We are pleased to announce that Seceon has received yet another industry honor, being named one of NetworkWorld’s Hot Security Start-ups for 2016. As part of their annual ranking of exciting new entrants in the area of network security, NetworkWorld’s 2016 class of start-ups included 13 companies that provide a wide range of security functionality, from “cloud security services to fraud prevention to protecting supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and Internet of Things devices.” This year’s front-runners are recognized at a time when the frequency of advanced attacks and malicious threats has never been greater, creating a critical need for innovation capable of protecting enterprise organizations and consumers alike.
Since our inception, Seceon has been focused on providing the visibility required by enterprises to immediately detect advanced security threats. Our technology provides a simple, fully automated approach to detecting and stopping the threats that matter. The innovative approach being recognized by NetworkWorld and other publications recently, leverages an unmatched combination of behavioral analysis, machine learning and dynamic threat intelligence to deliver rich visibility, holistic threat detection and containment of threats in real-time.
According to Tim Greene, Senior Editor at NetworkWorld, Seceon made the 2016 list based on the realization that “(security) breaches are inevitable, (and) stopping them quickly is an important defense in order to limit damage.” Greene went on to acknowledge that “Seceon does this, but also can automate responses to shorten the time the attack is effective by triggering third-party devices on the network to block threats. It also makes associations that otherwise would have to be made manually, freeing up human analysts from mundane chores.”
We are honored that Greene and NetworkWorld have recognized the benefits of our technology. Similar sentiments are being voiced by some of our 40+ customers engagement who also see first-hand how true, real-time visibility into users, devices, applications and flows provides the security necessary to protect today’s enterprise.
