KEYW Corp.: Leading U.S. Energy Company Selects HawkEye G for Next Generation Threat Detection and Response

Customer to be One of the Company's Largest Deployments and Validates
Comprehensive Approach to Securing Endpoints and Network

HANOVER, Md., Oct. 01, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hexis Cyber Solutions Inc.
(Hexis), a wholly-owned subsidiary of The KEYW Holding Corporation
(NASDAQ:KEYW), and a provider of advanced cybersecurity solutions for
commercial companies and government agencies, today announced that one of the
nation's leading energy providers has selectedHawkEye G for next generation
threat detection and response. HawkEye G will be deployed across tens of
thousands of endpoints in the customer's environment. This represents the
first seven-figure deal for the recently released HawkEye G 3.0.

While companies across all verticals are susceptible to cyber-attacks, concern
among energy companies is elevated considering the widespread implications a
breach could have on critical infrastructure. Security teams increasingly
understand that many traditional, signature-based security solutions are
ineffective at stopping today's stealthy attacks and many organizations
continue to struggle with alert overload. Additionally, relying solely on
manual response is no longer adequate and challenging to scale given the
velocity of attacks combined with the security skills shortage.

"We know organizations are looking for increased enterprise visibility into
advanced threats and incident response, and security teams are looking for
better, faster ways to remove threats and reduce alert fatigue, not more
manual tools," said Chris Fedde, president, Hexis Cyber Solutions. "Companies
need an integrated cyber defense solution that will protect endpoints and the
network by delivering evidence-based detection, threat verification and
automated response capabilities. The selection of HawkEye G by one of the
largest energy companies in the U.S. is the latest validation of our HawkEye
G 3.0 solution and our approach of integrated detection&automated response."

The latest version for HawkEye G, released in April, includes improved
behavior-based endpoint detection, proprietary technology called ThreatSyncTM
for threat verification, and integration with leading third-party security
technologies such as Palo Alto Networks and FireEye for detection and Splunk
for increased threat intelligence. Increased confidence in detecting,
verifying, and responding to threat alerts using HawkEye G empowers security
teams to quickly and confidently defend themselves at machine speeds before
damage is done.
