Boston, MA (PRWEB) July 07, 2017
Cybereason, developers of the most effective Total Endpoint Protection Platform including EDR & Next-Gen AV, on Thursday welcomed Congressman Joe Kennedy III (D-MA) to its global headquarters at the John Hancock Tower in Boston’s Back Bay.
Congressman Kennedy III met with Cybereason’s senior management team to discuss the current landscape of global cyber threats and Cybereason’s role in combatting them. Congressman Kennedy III also met with Amit Serpa, Cybereason’s principal security researcher, the first person to discover a “vaccine” to combat last week’s global NotPetya ransomware attack that disrupted commerce and business in dozens of countries.
“At a time when the threat of global cybercrime and cyber terrorism grows by the day, it is exciting and encouraging to find a Massachusetts company like Cybereason on the frontlines of that fight. By speaking with their employees and leadership team, I gained a deeper understanding of the challenge we face and identified areas where the public and private sectors can partner to both protect consumers and support our Commonwealth’s expanding cybersecurity ecosystem,” said Congressman Kennedy.
“Cybereason was thrilled to welcome Congressman Kennedy to our global headquarters because he is a national leader on cybersecurity issues and STEM education. Cybereason is proud to be at the forefront of addressing today’s greatest cybersecurity threats, from protecting local non-profits and small business organizations through our SecureBoston initiative, to serving our multinational clients across the globe. We appreciated the opportunity to discuss these important issues with Congressman Kennedy,” said Lior Div, Founder and CEO of Cybereason.
