2014 Cyber Defense Magazine Awards Announced: 21CT Honored as 'Most Innovative'

Recognizing Innovation During the RSA® Conference 2014, Cyber Defense Magazine Selects 21CT as Most Innovative in Network Security

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 24, 2014) - RSA Conference - 21CT announced today that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry's leading electronic information security magazine and a media partner of the RSA® Conference 2014, has named LYNXeon winner of the Best SIEM Product in the Most Innovative category. The award underscores the dramatic shift happening in the SIEM market, as LYNXeon is unlike any traditional SIEM. By providing network behavioral analysis and visualization of disparate network data, LYNXeon moves organizations beyond SIEM technology by visually illuminating malicious behavior and rewarding the curiosity of today's proactive security analyst.

While SIEM continues to be a top project for security managers at large enterprises, it is clear that these organizations are now re-imagining what SIEM can mean for their security posture. Many legacy SIEM solutions lack the ease of use and depth of intelligence needed to effectively hunt down the threats lurking on the network. Forward-thinking security analysts are turning to next-gen SIEM alternatives such as LYNXeon to effectively address this challenge and gain insight from their data quickly and visually.

RSA Conference attendees can use LYNXeon themselves while on the show floor by visiting booth 2420.

Recognizing Next-Generation Security Innovation

After many months of review and judging by leading independent information security experts, Cyber Defense Magazine is pleased to have selected 21CT as a winner for its LYNXeon solution:

"We're thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace, and that's why 21CT has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward-thinking players who think outside of the box," said Pierluigi Paganini, editor-in-chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

LYNXeon is a network behavior analysis and visualization platform that automatically illuminates the behavior happening within a network, pinpointing malicious activity, highlighting noncompliant systems and rewarding the natural curiosity of today's security analyst. Using LYNXeon, multinational organizations and military departments fuse together network data to visualize the entirety of malicious behavior, rather than sending out unintelligent and overwhelming alerts and notifications.

"Security professionals are overwhelmed by the volume of notifications and alerts coming from both perimeter systems and SIEM implementations, many of which ultimately get ignored due to their lack of veracity," said Mike Hamilton, 21CT director of product marketing. "Our goal with LYNXeon is to allow companies to see the behavior in their network and search through that visual landscape using security analytics. As a result, analysts gain the intelligence needed to get to the root of malicious activity, and are empowered to make decisions faster and with more confidence. CDM's recognition of LYNXeon further validates our company as an innovator, offering next-generation analytics and interactive data visualization technology to identify and mitigate previously undiscovered threats."

21CT was also recently named a 2014 SC Magazine Excellence Awards Finalist in the category of Best Emerging Technology and recognized by Gartner as a "Cool Vendor" in security intelligence. To learn more about LYNXeon from 21CT, please visit
