As a Platinum Sponsor of Carbon Black’s premier customer and partner event, ReliaQuest used CB Connect 19 as a chance to demonstrate how the company works alongside enterprise security teams to optimize their investments in Carbon Black.
ReliaQuest’s collaborative approach to helping some of the most trusted global brands leverage this powerful EDR technology is a reflection of its strong partnership with Carbon Black.
Here are 3 highlights from ReliaQuest’s week at CB Connect 19:
1. Showcasing a partnership to optimize EDR: At the ReliaQuest booth, the Solution Architect and Product Management teams demonstrated how ReliaQuest’s solution works to enhance Carbon Black’s cloud platform. Customers and prospects observed how with ReliaQuest, Carbon Black customers can increase the effectiveness of their EDR technology, improve their management of the threat detection lifecycle, and ensure comprehensive analysis of all of their alerts. EDR technology has become an essential component of enterprise security operations for greater visibility and control, and ReliaQuest maximizes Carbon Black’s ability to work within an organization’s overall security model.
2.Putting Security Skills to the Test: On Tuesday, nearly two dozen cybersecurity pros from around the country competed in the CB Threat Hunter: Forensic Challenge presented by ReliaQuest. Showing off their Carbon Black and security hunting skills, competitors needed to capture 15 flags and two bonus flags, covering various categories along the way such as Lateral Movement, Persistence, and Credential Theft. Competitors had to provide information like the process ID that the attacker used to laterally move from one host to another, or to find the flag that allowed an attacker to survive a reboot.
The Challenge’s top three finishers were awarded a drone, iPad and GoPro!
3.Optimizing Security Operations: Wednesday afternoon, ReliaQuest CISO Col. John Burger, former CISO and Chief of Cyber Warfare at the U.S. Central Command, was featured in the CB Connect’s “CISO Spotlight.” Col. Burger’s presentation “Optimizing Security Operations” highlighted how security teams must continue to stay a step ahead as the pace of threat innovation accelerates. He covered topics such as false positive management, unseen attack scenarios, setting targets relative to risk, and explained how less than 1% of enterprise security teams have enough visibility to gain valuable insights from low-impact incidents.
