WatchGuard Acquires Hexis HawkEye G to Deliver Holistic Network Security From the Network to the Endpoint
June 2016 by Coline Magne
WatchGuard® Technologies announced the acquisition of the HawkEye G threat detection and response technology from Hexis Cyber Solutions, Inc., a division of KEYW, a global leader in cybersecurity and geospatial intelligence solutions.
Organisations of all sizes face an increase in sophisticated zero-day attacks but lack comprehensive and actionable visibility across their network. This results in greater risk and slower response times for attack mitigation. Hexis’ HawkEye G platform provides visibility to these threats, and the tools and automation required to easily and quickly remediate incidents.
In addition to the value this will provide for WatchGuard’s more than 75,000 end-users around the globe, integration of the HawkEye G detection and response features into WatchGuard’s broader managed security service provider (MSSP) enablement platform will enable service providers to provide more value than ever before, making WatchGuard the premier choice for any MSSP serving the small to medium organisations or distributed enterprises segments.
WatchGuard will immediately work to integrate the HawkEye G technology into its award-winning network security and visibility platform. The company will make the exciting new technology available to end-users via its global network of MSSPs and channel resellers.
