HKT Joins Carbon Black Partner Program as an MSSP Partner

HONG KONG, May 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Carbon Black, the leader in next-generation endpoint security, today announced that HKT, Hong Kong's premier telecommunications service provider, has joined Carbon Black as a managed security services provider (MSSP) partner.

As an MSSP partner, HKT offers a comprehensive suite of managed security services. With the use of Carbon Black's leading security solutions, Cb Defense and Cb Response, HKT offers Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) services to help customers detect, prevent, predict, and respond to the most advanced cyberattacks.

Cb Defense is a cloud-based, next-generation antivirus (NGAV) and EDR solution for desktops, laptops, and servers that combines advanced protection with detection and response capabilities. HKT uses Cb Defense to protect organizations from the full spectrum of cyberattacks, including the increasingly prevalent non-malware attacks and ransomware. Cb Defense is powered by the Cb Predictive Security Cloud TM (PSC), which collects and analyzes unfiltered endpoint data to make predictions about, and protect against, future, and unknown attacks.

With the use of Cb Response, HKT's next-generation security operation center (SOC) team can identify malicious files that are used to execute an attack. The HKT SOC team can pinpoint which endpoints and servers are being attacked, diagnose the root cause and provide actionable recommendations. This enables responders to quickly and efficiently identify where and how the attack started. This enhanced visibility enables HKT to contain attacks rapidly and accelerate remediation efforts for its customers.

"HKT is the largest telecommunications service providers in Hong Kong and the collaboration with Carbon Black will enable more enterprises and consumers to access next-generation security technology designed to thwart the sophisticated cyberattacks prevalent today," said Matt Bennett, Carbon Black's vice president and managing director for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ). "With Carbon Black's market-leading cybersecurity solutions, HKT's customers will be protected from advanced threats better than ever before."
