LightCyber upgrades to speed the shutdown of malicious activity

LightCyber is upgrading its endpoint detection and remediation platform so when it discovers bad behavior on the network it can also identify the machine and exact process that’s causing it, then shut the malware down.

LightCyber Magna 3.0 makes an important step in the evolution of endpoint security in that network behavior can by synched with endpoint telemetry to definitively say what’s behind the problem, says Lawrence Pingree, an analyst with Gartner. The big upside is that it saves time nailing down the cause and shutting down the exploit, which minimizes the damage, he says.

The company calls this new technology Network-to-Process Association (N2PA). Before, when the platform found bad behavior, security pros had to track down the cause of it manually, which isn’t 100% effective. “A human may not connect the dots,” Pingree says.
