Built in Boston has created a list of 50 top startups to watch in Boston in 2017. Cybereason is the only cybersecurity company named to the list.

Cybereason, developers of the world’s only military-grade, real-time detection and response platform, was named to Built in Boston’s ‘50 Boston Startups to Watch in 2017’ list. Cybereason is the only cybersecurity company included on the watch list.

Cybereason is the fastest growing cybersecurity company in Boston and is quickly becoming the choice for enterprises looking to combat sophisticated threats. In 2016, Cybereason more than doubled its workforce to 240 employees, experienced revenue growth of more than 300 percent and moved its global headquarters into the iconic 62-story, 790-foot skyscraper at 200 Clarendon Street, still referred to by most people as The John Hancock Building, a hallmark of Boston’s vibrant economy.

More than 100 of Cybereason’s employees are based in Boston. The Boston office includes more than 15,000 square feet of space and provides Cybereason with the room needed to support new hires and affirm its commitment to Boston as its international profile skyrockets. In June 2016, the company was named One of the Best Places to Work by Boston Business Journal readers.

“We are delighted to be recognized as the only cybersecurity company on Built in Boston’s Watch List in 2017. Boston is our home and I could not think of a better city for my company and family to be. We’re located in the heart of Boston and we aspire to attract the best talent that Boston has to offer. Our goal as a company is to rid the world of cybercrime and to become a Boston institution,” said Lior Div, co-founder and CEO of Cybereason.
