Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 20, 2016
Cybereason today announced that its military-grade, real-time detection and response platform, was given a top ranking by Gartner in a recent comparative review of endpoint detection and response vendors.
Cybereason’s threat hunting platform achieved the highest possible ranking of ‘Strong’ in all five use cases, including: incident data search and investigation; suspicious activity detection; alert triage or suspicious activity validation; threat hunting or data exploration and stopping malicious activity. Gartner’s research used a Harvey Balls table to summarize how each product supported the aforementioned use cases. Vendors were given scores of ‘Weak,’ ‘Average’ or ‘Strong’ in five use cases.
“Endpoint detection and response tools enable an organization to achieve comprehensive endpoint visibility, improve its ability to detect malicious activities and simplify security incident response,” said Anton Chuvakin, research vice president, Gartner, in his recent Blog post.
“Cybereason is the first and only company to develop a military-grade, automated prevention, detection and response platform that enables companies to become proactive hunters that disrupt the adversary in real time. Our award-winning platform turns the tables on hackers, making them the targets, instead of the banks, retailers, hospitals and global enterprises that are far too frequently making headlines due to a breach,” said Lior Div, co-founder and CEO, Cybereason.
Cybereason recently enhanced its military-grade, real-time detection and response platform, including the launch of the industry’s most advanced ransomware detection and blocking capabilities, Attack Blocker, a new capability that shuts down threats on the endpoint in real time by blocking process execution and preventing network communication and its Active Monitoring Service.
Cybereason has a proven track record of protecting Fortune 500 enterprises globally. The company has received many awards and accolades since it launched its detection and response platform in 2014. Most recently, SC Magazine named Cybereason ‘Rookie Security Company of the Year.’ Also, CEO Lior Div was a 2016 EY Entrepreneur of the Year New England Finalist. In addition, Infosecurity Products Guide named Div ‘2016 CEO of the Year’ while Computer Reseller News named Cybereason’s Detection and Response Platform one of 30 cool products launched at the 2016 RSA Conference. And Dark Reading named the company one of the ‘20 Cyber Security Startups to Watch in 2016.’
Founded by members of the Israeli intelligence agency’s elite cyber security Unit 8200, the Cybereason platform mirrors the founders’ expertise in managing some of world’s most complex hacking operations. The Cybereason Detection and Response Platform leverages big data, behavioral analytics and machine learning to uncover, in real-time, complex cyber attacks designed to evade traditional defenses. It automates the investigation process, connects isolated malicious events and visually presents a full malicious operation. The platform is available as an on-premise solution or a cloud-based service. Cybereason is privately held and headquartered in Boston with offices in Tel Aviv and Tokyo.
