Cyren Cloud Security Recognized in Cyber Defense Magazine’s Annual Awards

 

McLean, VA – April 18, 2018 – Cyren (NASDAQ: CYRN) announced today it received Cyber Defense Magazine’s top honor in the sixth annual CDM InfoSec Awards. Cyren Cloud Security, the company’s integrated internet security platform, was recognized as a winner in the SaaS/Cloud Security category.

 

Purpose-built for the cloud, Cyren is an internet security company that is successfully stopping cyber threats on the web and in email faster and better than traditional security vendors. Cyren’s solutions are architected around the fundamental belief that security is a race against time – and, as cyber threats become more sophisticated, our cloud security solutions deliver the speed, scale and automation needed to detect and block threats as they emerge on the internet. Cyren Cloud Security is a SaaS security platform for enterprises to protect their employees, data and IP, featuring capabilities that include web security, email security, DNS security and cloud sandboxing.

 

“It is an honor to be recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Dan Maier, vice president of marketing at Cyren. “We take great pride in our 100% cloud security innovations and our ability to deliver the fastest, most sophisticated detection and protection at scale. But our success ultimately comes from protecting our customers – enterprises of all sizes continually praise our ability to stop dangerous threats, including phishing and ransomware attacks, before they reach users. This award is a testament to their success.”

 

Services on the Cyren Cloud Security platform may be licensed individually or purchased as a suite. The platform services are quick to deploy, require minimal set-up, and have no hardware to install or maintain.

 

·Cyren Web Security – provides a quick-to-deploy, easy-to-manage SaaS secure web security gateway product for business. Multi-layered cloud defenses protect users from advanced malware, ransomware, and phishing wherever they are, and on whatever device they may be using, while a powerful policy and reporting engine provides superior visibility and control of web usage.

 

·Cyren Email Security – a cloud-based secure email gateway that filters an organization’s inbound and outbound email to protect users from spam, malware and phishing, and ensuring uninterrupted email communications. It includes the full integration of cloud-based sandboxing as an additional layer of inline, real-time email threat protection. It also includes “time-of-click” protection and enhanced zero-day threat intelligence with completely integrated email archiving and e-discovery.

 

·Cyren DNS Security – keeps users safe from web-borne threats and blocks inapproapriate content, allowing businesses to quickly and easily protect employees at headquarters, visitors in remote offices, customers at retail stores, or students on campus. Featuring simple policy-based set-up, businesses can block malicious phishing attempts and botnet sites, enforce safe-search, and ensure a good web experience for users.

 

 

 

 

·Cyren Sandboxing – an advanced layer of web and email security that protects an organization against breaches and data loss from today’s sophisticated threats -- even if previously unknown. Zero-day exploits, targeted attacks, and Advanced Persistent Threats are increasingly “sandbox aware,” as hackers use diverse strategies to evade detection by traditional sandboxing appliances. Cyren’s unique cloud sandbox array technology is able to tease out the full behavior of malicious files and embedded URLs targeting users.
