The threat of cyber attack has prompted Premier Foods to contract international cybersecurity firm Cybereason to shore up its online defences.

Cybereason has worked closely with hardware and software supplier CDW on the project.

“Cybereason clearly differentiated itself during a competitive evaluation process and with its innovative approach and ability to correlate incidents, help us combat sophisticated threat actors,”​ said Gareth Byrne-Perkins, head of technology & services at Premier Foods.

“Persistent adversaries will continue to find their way into networks through an increasingly expanding attack service and Cybereason will help us to identify potential threats immediately.”

‘Newest joint customer’

Sam Schofield, regional vice president, UK, Ireland, Cybereason, said: “Cybereason is thrilled to have worked closely with CDW on our newest joint customer, Premier Foods, the maker of many iconic food brands in Great Britain.

“Premier Foods is one of the growing number of manufacturers, not only in Great Britain but throughout the world, that concluded Cybereason's advanced, award-winning threat hunting solutions will give them visibility into potential network trouble spots and the ability to quickly investigate.”

‘Reduce risk’

Richard Enderby, practice Lead, cybersecurity at CDW UK, commented: “CDW partners with Cybereason to provide our customers with the latest tools and services required to provide visibility and analysis of modern sophisticated threats, to help them reduce the risk of a security breach.

“With Cybereason’s AI ​[artificial intelligence] Hunting Platform, customers have access to a full-stack offering of EDR ​[endpoint detection and response], next-gen AV ​[anti-virus], anti-ransomware, file-less malware protection and security services, and we’re excited to work with Cybereason to deliver their endpoint security solutions.”

Cybereason is based in Boston in the US, with offices in London, Tel Aviv and Tokyo.
