News Release: Lunarline and Damballa Partner to Help the Government Fight Back Against Advanced Cyber Attacks

April 2nd, 2015 – Arlington, VA – Lunarline and Damballa today announced a strategic partnership to bring Damballa’s advanced threat detection technology to Lunarline’s Government clients in the Intelligence, DoD and Federal Civilian communities. Globally deployed in some of the largest and most complex private and public networks, Damballa Failsafe is ideally suited to the Federal Government’s unique security challenges.

“From the very first demo I’ve been impressed with Damballa’s Failsafe threat detection system,” said Lunarline COO Keith Mortier. “Within hours of installing Failsafe, our Security Operations team can zero in on advanced threats targeting Federal networks.”

Failsafe monitors network traffic using a combination of behavioral, payload and threat intelligence detection engines. The system’s Case Analyzer correlates hundreds of pieces of evidence per device to automatically find hidden infections that preventative products have missed. Failsafe’s ability to dramatically shorten infection dwell time lets security teams focus on stopping data theft instead of chasing unsubstantiated alerts.

“Using Failsafe, we can tackle, with unprecedented efficiency, the advanced cyber-attacks currently plaguing Federal networks, while equipping our clients with actionable cyber intelligence.” Mr. Mortier says. “Through this strategic partnership our Federal clients can quickly deploy this innovative tool – backed by Lunarline’s advanced incident response and forensics capabilities – to realize an immediate improvement in security and compliance posture.”

“Securing federals network from cyber-attacks is a national priority,” said Paul Rolfe, Damballa’s VP of Global Field Alliances and Channels. “Lunarline and Damballa ease the stress by combining the best in detection and response.” Rolfe continued, “Failsafe is an easy-to-deploy, low-touch solution that can be operational in hours or less. Lunarline’s Security Operations teams have the system’s output of actionable intelligence at their fingertips so they can surgically respond to incidents before damage is done.”

About Spence Witten

Spence has somehow survived ten years at start-ups and small businesses without suffering a (major) nervous breakdown. As Lunarline's Director of Federal Sales, Spence actually loves working on proposals. If there were any doubt, this is proof that he is in fact certifiably insane. While his title says "Sales" Lunarline doesn't let him off that easy. We make him do real work, too. Luckily he's a recognized subject matter expert in security policy and loves helping clients navigate their way around tricky security compliance standards. He's also been known to lead a software development initiative or two, though that pretty much always ends poorly for everyone involved. He can be reached at spence.witten@lunarline.com.
