“Today’s adversary is ruthlessly targeting organizations with lean security teams. There’s never been a more important time for the security community to come together and help customers prevent their next breach."
BE’ER SHEVA, Israel and BOSTON (PRWEB) March 10, 2021
Morphisec, a leader in cloud-delivered endpoint and server security solutions, today announced it has joined the Cyber Threat Alliance (CTA) as an affiliate member, bringing CTA’s membership to 32 companies from across the cybersecurity industry. The gravity of the pandemic has done little to dissuade cybercriminals from targeting businesses with more sophisticated cyberattacks. In fact, hackers have been emboldened to go after increasingly vulnerable organizations. No one vendor can take on thwarting these attacks alone, and CTA has created an alliance to join together and fight these adversaries, which get more dangerous by the day.
“Today’s adversary is ruthlessly targeting organizations with lean security teams,” said Andrew Homer, VP of Marketing and Business Development at Morphisec. “There’s never been a more important time for the security community to come together and help customers prevent their next breach. We’re honored to have been accepted into the CTA, and look forward to sharing our threat intelligence with the member community.”
In its first few weeks since joining CTA, Morphisec has already begun sharing cyberattack campaign discoveries in advance with the CTA community that spotlighted Egregor ransomware’s latest techniques, as well as the Osiris Banking Trojan moving its target to the manufacturing industry. Going forward, Morphisec will continue to contribute significantly to CTA’s shared understanding of the current cyber threat environment.
“I am very pleased to have Morphisec join CTA as our 32nd member,” said Michael Daniel, President and Chief Executive Officer of CTA. “Morphisec will provide very useful threat intelligence to the other members and in turn will be able to improve their product offerings through the intelligence they receive. We are always excited to bring on companies poised to grow and mature like Morphisec.”
Morphisec delivers an entirely new level of innovation to endpoint protection to create a zero-trust execution environment for workstation, VDI and cloud workloads. This proactively creates a prevent-first posture against the most advanced threats to the enterprise, including APTs, file-based malware, zero-days, ransomware, fileless attacks, and web-borne exploits. This complete endpoint security solution easily deploys into a company’s existing security infrastructure to form a simple, highly effective, cost-efficient technology stack that is truly disruptive to today’s existing cybersecurity model.
