Hawk Defense Partners with FireHost to Provide Advanced Threat Detection Services

(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – HAWK Network Defense, the software manufacturer of eyeCon, a revolutionary new Big Data Security Analytics Platform, today announced a partnership with secure cloud leader FireHost providing a superior level of security to their cloud customers.

“As cyber security concerns continue to rise, companies and cloud providers need the ability to ingest billions of raw security events to locate true indicators of compromise which is critical to any security operations center (SOC). HAWK’S eyeCon uses a combination of active threat intelligence and advanced algorithms to continuously analyze machine data allowing for near real time detection of complex threats. HAWK provides FireHost the ability to identify malicious activity and to detect previously undetectable malicious activity allowing FireHost to provide a superior level of security for their cloud customers. The partnership with FireHost allows HAWK to reach customers who have chosen the FireHost Secure Cloud as their provider,” said Mr. David Harris, CEO of Hawk Defense.

“I have spent the better part of 2 years evaluating and systematically analyzing the vendor space in cyber analytics and I can state that the capabilities evidenced by the HAWK Defense system are far reaching and there are few tools or technologies that are in HAWK’s league, and fewer still that can compare to its innovation and functional prowess,” said Dr. Chase Cunningham, Threat Intel Lead at Firehost.
