Led by Lior Div, CEO, Cybereason provides a platform that continuously hunts for known and unknown malicious activities within an environment to reduce time to detect and confirm a breach. It connects isolated pieces of malicious activity, visually presenting the complete ‘attack story’ as it unfolds in real-time. The company’s Malop Hunting Engine analyzes up to eight million events per second to reveal the key elements of an attack, including its timeline, root cause, adversarial activity, malware involved, communication inside and outside of the environment and the affected endpoints and users. This information is delivered to security analysts via the Cybereason Incident Response Console, which presents critical contextual data in an accessible way.
The company also has offices in Tel Aviv, Israel.
