Fidelis Cybersecurity Expands Advanced Threat Defense to the Endpoint with Acquisition of Resolution1 Security

Press Release

Fidelis Cybersecurity meets challenges of rapidly evolving threat landscape through acquisition of Resolution1

Bethesda MD, May 12, 2015 -- Responding to customer demand for a comprehensive approach to advanced threat defense that encompasses the network and endpoints, Fidelis Cybersecurity today announced it has acquired Resolution1 Security. The Resolution1 platform delivers real-time insight and analysis, and automated response and remediation of security incidents, enabling security analysts and operations teams to more rapidly and effectively find and eliminate threats at the endpoint device. Fidelis Cybersecurity is a privately held company backed by Marlin Equity Partners, a global investment firm with over $3 billion of capital under management.

Resolution1 will be integrated with Fidelis XPS™, Fidelis Cybersecurity’s flagship network security solution. Fidelis XPS, which earned a top rating of “Recommended” in an independent test of breach detection systems conducted by NSS Labs, provides real-time detection and prevention across all phases of the threat lifecycle. Together, both solutions will support the work done by Fidelis Cybersecurity’s leading network defense and forensics team and threat research team, and arm Fidelis Cybersecurity’s customers with a comprehensive solution to effectively defend against today’s adversaries and attacks. Additionally, both Resolution1 and Fidelis XPS will continue to integrate with their other network and endpoint solutions.

“This represents a significant step in our strategy to deliver the greatest value to our customers by providing a comprehensive advanced threat defense solution which offers protection, detection and response across the network and the endpoints, protecting their most valuable data,” said Peter George, CEO of Fidelis Cybersecurity. “With this acquisition, our customers will benefit from the combined value of our proven network and endpoint solutions, enabling them to better protect their organizations from today’s advanced adversaries.”

In its Competitive Landscape: Endpoint Detection and Response Tools, 2014 Gartner Research observed, “Bringing together system events, network activities and indicators of compromise mapped across a graphical kill-chain timeline and comprehensive analytics capabilities are essential to operationalize and simplify EDR (endpoint detection and response) for security operations personnel.”*

Kurt Bertone, Chief Security Strategist of Fidelis Cybersecurity, added “We believe Resolution1’s continuous, automated incident response for endpoints and Fidelis XPS’ real-time detection and prevention of network threats will deliver an incredibly powerful combination of advanced protection, analytics, and data theft protection, which will help our customers protect and defend themselves in this era of continuous compromise.”
