IronNet Named 2021 Advanced Persistent Threat Solution Provider of the Year by CyberSecurity Breakthrough

Prestigious International Awards Program Recognizes Outstanding Information Security Products and Companies

MCLEAN, Va., Sept. 30, 2021 – IronNet, Inc. (NYSE: IRNT), an innovative leader transforming cybersecurity through Collective Defense, today announced its recognition as the “Overall Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Solution Provider of the Year” in the fifth annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards. The awards program is conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, an independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies, and products in the global information security market. This is the second consecutive year that IronNet has won a CyberSecurity Breakthrough award; it received the “Incident Response Solution of the Year” honor in 2020.

“The ability to detect attacks by APT actors at network speed with our advanced behavioral analytics, and to share that information among community members in real time, is transforming the way we defend in cybersecurity,” said IronNet Founder and Co-CEO, General (Ret.) Keith Alexander. “No company should have to defend alone, especially against nation-state-level threats, and we are proud to be leading the charge through Collective Defense.”

IronNet’s Collective Defense platform offers network detection and response (NDR) capabilities for advanced behavioral-based detection of unknown cyber threats via its IronDefense solution, and a system for real-time threat intelligence sharing within its IronDome solution. The platform provides a radar-like view of potential incoming attacks—a capability that is especially critical for rapidly detecting and mitigating advanced persistent threat attacks, where individual companies and organizations are forced to defend against nation-state-level cyber capabilities.

This real-time picture empowers organizations to more proactively defend against cyberattacks, both on-premise and in the cloud. The IronNet Collective Defense platform is the only solution that can both identify anomalous behaviors on enterprise networks and share this attack intelligence anonymously and in real time among Collective Defense community members.

“Calls for faster, more relevant threat information sharing continue to come from industry- and national-level cybersecurity initiatives, demonstrating the pressing need for a transformative approach to cybersecurity — one that operationalizes timely, relevant, and actionable threat sharing among industry peers and voluntarily with the government,” said James Johnson, managing director, CyberSecurity Breakthrough. “IronNet provides a true ‘breakthrough’ operational model for cybersecurity defense to empower organizations to defend together. Congratulations to IronNet on winning ‘Overall APT Solution Provider of the Year.’”

The mission of the CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work, and success in a range of information security categories, including Cloud Security, Threat Detection, Risk Management, Fraud Prevention, Mobile Security, Email Security, and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 4,000 nominations from 20+ different countries.
