XM Cyber Named 2020 Gartner Cool Vendor
Normally, we aim to make our blog a place where you can find actionable, cutting-edge information about cybersecurity and the role our company plays. Today, however, we want to depart from the norm a bit to reveal some exciting news.
XM Cyber has just been named a 2020 Gartner Cool Vendor in Security Operations and Threat Intelligence. And you can get our copy of the report here.
A Coveted Distinction
Becoming a Gartner Cool Vendor is a significant accomplishment. It’s a status that can’t be applied for; rather, all Cool Vendors are nominated by Gartner experts who research and analyze specific markets and vendors to uncover the most game-changing new technologies.
Receiving the “Cool Vendor Imprimatur” also signals to media organizations, market analysts, investors and enterprises everywhere that your company is doing something special and bears watching.
Qualifying for cool status is no small task, as vendors must meet some fairly exacting criteria. Among these criteria are the following:
- Cool vendors must be fewer than 10 years old with less than $100 million in annual revenue.
- Cool vendors must be considered “innovative” or “transformative” with regard to products, services and initiatives. This means developing impactful technology that allows users to do things they could not do before.
- They must have multiple customers attest to the value of the innovative products or services they are using. Customer traction and revenue growth are also key factors. Business impact is critical for Cool Vendors, rather than just developing “technology for technology’s sake.”
In short, companies earning this distinction must be innovative, impactful and intriguing.
XM Cyber was a distinguished BAS platform vendor to earn a Cool Vendor designation within the Security Operations and Threat Intelligence category. Our CEO, Noam Erez, responded to the news of the designation by noting that “being named one of Gartner’s 2020 Cool Vendors means that XM Cyber stands out from the crowd.” He also added that XM Cyber is one of “a new breed” of breach and attack simulation vendors.
What Sets Us Apart
At XM Cyber, we’ve created the first fully automated BAS platform — one that can protect your most critical assets in multiple environments. We were the first BAS vendor to extend the power of continuous, automated purple teaming into AWS, providing robust protection in hybrid environments, and helping organizations better manage migration risks.
In addition to Gartner’s designation, we’ve received more than 20 industry awards and have been recognized as a “technology pioneer” by the World Economic Forum. Every day, leading financial institutions, critical infrastructure organizations, and manufacturers across the globe use XM Cyber’s industry-leading BAS platform to protect their most valuable crown jewels.
If you ask us, it doesn’t get much cooler than that.
