Founder and CEO Chris Gerritz to Address Company Growth and Malware Hunt Technology
San Antonio, TX / Boston, MA – February 25, 2016 – Infocyte, a provider of cybersecurity malware hunt technology, today announced that it will be presenting at the upcoming American Growth Capital (AGC) 2016 Information Security and Broader Technology Growth Conference Monday and Tuesday, February 29th and March 1st in San Francisco.
Russ Workman, AGC Partner – Investment Banking, stated, “We invited Infocyte to address the conference as they are a leader in facilitating Cyber Hunting, which we believe is a segment poised for rapid growth in the near future.”
Infocyte founder and CEO Chris Gerritz will be addressing the recent growth and success of the company and in particular, the meteoric rise of malware hunt as a security must in today’s breach-infested environment. Gerritz will be presenting on Monday – February 29, 2016, at 11:45 (PST) in the Yorkshire Room.
“Hacks and breaches have never been more prolific in today’s IT infrastructure. Malware is often resident inside the organization’s networks and endpoints for months, sometimes years, before being detected,” stated Chris Gerritz. “I look forward to presenting how Infocyte Hunt™ enables organizations to discover security breaches and deny attackers the ability to persist on their networks undetected – without the burden of complicated equipment or endpoint software (agent) installations.”
The 12th Annual West Coast conference will feature 250 presentations by CEOs from the hottest public and private technology companies and 17 panel discussions on timely tech and investing trends moderated by industry leaders. The cornerstone of the event, which is unlike any other tech conference, is the expected 4,000 one-on-one meetings held among companies, investors, and strategic acquirers, within an atmosphere where participants are able to interact on a more personal level.
Infocyte provides malware hunt technology developed by former US Air Force cybersecurity officers. The company closes the Breach Detection Gap – the time that exists between infection and discovery – denying attackers the ability to exploit resources and restoring network health.
