CENTREVILLE, Va.–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–peer software today announced the formation of a strategic alliance with press security. Through the alliance, Peer Software will leverage Pulsar Security’s team of cybersecurity experts to continuously monitor and analyze emerging and evolving malware and ransomware attack patterns in unstructured data.
PeerGFS, an enterprise-class software solution that makes it easy to deploy a modern distributed file system across multiple sites, on-premises, and in cloud storage, will use these attack patterns to enable an additional layer of security detection and response cybernetics. These capabilities will enhance the Malicious Event Detection (MED) feature built into PeerGFS.
