Balbix Wins 2020 Fortress Cyber Security Award for Network Security

BreachControl™ recognized for industry-first use of AI to proactively monitor cyber risk

SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Business Intelligence Group today announced that Balbix Inc. has won the 2020 Fortress Cyber Security Awards in the Network Security 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 the growing threat from hackers.

Balbix BreachControl™ enables CISOs and IT security teams to assess and report on their breach risk by predicting critical breach scenarios, helping users prioritize security operations and projects, and ultimately improving security posture. It’s the industry’s first system to leverage predictive analytics and artificial intelligence (AI) to provide comprehensive breach risk calculation visualized via a searchable and clickable heat map. The platform enables enterprises to proactively understand their breach risk and cyber-resilience.

“Tackling the ever-increasing attack surface, with proliferation of assets and data across several cloud providers, third-party vendors, BYOD devices, on-prem infrastructure, retail and Internet of Things (IoT) devices, to name a few, is not a human scale problem anymore,” says Vinay Sridhara, CTO of Balbix. “Effective security assessment and remediation strategy for such environments means analyzing hundreds of millions of time-varying signals every second. The BreachControl™ platform provides unprecedented visibility and remediation strategies through the power of AI and empowers security teams to do their jobs effectively and efficiently. We are honored to be recognized by the Fortress Cyber Security Awards for our efforts in network security.”

“We are so proud to name Balbix as a winner in the 2020 Fortress Cyber Security Awards program,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “As our society continues to evolve and become more reliant on networks and data, companies like Balbix are critical at providing the protection and trust consumers demand.”
