Active Breach Detection Recognized as Important Innovation for Solving the Escalating Data Breach Problem

Cyber Defense MagazineSAN FRANCISCO, Calif., RSA Conference – April 21, 2015 – LightCyber, a leading provider of Active Breach Detection solutions, today announced it has received the “Hot Company in Enterprise Security Solutions 2015” award from Cyber Defense Magazine, a leading electronic information security magazine and media partner of the RSA® Conference 2015. These awards are for start-up, early stage, later stage or public companies in the information security market that have a unique and compelling value proposition for their product or service. LightCyber was recognized for its innovative approach to solving the escalating data breach problem that is facing most companies and organizations.

“The Hot Company in Enterprise Security Solutions award reflects the critical value that our novel LightCyber Magna Active Breach Detection platform offers in finding active attacks on our customers’ networks before they are able to cause damage,” said Jason Matlof, executive vice president, LightCyber. “With the last 24 months and the experience of massive security breaches across multiple industries, it’s clear that while traditional threat prevention infrastructure is critically important, it can not be 100 percent effective. Realistically, companies must presume that they can and will be breached, and focus new resources on tools that can efficiently and accurately detect a targeted attacker once they have penetrated your network.”

“We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why LightCyber has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine.  Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.

The LightCyber Magna platform is a novel Active Breach Detection solution that employs behavioral profiling of user accounts and network devices to detect active attackers that have circumvented legacy threat prevention systems. Instead of alerting on technical artifacts that might or might not be associated with an attack, the LightCyber Magna platform identifies actual operational behaviors that cybercriminals must use to perpetrate their attack. These include reconnaissance activities, lateral movements from machine to machine, external communications with command centers and, ultimately, data exfiltration. The LightCyber Magna platform is the industry’s only solution to integrate both network activity with endpoint state into a single analytical detection domain to increase the accuracy and actionability of breach indicators. Accuracy and actionability help reduce attack dwell time and the associated damage potential – the ultimate goal of security organizations.

LightCyber security experts are available to discuss Active Breach Detection strategies and to demonstrate the Magna platform at the RSA Conference in Booth 130, South Hall, Moscone Convention Center, San Francisco from April 21-24. In addition, a new white paper provides an interesting perspective on how to Flip the Odds on Cyber Attackers and protect critical enterprise assets.
