Core Security Combines Identity, Vulnerability, and Now Network Detection and Response as The Industry’s First Complete Actionable Insight Platform

ATLANTA, July 22, 2016 - Core Security®, a leader in Vulnerability and Access Risk Management, today announced the acquisition of Damballa, experts in network detection and response. The acquisition will complement Core Security’s suite of software solutions that manage security risk across the enterprise and protect against any attack vector on any type of device or operating system. Moreover, it will make them the only provider to offer a complete and comprehensive Actionable Insight Platform to completely deter, detect, remediate security risk and offer continuous validation of security controls.

Core Security is now the only company to bring to the market solutions that:

  • Deter security risks through multi-factor authentication, identity and vulnerability analytics
  • Detect and respond to compromises on the network from infected devices
  • Remediate security risk through governing controls such as access provisioning and de-provisioning
  • Validate security controls through compliance certification and pen testing

“I have firsthand experience with this company and I am extremely excited about the technology and intellectual property that this adds to our Actionable Insight platform," said David Earhart, CEO of Core Security. "Damballa’s technology combined with Core Security’s will bring identity analytics, vulnerability prioritization, and infected device detection together for the first time.”

Damballa leverages big data from nearly 15 percent of the world’s internet traffic and combines this with machine learning to automatically discover compromised assets, minimize business risk, and reduce the time to response and remediation. It protects nearly a half billion endpoints globally with sensors on five continents, at enterprises in every major market and for the world's largest ISP and telecommunications providers.
