Kaspersky acquires Brain4Net to boost its XDR platform with orchestrated SASE

Kaspersky has acquired Brain4Net, allowing the company  to evolve its existing solutions into full-scale Extended Detection and Response (XDR).

The new XDR offering based on a cloud-native EDR solution will provide visibility and advanced functionality for Al-based detection and auto response logic across all endpoints and the network. In particular, Kaspersky XDR will bring a wide range of automated incident response scenarios (from blocking a file execution on an endpoint to blocking certain network segments or internal infrastructure for certain users or types of users) along with network segmentation tools.

Kaspersky XDR will be based on unified server architecture and will provide centralised management from a single web console. Customers will be able to control and reliably protect all popular entry points for potential threats: network, web traffic, email, workstations, servers, and virtual machines. Working together, the XDR platform with SASE will allow enterprises to implement a zero-trust strategy. In addition to built-in advanced technology detection and analysis, the platform will benefit from world-leading threat intelligence (TI) which is constantly updated and validated by leading Kaspersky experts.

One ecosystem for corporate security
All these components will become an integral part of the single ecosystem which is Kaspersky’s vision for the future of corporate cybersecurity. The central element of this ecosystem is Kaspersky Open Single Management Platform. It will become a single cloud-native technological platform to build Kaspersky XDR and will use deployment model agnostic architecture. This way, the platform could be used across the public cloud, private cloud or even on-premises.

“We are excited to join forces with Brain4Net’s talented team who have already built mature world-class technologies and services for network orchestration and control. I’m confident that their knowledge and experience, combined with Kaspersky’s most awarded security technologies and recognised threat expertise will blend perfectly with our vision for corporate security, while new offerings will help security officers speed up threat detection, investigation and remediation, reducing mean time to response,” says Andrey Efremov, Chief Business Development Officer at Kaspersky.

Max Kaminskiy, CEO and co-founder at Brain4Net, adds: “We are delighted to join the Kaspersky team. The spread of SD-WAN technology needs a strong business scenario, that is why we are partnering with Kaspersky XDR. Brain4Net’s choice of technologies confirms the high level of the company’s products and competencies. Together we will continue to make the world a safer and more comfortable place.”
