SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Cyphort, the next generation Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) company, announced today that it was named a leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in the report, “The Forrester Wave™: Automated Malware Analysis Wave Q2 2016”. The report, written by Forrester Analysts Jeff Pollard and Kelley Mak, cites Cyphort for building “an analytic offering focused on behaviors and machine learning rather than pure malware analysis.” Cyphort leverages the power of machine learning combined with behavioral inspection analytics to create a detection mechanism that continuously evolves as it finds more threats and learns more nuances of malware behavior.
The automated malware analysis market is growing according to the Forrester report. It states, “…more security professionals see malware analysis as a way to address their top challenges. This market growth is in large part due to the fact that security and risk pros increasingly trust automated malware analysis providers to act as their highest fidelity alert, trusting them beyond other security technology.”
Cyphort is the second of the Forrester Wave’s nonportfolio leaders in the report, which also states that “strong object analysis across Windows, Apple and Android operating systems and object types provides a comprehensive solution.”
“It is an honor to be recognized as a leader by a distinguished analyst organization like Forrester and we are thrilled to see dedicated research on this growing market,” said Manoj Leelanvias, president and CEO of Cyphort. “As a leading automated malware analysis tool, Cyphort addresses top challenges for enterprises by prioritizing threats and reducing time from detection to remediation.”
Cyphort is able to see threats across multiple vectors including web, email, file sharing and lateral traffic. Additionally, Cyphort is delivered as software that can be installed on general-purpose servers, virtual machines or AWS cloud environments. Built upon an extensive open API, Cyphort integrates with the larger security infrastructure environment to enable greater coverage and threat containment abilities.
The report notes that “as signature-based technologies become outdated and less effective, improved flexibility will dictate which providers will lead the pack.” The report later states: “A strong go-to market strategy relying on partners with dedicated account teams makes purchasing simple, with Cyphort fitting well with clients that want to standalone innovative vendors and deployment flexibility.”
In addition to being recognized as a leader by Forrester, Cyphort’s innovative Advanced Threat Defense Platform was recently named ‘Best Enterprise Security Solution’ by SC Magazine.
