Founded in 2012 by three former members of an elite cybersecurity military unit, Cybereason offers innovations around endpoint protection, detection and response; next-generation antivirus; managed monitoring and IR services. Its flagship solution, the Cybereason Endpoint Detection and Response Platform, leverages Big Data, behaviour analytics and machine learning to uncover, in real-time, complex cyber-attacks designed to evade traditional defenses.
At the time of Cybereason’s inception, many companies were still at the early stages of their digital transformation journeys and investments were focused more on security rather than cybersecurity. This meant that while they have the technologies and solutions in place to secure their systems, they remain one step behind against threat actors and they lack the knowledge and capabilities to keep up with them, let alone stay ahead.
Lior Div, Cybereason’s CEO and cofounder, together with his two other cofounders Yossi Naar and Yonatan StriemAmit who are now the firm’s Chief Visionary Officer and CTO respectively, recognised this gap in the market and sought to develop a game-changing platform that will give enterprises an edge against cyber adversaries.
