In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
-- GamaSec clearly addresses one of the most glaring weaknesses in the global cybersecurity community: the lack of skilled cybersecurity professionals in SMBs. Since its founding in 2006, it has remained a leader in its field by maintaining a strict focus on website security for small and medium-sized businesses – by monitoring traffic, common methods of attack, and common vulnerabilities to build a service from the ground up that was geared toward this need.
-- GamaSec offers a unique combination of security monitoring, response, and remediation capabilities – that had been available exclusively to large enterprises – and now is also an option for the previously neglected SMB sector. Usually reserved for large companies with big budgets, true website protection and financial assurance is now available to small businesses in a matter of minutes. Millions of SMBs can now keep their websites secure without becoming security experts, by relying on GamaSec specialists to detect, isolate, and defend their sensitive data around the clock.
-- In an industry-first, GamaSec has teamed up with partners to offer SMB customers a Data Breach Limited Warranty. Users can enroll quickly online for comprehensive security and financial peace of mind with the GamaSure PLUS package, with coverage of up to $50,000 in the event of a data breach – to help clean up after a website attack. Eligible expenses include data restoration, customer notification, credit monitoring, public relations, and more for impacted users.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
A globally recognized pioneer in the search for web application vulnerabilities, GamaSec honed its technological expertise by participating in large-scale global security exercises throughout Europe and Israel, for both military and civilian security organizations. In fact, the company was founded with deep roots in highly-sensitive military/government entities. It was one of the first security firms to introduce Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) technologies in a Software-as-a-Service product line designed for the business.
The company’s services have repeatedly passed extensive and rigorous testing in order to comply with levels of security that surpass the standards of most commercially-available scanning solutions. Most of the currently available commercial solutions are developed for signature-based attacks that use generic, open-source rules and offer disparate, single-function security tools. GamaSec has been developed with an altogether different infrastructure that allows it to conduct several security functions simultaneously without the need to purchase and install hardware or software or become a security expert to use its service.
The convenience, affordability and quality of coverage make GamaSec an ideal service that is especially attractive to the SMB market. GamaSec has remained an active participant in security research as a pioneer in the field of vulnerability identification, definition and containment. This continuing effort allows GamaSec to be among the first and fastest at spotting and mitigating emerging threats.
