Cloud Distribution, Lastline Form Partnership to Provide Cloud-based Protection from Malware Attacks

By Christopher Mohr

Cloud Distribution revealed recently that it will partner with Lastline Inc. in order to provide cloud-based network and security solutions to value added resellers in the U.K. and Ireland.

Lastline Inc. is located in Santa Barbara, Calif. and was founded by academic researchers dedicated to learning more about malware and how to protect users against it. The company’s main focus is on automated processes running in the cloud and thwarting zero-day, advanced, persistent and targeted attacks. Each of the researchers has a strong academic background with over 100 published scientific papers to their name.

Cloud Distribtion forms partnerships with technology firms to distribute its solutions in the U.K. market. The Reading, U.K.-based firm has current alliances with Meraki, Peplink, SplashChimp, Talon, Tanaza, Vitar and Viatta. It seeks to be different by offering more innovative solutions than a typical firm would.

Both companies are developing the Lastline next- generation cloud-based malware protection pipeline. This solution is designed for quick distribution to Cloud Distribution's reseller network.

According to Cloud Distribution, even advanced technologies like next-generation firewalls and IPS are no match for today's sophisticated attacks that have the ability to evade traditional detection methods. Lastline's ability to leverage cloud technology to quickly analyze and respond to attacks and its robust evasion techniques in real-time make it the best security solution now on the market.

Lastline and Cloud Distribution's solution could prove to be a huge advance in malware protection technology. Fighting malware has largely been seen as a process of responding to known attack techniques. Thus, it really only protects you from the known attacks.

Software that can analyze, detect and fight malware in real-time is a must for all companies needing to protect valuable, sensitive data. With the increase of zero-day attacks, anti-malware software that can protect firms 'on-the-fly' is superior to the more reactive design of traditional anti-virus and anti-malware solutions. It may become the anti-malware equivalent of the proverbial better mousetrap that resellers want to provide for their customers.
