Nyotron Wins Gold in 2017 IT World Award for Endpoint Security

Esteemed award recognizes achievement across all aspects of IT, validating an enterprise need for Nyotron's Threat-Agnostic approach to defense

SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2017) - Nyotron, the creator of Threat-Agnostic Defense™, today announced that Network Products Guide, the industry's leading technology research and advisory guide, has named Nyotron as a gold winner in the 12th Annual IT World Awards® in the category of endpoint security. Network Products Guide sponsors the world's premier information technology awards, honoring achievements across all aspects of the information technology industry. Winners around the world will be honored in San Francisco on Monday, June 26, 2017, during the 2017 SVUS Red Carpet Awards ceremony dinner.

Nyotron's award-winning endpoint security platform PARANOID is distinguished in the market for its acclaimed Threat-Agnostic Defense, which features behavioral pattern mapping (BPM) technology. The platform leverages an agent/server architecture to understand what normal computer behavior looks like and what to do when suspicious behavior tries to access or damage data on an endpoint. This architecture gives PARANOID the ability to stop any attack, regardless of the type of threat or the methodology used to infiltrate the network. Using this Threat-Agnostic Defense approach, PARANOID can detect and block unknown threats that other technologies do not have the ability to stop.

"It's an honor to be named an endpoint security gold winner by the esteemed industry publication IT World," said Nir Gaist, CEO of Nyotron. "Enterprises are continually bombarded with unknown threats, yet despite their heavy investment in security solutions, attackers are still able to bypass next-generation defenses and steal valuable data. This gold recognition from IT World strongly validates our Threat-Agnostic approach, which has made waves in the industry for its ability to stop all threats, regardless of attack type, location or technique, including all ransomware and unknown and undiscovered malware variants."

The coveted IT World Awards are an annual achievements and recognition program in which a broad spectrum of industry voices participates. The awards encompass the best of IT in organizational performance, products and services, hot technologies, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, customer satisfaction and public relations.
