Lastline of defence deployed as Cloud Distribution inks anti-malware deal

“Channel partners have been looking for a cost effective solution like Lastline that leverages the power of the Cloud."

Cloud Distribution, a value-added cloud distributor (VACD), has announced a new partnership with Lastline across Australia and New Zealand, a company operating within the advanced malware protection market.

With global cyber espionage estimated to cost companies $375 billion annually ($575 billion when factoring in downtime), Cloud Distribution believes this agreement offers the channel a “high margin next generation solution” specifically designed to combat today’s new class of sophisticated, stealthy and targeted cyber threats.

Lastline’s approach to breach detection is the culmination of more than ten years of Research and Development specifically focused on advanced and evasive breach weaponry and tactics.

The result is a software-based platform designed to integrate breach detection capabilities seamlessly into your existing security portfolio.

“Lastline offers the most advanced threat intelligence technology available today and the channel has been limited to inferior technologies until now,” says Jason Burn, co-founder and Director of Sales, Cloud Distribution.

“Channel partners have been looking for a cost effective solution like Lastline that leverages the power of the Cloud.

“We are also delighted to be able to offer the channel a solution that effectively addresses the challenges of today’s threat landscape particularly Advanced Persistent Threats, Zero-Day and Targeted Attacks.”

According to Burn, an organisation’s most advanced security defences – next generation firewalls, next generation IPS, and heuristic based security solutions – are still “no match” for the polymorphic attacks being deployed today such as Advanced Persistent Threats, Zero-Day Exploits and Targeted Attacks.

These new threats offer a broad spectrum of attack possibilities that enable attackers to break into systems, avoid detection and maintain long-term access to compromised networks using a combination of malicious evasion techniques that make detection and analysis extremely difficult.

“Lastline is the only technology on the market that has the ability to see through traditional evasion techniques and prevent false negatives in a unique way, by leveraging the Cloud to automate the systems and processes used to analyse incoming threats,” Burn adds.

“Its Advanced Next Generation solutions can analyse binaries, web content and emails in real time as it enters the enterprise network, thereby allowing IT managers to map the malware threats quickly and efficiently with a level of accuracy not previously available.

“Up until now these threats have simply bypassed traditional signature based controls. At the same time Lastline’s solutions offer extremely competitive total cost of ownership as it leverages the Cloud infrastructure, which reduces CAPEX costs.”
