San Jose, CA, —Balbix, Inc., provider of the security industry’s first breach avoidance platform, today announced that The Business Intelligence Group has named BreachControl™ the winner of the 2018 Fortress Cyber Security Awards in the Analytics/Breach Prevention category. The inaugural program sought to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that are working to keep our data and electronic assets safe among a growing threat from hackers.

Balbix BreachControl™ is the industry’s first system to leverage specialized artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning to provide enterprises with continuous predictive assessment and control of breach risk. The system helps the enterprise improve security posture by adopting a risk-based approach to vulnerability management.

It’s about helping customers get ahead of the breach.”
