Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 27, 2017
Cybereason, developers of the most effective Total Endpoint Protection Platform including EDR & NGAV, today announced that the company’s CEO and co-founder Lior Div has been named a finalist for EY’s 2017 New England Entrepreneur of the Year. The awards gala is taking place tonight at the Boston Marriott Copley Place. This is the second consecutive year Div has been named a finalist.
Cybereason is the fastest growing technology company in New England having increased its footprint in Boston by more than 200 percent in the past twelve months. Cybereason currently employs more than 100 people in its Boston office and 300 worldwide.
Founded in 2012 by Div and co-founders Yossi Naar and Yonatan Striem-Amit, Cybereason recently announced an infusion of new capital of $100 million from SoftBank. This new financing solidifies Cybereason as the leading cybersecurity startup changing the status quo in the security industry, with 500 percent growth in revenue in the past year.
The EY awards program, which is celebrating its 31st year, recognizes entrepreneurs who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
“Being named a finalist for EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year for the second consecutive year is very humbling because of the hundreds of talented executives from New England that were also nominated. Cybereason is experiencing record growth but we are never satisfied because hackers still have a big advantage over the vast majority of corporations. Cybereason’s mission is to turn the tables on the adversary, making them the targets and putting a bullseye on their backs and giving our customers the advantage,” said Div.
