"Congratulations to E8 Security for winning the Best Cybersecurity Startup category in the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards," said Holger Schulze, founder of the Information Security Community on LinkedIn which organizes the awards program.

In addition to this latest accolade, earlier this week E8 Security unveiled its E8 Security Fusion Platform, which transforms traditional security operations by automating the learning of user and device behaviors to discover malicious activity unknown to security analysts, resulting in improved alert quality and accelerated investigations to make security operations more proactive. Security operations teams are able to reach conclusions quickly by offloading the data mining, analysis, and correlation process, typically done manually, to the Fusion Platform, which provides them with answers to questions they didn't even know to ask.
"At E8 Security, our team and the environment they create fosters ingenuity and is constantly driven by understanding our customers' challenges," said Matt Jones, CEO, E8 Security. "Being recognized with an award of this nature by security industry practitioners is further validation that we have quickly achieved a culture of collaborative innovation that has allowed us to ascend to a leadership position in Behavioral Analytics, which is transforming the way security operations teams detect, hunt for, and respond to hidden threats inside their organizations."
