Press Release —
SAN JOSE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Balbix Inc., provider of the industry’s first system for cybersecurity posture transformation, announced today that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Balbix to its 2019 Emerging Security Vendors list. The annual list honors recently founded, up-and-coming security vendors that solution providers should be aware of.
Balbix was named to the list for its BreachControl platform which uses specialized AI algorithms to discover and analyze the enterprise attack surface. The Balbix system provides a 100 times more accurate view of breach risk than traditional methods. Balbix enables a broad set of vulnerability and risk management use cases that help enterprises to transform their cybersecurity posture and avoid breaches.
“Analyzing and improving enterprise cybersecurity posture is no longer a human scale problem,” said Chris Griffith, vice president of business development and alliances, Balbix. “To get an accurate idea of breach risk, security teams need to analyze huge amounts of data – up to several hundred billion time-varying signals across the enterprise network. Balbix’s AI-powered system enables CISOs to continuously analyze this high-volume, high-velocity cybersecurity data and gain real-time visibility into their breach risk. Balbix also provides prioritization and gamification of actions to drive cyber-risk reduction.”
CRN’s Emerging Security Vendors are vetted and selected by CRN’s editorial team, honoring technology suppliers driving innovation in the industry. Emerging Vendors provide state-of-the-art technology to help solution providers meet complex IT market demands, achieve bottom-line results and deliver best-in-class offerings.
“CRN’s 2019 Emerging Vendors list recognizes new, rapidly growing vendors that are making significant IT channel contributions,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “It honors groundbreaking vendors that provide sophisticated technology to drive channel growth — and remain committed to ongoing innovation to shape the channel for years to come.”
The Emerging Vendors list will be featured in the August 2019 issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.CRN.com/EmergingVendors.
