leading implementation of technology enables organizations to quickly prevent and detect advanced threats across the entire threat lifecycle.
WALTHAM, Mass., June 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions has expanded the capabilities of its flagship network security solution, Fidelis XPS™, by building on its unique application of YARA technology. Fidelis XPS' implementation of YARA technology now extends beyond the infiltration phase and into the command and control (C2) communication and lateral propagation phases, delivering a continuous response posture across the entire threat lifecycle.
General Dynamics Fidelis' use of the malware discovery and classification tool, traditionally used with static data, is an industry-first application of the technology for data-in-motion. Enabling both the real-time detection and prevention of malicious cyber activity, Fidelis XPS enables customers to quickly leverage existing, community-driven YARA intelligence to strengthen their security posture, while freeing time and resources for other cybersecurity initiatives.
According to Tom Lyons, vice president of product management for General Dynamics Fidelis Cybersecurity Solutions, "With today's advanced, intelligent and persistent adversaries, it's vital that an organization's defense is one step ahead. However, security analysts do not have the time or resources to do it all on their own, so they must look to the collective intelligence of the security community to strengthen their defenses. We are taking the benefits of YARA one step further by eliminating the time needed to translate rules, instead enabling them to be plugged directly into Fidelis XPS. Through our copy, paste, protect feature we are expanding the reach and effectiveness of the analyst team to immediately go on the offensive against today's threat actors."
