Lastline Partners Deliver Enterprise Protection to the Vulnerable Midmarket
WatchGuard and SonicWall Among Partners Proving APT Need in Market Segment.
REDWOOD CITY, CA — February 9, 2017 — Lastline Inc., the leader in advanced malware protection, announced today that it is seeing large spikes in malware detected through new segments of it global online network, spurred by several of its embedded OEM partners driving business into the SMB and midmarket segments.
“We now see sophisticated malware methods previously reserved for attacks on large organizations moving down from the large enterprise to include midmarket and in some cases, the SMB market,” said Brian Laing, Vice President of Business Development & Products. “For instance, we are seeing large spikes in detection and elimination of the malware ‘Locky’ targeting Windows 10 guests across our OEM partner networks. This is not something we expected to see, but rarely are attacks expected. Our observation reinforces the need for enterprise-grade evasive malware protection from core to edge, even in the small end of the business market.”
Working with its partners, Lastline is the first company to secure Windows 10 and other must-have enterprise software for SMB and midmarket companies in a pure-play APT solution. Lastline’s award-winning advanced malware detection solution is embedded into security products customers already know and trust.
