LightCyber Recognized by CRN as a 2015 Emerging Vendor

Selection List Features the Coolest Tech Startups Heating Up the IT Channel

LOS ALTOS, Calif. & RAMAT GAN, Israel--()--LightCyber, a leading provider of Active Breach Detection solutions, today announced that it has been named to The Channel Company’s exclusive 2015 CRN Emerging Vendors List. The annual list features up-and-coming technology vendors that have introduced innovative new products, creating opportunities for channel partners in North America to create high-margin, cutting-edge solutions for their customers. The vendors recognized this year have demonstrated a commitment to developing new technologies to meet growing market demands.

“Given that the fast, accurate detection of a targeted data breach is a top concern for most companies and the proven value of our Magna solution, it’s fitting that we would be singled out in CRN”

LightCyber enables companies and organizations to prevent targeted attacks and related data breaches, by detecting an intruder after they have circumvented legacy prevention systems but before theft and damage typically occur. The LightCyber Magna Active Breach Detection platform utilizes behavioral profiling, not technical artifacts used by legacy threat prevention systems, to detect the anomalous operational behaviors that an attacker must perform once they land inside an unfamiliar network. LightCyber Magna platform provides a highly accurate and actionable way to find and stop an active data breach.

“Solution providers continue to keep their finger on the pulse of emerging technology in order to stay ahead of customer needs. The exciting technology vendors recognized in this year’s Emerging Vendors List don’t disappoint—the innovative technologies they bring to the table provide channel partners with product options that will propel their success into the future,” said Robert Faletra, chief executive officer of The Channel Company. “We congratulate 2015’s Emerging Vendors for their outstanding efforts and for delivering cutting-edge technology solutions that will continue to evolve the IT channel.”

LightCyber works exclusively with channel partners and is dedicated to the channel sales model. Over the last few months, the company has significantly expanded its channel partner network and plans to nurture and grow it even more over the year.

“Given that the fast, accurate detection of a targeted data breach is a top concern for most companies and the proven value of our Magna solution, it’s fitting that we would be singled out in CRN,” said Gonen Fink, chief executive officer, LightCyber. “We are honored to be named a 2015 Emerging Vendor by CRN and placed at the top Coolest Network Security Products list.”

Companies included in CRN’s 2015 Emerging Vendors list were founded in 2009 or later and are actively working with channel partners in North America. The list, along with information about each vendor, will be published in CRN’s August 2015 issue and will be available online at www.crn.com.
