Overview

CB Response is an industry-leading incident response and threat hunting solution designed
for security operations center (SOC) teams. CB Response continuously records and stores
unfiltered endpoint data, so that security professionals can hunt threats in real time and
visualize the complete attack kill chain. It leverages the CB Predictive Security Cloud’s
aggregated threat intelligence, which is applied to the endpoint activity system of record for
evidence and detection of these identified threats and patterns of behavior.

No defense can stop every attack. When something does get through, Proofpoint Threat Response takes the manual labor and guesswork out of incident response to help you resolve threats faster and more efficiently. Get an actionable view of threats, enrich alerts, and automate forensic collection and comparison. For verified threats, quarantine and contain users, hosts, and malicious email attachments - automatically or at the push of a button.
