Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) August 24, 2016
Cybereason today announced that the company and its Military-Grade, Real-Time Detection and Response Platform, has been named by Juniper Research as one of the Top Three ‘Disruptive Innovators to Watch in 2016.’ Cybereason is the only cybersecurity company to make the watch list.
Cybereason’s military-grade, real-time detection and response platform automatically detects attacker activities to better understand their actions and impact. The Cybereason team has spent decades in cyber offensive operations, providing them with a comprehensive understanding of hackers methodologies and mindset. Today, Cybereason’s platform and services are used by the security operation centers and incident response teams of the world’s most targeted organizations and blue-chip companies.
“We feel that Cybereason stood out with its transformational approach to cyber security, using Big Data, behavioural analytics and machine learning to automatically hunt down complex cyber attacks in real time, including information on what the hacker extracted at any moment. In other words, it reveals the attacker’s story rather than merely flagging the existence of a virus,” said Windsor Holden, Juniper Research’s Head of Forecasting & Consultancy. “Disruptive innovation describes what happens when small companies attack incumbents whose output has become expensive and over-complicated. In doing so, they open up markets previously accessible only to consumers with a lot of money or know-how.”
“Cybereason is the first and only company to develop a military-grade, automated prevention, detection and response platform that enables companies to proactively detect the attack and disrupt the adversary in real time,” said Yonatan Striem-Amit, co-founder and CTO, Cybereason. “Today’s sophisticated attacks are leaving too many organizations playing defense when the most prudent strategy is to respond with a multi-faceted approach using an offensive mindset, leaving the adversaries exposed and hunted.”
Cybereason has a proven track record of protecting Fortune 1,000 enterprises globally. The company has received many awards and accolades since its founding. Most recently, Cybereason topped a Gartner list of endpoint detection and response vendors. 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.’ Computer Reseller News recognized Cybereason for having one of the 16 ‘hottest’ products launched at Black Hat 2016 and one of 30 cool products at the 2016 RSA Conference. Also, 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.
