Cybereason Employs Israeli Defense Force Cyber Security Expertise to Combat Data Breach Frustration

Listen to Boston-based Cybereason, and they’ll tell you that security customers are tired and frustrated of breach after breach, despite the best efforts of cybersecurity defense teams.

That’s where the company's ’military-grade offensive detection response’ solutions come to the rescue, with the help of its partners, of course.

’To the partner community: Your customers, they’re fed up with the security industry,’ said Sam Curry, chief product officer for Cybereason. ’Those who have invested in it for a long time have bought box after box and service after service, and they’re still seeing their colleagues, if not themselves, get breached.’

Cybereason was founded by former Israeli Defense Force soldiers with expertise in cybermilitary intelligence. The company promises continuous situational awareness, automatic malicious activity detection and rapid response. Most importantly, according to Curry, Cybereason operates on the offensive while other cybersecurity firms constantly work on the defensive.

Curry said traditional defenses are no match for malicious attacks like the recent breach of Yahoo.

’The way to actually stop an attacker, if you will, or seriously jeopardize the attacker’s operation is by shifting our focus on how we identify and detect and respond to an attacker,’ said Israel Barak, chief information security officer at Cybereason. ’As opposed to what a lot of folks are doing today, [which is] stopping or blocking specific files, or specific caches, or specific IP addresses, or specific domains that really mean nothing.’
