"To effectively deal with Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), companies need to adopt an ‘assume the breach’ mindset, and proactively manage risks,” says Adam Bennett, CEO and Founder of Red Piranha.

“When handling incident response (IR), organisations should use a combination of NDR and EDR, plus cloud data to improve detection efficacy. Additionally, companies must have skilled teams and playbooks in place to act quickly when needed. Partnering Red Piranha and ESET offers companies the benefit of technical coverage provided by both technology stacks, along with Red Piranha’s Defence-ready Security Operations Centre (SOC), and incident response and forensic specialists.”

Eric Rollett, Head of Channel Sales for ESET Australia, said,

“We are thrilled about our partnership with Red Piranha and the expanded cybersecurity capabilities. ESET employs a multitude of proprietary, layered technologies working together that goes way beyond the capabilities of basic antivirus. Red Piranha, as a local Australian company, brings a wealth of experience that complements our endpoint detection and response solution.”

The comprehensive approach gives companies the best chance of protecting themselves from an ever-evolving threat landscape. 

Eric added, “As cyber threats continue to evolve and grow in complexity, organisations need to have comprehensive protection across their entire stack, and the ESET/Red Piranha partnership offers a total coverage solution that ensures a company’s security posture is strong across all aspects of their infrastructure. By leveraging the power of both companies’ technologies, customers can be confident that they are receiving top-tier protection that is fully managed and supported around the clock.”
