The Infocyte HUNT honored with a Silver Cybersecurity Product Award for Best Threat Hunting Solution
SAN ANTONIO, TX – Feb. 20, 2018
Infocyte, the threat hunting leader, today announced it was awarded a 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Award. The Infocyte HUNT threat hunting and compromise assessment platform received a Silver Cybersecurity Product Award for Best Threat Hunting Solution.
The Cybersecurity Excellence Awards is an annual competition honoring individuals and companies that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. The 2018 winners were selected on both the strength of their nomination and popular votes and comments received from the Information Security Community.
“Congratulations to Infocyte for being recognized as a winner in the Threat Hunting product category of the 2018 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards,” said Holger Schulze, CEO of Cybersecurity Insiders and founder of the 400,000-member Information Security Community on LinkedIn that organizes the awards program. “With over 400 entries in more than 70 categories, the 2018 awards are highly competitive, and all winners truly reflect the very best in today’s cybersecurity industry.”
Infocyte HUNT is a dedicated threat hunting platform built by former military threat hunters responsible for protecting the largest and most targeted networks in the world. It leverages military grade techniques and practices in an automated platform to simplify the hunting process and reduce the skill set required for hunting malware and advanced persistent threats (APTs). When prevention and security controls fail, Infocyte HUNT significantly reduces attacker dwell time—the period between infection and discovery—to deny them the ability to persist undetected, reduce business impact, and restore trust in a network’s health.
“We are honored to be recognized by the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards and the Information Security Community with this award,” said Chris Gerritz, founder and chief product officer, Infocyte. “The win validates that our simplified threat hunting approach using Forensic State Analysis resonates with security community as a top solution to detect and reduce the impact of hidden persistent threats.”
Details about the Cybersecurity Excellence Awards and the full list of 2018 winners are available online.
