Nyotron Honored as Hot Company Winner in the 5th Annual 2017 Cyber Defense Magazine InfoSec Awards in Endpoint Security Solutions

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 15, 2017) - Nyotron, the creator of threat-agnostic security, announced today that Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry's leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2017, has named its flagship PARANOID platform the winner in Hot Company in Endpoint Security Solutions.

After many months of review and judging by leading independent information security experts, Cyber Defense Magazine is pleased to have selected Nyotron as a winner for its Paranoid platform.

"We're thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace, and that's why Nyotron 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.

Taking that next-generation innovation a step farther, the PARANOID platform is able to protect enterprises from advanced and zero-day threats by understanding what normal computer behavior looks like and what to do when suspicious behavior tries to damage data on an endpoint. The solution incorporates a threat-agnostic defense approach, enabling PARANOID to stop any attack, regardless of the type of threat or the methodology used to infiltrate a network. By leveraging this approach, only PARANOID can address unknown threats that other technologies are unable to stop.

The PARANOID line includes Nyotron War Room, which provides high-profile enterprises real-time visibility into the threat landscape with a unique 3D representation of the security status of their endpoints. It also includes Nyotron Managed Defense Services, which deliver monitoring, alerting, management, intelligence, research and incident-response services to organizations across all market segments.

"CDM's recognition of PARANOID validates our company as an innovator," said Nir Gaist, CEO of Nyotron. "The PARANOID platform's approach to protection strongly challenges traditional antivirus and other endpoint vendors that determine attackers' methods and technology after an attack has been executed. Nyotron's threat-agnostic approach assumes threats will get into the network and instead focuses on the damage stage of an attack, identifying threats before attackers are able to gain access to or abscond with an organization's critical assets. This industry honor is a ringing endorsement of the fact that PARANOID is ahead of the curve when it comes to the best-of-the-best products that can provide the highest security in the endpoint security market."
