Lastline Named Cyber Security Leader by Cyber Defense Magazine
Award recognizes company’s innovation in the field of information security, malware detection, and breach protection
REDWOOD CITY, CA – October 24, 2017 – Lastline®, the leader in advanced network-based malware protection, today announced that the company has received Cyber Defense Magazine’s coveted Cyber Security Leaders award for 2017. This recognition reinforces Lastline’s hard-earned reputation as the industry’s innovative and most effective advanced malware detection and breach protection solution as evaluated by third-party testing agencies, regardless of the malware strain or attack scheme. Last week NSS Labs announced that, for the second year in a row, Lastline was the top performer in the Breach Detection Systems Group Test, again achieving 100 percent Security Effectiveness.
“Malware’s constant evolution and increasing sophistication requires an innovative approach that gives enterprise security teams the full visibility and context they need to detect, blueprint, and fully mitigate a network breach before it can cause serious damage,” said Bert Rankin, Lastline’s Chief Marketing Officer. “This CDM award is reflective of our success in protecting enterprises from advanced malware, and we are honored to receive this industry recognition.”
The judges were CISSP, FMDHS, and CEH certified security professionals who voted based on their independent review of each company. CDM has a flexible philosophy to find innovative players with new and unique technologies. CDM is always asking, “What’s Next?” so are looking for next generation InfoSec solutions.
“The competition was fierce. After many months of review and judging by leading independent information security experts, Cyber Defense Magazine is pleased to have selected those on this list as the Top 25 hottest and next-generation companies to watch this year and into 2018,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine, in their press release announcing the award.
Lastline’s recognition as a Cyber Security Leader builds on what has already been a momentous year for the company. Lastline signed partnerships with IBM and Forcepoint, completed a $28.5M Series C round of fundraising, and announced Lastline Breach Defender™, which provides an unparalleled dynamic blueprint of a network breach. The company has also received several industry awards including the Red Herring 100, two gold IT World awards, two Golden Bridge awards, and five Info Security Products Guide Global Excellence Awards®.
