PETACH-TIKVA, ISRAEL--(Marketwire - Dec 6, 2012) - Seculert, the cloud-based advanced threat detection company, today announced it has been named a finalist in the Rookie Security Company of the Year category, for the 2013 SC Magazine Awards. This category acknowledges vendors who are disrupting the industry with new approaches and solutions to fight the growing complexities of cyber attacks and IT security demands.
Launched in 2011, Seculert is a cloud-based advanced threat detection company that discovers malware and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) that have gone undetected by bypassing existing security solutions. Seculert operates with no software or appliances, resulting in a low total cost of ownership. Because Seculert intercepts and collects actual communications between a customer's network and live botnets, there are no false positives.
"As we see simple malware attack tools and off-the-shelf Remote Access Trojans used time and time again, companies are realizing that the key to APTs is not their advanced nature, but their persistency and the only way to detect these persistent threats is to use real-time cloud-based analysis," said Dudi Matot, CEO of Seculert. "Being a finalist for the Best Rookie Security Company of the Year validates our vision for a new approach to combating malware."
The SC Magazine Awards, now in its 16th year, are the premier global recognition for IT security professionals and products that fend off the seemingly endless security threats in today's corporate world. Hand-picked by SC Magazine's editorial team for their breadth of knowledge and experience in the information security industry, Seculert has been recognized for their achievements and technical excellence.
This acknowledgement follows recognition from Security Innovation Network (SINET) as one of the 16 most innovative cybersecurity companies as well as the release of Seculert Sense, a new cloud-based analysis engine that combines the use of customers' on-premise logs and Seculert's outbound intelligence gathered from live botnets, to identify advanced persistent threats (APT) and unknown malware.
