The 11th Annual MIT Sloan CIO Symposium has announced Cybereason Inc. as one of ten finalists for the 2014 Innovation Showcase as its security platform represents a cutting edge solution that provides both strong value and innovation to enterprise IT.

Malop Protection: A New Approach to Cybersecurity

Cybereason’s patent-pending technology uses incremental adaptive forensic investigation techniques and statistical analysis to map hacking patterns to side effects observed on systems to distinguish between normal and suspicious activities. The raw data is fused together from various sources including end points, servers, network, cyber intelligence reports, malware databases and heuristics scanners.

“We are thrilled to have received such a high number of qualified Innovation Showcase submissions,” said David L. Verrill, executive director of the MIT Center for Digital Business, and co-chair of the Innovation Showcase. “Each of the 10 finalists we have chosen represents innovative technologies that have the potential to positively impact growth and help CIOs move their digital enterprises forward successfully.”
