Nyotron Wins 2019 Fortress Cyber Security Award for Endpoint Security

SANTA CLARA, Calif., June 6, 2019 – Nyotron, provider of the industry’s first automatic Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solution that both detects malware and prevents damage to endpoints in real-time, today announced The Business Intelligence Group has selected Nyotron’s PARANOID solution as a winner of its 2019 Fortress Cyber Security Award in the Software & Applications category. 

The annual Fortress Cyber Security Award program identifies and rewards the world’s leading companies and products that keep organizations’ data and electronic assets safe from the ever-growing threat from hackers. Executives from the cyber security and information technology fields volunteered to serve as judges using the Business Intelligence Group’s proprietary scoring methodology.

Nyotron has pioneered Endpoint Prevention and Response (EPR) with its PARANOID solution that takes traditional Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) to the next level by preventing damage, not just detecting it. EPR is a new threat-agnostic approach that protects laptops, desktops and servers, and provides precise visibility into the attack. PARANOID automatically whitelists trusted operating system behavior and rejects everything else. 

“We have developed a new security paradigm that prevents damage regardless of the type of attack or how it penetrated your environment,” said Nir Gaist, CTO, Nyotron. “Nyotron PARANOID’s OS-Centric Positive Security solution is a critical component to a true defense-in-depth approach because it thwarts known and unknown attacks before damage is done.”

“We are so proud to name Nyotron as a winner in the Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our expert judges that the entire group of innovators and innovations are the tip of the spear helping to prepare, defend and respond to the growing threat of cyber attacks. Congratulations to the entire team.”
