LEESBURG, Va and BOCA RATON, Fla., May 15, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADT Inc. (NYSE:ADT), the leading provider of monitored security and interactive home and business automation solutions in the United States and Canada, and Cofense ™, the leading provider of human-driven phishing defense solutions worldwide, today announced a partnership to offer phishing detection and response to ADT customers. ADT Cybersecurity provides enterprise and mid-market businesses with managed detection and response (MDR) services to combat advanced cyberthreats in real time. This service is now augmented by Cofense Triage, the first phishing-specific automated incident response platform.

“As our commercial customer needs expand beyond the physical into the cyber realm, this offering immediately enhances our current cybersecurity solution that ADT is providing to organizations,” said Jim DeVries, President, ADT. “Phishing emails are among the most dominant form of social engineering attacks today, and by adding Cofense Triage phishing defense to our managed service and detection, we can mitigate phishing threats quickly and effectively.”

“We are very excited to scale Cofense Triage for ADT customers,” said Rohyt Belani, CEO and Co-founder, Cofense. “Relying on perimeter technologies, alone, is a failing proposition to defend against email-borne attacks. The combination of Cofense’s Triage technology and ADT’s managed services skillset brings to market a unique solution focused on thwarting phishing attacks before they cause damage, by moving the detection of such attacks up the kill chain.”

Data breaches caused by cyberattacks on networks are plaguing businesses of all sizes. The median time of compromise to discovery is 80 days, with the average cost of data breach costing organizations $3.62 million*.

ADT Cybersecurity provides a unified platform for organizing, managing, and collecting cyber intelligence and automates security analyst workflows to close the gap between cyberattack and breach detection time and remediation for customers.
