MCLEAN, Va.-- IronNet, Inc. (NYSE: IRNT), an innovative leader Transforming Cybersecurity Through Collective DefenseSM, today announced it won the 2022 Global Infosec Award in the category of Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) Detection and Response from Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM), the industry’s leading electronic information security magazine. The announcement was made during the RSA Conference in San Francisco, CA.
“IronNet is honored to be recognized as a leader in APT detection with this award from Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Don Closser, Chief Product Officer of IronNet. “In the current heightened threat environment, IronNet has distinguished itself by demonstrating its ability to detect APT actor behavior and prevent it from disrupting organizations that rely on cyberspace to conduct daily business, learn, and thrive.”
“IronNet embodies three major features we judges look for in our winners: understanding tomorrow’s threats, today; providing a cost-effective solution; and innovating in unexpected ways that can help mitigate cyber risk and get one step ahead of the next breach,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher of Cyber Defense Magazine.
IronNet Collective DefenseSM platform uses its industry leading network detection and response (NDR) capabilities to detect and stop bad actors and APTs. With the use of Collective Defense, IronNet can identify unique attack intelligence across its customer base in real time, enabling them to spot APT patterns of behavior and stop bad actors in their tracks.
IronNet’s NDR capabilities were also recently recognized with the highest possible rating for Enterprise Advanced Security NDR Detection by SE Labs. When testers at SE Labs completed their attack sequence, which included attempting to steal information, damage systems, and connect other systems to the network, IronNet’s NDR product detected every attack, earning SE Labs’ highest possible rating for Enterprise Advanced Security NDR Detection.
“Collective Defense is absolutely necessary in this fight against more persistent and sophisticated threats,” Closser said. “IronNet’s platform provides early threat warnings to its customers by giving them relevant and actionable insight into potential incoming attacks.”
