LOS ALTOS, Calif. & RAMAT GAN, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--LightCyber, a leading provider of Behavioral Attack Detection solutions, today announced that it has established its EMEA headquarters in Amsterdam and is building a regional team and network of channel partners to serve the needs of European companies and organizations. Run by Paul Couturier, vice president and general manager LightCyber EMEA, the company has already hired a staff in multiple countries across Europe and is poised to expand rapidly. Mischa Peters joins as head of sales engineering for EMEA.
The LightCyber Magna Behavioral Attack Detection platform provides companies with security visibility into active attacks from cybercriminals and insiders that have otherwise already circumvented traditional prevention-oriented security infrastructure. The LightCyber Magna platform employs behavioral profiling through machine learning to detect these active attackers by identifying the anomalous operational behaviors of the attack, and enables security analysts to rapidly identify and curtail the attack before damage is done.
“European organizations face an ever-increasing frequency of external and insider threats, with the potential of an eventual data breach, loss of intellectual property and other serious problems becoming a near-certainty,” said Paul Couturier. “Security industry leaders recognize the clear need for a shift in security architectures to add attack detection infrastructure to complement conventional preventative security solutions. With Behavioral Attack Detection, companies can find sophisticated attackers before they succeed in their objectives. We are ready to help our customers and partners across EMEA to bring these solutions to market and meet pressing customer needs.”
Couturier is a highly accomplished senior sales and business executive with a track record of rapid development in Europe. Previously he served as vice president and EMEA general manager of Cyan, Inc., and earlier had the same role in Blue Cat Networks. He also served on the executive board and as vice president and EMEA general manager of Tipping Point. Couturier serves on company advisory boards, including Cato Networks.
