NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Comilion, the cybersecurity collaboration company, today announced that it was named a top 50 startup to watch in Startup50’s Big 50-2016 report, an annual roundup of the top tech startups of the year. Hundreds of startups enter the rigorous vetting process where they are evaluated by a panel of experts and voted on by readers to determine the top 50 that represent the technologies, market sectors, and trends that will challenge the status quo. See: http://startup50.com/big-50-2016-final-50/. Previous Big 50 startups have achieved billion dollar valuations (Cloudera), been acquired by major incumbents (Eucalyptus) and completed successful IPOs (Square).
“I won’t be at all surprised if several of the startups in the Big 50-2016 list are household names in the coming years,” said Jeff Vance, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Startup50. “This is a really strong lineup, with startups tackling everything from artificial intelligence to water treatment to cyber-security and Big Data.”
“We are very pleased to be recognized as a top startup to watch in the Startup50 Report for our ability to help companies to unify their security capabilities by effectively collaborating in a single platform that brings together experts, tools and their data,” said Kobi Freedman, Founder and CEO of Comilion. “Due to the significant skill shortage of SOC analysts and incident response experts, efficient and effective threat handling has become a top priority for companies. Just last week, Intel Security published an important report on security collaboration’s impact (intel-security-study-reveals-why-collaboration-is-key-to-stopping-advanced-cyber-threats/) and it’s importance to every CISO. The Comilion platform overcomes the technical, governmental, data privacy, compliance, and corporate policy obstacles that prevent security collaboration and automated incident handling across company, country and industry boundaries.”
Comilion is a fully-decentralized, on-premise platform for internal and inter-company security sharing, collaboration and orchestration through the entire threat investigation life cycle. It enables companies to create security communities, to automate the enrichment of real-time threat intelligence and research findings and provide unmatched context based collaboration between SOC teams, Incident response, IT and other organizational stakeholders across the security process.
Through integration with security tools, intelligence repositories and social networking capabilities, Comilion automates “need-to-know” sharing and collaboration on threat indicators, malicious activity and critical security-related events/trends. It automatically controls the flow of collaboration to maintain internal and external compliance and prevent participants from violating privacy laws and regulatory mandates. Comilion allows security teams to hunt and handle incidents faster, and removes obstacles that prevent cross-company collaboration.
