Cymmetria, a developer of next-generation, comprehensive cyber deception solutions, today announced it has been named a 2016 Cool Vendor within the Security Infrastructure Protection category. Gartner's Cool Vendors in security infrastructure protection offer approaches that are distinct for their creativity and suitability to specific needs.
“We’re honored to be recognized as a Cool Vendor by Gartner,” said Gadi Evron, founder and CEO of Cymmetria. “The threat landscape is becoming more complex and dynamic every day, putting enterprises, governments, and people at serious risk. At Cymmetria, we beat attackers at their own game, turning the tables so defenders come out ahead. Deception is a viable cyber defense strategy and Cymmetria’s unique approach is harnessing its potential.”
According to Gartner, protection technologies and activities are allowing businesses to identify weaknesses and threats sooner and with more clarity. Given the expanse and diversity of the techniques used by motivated attackers, Gartner believes that CISOs must consider every concept and solution to improve their defenses against a range of threats.
