Cynet’s unique and powerful approach to enterprise security, in addition to its industry-leading team of expert analysts and researchers, has brought Cynet to the forefront of the cybersecurity market, with an ever-growing global customer list and industry recognition.
Cynet’s flagship product is an advanced threat detection and response platform that accurately detects sophisticated cyber-attacks such as Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), advanced malware, trojans, ransomware and zero-day attacks that may be lurking in an organization.
Cynet’s full enterprise visibility of endpoint and network activity allows it to detect threat indicators across the attack chain. Through continuous monitoring across files, user behaviors, network traffic and endpoints, behavioral and interaction indicators are assessed to give a complete picture of an attack operation over time.
All this is enhanced by Cynet’s expert analyst and monitoring team Cynet CyOps, providing 24/7 monitoring, tracking, insight and response to threat activity within the enterprise environment.
Over the past year, Cynet researchers, working in cooperation with researchers from BugSec, discovered and reported two major threats: the SNAP LG G3 vulnerability, and FireStorm, a critical vulnerability in next generation firewalls – saving organizations and consumers worldwide from potentially costly consequences.
In 2016, Cynet raised $7-million in funding from US-based hedge fund, Lazarus.
