HERZLIYA, Israel, October 14, 2020 — XM Cyber, the multi-award-winning leader in breach and attack simulation (BAS), advanced cyber risk analytics and cloud security posture management, today announced that it was named “Overall Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Solution Provider of the Year” in the fourth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program.
“It’s the second time we receive this prestigious award, corroborating our commitment to helping organizations take an entirely new approach to evaluating their security posture, ensuring they are always one step ahead of cyber-attacks,” said Boaz Gorodissky, CTO & Co-founder, XM Cyber.
“By continuously challenging their network with our platform, organizations gain clear visibility of the cyber risks as if seeing it from the eyes of the attacker, as well as an efficient, data-driven actionable remediation plan aimed at the most burning issues to fix,” Gorodissky added.
The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of cybersecurity companies, technologies and products. This year, more than 3,700 nominations were received and judged by an independent panel of experts within the information security sector, with representation from industry experts across a wide variety of verticals. The panel recognized XM Cyber as the Overall APT Solution Provider of the Year for the company’s high marks in six different categories, including:
- Ease of Use and Manageability
The XM Cyber platform identifies the most important security gaps and prioritizes remediation, providing enterprises with a continuous cycle of security measurement, prioritization and improvement.
