Opportunity Cost (for Cyber Security). Potential benefits that an individual, investor, or business misses out on when choosing one alternative over another. The opportunity cost of a small business not employing proper cybersecurity is monetary. The opportunity cost of a large business not employing proper cybersecurity is reputation. Can a business in this century afford to be unprotected in this era of cyber criminality? You might think that cyber security is for the big players. You might hope that your organisation won’t be attacked. You might wonder if your login is secure. You might know that your employees aren’t trained well enough in cyber mitigation strategies.
Here are Five Israeli Cyber Security companies every (Australian) CISO needs to know.
Agentless Device Security
Armis protects businesses from unmanaged, compromised, or rogue devices and networks. Using an agent-less approach, Armis discovers, monitors, and provides visibility to all devices before they connect with the network, including outside connections from corporate assets.
The company’s out-of-band sensing technology delivers enhanced visibility via a centralized management console and fully identifies all connected devices and data, both from traditional and smart devices.
Armis was named a cool vendor in “Cool Vendors in Security for Midsize Enterprises, 2017” by the Gartner Research Group.
Cybersecurity for Online Assets
Cyberpion offers a solution designed to actively analyze the user’s online assets while also considering their connections to other assets. Its Discover-Monitor-Secure technology considers the entire infrastructure supply chain, including web, cloud, DNS, and PKI infrastructures that asset security depends on. Cyberpion’s SaaS solution continuously searches for assets and their connections, detects changes that affect the security of the organization, and provides protection and alerts.
Established by veterans in the cybersecurity industry, Cyberpion is trusted by businesses, including Fortune 500 companies, across a wide range of industries, including banking, insurance, telecom, media, retail, and energy.
Attack Surface Analysis and Remediation Platform
CyCognito has developed a platform that enables clients to identify all of the attacker-exposed assets in their IT ecosystem, providing them with a complete view of the attack surface. With its comprehensive global botnet, the platform reveals unknown and unmanaged assets associated with the client’s organization (including those of partners and subsidiaries) that are critical to its cybersecurity risk management. CyCognito can help organizations identify 30% to 300% more assets than they knew existed prior to using the platform.
CyCognito was named a cool vendor in “Cool Vendors in Cyber and IT Risk Management, 2020” by the Gartner Research Group.
Enterprise API Security Platform
Noname Security eliminates API security blind spots and protects enterprises from data leakage, authorization issues, abuse, misuse, and data corruption with no agents or network modifications.
Fortune 500 companies trust Noname’s holistic API security platform to see and secure their APIs.
Secure Authentication and Access
Silverfort delivers secure authentication and zero-trust policies across corporate networks and cloud environments without deploying any software agents or inline proxies. Using patent-pending technology, Silverfort enables risk-based multi-factor authentication for all sensitive users, devices, and resources, including systems that could not be protected until today, such as homegrown applications, IT infrastructure, file systems, and machine-to-machine access.
Silverfort allows organizations to prevent data breaches and achieve compliance instantly by preventing identity-based attacks across complex, dynamic networks and cloud environments.
The company was a winner of Frost & Sullivan’s New Product Innovation Award for 2017 and was named one of the “Cool Vendors in Identity and Access Management, 2019” by the Gartner Research Group.
Israel is not by chance a world-leader in creating cyber security companies. Israel noted the opportunity and balanced the costs involved with training their soldiers three decades ago in counteracting any threats. Now these soldiers take their skills and help enterprises realise their challenges. Harness Israel’s knowledge and experience. Your organisation will be safer because of your choice. Australians will be safer because their data will be secured.
