XM Cyber Wins 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award

Attack Path Management Leader Was Recognized as Best for Threat Detection

HERZLIYA, Israel — June 22, 2021 — XM Cyber, the multi-award-winning leader in attack path management, announced today that it has won The Business Intelligence Group’s 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Awards in the Threat Detection category.

The industry awards program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep our data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers.

“Enterprises are faced with an ecosystem of security defenses but have little insight into how attackers see their networks and the routes they can take to their ‘crown jewel’ assets. Hackers explore every gap, waiting for changes that get them closer to your critical assets. The best defense is to take the same approach – be proactive in searching for attack paths and taking a risk-based approach to remediation,” explained Menachem Shafran, VP Product at XM Cyber.

XM Cyber brings a unique approach that uses the attacker’s perspective to find and remediate attack paths to critical enterprise assets across on-premises and multi-cloud networks.

“By identifying and prioritizing the protection of the most critical data, organizations wish to optimize their existing security investments and significantly reduce risk and the impact of a breach. The 2021 Fortress Cyber Security Award is a true testament to our team and its commitment to excellence in building a great product,” Shafran added.

For Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group, “2021 is rapidly becoming the toughest year for cybersecurity professionals and as our reliance on networks continues to accelerate, our identities and data have quickly become global currency, so security is more important than ever.”

“We are proud to recognize all of our winners and finalists who are on the frontlines of the effort to prepare, defend and respond to this growing threat.”
