Genians Joins IBM Security Ecosystem To Perform Real-time Quarantine Of Cyber Threats At The Access Layer

North Andover, Mass. – September 11th, 2020 – Genians, a leader in Next-Gen Network Access Control (NAC) technology, empowered by Device Platform Intelligence (DPI), today announced it has joined the IBM Security App Exchange program.

Genians has been working with industry leaders in the cybersecurity marketplace by sharing its proven technology and intelligence regarding endpoints, networks, and the active threat landscape. With Genians NAC capable of locating and controlling any non-compliant or compromised devices at the network edge, it serves as the key component necessary for establishing an effective cyber-defense framework. Further, it enhances the capabilities of existing Security, Orchestration, Automation, and Response (SOAR) monitoring and threat detection systems.

Within the SOAR space, IBM delivers its Resilient SOAR platform to respond effectively to cyber threats by offering over 160 integration applications to eliminate technology silos and enhance its SOAR capabilities. Genians Next-Gen NAC can enhance IBM Resilient SOAR to gain comprehensive network visibility and access control at the access layer.

Genians Solution Architect, Brett Hamill, notes: “Identifying threats and automating actions to external systems through applications is a core function of IBM Resilient. However, the external system performing the action is where the true quarantine capability comes into play. The architecture of that system will determine how effective the quarantine is, as well as how difficult it is to implement”.

Genians NAC and IBM Resilient SOAR mitigate risk at the access layer by:

  • Increasing network visibility and surveillance empowered by Genians Device Platform Intelligence without disturbing existing network infrastructure
  • Visualizing and understanding relationships across incidents
  • Automating quarantine actions against compromised or vulnerable devices by Genians multi-layered dynamic access control
  • Responding with agility and intelligence using dynamic playbooks and simplifying complex processes with visual workflows
  • Improving incident management by reducing alert and notification fatigue.

The collaboration between Genians and IBM can help SecOps Teams fortify their cybersecurity foundation and overall effectiveness while maximizing their SOAR investment.
