BE’ER SHEVA, Israel and BOSTON (PRWEB) June 18, 2020
Morphisec, the worldwide leader in Advanced Threat Prevention, has been named a 2020 Technology Pioneer by the World Economic Forum. Dedicated to protecting global enterprises from the most dangerous and sophisticated cyber attacks, Morphisec has been recognized for its transformative endpoint security solution. Today, enterprises are utilizing Morphisec's patented Moving Target Defense technology across more than five million endpoints to thwart zero-day attacks, exploits, fileless malware, and other evasive threats.
The World Economic Forum Technology Pioneers of 2020 are 100 early to growth-stage startups from around the globe that are pioneering new technologies and innovations set to make an impact on global markets and society. This year's honorees hail from a range of industries, including AI, biotech, robotics, climate change, security, and consumer technology. Morphisec was selected within the security industry from an impressive pool of international candidates.
The company’s Moving Target Defense technology perpetually hides key memory resources from attackers without the need to recognize threats. The novel solution is in increasing demand by cybersecurity professionals tasked with securing remote workforces in response to COVID-19. As remote employees seamlessly alternate between work and household tasks on their personal devices, deterministic and preventive solutions like those from Morphisec are required by security teams to limit human intervention.
“It is an honor to be recognized by the World Economic Forum as a 2020 Technology Pioneer,” said Ronen Yehoshua, CEO of Morphisec. “Businesses cannot react fast enough to the economic damage caused by cyber breaches, especially those that have never existed before. Morphisec is helping customers stay one step ahead of the adversary in these unprecedented times with a proactive defense strategy that blocks the attack, before it has the chance to cause damage. We look forward to contributing to the Forum’s global cyber community.”
Morphisec’s lightweight approach is also in demand by government agencies across the globe looking to secure critical infrastructure. It’s currently working with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Silicon Valley Innovation Program (SVIP) to develop a moving target defense-based solution that prevents attacks against financial institutions without reducing the overall performance of VDI environments.
As a Technology Pioneer honoree, Morphisec will join the World Economic Forum’s Global Innovators community, an invitation-only group of the world’s most promising start-ups at the forefront of revolutionary innovations. Morphisec will join the World Economic Forum’s initiatives, activities, and events to bring valuable insight into critical global discussions.
This is the 20th year of the World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers program. Past honorees include Google, Airbnb, kickstarter, Mozilla, Spotify, Twitter, and Palantir Technologies. The full list of 2020 Technology Pioneer recipients can be found here.
Morphisec delivers an entirely new level of innovation with its Moving Target Defense-powered Unified Threat Prevention Platform — placing defenders in a prevent-first posture against the most advanced threats to the enterprise, including unknown threats, APTs, zero-days, ransomware, evasive fileless attacks and web-borne exploits. Morphisec provides a crucial, small-footprint memory-defense layer that easily deploys into a company’s existing security infrastructure to form a simple, highly effective, cost-efficient prevention stack that is truly disruptive to today’s existing cybersecurity model.
